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.

Re: Trustpass for tresspass

Wonderful eggcorn. Presumably it means “passing beyond one’s trust”, exceeding the limits of trust. That is, if it is being analyzed by the perps. There are hundreds of hits for trust passer and trust passing. The first I hit upon was also unnecessarily quotatious.
