    --DITTO-- the format of your posts are definitely not reader friendly. Glad
    to see somebody else finally comment on that. One alternative would be to
    just LIST the new releases and refer your readers to your web site for the
    specifics or details about the specs and special content (which by the way,
    is usually meaningless junk for the most part - like knowing that a release
    has "Four multi-angle scene studies" and "Four Art Galleries" is really
    going to make someone run out and buy that specific edition).

    Always willing to listen to constructive comments. If you noticed I changed
    to a more list oriented format with the very next post. I hope this new
    format is easier on the eyes. Thank you for your comments.

    yes, you did good, I believe a definite improvement.

  6. I agree, I would almost always skip your posts since it was too
    difficult to find the DVD titles without careful reading. The list
    format is much better.
