Indoctrination centers

I guess now to the alt-right, schools that teach people to think for themselves and do fact checking are considered "socialist/communist indoctrination centers" because they don't try to force the...

Do you check your recent games and monthly scores very often? I've regularly seen double loads, where it shows I've "gotten" a puzzle that I never saw. I try to check every ten puzzles or so, but...

Seriously?

You give something with no word breaks and say can you solve it?

Try a crypto breaking site - https://quipqiup.com/ Though even there you probably need word breaks.

Other languages

I might try French, if there were some, but that would be about it and I suspect I'd be terrible at French for some time.

You are probably right about cost vs benefits. - not many premium members,...

Your name is clearly descriptive - nothing at all wrong with that.

Another part of why I chose mine is that it was not clear to most people - though somewhat memorable.

Where my name came from

Missed this way back when, but I wasn't playing much then.

My screen name comes from Judaism, from the High Holy Day prayer, the Vidui Ashamnu, which is sung during services then. We confess as a...

Cabela's ad

Ads on the site are a valid subject for discussion. You certainly have the right to ignore any discussions that you think veer into the political.

Both those on the left and those on the right make...

How long

I originally joined in July 2007, but all the data from before Feb 2008 was lost in the great crash. Largely quit playing for several years before I resumed last year.

Guns have very little to do with protecting human lives.

Solvable

Long ago, Bansai posted a crypto of a pangram in a forum or chat post. Realizing it was a pangram, I googled and found a list of pangrams and matched the letter pattern to Bansai's crypto. With that,...

Don't know of any on this site, but there are some out there.

Bansai

Bansai is a touch typist, has a fast internet connection, fantastic pattern recognition, and a super memory for quotes.

I've been as fast as 10 seconds for a single puzzle, but never faster than...

Average time

One or two bad times can skew the average time. The fewer puzzles solved during the month, the easier it is for a few to have a big impact. Look at your recent games and see if there is anything...

Article from a defender of Teresa

Born as Agnes Bojaxhiu in Macedonia in 1910, Blessed Teresa came to public attention relatively late in life, but when she did, her impact was profound. In 1969, Malcolm Muggeridge hosted a BBC...

5 Responses to the Ridiculous Rancor of Some Toward Mother Teresa

Even when I was an atheist I thought it quite absurd whenever comfortable first-world atheists would viciously attack...

Mistake

Sorry, I should have looked first. I know better than to reply to a twit who has only done one cryptogram on the site - period. This person is not a player, he is simply a troll.
