: Instead of a definition, I got this message:

: Main Entry: faddle
: faddle is one of more than 1,000,000 entries available at Merriam-WebsterUnabridged.com. Click here to start your free trial!

I went back and typed some other words and was able to access definitions. Maybe it was a false alarm. Or they don't like the word "faddle."
