    nice puzzle this was fun! i remember doing the cryptograms in the newspaper back in the day... can you explain the title thought - i don't get what ROT means?
    • sw3aterCS 🤓20s · 2023-07-30T05:57:13.000Z
      The cipher used on 4D is ROT-13.
      • SJMcK constructor · 2023-07-30T23:36:25.189Z
        ROT-13 is a simple cipher wherein each letter is shifted 13 places in the alphabet—A=N, B=O, etc. Good job solving it as a cryptogram.

        That was fun! From the title I guessed we'd be seeing ROT-13. It was a good way of hiding potentially-objectionable comments. You knew how to read them, but you couldn't accidentally do so.

          Very nice! I completely missed the ROT part and just solved this as a cryptogram. I used to do those daily, but haven't in a while- took me a couple of minutes to shake off the rust. Recognizing it as ROT-* would have made it a little easier!
