If you put an infinite number of apes in front of an infinite number of computers, you get a pretty good idea of what internet chat rooms can be like

....or is it a rebus within a cipher?

No, it's a typo - your correction is the right one. Thanks!

So, Stan... what's the answer?

Simple alphabet shift

A=Q, B=R, C=S etc

Answer: "How awful is this code?"

Yes, a simple alphabet shift, also known as a rotation
cipher (rot cipher for short.)

A ROT-1 cipher replaces each letter of plaintext with
the letter immediately following it in the alphabet.
(Think of the alphabet as being circular. I.e. let the
alphabet wrap around and rejoin itself so that A
follows Z.)

A ROT-2 cipher replaces each letter of plaintext
with the letter two positions forward in the alphabet.
(A becomes C, B becomes D,...,Y becomes A, Z becomes
B.)

The always clever Stephen Buxton wouldn't post a
cipher that was SIMPLY a ROT cipher, would he?
No, no, no....Stephen's enciphered message asks,
"How awful is this code?"

The particular rot cipher he used to encode it
provides the punning answer to his query:
"It's rotten!" (ROT-10)

Stephen, your contributions to this forum
are always original, clever, and interesting.
Thanks yet again!

I like the suttle clue.......or should I say Y BYAU BXU IKRJBU SBKU?

man I hope I got that right. Is there a website that has all these different ways to decipher codes? I.E. the rots, or reverse alphabet. Please PM me if there is.

Glad you all enjoyed it! I came up with that idea whilst compiling a set of puzzles for a mystery party that will be running soon on http://www.mysterynet.com. If anyone is interested, PM me, and I'll let you know when signing-up starts (it's free)

As far as explanations for codes and cyphers, check out http://www.puzzletome.com. You need to register there (free). Some nice puzzles, and a nice break down on how to solve puzzles.

Thanks. I found a site that provided my the cypher used in my puzzle "Another Puzzle!?"
