    As BEAM=2 then BE--, B-A-, -EA-, -E-M or --AM.
    As BELL=1 then not BE--, and as BRAT=1 then not B-A-,
    thus -EA-, -E-M or --AM.
    As DEAR=2, then -EA-, DE-M, or D-AM.
    As COLD=1, then CEA-, -EAD, DELM or DOAM.
    No such words of DELM and DOAM, thus -EA- is proven.
    There is no word beginning CEA-, thus -EAD is proven.

    The answer is not six.

    A word that begins a sentence should be capitalized. As "finished" is not, perhaps there is a word or are words that precede it. Thus one would have a problem in counting the number of actual fs in the sentence as the missing part of the sentence may contain one or more fs. The answer to the question would be 'No'.
    .
    If the sentence begins with "finished", such that "finished files" is a proper noun expressed in the manner like that of "e. e. cummings", or if the sentence is written erroneously with an uncapitalized first word, then the answer would be 'Yes'.
    The question asks whether one can count how many fs are there and not what the count is.

    I am unable to host a Mastermind game at the current time. I invite WombatBreath to choose another volunteer or choose another word with an interesting structure.

    OVER

    (note: incorrect title for 2nd spoiler. Should have been 'A few notes regarding incorrect postings and errors'. But that might not be the needed title, as well.)

    My error in previous awarding of points was due to the rules posted that I was referred to, which is not how the scores have been handled here. The rules indicated that +5 points were awarded to each logicked letter (which is the same here), but +10 for guessing the word, nothing about awarding points for letters not logicked.

    As the ROLO rules I was referred to contradicted, in part, the awarding of points, I went through all the posts for this section of ROLO (4 length) and compiled the words and scores, and discovered that I, with a few others had awarded scores incorrectly. Here is a summary and correction of those scores:
