Registrations were closed for a long time because of forum spam, but I have re-opened them on a trial basis.

The forum administrator (chris dot waigl at gmail dot com) reserves the right to request users to plausibly demonstrate that they are real people with an interest in the topic of eggcorns. Otherwise they may be removed with no further justification. Likewise, accounts that have not been used for posting may be removed.

Thanks for your understanding.

'loaf to' for 'loath to'

loath -> loathe may not be a eggcorn but this has better credentials, mixing rluctance (loath) and laziness (loaf). But it’s rare. Examples:

After reading all this crap about Durai, I am loaf to donate ANY money to ANY charity however good their intentions maybe. id=14&fid=chit&tid=8541&rpp=10&highlight=

I am loaf to respond to this Thread again but… showthread.php?s=ea95c5dadb8fb29043f2e80affa2602a&threadid=48712&goto=n…

... and I was loaf to send my password over the internet unencoded;...

Although I’m loaf to say this{I’m nervous about what that winters are like in
Cville} I’m actually a little excited about seeing the River when we get Snow.
