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.

(Apology)

8 Mar 017

Hey, all,

Sorry for overloading the system all of a sudden. I unexpectedly got most of a day free, and decided to check my database for potential eggcorns I’d flagged in the last year or so. Don’t know when I’ll get a chance to do it again.

Don’t seem to run out of them, though a lot are fairly pedestrian.

Trivial correction, FWIW: Don’t you mean “8 April”?

Re: (Apology)

I lose a whole month, and you think it’s trivial??!!

Welcome back, DavidT. If Henry Stanley shows up, tell him we’ve already found you.

Wasn’t it Groucho who when a reporter accosted him with “Mr. Marx, I presume?”, replied, “You do,” and closed the door in his face?
