Spent about an hour going through some bullshit paper for uni.

I mean, I like research but I also think we should hang some people for how bullshit and unreadable and full of crap their papers and articles are.

    Rants I didn't get to post because of the time restriction:

    Some ranters got way too much time on your hand, man! They have to find something better to do than to rant about others posting jokes/memes or even reposting. I mean, I'm not a fan of reposting myself but I don't go batshit on people who do repost :P

    And maybe they should stop projecting other issues in their lives on a community where people are looking for some fun.

    Completely agree. Some papers are a pain to read.

    I don't get it how those people don't understand that they're hurting themselves by doing this shit on purpose. Well written articles seem smarter, more professional and are more successful.

    Worst is, when they have code examples and the code is even more unreadable than the paper.

    Once I had to read a paper about a special algorithm which was quite hard to understand. I was happy when I saw the repository with an implementation by the author, until I saw the code...

    Agreed. And a good chunk of the scientific community seems to think that writing horrible, impenetrable English is the way to write papers.

    It's worse in places like India, had a prof who literally told me that my language wasn't "complex and impressive" enough. Wtf.
