Re(5): BTW

Interestingly, a lot of the higher-placed clues are self-referential or rely on ellipsis. There are comments on just about all of them in the same vein (suggesting that they are unsound); I suspect one inexperienced clue-writer has got the wrong end of the stick.

Personally I'd not have voted for the X clue, interesting though it is, since I prefer some of the simpler treatments in preference and points allocation is limited.

The "lottery" aspect of the competition, with unsound clues such as the winner in this case abounding, is a major demotivation. With my limited time nowadays, I'm concentrating on Azed unless I have immediate inspiration for a word here.
