Because people misspell words everyday, the misspelled word becomes accepted. That is why English is called a "living" language.

Unuseful game. Many of the words that the game calls incorrect are in fact valid spellings.

Indispensable surprised me! Otherwise really enjoyed this!

Also, a couple of others confused me and when I looked into it, there are two acceptable spellings of harebrained and license, if you consider English spellings as well as American.
