What seems a bit off to me, in these things, is what appears to be the carefully forced accents used in their writing. Pretty neat window dressing, but they are all virtually the same from one to another. They butcher the grammar just enough to make it all seem exotic, but still easily read.

If the appeal were genuine, the writing would much better structured, I think.

Anyone else notice that?
