I didn't cheat; I tried to figure out what was missing, then gave up. I emailed you after I threw in the towel.

Your fine and reputable firm needs to act swiftly to repair this grievous attack on the English language, one which I have now seen plastered on the sides of buses, on billboards, and in numerous other public locations. Have you considered the effect of your nonsensical “Treat yourself well. Everyday” campaign on the nation’s schoolchildren?

In closing, although I appreciate the creativity of your comments that “Words without suffixes are typically not in the dictionary,” I believe that if you research this further you will find that many words with suffixes are in fact in the dictionary, and that words that are not words are not.
actually i could have quoted the entire exchange ; the whole thing was one giant "best part". but that would have been silly.

Note: there's something else missing in that screenshoot, too. Karma for the first correct answer. Rules: I and only I decide what the right answer is, so don't tell me "squirrels" or "lolos" and expect to win.
you know of course that if you hadn't explicitly ruled those out you would have been flooded with squirrel lolo replies...

I am seldomly ironic.

I post this one just to note the adverb "seldom", which doesn't end in an -ly. A twist, if you will, on the "missing -ly" craze.

Nah, it's "squirrel lolos" -- see it was a trick question "squirrels or lolos."

NatCh is the Tennesexan Gizmologist... Nate the Great is the doggy-avatar. Scroll-up, Scroll-down. Repeat 17 times. GOT IT.

Yes. And when you click it into their shopping cart, you will find a Help link, which allows you to fill out a Contact Us email form, which I used to point out the missing item(s) on their site.

"I filled out your shopping cart with several books I've decided to purchase, but couldn't find a spot to choose an e-book format, so couldn't complete my order. Where can I purchase electronic editions of your books?"

Which would be a good phrase if one were trying to keep another from getting personal in a discussion.

Otherwise, never mind.
