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.

This one’s been discussed, with several examples, over at Language Log
( http://languagelog.ldc.upenn.edu/nll/?p=4402 ), but not so much here.
I saw this example on the Style Invitational Devotees Facebook page:
“We now have 85 members of the House who have shunned their noses at us,” said Dustin Stockton, a Texas- and Nevada-based operative and the chief strategist of The Tea Party.net.
Shun your nose and mouth-breathe.
