If you know the word "pessimal" [malus, pejor, pessimus = bad, worse,
worst], you should know that "most pessimal" is redundant - perhaps
allowable for emphasis - and that "optimized to be pessimal" is so much
an oxymoron it must be deliberate.  But why not just say "pessimized"?
Oh, stop being such a pessimist.   :-)
