TQOTD ?????

Hi
I just answered a question about the technicalities of the rugby game when I was expecting a question on books and authors. Anyone else had this strange occurrence befall them?

I received that same question a while back. Since I answered correct, I figured "Oh well, what the heck!" Happy Monday everyone!

Was it about a book about the "technicalities" of a rugby game?

At least , that would make some sense.

I think a Sploofus "TQOTD house-cleaning of obscure and misleading questions" may be needed.

No, the question had nothing to do with books or authors, although it did have an author...

I will paraphrase so as not to give away the question but it was something like : Which of these is not a position in the game of hockey?
Fullback, Forward, Midfielder, Sweeper, Quarterback.

Actually, that's an infamous question in the editors' circle. In the old days, Books and Authors was the default category for submitted TQOTDs -- the categories were in an alphabetical pulldown list and someone forgot to select the proper category. Now the default goes to Potpourri.

A lot of people have complained about "the rugby question in Books and Authors". but the editors are unable to move it. All I can say is that if you truly feel damaged by having gotten that question (you wagered based on it being a real book question), send in a Support Ticket, and we'll see what we can do.

There you go !!!! What about the Snooker question in Sports Soup. Snooker is a sissy table game, not a sport. Give me my 80 million points back. Rowlanda, you just gave me flashbacks again. I better get my shrink's number ready.
