from Scrabulous

I freely admit I am a big Scrabble dork, and lately I have been really into playing online at Scrabulous. Scrabulous is a site that allows you to play Scrabble with your friends over email and most recently on Facebook. My friends and I are addicted to this game, so imagine my horror when I read Shawnz twitter that Hasbro, the maker of Scrabble, is trying to shutdown the site.

Apparently Scrabble recently inked a licensing deal with video game manufacturer Electronic Arts. Now they don't want the two India-based brothers who created Scrabulous to profit from it.

A Facebook group has already been started to save the site. Last time I checked, they had 233 members.
