Horrible X

In the Face Book group:
The post had an image (in infrared) and description of an unexpected  X - like structure at the center of the milky way. The headline of the story declared this finding was horrible!
My comment:

How can this observation be called horrible???
The Z pinch or Bennett pinch has been known for many years.
It is horrible only to those that are unwilling to learn from the observation. The problem is 'believing is seeing' Based on what you believe you will try to see what you believe (confirmation). If the observation is unexpected then the belief must be questioned, and a better explanation for the observation must be found/developed.
