1)The tendency of writers to pen down in 20 lines what can be essentially said in a few lines. Done deliberately to confound and confuse the reader.

2) The tendency of authors to think that the intelligence of an article is directly proportional to number of lines written.

In honor of Ayn Rand, whose novels often run into pages and pages and who takes 10 pages to explain what could be explained in a few lines more effectively.
