i still don't see the harm. especially when it's never been officially "wrapped up" or closed by admin. i haven't noticed that he has ever indicated whether or not he is still pondering this issue, or that he has closed the discussion (which i'm sure he can do if he desires), so additional input isn't hurting anything.

I'm with those who say leave things as they are. I believe this can help a person become a more skilled player.

I don't need training wheels all the time.

Default Help with a Solver

Obviously everyone here uses some sort of cheating method and doesn't do these legit. I was wondering if someone could help me with what application to download for doing cryptograms faster.

oh boy, here we go again!

I get it. I didn't believe/understand it at first but what you see is completely true. Spend some time around here and you'll start to see how people get so quick at solving these things. Aside from becoming very good at quickly picking out patterns, when you play thousands of these on this site you start to get repeats which helps speed as well.

Not downplaying the ability of the top people here at all, they are VERY good. But there are still very short puzzles that I swear if you haven't seen them before or had some clue what the quote was already the times would be much longer.

IMO it's OK to be skeptical, not accusatory. Stick around, check it out
