Actually, we seem to have Russian Spam here,


because I seem to see a lot of Russian links.


Doesn't she realize this is an English language website? Does anyone want Stephen to add Cyrillic cryptos from Pushkin, Turgenev, Mendeleyev and Scriabin?

Bansai, do NOT give him any ideas! I have nothing against quotes from all over the world and many time periods, but please translate them into modern English for this site.

Besides, I have no idea how to make my computer type in Cyrillic.

Cool Let's get retro

But , does it have to be modern English, Lurker? Wouldn't it be fun, challenging and exciting if we had English idiom from bygone centuries? Samuel Johnson and Bennie the Frank have become too mundane. We need to shatter the confining barriers and explore new horizons. This site needs--nay, this site demands Geoffrey Chaucer



Whan that Aprill, with his shoures soote
The droghte of March hath perced to the roote
And bathed every veyne in swich licour,
Of which vertu engendred is the flour;
5 Whan Zephirus eek with his sweete breeth
Inspired hath in every holt and heeth
The tendre croppes, and the yonge sonne
Hath in the Ram his halfe cours yronne,
And smale foweles maken melodye,
10 That slepen al the nyght with open eye-
(So priketh hem Nature in hir corages);
Thanne longen folk to goon on pilgrimages
And palmeres for to seken straunge strondes
To ferne halwes, kowthe in sondry londes;
15 And specially from every shires ende
Of Engelond, to Caunterbury they wende,
The hooly blisful martir for to seke
That hem hath holpen, whan that they were seeke.

How many Akhenaten, Alexander Pope, and Franklin quotes have screwed up an otherwise good month?

Next up, Beowulf.

Keep the quotations in English please.

However, I do not have a problem seeing Cyrillic characters in the cipher (or any other foreign characters for that matter). I think it would be a bit interesting. But once solved, they should read in English.
