Come on, tell me what you think. I am of the opinion that the Comment box is way under used. If you like it great, If you hate it, tell me. So I can fix the problem in future puzzles. Personally I think more feedback both good and bad can only help the website produce more fun for all. Even a little trash talkin' can be fun.

Yeah, it was a bit easy, you can just change the letters directly to the answer. ie First letter goes to same as answer, next letter goes to next change and so on ... not much of a challenge, not even for and illiterate like me!

It's good to know you got my back dawg!! And as far as the rest of the comments.... There well deserved, this was one of my first puzzles, I didn't have my footing yet, I'll admit it was easy. That's why you can look at the list of my puzzles and it will be the only one like this you'll find. Let's see the easy complaints about some of my other puzzles.
