Will these descrambler-using MFs never stop - especially in tournament games? I have to ask for a simple, common word like "poi" to be added and they keep getting points for words like "thein,"

"Thein" does NOT exist in either of the approved dictionaries. Please remove it.

Thank you.

Thein has been removed.

If abbreviations aren't allowed, why is execs allowed?

According to: http://www.thefreedictionary.com/execs is it not an abbr. but informal. http://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/american/exec?showCookiePolicy=true
The wordlist was there before the rules, so it can happen that there are forbidden words. Therefore this topic.
But informal is also not allowed. It has been removed.

My opponent just scored the winning points with the dubious "wifing"

I'd think that that is slang, and a smelly one at best.
Am I incorrect?

No slang as far as I can see.

My opponent used this word in a current game, "chintses". I am unable to find the word in the free and Collins dictionary. Is it valid then, if so, what does it mean and where can it be found?
Thank you.

In that case "zoo" should be allowed as well shouldn't it?
