I was playing a Word Puzzle and I selected a letter and was kick out of the game. When I tried to go back to it, it said "it appears you have already play this puzzle". It said to look up to see what puzzle is coming up next". I was on the second of five and this is not the first time this has happened. Has this happened to anyone else? What should I do? How do I report this the Sploofus?
Help..............! MaryMag

This has been happening to a lot of folks lately.

Go to "Your Sploofus Space"/"Player Support"/"Online Player Support"

Send in a support ticket. The editors can reset the word puzzle for you so you can take it!

It happened to me this A.M. Very soon after reporting it, the puzzle was sent back to me.

Is anyone else offended by the sugar and spice WP?

I didn't think it was offensive since it was equally insulting to men and women!

I am offended as long as it gets me some Scotch. Otherwise, I take it as about as humorous as the snips and snails one....

I'm sorry you found that puzzle offensive. I simply used quotes from famous people about 'girls'; not my opinion of girls!

As I was researching those two puzzles though, I found it very odd that many of the quotes I found about 'boys' were sweet and inspirational, such as "One of the best things in the world to be is a boy; it requires no experience, but needs some practice to be a good one” (a quote that was not in the puzzle since it is too long). However, most of the quotes I found about 'girls' were sexual in nature or derogatory (Mae West being a prime example)!

I really searched to include a mix of funny and serious quotes in each puzzle. My other parameters were the space limitation of 80 characters per puzzle, and I tried to use quotes whose authors would be recognized by the majority of players.

Again, I apologize if it offended.

just in case no one gave you positive reinforcement, I thought the initials were very carefully selected...I spotted a Yoko Ono from the initials but did not guess anyone else.

Thanks for the response. I wasn't "terribly" offended. It just struck me when a couple of the girls puzzles referred to them as "bad". I don't look for things like that, it just kind of jumped out at me. I'm not a gung-ho libber.

Thanks sploofizz, for your thoughtfulness.
