FYI, we don’t reveal the answer outright but hint at it. It is okay to give possible wrong answers.
We also need to be mindful that the first 11 words of our comments will show up on the homepage sidebar. So prefacing any hint with a short observation is the best way to go.
All comments and predictions on the CotD posts are deleted after about a week, so be fearless!
