I’ve see lists of bad slides, but this one takes the cake! I wouldn’t have said anything if this diagram had been called a document, but it was called a slide. I expect military documents to be complicated. But I don’t expect them to make slides of these documents.

Do you have examples of bad slides that you can share?
