What in the Yosemite Sam has happened here?

Mr Moog as the chief of po-lease/sheriff of Nottingham/judge Judy around these here parts can you please sort this out. There appears to be a 'grave error' somewhere...perhaps due to an unlawful edit...or perhaps not.
due to covid-19, we are experiencing delays... please stay on the line and an operator will assist you...

Ed: hi, my name is ed! how can i help you today?
Stucky: yeah, id like to report a grave error on the word game thread.
ed: let me see, may i put you on hold?
S: ok.
< "up where we belong" instrumental plays for 3 minutes >
ed: hello, sir?
S: yes, im here.
ed: sorry for that, yes, i see the problem. pescatarian added an entry with an illegal word on post 8317. i am deducting 10 points from her account and will be crediting your game score an extra 10 points for spotting that."
S: okay, thats better.
ed: is there anything else i can help you with today?
S: no, thats it.
ed: ok, thanks for contacting the 'pick a word' accounts department! have a nice day!"

beyond evil
*** This was actually MY error.

Note, I quoted Frank's post (silent Sam)-- my reply was EVIL Sam, because that character is Evil. I should have quoted @pescatarian09 #8315 Silent Grave. I thought I had corrected the post in time, however, due to seriously crappy internet connection, I did not see pescatarian's new post.

Please credit lost points to @pescatarian09 and debit my account, posthaste.*


*I HAVE ALREADY SUBMITTED THE REQ TO THE LOUNGE PO BOX IN OMAHA c/o @polymoog -- IN TRIPLICATE (§ 152-2)-- SO ED SHOULD HAVE NO PROBLEM EXPEDITING THE POINTS TRANSFER. -.-

Triplicates will only be accepted as originals. No carbon or photo copies.
