This is a normal post A quote from the Guardian article:
the seeds are low-cost collateral in a “brushing scam”
So, why is the Guardian fucking useless?

This is a normal post Oh, found it.
Thirteen paragraphs in. Perhaps useless isn't the most appropriate term, but let's be honest, they're beginning to follow a format somewhat more associated with the tabloids than the fine upstanding leftist Journalism the paper was known for a decade or two ago, aren't they?

This is a normal post They sacked a load of experienced writers and researchers
as well as other specialists deemed out of place in the cosmic digital multispatial social media lounge.

You've always had to read Guardian articles backwards though, that's nothing new.

The stuff they do well is political gossip/scandals, and political campaigning. Everything else is woolly, vague, and probably secretly sponsored by Apple.

This is a normal post Not really, no.
You didn't properly read the article before you commented. That's why journalism is so shit these days. People can't be arsed to read articles anyway, so why spend time writing them.
The essence of the article is not about explaining what a brushing scam is, but the potential biosecurity risc involved with this particular one.
