Another (inferior) crossword site has today posted this notice:

“Recently there has been a noticeable increase in off-topic comments on puzzle related posts, many of which would better be posted elsewhere, for example on the General Discussion page, or not at all. Please be circumspect when posting a comment. I do not want to limit input to the site but equally I do not want it to be cluttered up with off-topic asides.”

I would like to point out that off-topic comments are, as ever, welcome on ths friendly site!

      3. Since 1997-ish sung at every Boston Red Sox home game, in the ‘middle’ of the eighth inning – this one with Mr Diamond himself – by around 38,000 fans.

  2. Is it me or are we getting less ‘gimmes’ in the dt code words of late? Also I noticed that there was a pun at 1a, 4a & 9a in yesterday’s quickie. I thought we didn’t do puns on Sundays.
