It certainly is. I stopped to re-read that monstrosity, thinking that the deficiency in understanding was my own. Obviously, others recognize bad writing when assaulted by its presentation.

Honestly, most bad writing is caused by sentences which are written for the ear rather than the eye and are too long.
