What do you call a word that is created by plugging in letters and submitting until an unacceptable word is formed?  Surely, someone has come up with a term for this practice or for the resulting word.  Thanks.

When I can't come up with a word on my own, I start playing tiles in combinations that look like words, but I don't know that they are.  Often I discover a "new" word.  Like today, I played sozin, which is a word I didn't know, but the combination of consonants and vowels seemed reasonable and when submitted it was accepted.  I'm thinking someone has coined a term for this method of playing and I'd like to know the term.
It's called noobtubing.
