@Josh61 Not waste, rather that author doesn't care about publicity for some reason or writes for himself... No wate connotation here...

comment Origin and meaning of “from out of left field”
+1 for example of (now rare) long form writing abound with rare words (almost on the verge of "inkhorn-laden writing") :) Though it's a little bit hard to follow because of lenght it's also a nice example of how widely accepted etimologies can be incorrect (there are plenty of other examples, e.g. "black friday"'s most polular etimology is not the right one)
