Liam, I know you think of me as a moaning killjoy, but my
 
 
patience has run out. Unlike the week-long usual ban, I am
 
 
hereby barring you for good. You anger many of my patrons,
 
 
who regularly air a quantity of complaints about you and are
 
 
frankly tired of your type ruining the atmosphere here.
 
 
 
 
 
We value decorum in this country club, but when I germanely
 
 
remark upon your behavior you insult and stink eye me. No, I'm
 
 
not a "total hypocrite", and since when am I biased against you?
 
 
OK, maybe sometimes I err, ale one minute, spirits the next, but
 
 
I don't turn up smelling like kerosene, galumphing around the
 
 
place, apparently unsatisfied until I exhaust Rialto of all its liquor!
 
 
 
 
 
I hoped you'd satisfy yourself in landing your recent job but
 
 
your egomania only deepened, acting like you're the star of your
 
 
own sitcom or ostentatiously parading about in juvenile costumes. I
 
 
don't need you waving your Harry Potter wand at another member
 
 
with a witty barb. A dose of your own medicine is what you need...
 
 
 
 
 
And Friday was the last straw Liam. A law is broken when you
 
 
bring a minor, way too young for the club. Whatever you find a
 
 
sense of freedom in, I can tell you it won't be here. If you find
 
 
this unfair you should check your IQ at a respectable institution.
 
 
 
 
 
And forget emailing straight back, I'm turning off the wifi. Jim

it was the toughest imo. I did it in 5 minutes total. But about 1.5 minute of it was trying to get oman. It was the only one I skipped to come back to. (so with the initial reading and trying it would be more like 2 minutes total)

Incredible series of quizzes. With these sort of puzzles, looking for the strangest word in the sentence and then going off of there is usually a surefire way to solve it, but I was quite impressed by how many of these throughout the series used some rather ordinary words to really conceal the solution. Absolutely brilliant puzzle design.

This may be my favorite in the series. The least gotten answer (to this point anyway) is cleverly hidden. Fiendishly even. In plain sight, purloined letter-wise. Nicely done. (I'd love to understand what's happening to my cognitive powers when I'm doing these. I always start out like gangbusters and then grind down, down, down.)

Genius, overtired.

I'm very proud that I managed to get them all, but I have to say, the genius is not only in the way you integrate some long and some short names in the script, but also in the purposefully laid traps.

unfortunately, you can easily cheat this by copying ans pasting entire line, then deleting letter by letter from the beginning of the line. I'm not sure whether there is any solution to this problem because jetpunk by default accepts any string which prefix contains the answer. Maybe demanding the user to end input with certain character?

The solution to the problem is not writing it in a comment underneath the quiz. Feel free to delete it.
