Hasbro, which owns the rights to Scrabble in North America, said Tuesday night the players association had "agreed to remove all slurs from their word list for Scrabble tournament play, which is managed solely by NASPA and available only to members." The game that Hasbro sells in retail stores has not included slurs in its dictionary since 1994. But the players association, one of the most prominent governing bodies in competitive Scrabble, had still allowed them.

Finally, the boot to the neck that is Scrabble is being addressed!

It seems frivolous, but I don't mind Scrabble setting the right tone. Maybe if enough people set the right tone the overall situation will improve.

Well I guess I used up my 3 New York Times article already so I don't know which racial slurs I can't use. ------ on a triple word score is serious pointage. Lol.

I play Words with Friends regularly and a friend played "------", I was amused and dumbfounded.

Anyway I am "English major bruce" if anyone feels up to it, I don't need to know you are ,I take on all comers, I ain't bad and I ain't good.
