Some contributors, writing as if they really know their subject and are "only trying to help", have rendered a large number of our academic articles unusable by the average, typical reader. They say they are trying to make our work comprehensive; the result is instead to make our work incomprehensible.

They must serve the dual purpose of providing a reference for the advanced reader, but also helping the more typical reader to learn new and harder ideas.
