No clue sorry

TABOO if 3 than O is last as -A-O- proven T is out from TITLE=O and B is out from SABOT =2 as again A/O proven

Your logic is fallacious, sorry. You correctly proved T is out, but you have a self-feeding loop with the SABOT thing. You need more words to fully demonstrate. For instance, basing just off those words:

TITLE = 0

SABOT = 2

TABOO = 3

Then in TABOO, it must be 3 of the last 4 letters. However, with just this info, it could be the A, B and the last O.

Another example of the fallacy: with just this info it could be the BOO from TABOO and the BO from SABOT.

If any letter proving is to be done, you need to bring in some extra words into the equation

[edit - typo]

SABOT=2

-A-O- proven, leaving S-B-T =o therefore the b=0

if as already accepted T is out then in TABOO only -A-OO can score if 3 last O is proven I think i mentioned this

in the original quote but maybe i wasnt clear enough.

YAHOO - ?

(Quag's proof is sound. AFAIK only three words fit ?A?OO, so if score is 3 then 'wahoo' is also ruled out)

WAHOO just in case YAHOO is 4

Edit: whoops the formatting got messed up. Anyway yea I had forogtten to check the ?????, i assumed all of them were question marks haha when it was ?A?O?, anyway yea so it's ?A?OO, 10 points each to WB & Quag. And YAHOO and WAHOO both score 3

You have to refresh after post now. I thought it was just me.

I accidentally down-repped you on one post. I up-repped the next one. =P

Yeah, that's been happening to me, too. Although, it only happens sometimes, which makes me think it might just be a glitch...
