"lowest common denominator of quality"
Thousands of lines of code with no comments? The only comments in the code are totally meaningless?
"Well, I guess that means they made a change after that line." Integration between separate software that is completely undocumented? No documentation whatsoever? No naming conventions? No proper indentation or readable code? No ER diagrams?
Code that works, but is an unmaintainable heap of shit?
Sounds like the Indian outsourcing work I have seen so far.
