"stricked" for "strict"

She was stricked, but we loved her.
FB comment

She told me that I’m too stricked. That she only get along with all naughtiness because her friend said at some point that our house is boring and she felt bad.

I must say that I am a perfectionist, I am very stricked to good behaviors and I love to hang out with nice people.

I’m not going to do exactly what she says as it is too stricked for me but I’m going to take some useful things from it and adapt it to how we want to do things.

This one is pretty common, but I’m not sure I can make a case for eggcornicity. I have noticed that some people use “stricked” for “stricken”, so it’s possible that encountering someone who is strict can be experienced by some as being stricken with needless constraints, but that seems like a bit of a stretch. More likely, people are just assuming that “stricked” is a form of some presumed word “strick”.
