This or that


How would you think about:

Is “that” better than “this”?

Thank you!

Again, the preceding text is so horrendous that no one will notice the demonstrative pronoun choice. Why fix that when the rest of the text is abominable?

Because I have no idea about the the rest of the abominable text either, but I do feel “that” would be better than “this”: the only part I understand.
