this puzzle should be taken

this puzzle should be taken down - it can accept best score as that with no filters - tho it did not (here at least ) B4 the latest update.

Puzzle points set to zero

Thanks for the quick feedback, everyone, and apologies for the slow response on our end! There was some confusion about two distinct scoring bugs, but I think we've pinned down the problem that was included in the last update, which caused "unfiltered" scores to be reported to the server.

We're working to fix the problem in the update, but unfortunately, we can't adjust the aberrant rankings. We've set this puzzle to be worth zero points, so these puzzle rankings will not affect anyone's global or category scores.
