After reading the thread (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/368041) about one user who's gratuitous use of formatting in color, italics, bold, and parenthesis is well known I thought to speak out.

I admit that I don't always follow his intentions. sometimes it is because his reference to English puns, sometimes because of culture references and yes, sometimes I simply don't manage to follow his line of thought BUT This user is one of the most helpful and generous users I encountered here on the geek.

Too bad he's near illegible. Sounds like he's a cool guy, though.

Grognads is one of the funniest characters on the geek. I enjoy 99% of his posts, which is more than I can say for just about anyone else.

You are a lucky guy if you can understand 99% of his posts (or have a dictionary you aren't telling us about)

As you go through life you occasionally run into people who simply walk to a different drummer than the rest of us. They may dress a little funny or have a really odd sense of humor. At the end though when all is said and done you are glad to have had them along. It makes the journey a lot more fun. I see Robert as one of those people. Yeah I have trouble reading some of his posts and every once in a while he says something I completely disagree with. Truth be told though, I wouldn't want him to change a thing.

Most of the time if you ignore the formatting his posts read normally. The brain is used to automatically emphasizing words which are quoted or highlighted so it breaks up the normal fluid read-through most of us are used to. He seems to like to play with words and word combinations, such as: jaundiced goo Yellow text to play on the word jaundice, and a pictogram instead of a word.

Actually his writing is infinitely better than what the majority of people write on boards throughout the internet. Less typos and mostly correct English.

At first it annoyed the piss out of me, but as time went on i got used to it. I think it just takes some time to get over the initial shock. Then you start to realize he has a lot to say, just a funny way of saying it.
