I have just received a complaint about it too, though.

I'm afraid its a 'feature' of the way it is constructed: because this topic does not have threads, each post is behaving like each of the (for example) quotations in the quotes topic.

That seems plausible, though I think 'footloose' to mean 'with the last letter removed' is very dubious.

Is it 'bring' with the 'g' taken off on the outside of 'to'?

From a recent Saturday Times Crossword:
About to fetch footloose islander (6)

The answer was 'Briton'; can anyone explain why?
