Review of eggcorn site

A recent review of our site from one of the editors at the Macmillan English Dictionaries online magazine: … -Watch.htm

I sent a note to the reviewer asking her to correct the misstatement about forum inactivity.

Re: Review of eggcorn site

I guess she was confused by the “Registrations are temporarily closed” message. She couldn’t have looked much at the forum, though, to come to her conclusion.

Except for that, it’s a pretty good review.
