PHANTASY – common??? Srsly‽‽‽ Not happy, Jan… (Reference to an Australian ad campaign…)
The greenest watt ever produced is the one you never use. Playing as jk1956 and John is my name.
When we come out of the Covid-19 crisis, we need to make sure recovery efforts address the Climate Crisis (which can't be solved using social distancing!)

It might be phascinating to look into the history of this spelling of fantasy, but I'll resist the temptation. It's obviously not a common word, so it will be rare in future and won't be available as a seed word for a 7-by-many puzzle.

Thanks Alan - FWIW I got it but was totally surprised when it was not only accepted, but notionally common...  :-P :-P :-P
