Re: Spoilers for Tuesday 21st August 2018 (Series 79, Prelim 40)

What about this TOWAGES contoversy? Has the ODO been updated recently to make it invalid or is it another of Ms Dent's whims? It's listed as a mass noun in the free version. What's the reason for allowing it? (It's on Apterous, just for the record.) TOWAGES has been on apterous since the beginning....
