Have TFD colluded to rob me of points? Both the article of the day & this day in history pages logged me out. I tried repeatedly, no luck.
Collusion? or gremlins?

Maybe both. My guess is neither: mine is working fine, and I am pretty sure you do not need a monkey wrench to correct yours.

Good luck to you!

'Collude' in a poem:

"Isn’t it funny,
when you’ re looking at this world , with a child’s eyes.
Like children, with all of their ruthless innocence.
Beyond a bend, all things are painfully uncomplicated,
all shades; pitch black or white as moon,
all words; like scriptures etched on stone,
all reasons ; cast to the winds like ashes,
and all promises; believed like prophesies foretold eternites ago.
So its only inevitable,
this churning sense of disillusionment,
when you’re finally caught in a blurred haze..,
between that asphalt road and the milky white moon,
a haze of hundred saturnine wisps of grey where,
all shades; collude with each other..
all words; are malleable under the tyranny of an iron hammer
all reasons; are straightjackets for reckless spirits
and promises…are only meant to be broken."

The act of collusion on the part of X-President Bush and Vice President Cheney, are beyond reprehensible; they border on crimes against humanity. Where are the true and honest citizen's, of the world that are not demanding impressment for their crimes. Is the death of over 1 million people not sufficient grounds in order for the world to see how vile these 2 individuals were and still are?

It was communism all over: a superpower buying influence and colluding with corrupt elites to rob their own nations blind.
