Not sure for how long though, I just contacted Merriam-Webster with this message:

I think you guys should add the word "undercredited" to the dictionary because there is no word that has that meaning at this time.

So STiMan, bask in your glory for now, but in the next edition, undercredited might be in the dictionary

A Nexis database search of English-language periodicals and news stories does supply some evidence for the use of "undercredited," though this usage remains fairly limited at this point in time. Because the evidence for its usage is still so limited and because "undercredited" would be a self-explanatory word (that is, its definition could be easily derived from the definitions of the prefix "under-" and the word "credited"), it is not yet a likely
candidate for inclusion in our dictionaries. Nevertheless, the word has
been added to our citations database so that we can track its usage (more
information on how words make it into our dictionaries can be found at
http://merriam-webster.com/help/faq/words_in.htm).

I made difference

lol....so how does one 'track it's usage'? Maybe if all CF members emailed those people asking them to add it.....it would become a word lol...Or make more of a difference. However, that would mean that newyorker is infact, using a word that's real lol.....

It is still not a word.

Why would you try to get it included? That would be just one less thing that we could make fun of newyorker about. Of course it isnt difficult to find more things to add to the plethora of the things already.

Don't worry about it, if it comes out, we won't tell him...Who really reads a dictionary anyhow?

2. He is in Philly.

3. Everybody hates him because he is a stupid/ignorant/lying/retard.

There is no Soviet Union. It ended when it collapsed in the early 90's/ late 80's. He left because it doesnt exist anymore. Lol...
