Or is it Will Weng?

The Friday 11/2 NYT puzzle was not loading correctly. Just a glitch where the server was slow to update with today's puzzle. It's already fixed. Life goes on.

An apoplectic poster said, "This ain't rocket science, and such incompetence at such a simple chore as uploading a puzzle correctly is ridiculous.

The Times obviously has editors and proofreaders for its news content. Is it too much to expect the crossword editor to consistently exercise the same minimal quality control over delivery of the puzzle to paying subscribers?

The buck stops with Puzzle Editor Will Johnston and if he can't accomplish that, he should be fired."

People bursting with righteous indignation should take special care to get their facts right.
