It is not that a good challenge frightens me away, but more the apparent last-minute, kanban-style approach to putting the clues together for this daily challenge that is getting to me; rather, the choices seem to be lymphatic and poorly-chosen, this once fun game having fallen from its former vertex of clever word mixes and variation to a seemingly mechanical -- maybe even computerized -- selection process, which may eventually lead to its own floccinaucinihilipilification by players.
