Fuck Yahoo Crosswords

this is the letter I wrote to yahoo after 37 across today was "conduct a trial" 3 letters and the answer was try.

Ummmmm. Conduct a Trial > Try??? Are you kidding? I cannot believe this is in a crossword. When I first saw the clue, I thought to myself "try" but then realized that the word was in the clue. You can't do this. Both words (though not directly related in english) derive from the old french trier, and basically a trial is an extension of to try. I'm sorry, but this is not a mom and pop operation, you should be ashamed of yourselves, I only do your crossword, because it is generally easier, less engaging and somewhat more relaxing on my mind than any other available. It is the American Idol of shitty crosswords, and you have just crossed a crossword line and I hope you pay dearly for it. I hope you all burn in crossword hell, and never get to practice your crossword terrorism on the good people of the word again. Thank you for your time.

That was a pretty fast switch away from sports.

I find the Monday and Tuesday puzzle on the LATimes.com website to be sufficently easier, less engaging and somewhat more relaxing on my mind than any other available. Try that one for your sanity's sake. And you can go back and do past puzzles from earlier weeks on the other days.
