No big deal, it's just a game.
Yes I'm aware - was just trying to see the humorous side.
Rest assured that I'm sorry that this happened, and that I'm a stickler for fairness in the Cafe's games. My problem is though that I don't see a fair solution here. I mean I can take 90 minutes off your total times, but that'll still leave you with little chance against those folks with the 30 seconds replies. I can't really lock those questions either, because it would be unfair to those who asked the question (remember that they also get a point for asking the question). In the end I'm chalking it off as force majeure (like the server going down before you hit reply), but if anyone has a better (=fairer) idea I'm all open ears.
(And I know you said it's no big deal, just showing off that I put some thought into this.
