Qualified Words

by Paul Wilson

 

As promised here are the words which have been qualified and disqualified for the $100 Challenge. The judges are still deciding on the winner of this challenge, but there will be a definite decision by Tuesday’s class. However, don’t forget about the $5 challenge I issued yesterday. This challenge is open to everyone in the class. You can continue to find words in the dictionary which have not been purchased as a domain. For every word you find that does not violate the rules spelled out in the $100 Challenge you will get $5. The maximum words you can get paid on are three. So everyone in the class can get up to $15. If you have any questions or if you notice that your word is not on the list feel free to email me or leave a comment.
