    You're a patient man Dan. It took you this long to finally say something about that? It was never funny the first time, and I along with many others got sick and tired of it after the second post, along with the ***** cats and the other usual copy cats.........

    The Moody Blues responses were never meant to be thought of as attempts to solve the puzzle; they were a running joke specifically aimed at Moodyblues57, and had nothing to do with any effort Dan put into his puzzles. Personally, I found Dan's response offensive, though not surprising, considering his normal hubris and condescension.

    As was the post I was responding to. Don't worry, I'm done here: I never participate in the puzzle solving.

    Pot calling the kettle black maybe. You could be doing the same thing instead of posting in this thread if you think it is a waste of time. Many of us enjoy solving Dan's little puzzle and getting a heads up on what the DLC is, it allows us to plan for purchase if need be.

    Personally, I'm on the 7 bandwagon so what about someone like Sevendust?

    Then why bother responding or even reading the thread. Talk about condescension and hubris. You make it seem like you are too good to participate in the puzzle solving. I will never understand why people comment in these threads if all they are going to do is be unhelpful.

    Out on a limb I think it's Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band.

    What kind of a cipher has been in the things? Caesar or just individual letter substitution (whatever that's called)?

    Anyway here's where we are in the puzzle:

    ESPBCVL QYBM

    should become something:

    ***R*** **R*

    These days, a clue thread isn't a clue thread without the ObMoodyBlues response.

    It's no worse than "Half Life 3 confirmed!"

    I agree.

    It's like people who do crossword puzzles, I don't get that, why not just look at a grid of interconnected words and black squares.

    Or people who do pub quizzes, why not just listen to someone read a random list of seemingly unconnected things, then get on with your evening.

    Also I think it's completely logical that everyone should only derive pleasure from one activity, whether it's learning to play the guitar, solving puzzles or frequent, vigorous onanism.

    Back to the puzzle. I don't get why certain clues and words are inverted.
