    $\begingroup$ I don't really understand the "not a state" answer. I thought of it as a possibility, but it doesn't seem any more compelling to me than alternatives such as "ILLIQUID" and "NO IDLING" $\endgroup$ Apr 30, 2023 at 0:11

    $\begingroup$ Actually this is MY bad - I should have specified that the answers were eight letter words - I was looking for ILLIQUID - but then again I ironically did not state the rules correctly! - so happy that this one is correct $\endgroup$ May 2, 2023 at 12:46
  • $\begingroup$ I don’t think I ever would have found the answer to “Betrayed a State.” Great work! $\endgroup$ May 26, 2023 at 22:13
