As I posted, "cc'ed" is the actual dictionary.com entry and therefore not allowed. Scrabble dictionary does not allow copying, at least not with IE, but it lists the definition of "ales" as an alcoholic drink, so that IS a valid work, unlike "cc'ed".

I posted a link to dictionary dot com in my original submission

The last submission was incorrect: -ales
Examples Word Origin
Botany
1.
a suffix of names of orders:
Cycadales.
Origin

Therefore suffixes are not allowed, back to ages, now

"cced" does not exist as listed, even at dictionary.com. They clearly show cc'ed which is not allowed. Furthermore, it is not in the Scrabble dictionary.
