See, my main problem isn't with the writing in general (word choices,
sentence structure), because I get distracted by the incredibly lousy
punctuation. I mean, there's an editor there who is clearly not doing his
or her job. Lackey blatantly misuses commas repeatedly, such that I am
forced to mentally convert them to semicolons. It's dreadful.
