### Is a logit model with a pseudo-R^2 of less than 0.5 a worse model than a coin toss?

I have recently encountered the remark that if a logit model's pseudo $R^2$ is lower than $0.5$ the result is completely worthless because a coin toss is a better model. Is this interpretation correct?...

### Why is R2 not reported for GLMs based on last iteration of IRLS weighted least square regression with which it is fit

Given that GLMs are generally fit using iteratively reweighted least squares (based on a Fisher scoring algorithm to maximize the max likelihood objective, which is a variant of Newton-Raphson, see ...

### Why could pseudo $R$-squared (pseudo $R^2$) increase when I remove variables?

I have a multinomial logistic regression with $11$ independent variables. When I remove variables, the pseudo $R$-squared increases. Isn't this not supposed to happen? Why could this be happening?
