Hayekian comments on student papers

Peter Klein at Organizations and Markets says that a grad student inspired these Hayekian Comments on Student Papers,
"The writer clearly suffers from a fatal conceit."

"Reading this proposal helps me understand the knowledge problem."

"Your paper appears to be the result of human action, but not human design"

"The proposed outline reveals how little people really know about what they imagine they can design."
In the comments section two additional comments were suggested,
"Spontaneous order does not apply to writing."

"Time spent on this paper was a malinvestment?"
Anything better?
