There are several puzzles that I've repeatedly solved in record-breaking time, yet the old record is still listed. I suspect that record times are only for the first time we're given a puzzle, that...

Yes, it can be frustrating! When that happens, I report it using the "Questions or Comments?" box at the bottom of the page (I type the quote as it is in the puzzle, and point out the error(s)). I...

FWIW, I've seen a few impossibly fast times (e.g., 4 seconds for a 4-line quote, which I reported to admin), but only a very few. If I solve a quote as fast as I can, it's almost always either a new...
