On the subject of word hub:
since when is there no plural for "mill"?
and why is "freon" , which is in dictionary, not accepted?

"lase" and "laser", "tase" but not "taser"???

The same word might be accepted in one game, but not another.

"eruv" is OK but not "seder"?

I gave up mentioning errors because they weren't being corrected any more, but I've just been playing Word Hub & Words Within Words & I've noticed a lot of changes!

Reos and Negs are now allowed.

Why was twats removed? Oaf, berk, git and other insults are still allowed, aren't they?

By the way admins: have you seen my thread I started a few days ago about the problem with incorrect time attached to played matches?

For one thing, twats was allowed but not its singular twat. I'm not sure if you could equate twat to oaf, berk or git. It's arguable, but I believe people are called twats BECAUSE of its vulgar meaning. That seems to be the case in Australian English. Australian & British English are not always the same. We pronounce "twat" differently: British twat rhymes with cat; Australian twat rhymes with not. To my knowledge, twat is not used at all in American English.

The two pics on the twat definition page are hilarious!

They've taken the piss too it seems. Piss used to be a game word, I've just played the 7 letter word RAPISTS & it won't accept PISS! I know which word I find more offensive! Anxious

I agree. It's not as if "piss" is swearing/blasphemy and was thereby automatically removed. Why choose to remove "piss", but keep "rapist", "rape" and "rapes" in the game?

It doesn't make sense... speaking of which, the word "sense" isn't playable in the rounds where the 7-letter word is "seances".

Necessity is more than 7 letters. Do you mean in Words Within Words? If so, you can report the error in the following thread, which is for WWW:
