Also, I had MATTY rejected on a second board.
Matty isn't a SOWPODS word. I know I attempt it a lot and need to "unlearn" it.

It seems that the base point worth stops at 42, can this be fixed?
Just encountered this.

PREDICTIVE and PREDICTIVENESSES both took, but PREDICTIVENESS didn't.

I'm increasingly dissatisfied with omitted biology terms, such as CEPHALISED.

Oh, here's an interesting one.

I was given credit for the following words:
COLORIMETER (16), COLORIMETRIC (14), COLORIMETRICAL (26), COLORIMETRICALLY (30), COLOURIMETRICALLY (32)

The British spellings COLOURIMETER, COLOURIMETRIC, COLOURIMETRICAL, and COLOURIMETRICALLY were all rejected -- but for some reason COLOURIMETRICALLY was OK.

I've tried "geas" a few times and it woudn't accept it. Not a common word but definitely a real one

Another case of British spellings being rejected: I got credit for SPECIALIZED, SPECIALISED, OVERSPECIALIZED, OVERSPECIALIZING, and OVERSPECIALISING, but for some reason OVERSPECIALISED didn't take.

Why isn't BURRATA accepted? Other cheeses seem to be.

Unworkableness isn't accepted, but a plural version of it is and that version isn't exactly accepted by the dictionary you use...
