I thought the rules were change one letter?  Since the post started with a 4 letter word, and is now at 5, then adding a letter must be okay, which means subtracting one should be okay too.

Edit: I looked back through the list, and found out the game was restarted with a 5 letter word.  Still, it seems to me that adding or subtracting a letter should be okay, because the subtle point of this game is that sometimes random changes can result in something functional.  This is the theory behind random mutation and evolution, and one of those possible changes is addition or deletion of a base to the host DNA.  But if the rules do not allow addition or subtraction of a letter, no problem.
