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.

If someone does something carelessly, they may not be paying attention and may take the action unintentionally.
Message board: “sorry if you got offended by my reply it was not my attention.”
Message board: “I may Have Unattentionally Hurt someones Feelings”
Answer website: “what will happen for missing the first court date unattentionally?”
Technical assistance website: “Unattentional distribution of meating confirmations”
Article on professional writing: “My attention was to fulfill a lifelong goal to pursue a fulltime writing career post-retirement.”
I also ran across the neologism “unattentionable” – not sure if people using this actually mean “unintentional.”
“They have confusing, complex, and unattentionable urges and fantasies!”
