:I can't clarify the thinking of whoever wrote the sentences that you quote; in fact, I tend to think they illustrate what the author is complaining about. Early in the computer era "GIGO" (Garbage In Garbage Out) was a catchword reminding people that if the programs or data that you put into computers are garbage, all you'll get from the computer is more garbage. I tend to regard the sentences you have quoted as a pretty good sample of non-computerized garbage.
