1. Read the MetaRexian scenario below and fill in your choice of a, b, c, d, or e:
Had a nearly empty SE twenty minutes in to Barry Silk's puzz...TEDDY for ZEPPO and lack of FLO were big delayers...did not feel right to me to google the 9-letter toxi-whatchamicallit ...felt ok enough to google the 4-letter Steinbeck brothel owner to get me going...
a) You may or may not be an unethical person, but this is an unethical act;
b) It would be ok if you did it in privacy, but it's not ok given that your time is posted against other online solvers who don't use artificial supplements;
c) What you did is okay given that you're disclosing it, but it wouldn't be if you didn't disclose it;
d) It's ok to do what you did, or for that matter to google to get POISON OAK--this isn't a real ethics issue at all;
e) It depends, or other (please explain)...
Comments are open :)
