PLEASE DO IT!!!

In the mean time heres my work: Yellow = we know its right (t,h) blue = parts of words we think are right (quickly protect or is it protect.....quickly!???) red = me working backwards from the end (ough!)and getting stuck light blue = parts of words that may be important but I can't seem to connect them (will, die)

the D in DIE is not the one diagonal to the right/up from the king, but the one in the corner... the one which looks like a box

Bah, why not I'm going to take a leap here and protect croman74 because if you flip IM backwards it makes MI which is michigan which is where croman is from and that guy could reference the croman part of his username

EDIT: That I doesn't look anything like an F otherwise it could say FM....also IM could be referring to chat so it might be a good idea to protect some chat regulars if you have no other ideas

Also could refer to winneratlife if you use that reasoning.

you can jump right from better to protect and it works. so the remaining letters are I, M, and Z.
also, this is a bit of a stretch but maybe Gguy? unless he's not on here anymore :?

:idea: maybe the assassinator missed an H? had the Z instead of the H on purpose? "...so you had better protect HIM quickly"

never mind, this post will just confuse people

perhaps the left over z hints at zyzzyva or perhaps it's just a distractor to make us follow false leads
