(You Should Not) Learn How to Cheat at Wordle

What kind of a monster, what kind of a louse, what kind of a wretch of a human being would use this Wordle cheat sheet?

Sure, streaks are nice. You don’t want to lose your streak. We saw the aftermath of the COYLY disaster – streaks destroyed, marriages ruined, countries fallen, lives no longer worth living.  

But you – a decent, upstanding citizen – would never do this. I mean sure, the New York Times makes public the list of 2,309 potential Wordle solutions. But they provide it in a format that is basically unusable.

And obviously *you* would not be the moral disaster who would take the following steps, but could someone, in theory, download that list, do some quick splits, and upload it to Gigasheet and give access to everyone? Dear Reader, it’s actually pretty easy.
