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.

About to fetch footloose islander (6)

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