To think I should be able to play scrabble on-line

Without fending off sleazy men

I am playing scrabble because I am a dull person. I'm not on an adult webcam dating site FFS. If you want a shag, google shagsforeveryone of something.

I have had 3 different pervs this morning. I ignore and forfeit games but some are persistent and there isn't a block or report function.

It's bloody scrabble. Leave me alone.

Rant over.

I only play with FB friends. Since only two of them play scrabble it's not very varied but the idea of playing 'blind' with someone who could be knocking one out over my TOOLBOX is frankly off putting!

Lucyellensmum95 Sat 16-Mar-13 12:11:04

just play with women - sorted

catgirl1976 Sat 16-Mar-13 12:12:20

Arf @ knocking one out over your toolbox smile

I only have 1 fb friend who plays and although we do play everyday it's a bit slow and I am signed off work atm so Scrabble has been my displacement activity

I might only play other women and men I have played before who have not bothered me

My favourite is "Hey gorgeous, I can't see your Facebook page"

No. No you can't. Because it's set up so random strangers can't see it. You have proved that to be a wise move

Try the qat qi app. I love it and it is solo.

catgirl1976 Sat 16-Mar-13 12:17:45

Oooh sounds good

Is it not really hard if you are playing against a computer?

I use isc sometimes. Have had the odd perv / weirdo - i just block them (or sometimes let them keep typing so that me and DH can laugh at them!

Re: qat qi - it seems to be a hybrid of scrabble and bananagrams. There is a new puzzle each day, the puzzles get harder during the week. You are not playing against a computer, but trying to maximise your points. Do allow access to your location, because then you can see how your score compares to others in your area/ county/ country and the world.

This game comes with an addiction warning from both me and my DH.

Urgh.

Can anyone that you know is "sound" online recommend their contacts to play with?

Sorry that you're signed off work, hope things get better soon.

catgirl1976 Sat 16-Mar-13 14:03:27

Thanks Doctrine thanks I'm getting better slowly

That's a good idea. I will ask my FB friend who plays and a couple of the "normal" people I now play regularly with for some contacts. I bet they are sick of it too!

catgirl1976 Sat 16-Mar-13 14:04:02

I;m going to try qat qi too grin

Bugger the washing up

I play wordfued on my phone (like scrabble) and I only play with my friends in rl or with other opponents that I know are ok.
Have had the occassional perv so don't select 'play with random opponent' any more.
Love it although it's addictive lol!

teenagersmother Sat 16-Mar-13 14:11:40

wordfeud I mean

catgirl1976 Sat 16-Mar-13 14:23:44

They are everywhere (random pervs)

I just don't get why they don't go somewhere like a dating site where people might be a little more receptive

Although I suppose even random pervs need other interests

Pandemoniaa Sat 16-Mar-13 15:19:00

I play Words With Friends so you know who you are playing with and though some of my friends are on Facebook, not all are. But you still have to "accept" games before they are played and I've never been contacted by anyone I don't know so I'm wondering what your privacy settings are like, OP. Only theres no way I'd play any game like this in a way that allowed random strangers to get in touch.

I play scrabble on facebook and can't believe some of the pervs you get. However some folks profile pictures kind of suggest that they are using scrabble to "find someone". Why they choose scrabble though I don't know.

catgirl1976 Sat 16-Mar-13 15:27:24

My privacy settings on FB are reall strict, so no one can see anything about me, just my profile pic which is not sexy

You play random people on scrabble (if you chose to) which i do as only one friend plays, i am just surprised by the pervs
