8. I hate to complain, because the message is important ...
But I cringe every time I read such a poorly constructed sentence. It has to do with my catholic school career, you see, where nuns would prowl the classroom with sticks waiting to pounce on a student with a run-on sentence ... And THAT one has three separate clauses jammed together ...

A little punctuation would go a long way here. Even a simple hyphen to separate the ideas - Because trying to read it as written is quite a challenge ....

It's my problem, I suppose ....
