I'm going to put in a request for an explanation on exactly what rule I've broken as well.


1. Post no more than once a page or 24 hours per member, whichever comes first.
Check
2. No repeated words.
I searched the pages, and had found no instances of those words (although I may have been mistaken)
3. No curse words.
I'm pretty sure sile, file, and filo are not offensive to most
4. Must be a legitimate English word.
They are all legit, reference your local oxford dictionary if you don't believe me
5. No words unfit for Scrabble (i.e. proper names etc.)
Check

Mac D posted file.

The 27th word posted in the game was file. See rule #2.

canadiangeek posted Site --> sile --> silo --> filo

The spirit of rule #1 (one post per page/day) is that you post one time, changing one letter to make a new word. If we allow more than one word per post, I could take a few minutes to create word trail that went from the very first word to a dead end surrounded by words that I had used in my own post and ended the game on the second post. As a result, one post has to be limited to one word, else the game can be easily ruined by the first smartass who comes along. Thus, posting three new words in one post breaks the spirit, if not the letter, of the first rule.

That said, sile also does not appear in a search of the official scrabble dictionary (search for yourself), which breaks rule #5.

Bike -> Bile

Edit: Disqualified, as it would seem. I'm not about to search through 22 pages of this to make sure a word is available. [Razz]
