@yarb - ha!
@frogapplause, belatedly - yes, I hate that too, but since "Pacific" is technically a real word (albeit misused in your example), I shan't include it on this list. This list is for words/expressions that just don't exist. (Well, "kerfluffle" is arguable, but I don't like it, I think it should be "kerfuffle".)
This list is awesome!! I love extra lemurs - like there is some magic number of lemurs it is acceptable to have, but if there's one more, chuck it. (Picturing the cow being hurled on the catapult in The Holy Grail.)
Well I'm one of the few who would notice - I was the one who begged you to add it, because it cracked me up so much. Maybe it's just me who automatically wants to end any sentence beginning "take this x and.." with "shove it" - it's no reflection of my feelings towards x itself. Totally silly, of course you want to put real functional items in the drop-down. Maybe we could link "shove it" to a page saying "Why would you want to shove this word? Don't you like it? Be nicer to words! Unless it's irregardless. You are allowed to shove that evil non-word."
I found a bug! My newly added "word", What's That Blue Thing Doing There?, comments link yields a "Disallowed key characters in global data" message. But only on the direct link - if you go to the regular word page and then click "Comments" it removes the question mark and works fine.
I don't think so. It should be cuntfa but that really is sort of still breaking the rules of the game. The point is it's almost innocent-sounding without the last two letters, and cuntfa, while weird, is not exactly innocent-sounding.
"I can’t eat a sandwich if it is cut any way besides diagonally. When I go to Arby’s (or any other place that typically cuts sandwiches vertically) I specifically ask that they cut the sandwich diagonally. (I also apologize profusely when this happens.)" - I am neurotic.
The RSS feed only delivers news as fast as your feed reader can check for updates (which is generally no faster than once every ten minutes or so). I use RSS for a lot of stuff, but because of the rate of new comments appearing on Wordie I don't really think it's practical for this. I just keep the Recent Comments page open in a tab and refresh it every couple minutes.
Yeah, I've always been a little nervous about the RSS feed. Am I signing up for a life-time of wordie spam? (uselessness has listed one new comment. Please log on to see the comment.)

Ooh, cool!! Thanks for letting me know. As you can probably tell, I'm a little slow on the latest info - I don't have the RSS feed so I have to manually check in on Wordie periodically to see what's going on.
