My mind: bamboozled.

Truly interesting game here nevertheless. Like!

Waiting, yet noone replying? Oh well...
Know how they say, finders keepers.

Hmm, looks quite good so far, except rogue's #7.
Ignore a1call's musings (#8)?

Rainy day today, from dawn till dusk. Pity. Still got much garden work left. Require some activities other than wasting hours doing nothing.

There! Tops even opening post. Wow. Didn't think eye could manage. (Hear them shout: cheater!)

Stay safe!

Default Numerous independent entries

Some thoughts:
Listing alphabetically aids search.
Quoted sections restricted too? Case-insensitive? Hyphenates? Compounds? Plurals? Abbreviations? Clarify regulations please. Universally yes promotes longer sessions.
Single (American?) dialect, grammatically correct complete sentences required?
Components made unique using suffixes or prefixes qualify.
Instigating such challenges among spelling champions' voluminous vocabularies may bruise various egos, unfortunately.
Fortunately, polysyllabic submissions extend play duration.
Proliferate adjectives, adverbs, plus possessives, padding count.
Surely certain programmers could hack linux shell script, etcetera; automate checking uniqueness.
Algorithm: strip trailing punctuation, merge, make lowercase, split on spaces, sort
Afterward, brief candidates resemble usually Yoda's.
Employing https://alphabetizer.flap.tv/ iteratively during ample leisure yielded following. (end)

Default Alternate puzzle

Identify longest legal meaningful expression contained consecutively inside whatever's current anti-glossary, unpunctuated. Example:
Quote:
Come consider contractions could count currently.
(Valid before #19 was posted. But not the longest then.)
