Re(1): L4422 - from the setter

"some ingenious solvers picked up on completely unintended grid material"

Isn't that entirely the point behind the numerous complaints? Either you or your editors failed to see that there were perfectly sensible alternatives. You seem to want solvers to be "stronger" but then think outside the box - why? (such a stupid phrase in any case). Why couldn't we be rewarded for thinking inside the box - and as you say, there were "ingenious" solutions which did so. Unrepentant you may be, but this was a defective puzzle.
