I am encountering so much of this:

> I don't understand {thing}, therefore {thing} is too complicated.

> I can't figure out how to do {X} with {Y}, so we should completely replace {Y}.

Naturally {Y} gets replaced with something as equivalently complicated as {Y}, but the speaker has used it before, so therefore it is "less complicated."
