Killer Sudokus back to what they were: easy and medium on Sun/Mon/Tue/Wed,
medium and hard on the other days.

This moderately top player has long been advocating doing away with killer sudokus altogether.

Some people need to go do easy puzzles somewhere else when they can't do the puzzles that others can.

I am concerned that Jolie may have misinterpreted my intent.

I favor all levels of calcudoku so that all levels of players can access them.

My opposition was to the very time consuming puzzles that only tangentially relate to the original calcudoku concept -- i.e. the killer sudokus.

My phraseology was just a response to opacitaviola's and was intended to add opposition to making the killers more difficult and thus more time consuming.

I would note incidentally that opacitaviola appears to be 27th, 26th and 63rd in the world in the 7 day, 30 day and all-time rankings respectively so may have been unintentionally self referential. (Subsequent comment re facetiousness is duly noted.)

I certainly intended no dismissiveness or offense.

Can it be that sjs34 is a master at curvilinear symmetry or are appearances deceiving after all appearing to be in the top 100 and actually being there might well form some sort of kōan.

(To paraphrase others: Subsequent comment re facetiousness is surely to arrive......)

Opacitaviola,
Ooops. You originally had said factious, not facetious.
I obviously preferred facetious.
Either way, I appreciate your excellent response.
Perhaps there is a factious facetious koan to be had as well.

I must thank you for conjuring my facetiousness out of a somewhat low-blow factious. I would of hated the crowd to believe anything less of me. And best to stop here before many come to believe I am overstepping my bounds.

In the spirit of zen perhaps it needs a factious facetious koan to whip up interest.
