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.

Sheik << Sikh

Candidate gaffe “We had a moment of silence in honor of the people who lost their lives at that sheik temple.”

However, Mitt Romney was not the first to conflate an Arab honorific with a religion originating in India.

Travel blog “We were next to a Sheik Temple and were awakened by their morning prayers and chants at 4 am every morning (no need for an alarm clock!)”

Forum flamewar “Turbans are not part of our religion, thats part of the sheik religion, so get that fact clear in your head.”
