Is the gratuitous use of parentheses still in full effect in academic writing? It was really one of my least favorite devices. I found a lot of the writing that employed the "parentheses wit" to be (to)rturo(us) and f(ill)ed with (pole)mic (up)percl(ass)man jargon. I'd rather have quotes, "written" or "air."
