Some Thoughts S7Y R8O O8N R8O E5M | Comment 16 of 31 |
The number in parenthesis seem to be between 1-26, which could mean letters. In that case, the title would be E7T N2Q, and the question would be S8I R6Y E7A E6M N6T E7O R6Y D7O?

A FIRST LEAP OF FAITH: If (a big IF) the title meant THE QUESTION, then it would seem that words were written backwards, and somehow E7T meant THE and N2Q meant QUESTION. In that case, the question would be I8S Y6R A7E M6E T6N O7E Y6R O7D?, and we should try to guess the missing letters in each word.

A SECOND LEAP OF FAITH: The middle number might have something to do with the missing letters -- 7 could stand for 1 missing letter (H) and 2 could stand for 6 missing letters (UESTIO) so the missing letters are (8-Number) and the question could be something like

IS Y--R A-E M--E T--N O-E Y--R O-D?

I don't want to start trying out word combinations, so if someone wants to pick this up, fine by me!

(A first thought: if my suppositions were correct, there could be many answers, all equally valid, which wuold make me rate this problem very low...)

(A second thought: I don't see the meaning of the given hint, which I assume to mean "10".)

(A last thought: if only an answer is sought, I would surely say "S7Y R8O O8N R8O E5M" ---YES OR NO OR MAYBE--- and thus the tilte of this message.)
