That is how shell works. The syntax is

if
  list-of-commands
then
  other-list-of-commands
else
  yet-another-list-of-commands
fi

I find [ "$?" -ne 0 ] above very confusion and illegible myself.

Why would you run another command that fails if the last one
succeeded?

But it is called "fsadm.sh", that's misleading.

"if" is fine, it was just to save me some typing.

for i in "$@"; do

would have been fine. Again, I can't think of any circumstance
where leaving $@ unquoted would make sense.
