"ain't" IS a contraction (of "am not" and "are not"). So sayeth Merriam-Webster, Wikipedia and the Oxford English Dictionary.

Doesn’t make a diff. I don’t have to either follow or break the rule I propose.

With the apostrophe thingy in it, sure looks like a contraction to me, does it not?

Doesn't make a diff. You do have to follow rule number 5, "Must have more than one syllable". KO correctly pointed out that this rule was not followed. Ain't ain't got but the one syllable.https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/ain%27t

ugh,sorry about that. In addition to failing at making a new rule, I didn't see that existing rule would prohibit me from the word I chose. I need to do a better job at the prevention of those sorts of errors.

Wow that's a lot of rules!

Just want to take the opportunity of this break to tell you I appreciate that you guys are enjoying my game, even though there are only a handful of us participating.

And I'd also like to thank you all for making this probably the most difficult thread game on the board!

Anyways, carry on!

Tim, you have the ball.
