Re(2): Death of the Indy as a print paper
IP: 80.6.0.221


With all respect to Don, this isnít really about how well the Indy has paid its setters (though of course we all believe they should be better remunerated). Itís about the possible loss of a much valued crossword resource.

The Indy crossword has become for many solvers the go-to daily cryptic, with its policy of encouraging freshness and innovation, and giving opportunities to new setters as well as already-established ones.

Though I donít speak disinterestedly, I think I can safely claim that the Inquisitor series now ranks among the world-leading advanced barred cryptics. Like other advanced puzzles, it would not lend itself to online solving via an app, and must continue to be provided as a printable PDF.
