robxxx, a MISSIVE is a synonym for "note or LETTER" (the kind you write and send in the mail). a LETTER (ie, MISSIVE) was added to the end of DIS. get it now?

It was a trick, but only with useless trivia. Boring.

I thought i was supposed to add "a letter" to DIS. But that's not an actual word. Yet again you didn't say it had to be and actual word....

wow, this one was absolutely perfect
even though I knew it was a trick I didn't get it...
it certainly was a trick too.
i was thinking along of the lines of only haveing 4 letters, but being tricky to get 10, like having 10 in Roman Numerals or something.
Great teaser!

Hahaha. That's fantastic. I didn't know what a missive was so no chance that I would have gotten it. But good one!

I kept thinking of how to add a letter so the four letter word would mean someting related to ten.. like deca, deci, etc.
