Remove pass from body

Sourcery refactoring id: remove-pass-body

Description:

Removes a pass from the body of a conditional by inverting it

Before:

if not a:
    pass
else:
    return c

After:

if a:
    return c

Explanation:

It is much clearer for a conditional to do something in its main body than solely in its else clause. In the latter case anyone reading the code has to mentally invert the condition in order to determine the meaning.
