1) It uses a single, absurdly wide column.  'Real' LaTeX users use
   two-column format when they wish to cram a document into as few pages
   as possible, rather than fiddle with the default LaTeX margins.
2) The paper refers to a "Figure 5" that doesn't exist.  I tend to see
   this sort of thing more often in Word docs...
3) All LaTeX documents should include at least one mathematical equation
   which cannot be created in Word (even if the equation is superfluous
   to the paper's content), just to show off...
