Who Writes These Puzzles??
Again, I ask, who writes these darn puzzles?? Is it one person? A team of people? A computer word-generator?? Whoever or whatever it is, they need to quit being complacent and think up some new words!! I do at least the hard and medium puzzles every day, and I can give you ten words that each have a 75% chance of being in either the medium or hard puzzle, or both: Era, eon, age, eer, ere, ewe, erne, ore, oer, and owe. Not to mention any clue that includes doing something “again.” You can’t just use the prefix “re” before anything and make it into a real word! 95% of puzzles also include one or more clues for a random Greek letter... There are 24 Greek letters! They might as well use the clue “pick a number between 1 and 24”! Not only do they reuse the same clues every day, they aren’t even good! “Before, to a bard”??? These clues are so, for lack of a better word, cheesy! If it’s one person writing these puzzles, read a dictionary! If it’s a team, have more brainstorming meetings! If it’s a computer, supply it with a new database! So I say, pun intended, to whomever or whatever writes these stinking puzzles, get a clue!
