Re(4): Listener No. 4422: Buried Treasure by Poat

So far everyone is being very polite. I greatly enjoyed every aspect of the puzzle until the final one, and I have no hesitation in crying FOUL. Anyone whose entry has the correct letters in the correct cells should be marked correct. As others have pointed out, certain sites explored exhaustively the many possible ways of interpreting a preamble - since most of these seemed logical it seems way beyond reasonableness to rule them out, especially as the idea of the highlighting being in the preamble is so egregious. There have been many puzzles in the past when the latitude afforded to the step beyond the solving of the clues has been wide. So it should be here.
