I wasn't being overly critical. I was stating my opinion. I found the article very hard to get through because of the way it was written; therefore, I got nothing out of it. (If you have to read a sentence more than once to figure out what the person is trying to say, then it isn't written properly.) Obviously English was not the author's first language, but if it is going to be posted on a site written in English, then it should be proofed by the editor of the site beforehand to make sure there are no typos and that it makes sense because it is a direct reflection on the professionalism of the site itself. (Magazine editors do that.) So, it is no reflection on the author, but rather the site's editor.
I am sure someone got something out of it. I am a newbie and didn't because of the way it was written. My opinion, to which I am entitled.
