Not gonna lie. I often only skim through JLU-For-Me's posts because I have a hard time understanding them. But I find picking on a poster's intellegence for their posting style about a hundred times more obnoxious than bad grammar itself.

I don't think it's bad grammar per se. I think it's tweet-speak; or texting lingo.

Either way, he should take into consideration what is being said.

I like him, but sometimes I can't follow his thought process. Less contractions and more sentence/paragraph breaks would be a welcomed addition. Plus, it would help alleviate this "run-on sentences" on "run-on paragraphs" scenario.

Visually it's just difficult to read, and so I tend to skip them. Our eyes are attracted to things that are simple and elegant. I hope the rest of you guys don't go color crazy on us. It just reminds me of MySpace

Hey guys. Suggestions are ALWAYS appreciated when they are done in a non insulting way. You guys are just stating some preferneces in a nice way. It was the first post about my Grammar on the previous page that seemed to be in a negative tone. I only responded to let that person know I'm not bothered if someone skips my posts for whatever reasons. I have noted that if you read @ least half the posts on AFI you will find so many grammatical mistakes it's beyond measure. BUT I'm not here to correct other people's posts, nor would I care to. I'm here to read about the TOYS I collect & to hear what others are thinking or what they're finding in regards to our shared hobby.

*OK, I hope this is now put to rest - as a debate about grammar is the last thing this site needs.

*Has Anybody found these 2 new JLU 3-pks anywhere online with a comparable price to BBTS or retail? I just hope it doesn't become either a Volcana situation or the opposite, a DISCO Brainiac situation. I want JLU to continue for a very long time, so I hope we don't have any bumps in the road that could cause this line to suffer & end. Overproduction, price increases & bad distribution have plagued the JLU line long enough! I hope these 3-pks are released at retail soon, along with the other 2010 missing 3-pks.

No luck in my area yet, and that's after clearing out two Targets of three packs. :(

I live in Milwaukee, and considering I haven't seen them yet in southeastern Wisconsin, I think I need to make that forty-minute drive down I-94.
