Who'd commit to play WWF with rules like golf? You don't use outside sources, and if your word is not valid, you pass.

WWF is currently set up to use a human like a computer algorithm: you list all your possible plays in order of decreasing desirability, and just try them out.  It is corrupt.  It would be more honorable, and reward real word knowledge, to require an an "all in" approach.  Of course, the list of "acceptable" words is a mess.  I don't know why I continue to play.

You need to raise this with the makers of WWF, Zynga.

So you are indifferent to the issue?  Never mind who can ultimately do something about it.  Score inflation due to this issue is rampant.  You are probably guilty.

Not me. Simply because too many known valid words are disallowed by its pathetic dictionary! It's bad enough that I'm unable to play the word FAG in case somebody is offended, why on earth would I also be penalised for their shortcomings?

Don't you feel sort of dirty playing it the way it is?  BTW, I am sympathetic: there is a very coarse word that refers to the female genitalia that is widely used in modern Brit slang and literature, but is not allowed in WWF, but the word "quod," which seems to mean only "jail" in Brit slang, but which I have never seen used--and I am very familiar with modern Brit lit--is allowed.

To quote Artie Lange: "Waaaaaaaaaaa"

EA's Scrabble® for iOS actually has a cheat dictionary built-in so quit complaining.

If you want to play competition Scrabble® enter a Scrabble tournament where you can play by the above rules.
