This is a problem (mod the hyperbole)

Here is a neat article complaining that CS students these days "don't study algorithms", can't spell or write properly, etc. I do not know to what extent the assertions hold, but it seems to me they cannot be that far from reality. I remember looking at 4 year college/university graduation works (thesis, or whatever else they are called depending on the college/university) at one point, and finding something equivalent to "how I spell checked XML documents using the standard Microsoft tool set". Just sad...
