If only this organism would devour one of these organic letters.
Y to V > > DETRITIVORE
wasn't there once someone called wofaholicodoc?

This was started on 10/23/08 by coffeebean with the word 'brain'.
Could we in a last combined effort bring it back to a five letter word before or on the 23 and blow it to kingdom come?

Ooh, that would be...fitting. A thread that lasted exactly a year! Amazing.

Ok--I won't even try to put which, or how many, letters were saved/lost/changed, but I'll go with
RETRIEVED.

It's gotta be shorter!

We call it wielding a blunt ax, but your action seems to be....fitting.

I shall hasten the cause. If we all swim down we can escape this net.

At least I TRIED.

It's getting ahead of ourselves, since the 23rd isn't until eleven days from now, but it would be fitting to come back to BRAIN at one year, with Coffeebean doing the honors. (Can we refrain from doing it immediately?!)

And unless people are truly getting tired of this, there's no reason to end it at one year. We might however learn a lesson: too many letters gives too few choices, and too little room to maneuver, and can spoil the game.
