I'm curious as to what evidence there is of cheating as well - I don't know that I've seen any scores that indicate to me that anyone is cheating. I usually live in the 4x5 challenging realm.

I always do puzzles on the top row only, so if the clue structure doesn't lend itself to top row I'm SOL. I can do them using the other sections but I like to challenge my brain.

I disagree with this. I find those clues more useful after I've got some information in the grid. I scan for the shortest clues first because those are the ones that are simplest and can be either...

I seem to get groups of puzzles that I've played before, based on when I see comments from myself (Disclaimer - this might be a human's selective memory speaking). I've played ~100 this month, and...

Looks like the hint logic may be incorrect there, but here's the solution. There is enough information in the clues to get there.

That's unfortunate. I'm assuming you've done your homework and that the "unpatentable" has something to do with the nature of the business model, since "easily replicable" by itself does not...

I've gotten the Blue Moon hint twice. Both times it was a result of there being too many greater/less than clues for the hint generator to figure out, and I was able to work it out eventually.

An alternative to guessing that I used when I was still learning the puzzles - if you get completely stuck, you can use a hint. The hint will tell what clues and what logic it is using to get to the...

I disagree. If you don't have to do that yourself, you are getting computer assistance to fill in information you may not have realized about the puzzle.

How far do you want it to go? If it's...
