Facebook released a detailed statement today stating that it has identified and removed a number of pages and profiles for coordinated inauthentic activity. --Bob

The third paragraph contains a line that should have been phrased better, "But security is not something that’s ever done."

I won't put this in Frank's thread because I don't want to mess up his game, but answering my question about Streetcar Named Desire with a non-answer gratuitous slur of me is low, even by your minimal standards.

I read the post and (using the Moderator Log) confirmed that it hasn't been edited. Esto's post was an answer to your question. (How can Streetcar complete this list? Because you can complete a list in other ways than inserting an entry at the end of the list.) And it wasn't a slur.

I've certainly had my issues with Esto but in this case I think you owe him an apology. --Bob

I was just looking into this myself and was wondering what SSS was referring to...

That's good to know. But Frank quoted Esto's post, apparently in full, 12 minutes after Esto posted and significantly before SSS posted here, so I think we still have evidence that what we see now is what SSS saw then. --Bob

I noticed the timing as well. I also think Frank, who wants everyone to play nice in his game (and life in general), would have made specific note had there been a nasty name in Esto's post. So I, too, am curious as to what SSS is referring to...

I never said there was a nasty name. I took the post as one of Esto's snarky non-answers directed at me when I was honestly perplexed and intrigued as to how the answer fit into that particular clue (which Frank did answer a few minutes later with a reference to Pulitzer Prize winning plays).

I don't mind these sort of things in political threads, where it's pretty much par for the course, but I felt it was out of place in Frank's puzzle. Apparently, I'm in a minority of one on this issue, so I'm not going to go any farther on this.

WTF is wrong with you?

STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE
How does Streetcar complete a chronological list of movies that end with a movie from two years ago?
Completing a list does not specifically mean that a new list entry is going into the last position.
I thought you were asking how a movie from 1951 completes a list that ends with a movie from 2016. I thought I was absolutely clear and correct in stating that "completing a list" does not necessarily mean "adding the last entry to a list," just as others have read it.

How do you conceivably misinterpret my response as "a non-answer gratuitous slur of you?"

What I wanted to know was what Streetcar had in common with the other names on the list, and why it was being placed last in a chronological list after Fences, a movie from two years ago. Frank answered those questions a few minutes after your post.

What I took your answer for was a snarky non-answer that was intended as a dig at me. Par for the course for a lot of people on both sides of the spectrum on political threads but not something I would expect in one of Frank's puzzles, which is why I got upset and also took my response out of the puzzle thread. Since I appear to have overreacted here, I apologize.

You didn't ask that. I knew they were all Pulitzer Prize winners, but wasn't positive about AA nominations.

This is exactly what I answered in my post.

How could you see that as a non-answer? What was the "slur" that you alleged I had made?

silverscreenselect wrote:

Since you have previously stated that you are never wrong, I'm not sure about your sincerity here. I will play along and accept your apology.

Perhaps this can be a teachable moment for you. When you read everything through your hyper-partisan filter, you might get things wrong on occasion.


ETC: "hade" to "had"

I don't think Bob intended his response to be humorous. If so, his delivery was terrible.

Well, at least the commenting here doesn't get to this level:
