many scientists look to explain technology at varying levels of detail to make tech understandable. some cranks try to do the reverse: lots of terminology to try sound convincing and smart to lay audience. it in no way fools scientists, but then it's not designed to.
your litmus test is if an actual expert listening pulls grimace and walks out. people doing this kind of thing, are social engineers: they can be clever at manipulating scenarios, eg a common technique is to discourage tech audience attending: enough technobabble in invitation...
like pyramid scheme pitches, onecoin etc. put illogical to professional investor material in the invite, so they do not come and then ask difficult questions under protest at the nonsense they are hearing. tone, posture is more important than content. it's not for a tech audience
