Yes... but why do we need to know all this...?

austin, I know you're new and I understand that; I am too. But almost every post that you've made has been flamed because it was either irrelevant or pointless/stupid. It would probably help out your situation a lot if you spent a little time searching the forums and googling before you post anything. Just a tip from another new guy.

First of all, you don't tell mods what to do. Secondly, these people are tying to help you and stop you from looking like more of a noob in the future kind of like you are now, so drop the attitude.

He's mad at us because WE made it off topic? I'd say it's a serving the community better with it's current topic.

"good job at finding the ansver"

He used a -3 Caesar Cipher, and typed it wrong.

Total time for me to "break" it: 30 seconds. Approx 10 seconds of frequency analysis, then another 10 to find an N-bit Caeser decipher page on Google, then 10 more to get to a -3 shift starting from -1.

Pro Tip: Listen to these people. It's good that you are learning, but you aren't going to get a gold star every step of the way. If you need help, feel free to ask questions, but posting for the sake of posting gets old fast.
Assume that everything I say is or could be a lie.
