I'd go with "not well-behaved".

In other news, I received a screenshot from a vendor today and in his internet search box he had, "how to search for celebrity nude photos."

That made my day.

Why b/c discontinuous? I've always hated that "not well-behaved" term because it's used as a synonym for "not doing what I want" but isn't well-defined unless you know the speaker's preferences.

Fits and starts is probably most apt. The only thing which seems to fit into the ebb-and-flow model is the *rate* of learning.

That's the reason I like that term so much - it sneakily hints that the statistician is at least a tiny bit frustrated about his functions, and I revel in the schadenfreude.
