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.

"jog down" for "jot down"

Spotted this today in the “help” section of AmicusAttorney, a popular software program for the management of small law firms. The thrill of finding an eggcorn as improbable as this is at least a distant cousin to seeing an ivory-billed woodpecker. Nor is it the only one of its species. Googling “jog down” is no help, as there are hundreds of entries of the “jog down Memory Lane” variety. But “Jog down the information” produced one ghit! Two such eggcorns can mate and produce a mighty oak. . .
