We have studied metallic phases of the title organic conductors by means of STM at room temperature. An image obtained in the salt with M=Rb is very different from a typical one in the salt with M=Cs. We suggest "vertical stripe" charge ordering in the salt with M=Rb at room temperature, which can naturally explain its anomalous metallic behavior.
