    Know you are damaging your brand every time you publish a puzzle by Anurag. Your choice whether or not this continues.

    I’ve seen a few comments like this now, what need is there to be so aggressive?

    I don’t know anything about Anurag or your relationship with him, but based on the link (which I have not solved) I take it you just aren’t generally a fan of his puzzles, and not something more serious.

    Well in that case, feel free to not solve his puzzles, but I for one am happy to keep solving them, at least when they’re published by a source like GMPuzzles that I know vets puzzles for both uniqueness and general quality.

    I keep the comment section generally open for discussion but would like to not have more added here about the author. The link from Giovanni (which others do not need to follow) has a hidden name of a horrible person that should not be highlighted in any puzzle. But focusing on that will have this discussion demonstrate Godwin’s Law instantaneously.

    I had not seen that puzzle before, and I do not screen all prior works of guest contributors. I don’t know who over half our contributors are. At this site we evaluate the submitted puzzles on their own, not the reputation of the author; if someone can write a puzzle that brings someone joy it is something we can consider publishing it here. We will reevaluate this policy when called for.
