Solve Sudoku for free money!

This is an extreme example of the emails I receive on the Sudoku website…

I want to be able to have to solve puzzles for money and prizes, because the Prize Edition that I have now, but I’m not sure that I’m going to win the $1,000 for doing the three puzzles and writing a little paragraph on when I first realized that I addicted to sudoku, because I really need that money because our family is in a really tight situation and we are really low on money.

Previously he sent:

last year we had a house fire–lost everything. At the same time my husband, who’s 56 was Forced into retirement. We have two sons–13 and 14. We’re only getting 990 from the retirement. Five dollers would make or break milk and bread at the end of the month. Could we work something out so as I can gain full entry to your site—Im way past easy puzzles and am looking for a challenge. thank you.

and…

Short story(i can explain the long one if you’d like) is i can not at this time afford this site. We have 990 a month income, 550 of it goes towards rent. The rest, what there of it, pays the bills. You have an excellent site. Would you consider allowing me a free access pass? we could trade services maybe. i don’t know what that my be. ruth rantwineatgmail

This was thoughtfully sent by: Jay Gartman and his wife (appropriately named: rantwine) in the US. What up-side-down country are they from (the US)?!

    Hi Ruth,
    I cannot help but feel: perhaps you should spend less time playing Sudoku and more time making money?

  2. I received a reponse from this lady this afternoon….
    “oh, ok, i see. details-1. i’m 56–
    2. i’ve had two heart attacks, 3 heart surgerys
    3. i’ve been the victim of domestic abuse, back in the 70’s and early 80’s when there was NO HELP. i have considerable phyiscal disability’s because of this
    4. new york state TOLD me i was unemployable
    5.pathic? I’m just asking nicely for something I’d really like. excuse me for asking then.
    6. so i have a hobby i enjoy–big deal. my husband works, i raise two sons-13 and 14, take care of a house, take as much personal care of my self i can, do the errands, make meals, do the necessary shopping myself. im also charged with keeping my husband’s,sons, and my schedules in sync.
    HOW IS THIS PATHIC? HOW IS ASKING SO WRONG?WHY DONT YOU STOP AND GET A FEW FACTS BEFORE YOU RUSH TO SUCH CRUEL JUDGEMENTS OF OTHERS?
    i’m doing the best i can with what i have. one of my few LUXURIES is getting some time to MYSELF and enjoying a good puzzle.
    good day.

    and then a few minutes later…
    “i sent you my answer. if you do not apologize by noon, my time, i will post not only what i asked of you, i’ll also post your reply to EVERY SINGLE FORUM on the net. end of it. there was no cause for you to be so mean and someone like you SHOULD’NT be in charge of anything.period.

    I wonder why she would expect free website access from complete strangers because she is old and too fat… Let’s hope we get a lot of free publicity from her forum posting rampage!
