Update: success! Thank you, Langue_doc! It turned out that I just needed two longish words, and one of your hints got me to the longer of the two.  The other one had a similarity to that one, and I worked out from another of your hints and knowing the first letter after husband and I compared # of words with same first letter.  So you helped us both to get to QB, though impurely.  Still, yay! Thanks again!

Woohoo! Congrats. I'm on the Kindle, so have to be frugal with words because of autocorrect.

Stepping back from all the arguing that's been going on above, it is concerning to see that large stretches of the American public believe that unarmed Black men are being slaughtered by the hundreds, even thousands, by police officers when this simply isn't true.  It indicates that inflammatory rhetoric on the subject has created a great deal of serious misinformation.  This is never good when dealing with such an emotive issue.

Uhm...yeah.

A man who got shot out of a cannon gave the circus manager his notice, he'd be leaving in two weeks. The manager responded 'good luck to you. I don't know where we'll find another man of your caliber.'

You're upset because you would have me banned, but you're outvoted.
edited to add: I can't write about why I liked Writingprof without offending you. He never misrepresented the soul of higher education by claiming it wants the best for everyone. I considered that refreshing, if nothing more.

I really appreciate your posts in this thread.

They've been a good reminder of how much some people here value the time and effort I put into maintaining this community (apparently none).

Thank you for funding and running the forum, but I suspect it's not working out for you with me here.

Outvoted by whom? eigen has never put the possibility of banning you to a vote, nor has he pushed to ban you.

Congrats on the QB, Langue_doc! And thanks for the tips.  I will keep at it! I only have one compound word so far.  Hopefully your clues will help! And good luck if you stay with LB.  Wondering if anyone has any luck there...
