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.

Our writing standards require that advanced material be properly labeled; separated from elementary material; and also introduced in ways that less-advanced readers can begin to understand them. 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.
