There are so many problemsetters in codeforces. Nowadays, anybody is becoming a problemsetter. But not all of them are good.

So who do you think is the most terrible problemsetter and why? Please share your insights here so that we can know which contests to avoid and which ones to give. Thank you.

Disagree. Becoming problem setter is not an easy job. Anyone can not just come and become a problem setter.

I know some I don't like that much.

But it is bad style to blame them here like you are doing. If you like them or not, still they are doing the work for your fun.

How about changing the question to who are the best problemsetters? This would be more helpful I think. In my opinion pikmike and vovuh are the best.

This question is not in P.

Problem setter don't set problems to make you feel bad or something. All problem setters are just trying to contribute to the community.

Problems have types, and some people tend to like specific kind of problems. There is a high chance that someone hates the problem setter you love the most.
