Cable Installers Unite! Ugly Installation Inside

Here's one from twitter:

The things that really confuse me about this nightmare mess:

1. Are those splices legitimate?

2. There is a cable raceway track literally touching this mess, why not use it?

3. Fire alarm system with dedicated red-jacketed cable = good. Draping fire cable over ceiling support grid = bad.

It is really difficult to know what's really going on here, but whatever the story, I'm wagering it's off to a rough start.

Am I just being a snob here? Does this look okay to you?
