Maybe distinguish 'ugly' from 'useless'? There are a great many ugly log
entries that certainly could not be called useless.

Musing...
. a log entry is useless when those who could benefit from it don't know it
exists or can't get to it;
. a log entry is less than useless when it has tokens but no information
. a log entry is ugly when it has redundant information, uses big words for
small ideas, or can't be parsed easily;
. a log entry is stupid when it tries to tell someone who doesn't care,
something they can't possibly understand or do anything about.

Mark.
