This is not a rulebreaker, but a neologism. Peter, could you fix the title? Thanks!

guys = a term for human beings in general? or lateralites in particular?
male human beings? female? adults?
Is this an active activity, or more a passive one?

Would one prespiad on the forum? Does it have to do with puzzles? Logic? Does it happen on the internet in general? In--gasp--real life?

Would you imagine most people do not prespiad? Is there a characteristic of Lateralians that makes us more likely to do it? Are we the only ones who would have cause to do it? Does it involve finding out something?

Would you imagine most people do not prespiad? I'm not sure Is there a characteristic of Lateralians that makes us more likely to do it? If "being on the LTPF" is a characteristic, yes Are we the only ones who would have cause to do it? yes Does it involve finding out something? no

Does "pre" in "prespiad" mean "before"? Is it possible to "postspiad"?

Is "prespiading" typically done by the puzzle creator? the puzzle solver? the forum moderator?

Does "prespiading" mean trying out the puzzle with friends before you post it on the forum?

Does "prespiading" mean writing the puzzle down on paper or computer (perhaps Microsoft Word) before posting it on the forum?

Is the purpose of prespiading to help articulate your puzzle statement? Is it a brainstorming exercise of sorts? Does it test out the puzzle in any way? Does it seek to establish if the puzzle is about something well-known?

Does it apply to all puzzles, or more specifically to neologisms? Rulebreakers? Scrunds? Latventures?

Does it involve writing down the puzzle statement anywhere? Does it involve writing down the spolier, in case it is forgotten later? Does it involve writing down something else?

********SPOILER********
prespiad is an acronym of prepare spoiler in advance. It means to write down the spoiler to an LTPF puzzle before posting the puzzle, either in case you might forget it or because you just want to have it at hand quickly when the puzzle is solved. I never prespiad - what about you?


Thanks for playing, Paul, WiZ, et al.
