Well, I don't feel you're an idiot at all. That's fairly clever and as I said before - with just the one message, no clues about subject matter, and no clues about encryption algorithm - these things can be very difficult. Perhaps you should just assume no one here could solve it.

I don't feel like you're an idiot. As I said before, these things can be very difficult without multiple messages, some idea of the content (guess some words), and/or some idea of the algorithm used. I think you can assume no one could solve this.

Hey, Fred! How many times are you going to reply! Are you getting competitive about number of forum posts?

I solved the puzzle but you actually had a couple words misspelled that would have made this a pain had you not given the clue.

2nd row, last word, 2nd letter is wrong
5th row, 3rd letter is wrong

Just stumbled upon this site, not sure if it would be socially acceptable to post the solution.

Interesting quote though.

Default do it!

i wish someone would, just to bring it full circle---i had no idea what it was all about to begin with, and no interest in trying to solve it.
