Although I agree with all of the points above, I should also point out that it is possible to learn from reading low-quality code as well, provided you understand that the code is bad.

Reading other people's code with an eye towards what works and what doesn't is a very important skill. Pay attention to the points that are hard to change or understand, these are things you don't want to do.

Negative examples can still help.
