Just another academic blogger
At this point in the semester, I'd be happy to see invested energy. I'm a little tired of doing a 15-week tap dance.What's irritating about the paper?
cut-n-paste? and/or, lack of even peer-level editorial suggestions, such as "dude, this is way too long, and you're repeating yourself, and wtf with these cites?"
Heh heh. You said craptasticness. Love.Not fun. I know.
This is why page limits are your friend. Seriously, my second-year students are writing five two-page papers rather than one ten-page paper.Reading two pages of a misfire is a lot easier to handle than ten pages, let me say. Reading twenty pages? Do not want!
It was irritating, but not a bad paper. It's hard to separate those two sometimes, alas.
