“Isn’t this page just an elaborate way of cheating on Spelling Bee? Where’s the sportsmanship in that?”
It certainly can be used to cheat, but it can also be used to provide hints if you get stuck. If you set thecheckbox before you click , you’ll only see statistics about the accepted solutions, not the solutions themselves.
Still, we find “cheating” to be a pretty strong word. We like to keep in mind a gentle piece of advice proffered in 1977 by departing New York Times puzzle editor Will Weng: “Don’t be conscience-stricken if you use dictionaries, atlases and such in doing a puzzle. It’s your puzzle and you can do it any way you please.”
