I have been a reader of the Sunday Times for 60 years and of the Brighton Argus for 5 years but the main reason was to enjoy the mental challenge of doing the cryptic crosswords.
However, I no longer do the puzzles in these papers because the answers are immediately available on "Wordplays.com" and after 12 noon on a site called "Big Dave's Crossword Blog" gives answers to the Daily Telegraph Cryptic.
I contacted The Argus but did not get any help other than to be told not to use Wordplays! There is liitle point in that advice in my opinion. The only option is not to do the crossword.
Fortunately there is a non-cryptic puzzle called "Quick Crossword" in the Argus which can sometimes prove a mind teaser.
The Daily Telegraph and Radio Times puzzles are unaffected and I can still enjoy them. When I need help with these, I ask for assistance from other cruciverbalists on Answerbank and am always grateful for the prompt and helpful advice given.
This is not a request for help but just an expression of an opinion. Thank you.

Thank you goodgoalie. My reason for stopping doing The Daily Telegraph and Argus crosswords is that I like SOME help but I do not want to be spoon fed with 100% answers.

Thank you, Babs M, for your comments.
Please see my answer to good goalie and others for my reasons to stop doing the Telegraph and Argus crosswords
Hi Arjay - I know you're frustrated with this but the fact is if you Google a full clue and the answer appears on a site such as those mentioned then yes, you will get other answers.

You are good enough to do as much of the clue as possible then perhaps enter the patter in 'One Look' which will give you choices.

I am pleased to find that today's Daily Telegraph Crossword 28716 is like it used to be.Typing in the clue and pressing return does not reveal the answer.
