Scrabble rules OK

While there's something quite upsetting at finding yourself in agreement with the general sentiment of an article in the Daily Torygraph, I can't help but endorse Tom Chivers' stout defence of the need for a competitive edge in Scrabble. He's right in saying that the rules are there for a reason and can't simply be flouted with abandon, but disappointingly doesn't also take aim at those irritating types who moan on about certain two-letter words not being "proper" words. It's quite simple: if a word appears in the official Scrabble dictionary, then it's a valid play - and if you don't like it, you can lump it. So speaks a militant Scrabble Nazi/nerd...
