Default Fixing typos/grammar/attributions on cryptograms

Hi everyone -

First off, an apology for having put this off for so long... I've finally spent some time this weekend going through the Crypto-comments to fix typos, misquotes, misattributions, etc. in our cryptogram library. Thanks to everyone who has so helpfully pointed them out over the years!

I'm sure I've missed more than a few comments because, quite frankly, we now have more than a quarter of a million comments in the database and I just can't read through them all.

From here on out, if you see an error in any of our quotes or attributions, please leave a comment and include the words "please fix" or "please update" in them. I now have a script that will automatically sort for these phrases and push them to the top of the queue to be fixed ASAP.

Thank you!

Default Thank You!

Stephen, I can't imagine having your job....trying to keep all of us happy! We can be a snarly bunch when we find errors, so thanks for giving us a new "tool" to help you deal with them! I don't know how other folks feel, but I'd be lost without this daily challenge to my old brain cells!
