I think it was likely "unselfconsciousnesses" -- I don't see a 25 letter word recorded in either July or August, and "unselfconscienciousnesses" would be a misspelling. (If that word counts at all, then it should be spelled "unselfconscientiousnesses.")

Ah, yes. I was expressing my doubt as well, but the fact that it's a misspelling even if the unlikely word exists skipped right by me.

Not the first time I've had one of these unselfconsciousnesslessnesses.

I remain on the lookout for antidisestablishmentarian and disestablishmentarianisms.

"Radiobroadcast" was not a word in a brand new puzzle I just did. However, the game accepted "radiobroadcasters" and "radiobroadcaster". I typed in radiobroadcast at least 5 times and checked the spelling.

I'm mostly keeping an eye out for big organic molecules, myself.

Also, speaking as someone who spent two years in med school, there is no such thing as an enterologist. It is ALWAYS preceded with "gastro."

Why is EELER (or EELERS) not accepted, as in a fisherman who catches eels? I don't have a physical dictionary handy, but it shows up on multiple online dictionaries, and it comes up in crossword puzzles all the time, for what that's worth.

And I know this one has been mentioned before, but the number of times I see GEAS and can't use it is really starting to bug me.

(I also posted this in the general forum, but I'm crossposting because I'm not sure which thread is more likely to be seen by admins.)

Radio broadcast(er) is two words--at least, I've never seen it written as one.

Here's another series of [in my opinion] unpredictable correctness:
vaccination = yes
antivaccination = no
vaccinationism = no
antivaccinationism = yes
