My apologize, I didn't express my opinion correctly. I absolutely agree your opinion. Just so much cases let me always take care of performance issue.
I wouldn't say you "shoudln't". It depends on how frequently this method is invoked. But this solution is way more readable than any of those performance optimized implementations.
Until performance becomes an issue, I favor readable/understandable implementations over fast ones.
For performance shouldn't use any string operation.
