That actually is a real bummer, Binx. I've read some very promising stories -- well, tried to read them, but because of the structural mess, I couldn't wade through it with enough force to really enjoy the story itself. I could sense there was a good underlying story, but it needed a lot of work.

And it is those who don't think they need an editor and just decide throwing "whatever" out there to see if it'll fly is a great idea (not!) . . . that's what hurts us indie authors. We need to raise the bar by encouraging indies to build a good team (betas, editor, formatter, cover artist, etc.) who'll all work with the author to turn out the best potential product. Takes work, and many people are too impatient to go through all of the necessary steps.
