'Move Strength' - details please
Please understand that, when I wrote about a 'bug in the software' being a 'big deal', I was replying to b-birney about a specific issue that he posted about (the letter 's').
I'm not sure I misunderstood you. The "S" issue was that the singular of a word had been shown as 100%, whereas if you added the S you'd have a higher score and so the 100% indication was false. Right? If so, I really don't think that particular issue was a big deal. I take the "give them a break" attitude on this one.
I did not mention chess when making that specific 'Feature Request' nor did I make any demands.
Sorry. I didn't mean to say that you'd mentioned chess, though I can now see how "To mention chess again" could be so understood in that sentence. Also, I was using "demanding" loosely.
I agree with you that the 'recurring misfunction' you mention should be fixed. It appears to be an unpredictable bug which are, of course the hardest to fix eg a bug caused by some adblocking software of which the programmer is unaware.
I doubt that it's anyone's ad-blocking software, since when it's screwed up it's screwed up for everybody. The programmer is generally going to be unaware of the source of a bug when he first encounters and tries to deal with it, but regardless of the difficulty he should eventually figure out what the problem is and correct or somehow avoid it. We're still waiting for that in this case.
@roymccoy what makes you so angry? That I can spell? Have to wonder about someone as angry as you are. Done responding ..as I often say as long as I know I do not cheat that is what counts. I am sorry you are so intimated by someone that can spell. Happy Holidays. Done responding to you now
@roymccoy what makes you so angry?
LOL. What a lousy read.
That I can spell?
Your misspelling of "anagrammer" has nothing to do with this.
Have to wonder about someone as angry as you are.
Okay, do that.
Done responding ..as I often say as long as I know I do not cheat that is what counts.
That's what all the psychopathic cheats say.
What I finally seem to have figured out here is that you're defining cheating strictly as using an anagram dictionary or a solver. If that defines cheating, you're good. But if cheating is understood generally as taking unfair advantage of someone, you're cheating.
I am sorry you are so intimated by someone that can spell.
No, what really intimates me is someone that doesn't know the difference between "intimate" and "intimidate".
Happy Holidays. Done responding to you now
Good – I always enjoy having the last word!
@roymccoy intimidated. .auto correct not me, but gave me a big laugh
@roymccoy It is sad you do not realize I do not need quick thinking just facts. You assume that I cheat, now you assume it was a quick thought. Nowhere to you realize it is just truth. I am sorry for you and happy holidays. Your thoughts are your own. Enjoy them
You assume that I cheat,
I don't assume you cheat – you announce it in public.
Nowhere to you realize it is just truth.
You got a weird .auto correct.
@roymccoy you assume. I say I use my anagrammer..my brain
I say I use my anagrammer..my brain
You also say you use the score thermometer without informing your opponent.
You also said you were done responding to me.
In any event what I'm assuming, if anything, is that taking unfair advantage of an opponent is cheating, and the first definition of cheat in my dictionary confirms this: "act dishonestly OR UNFAIRLY in order to gain an advantage, especially in a game or examination" (my emphasis).

Thanks for the book link. I'm a little sceptical of learning lots of common letter combos, happy to just stick with the ones already in my head like 'ing' and 'ion' whatever. I don't see how any book can do much more than that.
I sometimes use anagram sites when commenting eg to turn someones moniker into a phrase relevant to the discussion is all. For example, 'beta letter's for 'betterlate' when I wish him all good fortune in finding better letters. LOL
If I am writing poetry I just use rhyming apps. Here's one:
Bereft of experience
(A poem inspired by a George Monbiot text)
Oh yes maybe for you it was this way,
you were taught to postpone pleasures.
That Rome wasn't built in a day,
Must be patient and adventurous.
But me want everything at once.
Though bereft of experience.
For me it is different,
I wait for no man.
Ten second span!
The iPhone generation
Give it all to me now!
No pain, no frustration,
No joy and no sorrow.
I never watched WALLEE,
I never read 1984.
Bereft of experience,
I am an adult child.
Am I alive? Is there no death?
When will life begin.
But I want your philosophy,
I want to know what you know.
I follow the way I am given,
mysogyny and no history.
Though I overflow with love,
I am virtual world bankrupt.
So what can I rebel against?
What have you got?
Thanks for reminding me of the book, which I've consequently now added to an Amazon order I've been slowly putting together. I can afford $13.73 and the book looks like it might be helpful:
The puzzles in Anagrammar have been designed to turn a novice or average wordgame player into an expert at finding words from random sequences of letters. Ever wonder how the experts do it so quickly? It will be no surprise if you follow the specific instructions offered for solving these puzzles. It starts with very easy word-matching puzzles and slowly works its way toward more challenging anagrams, and includes teaching you the best and simplest method for finding seven- and eight-letter words. Includes more than 6000 puzzles. Once you have trained your brain with the main body of puzzles, the author also offers two novel puzzle types that use your newfound skills.
I already know how to look for ING, ION, etc. too, but I've often felt that I had something to learn and it's at least imaginable that this may provide it. At the very least it looks like a good bedside companion for pre-sleep moments. Unlike a novel, you don't have to worry about where you're going to stop or keeping your place.
@roymccoy I did not say you need a book for strategy but to improve games we all need to develop a strategy
Look again – I didn't say you said I needed a book for strategy. I said I didn't a book for "it", namely your cheating strategy of secretly using the score thermometer against opponents unaware of it and likely not having it at their disposal. That's the strategy in question here, though I suppose you're flattering yourself by allusion to brilliant, sophisticated strategies such as not wasting your S's or not setting your opponent up for triples.
@roymccoy thanks for the entertainment, Guess you enjoy making up stories, arguing and being angry. I don't.
@roymccoy thanks for the entertainment[.]
Likewise. Happy holidays, cheater.
Guess you enjoy making up stories,
Name one story I've made up.
I'll argue about something if I feel like it, but I'm not arguing about this. You may accuse me of being repetitive if you like, and I'll confess to this because I'm repeatedly saying the same thing: that you're a psychopathic or very unintelligent cheat.
and being angry.
So you either can't read, or think I don't know when I am or am not angry, or are implying that I'm dishonest about my feelings. If I were to be angry (which I'm not), it would be because I'm farting around with this chat rather than doing something more useful and productive with my time.
Bully for you. I guess this indicates the superiority of your personality.
