Re: Your poor Scrabble example
"In your scrabble image the OG and KY are not valid words, at least according to the TWL scrabble dictionary."
If not challenged, they can stay. This, at least, avoids some of the pitfalls of atrocious dictionaries (like yahoo's literati, for example) and keeps the game at the level of the players ;-)
But then, standard are slipping these days. Some people accept anything on the SOWPODS which is terribly liberal in what it accepts, colloquialisms and foreign words be damned. I remember seeing a little scrabulous note one day that mentioned that their highest scoring opening word was 'muzjik' or some such idiocy.
Argh. It's almost enough to make one FOTW.
