How to solve

Often I look for familiar patterns in words or phrases. Sometimes I just get a gut feeling about a puzzle and go with it. Sometimes my gut feeling is wrong, but far from always. Basically, see what...

I've since managed to get a half dozen records, all of which will shortly be broken, I'm sure.

New Game Board

I love the changes. I particularly love that it puts you in the first letter space when it opens the puzzle. That saves a second or two while I click or tab to that. I had a letter used duplicately,...

Overtly political comments

They will come up. Politics and the government and the administration are all parts of our lives. To me, as long as it's civil, I don't mind the interchange. When someone throws out a hard right wing...

It appears to be a crypto generating program, though I'm not familiar with the language.

Not sure how well it works. One key is to make sure the encrypted letter is not the same as the plain text...

Cryptograms

Do you even know what a crypto is?

You posted a couple of half assed riddles. Those are not cryptos.

And many of us have literally hundreds of forum posts.

And you are most decidedly NOT a leader.

Unlike you

Most of us are here to do cryptograms, and only chat and post as we feel moved to.

Then again, how would someone who had only completed four cryptos even know.

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.

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.

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.
