    Tom- I’m a long time follower as you know. But this weird way that you choose to use symbols & numbers and all kinds of other crap instead of just actual words make reading your posts a major mental challenge. I think you would like to have more people read your posts but I think that the way you post with this weird text is throwing people off and possibly losing you out on potential people who might take the time to interact with you. To use your own vernacular- please, I’m begging. I’ll do anything… make your posts easier to understand like they used to be. As a long term reader of your posts I’m just saying, following you is strenuous. Please revert back to normal English. If not, this long time reader may have to abandon you. It’s just too hard to figure out what you are trying to say.
