silly question?
 
i have what may be a silly suspicion. does anyone else notice, that is, are the puzzles sometimes designed...are letters that are used picked purposely to confuse or mislead the puzzle solver?

silly question
 
yes they are, let me further explicate, puzzles are meant to be so, expect the unexpected

The site isn't always out to get you
 
I've actually noticed sometimes a stand-alone letter will be an A or I, making the choice easier. (Unless it's an Alexander Pope quote, in which case all bets are off.) Same with the one after an apostrophe being an S or T. The awkward letters like Q, X, and Z do seem to pop up a lot, though.

Another silly question?
 
Are there any quotes on site that actually use all the letters of the alphabet?

Just curious.
