It is actually a word. Check for yourself at Dictionary.com
"Worse" is the comparative form of bad or ill. Adding the suffix "r" to form a comparative is redundant, like adding an extra "s" to the word "mice" to make a plural.
If Dictionary.com lists worser as a word, I'd make a point of getting my information from sources other than Dictionary.com.
No, it is not a proper word. The whole article is chock full of mistakes and misspellings. I certainly would take anything in it seriously. Don't give up on the whole site, there are good writers here.
"Worser" is not an accepted word in the English Language. . . but guess what? Those "rules" about language are useless, or pointless-if communication is the goal, and you've succeeded with jibberish, "worser or more better."
Believe it or not, it is not just dictionary.com that lists "worser" as a legitimate word. One of my hard-copy dictionaries (Random House, c1968) lists it as a dialect word, used as an adjective or an adverb, meaning "worse."
I would not have guessed it, and I only checked it out of curiosity after seeing this question.
This does not make it acceptable in good, standard English. But it is actually a real word in some dialect or other of English. I don't know which one it would be.
