I discovered this anagram for foobar. You've attributed it to John Doe?

Many times, an anagram is independently discovered by many people. We've listed it here because John Doe sent it to me and claimed the authorship of the anagram. If you've any dispute, please contact the person directly. We can't arbitrate in such matter. The best we can do it remove the disputed anagram from the site.


I discovered this cool anagram. Would you like to know?

You are welcome to send your anagrams. Please send them to us at email address (words AT wordsmith.org). If you'd like to get credit for an anagram, you must include following two statements in your message:
  1. I created this anagram.
  2. I'd like to get credit for this anagram.
In the absence of these statements, the anagram you submit will be attributed to the great anagrammer, Anonymous. Also see the previous question.

Due to high volume of messages we can't reply to you unless we feature your anagram here.
