One is that coming to this site seems to provoke my antivirus (Microsoft Security Essentials) into telling me that I’m infected with
It cleans it up and nothing else happens until the next time. I dare say it’s a false alarm but I have no way of checking if other antiviruses have the same reaction.
Another is that there is some techy stuff at the very top of the page that says
Warning: touch() [function.touch]: Unable to create file /tmp/preview/188.8.131.52.log because No such file or directory in /home/lascribe/public_html/eggcorns/forum/footer.php on line 215
Which doesn’t bother me in the slightest, except aesthetically.
