There have been several posts recently where the posters have omitted to put any spaces between words. It’s not easy reading them especially on mobiles or if you have poor eysesight.

So please use the space bar (it's free to use) and create words, don’t just type one long word with punctuation in it as it.

And if the post is long please break it into paragraphs as it makes it easier for others to read and reply to especially if they are using smaller devices such as tablets and mobiles to access 

Thank you

A space bar   Sorry, couldn't resist...

But yes - I understand people are often feeling pretty shaken up when they post, but there isn't a lot of point in posting something if nobody can understand it!

  Laugh's on me, something strange has happened to that link - when I clicked it just now, I got a message that said "Hotlinking is for Monkeys!"  But typing the exact same address into the address bar manually still works fine.  Looked up "hotlinking" and it seems to mean linking directly to an image file on another site, rather than the page it was on, which is apparently bad manners.  You learn something every day.  Well, it wasn't intentional, that was the form the Web search gave me that address in!  Did a bit of tinkering, this should now work:

I've got a bit of a feeling that your second link might be faulty also, (lol)

It goes to the Star Wars holiday special website.

There's nothing wrong with the link grams, it shows people sat at a bar which is supposedly in space - hence space bar.

Nice one wombat!    

Isn't the English language great? You can really play around with the words.
