The worst offenders as far as we are concerned are legalese and planning documents.
“Scrutiny” is legalese—but important legalese, because it describes how closely a court should review a law.
legalese is justified by the attempt to avoid ambiguity in a given situation.
Dense, pedantic verbiage in a language description, product specification, or interface standard; text that seems designed to obfuscate and requires a language lawyer to parse it. Though hackers are not afraid of high information density and complexity in language (indeed, they rather enjoy both), they share a deep and abiding loathing for legalese; they associate it with deception, suits, and situations in which hackers generally get the short end of the stick.
