referring to a dictionary before making your own guess [throwing up hands in horror e] Yeah--it's against the roolz! And nobody had better LIU before voting, neither!

Faldage and Jackie

Now something needs to be explained maybe. Why did I ask you about the yes or no of using a dictionary. Well, because I thought that maybe people brought up words that are as hard to get from a dictionary as it is to guess them. I must have overestimated you guys.

So you can drop your arms over this misunderstanding I hope.
It took me some time to clearly look at both you reactions.

It slowly dawned on me when you were talking on SQUINCH about grievances, Jackie. Gee,I'm a little embarrassed.

I guess if you want to be Hogmistress you can get the word from anywhere you want.

No, Faldage, no of course I don't want to be Hogmistress . I only want to learn to play that game , that's all. Just experience how it works. I only thought it more complicated than it really is.
Thanks for your answer.

It's not meant to be particularly complex. But once in a while you come across a word that's simple, ambiguous, sassy, obscure, silly, unexpected, impish, whatever, and you say "Now wouldn't THAT make a great Hogwash word!" and Presto, you're a Hogmistress!

[bowing and scraping emoticon] You would think, as many mistakes as I have made by now, that I might have learned not to be so quick to jump to conclusions...sigh.

I am sorry. [hug]

Don't understand from which crypt this turned up, but sure there will be another hogwash some time. Hogs will get dirty over and over again.

There was a spam posting between Candy and Jackie's just
prior to hers. The old ugg boot advertisement appeared.
I reported it, and pm'd Candy as to what to do when they
appear as so many advised me when I just responded to the
spam rather than using the 'contact us' button. Anu
told me in an email that the site tries to eliminate them
but they are coming in from China now.

Step one: Announce that a new round of Hogwash is in the works and what the word for the round is.

Step two: Receive private messages from all those submitting daffynitions for the round. If the sennight is running out with fewer daffynitions than desired, post a reminder on the invite thread.

Step three: collate the daffynitions, include the correct answer, and post in a seperate thread after seven days.

Step four: Post answer and voting statistics in a seperate thread after seven days

It sounds terrible
