QUESTIONABLE WORD DEFINITION

In word round #10581, the answer for #8 "to disturb the composure of, etc." was given as "phase." my dictionary shows the answer to be "faze" and nowhere in the "phase" definitions is this use given. Comment?

well I found that OUT OF PHASE means in an unsynchronized manner, not in correlation. That could be like disturbing composure. But out of phase seems like an opposite of phase.

But you're right, FAZE has that exact meaning.

With all sort of /, #,%,*, hyphens in the darndest places and old-fashioned misspellings, it would seem that Word Rounds could use a good dose of editing as much as quizzes.
