Albert, firstly Welcome and trust me this is a friendly site. Chorley's response may have turned wrongly on the ones who answered a bit , I don't really see it that way.
Those who answer do not know the rules of the quiz nor the requests of the setter - Ernie has owned up to an oversight, fair enough but in general I am in favour of abiding by the rules of the quiz, apart from an occasional query re wrong letter counts for example.
I love to be first in with an answer and have occasionally fallen foul of a misleading question title before realising it is not a crossword, at least in this case the correct quiz title was given.
Don't give up on us. :-)
