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.

Someone mentioned to me today having recently seen this word in the Washington Post. Googling it yielded something like 370 unique hits—typically people using it just as one would use “facetious”. The question is: do some people have in mind, however consciously or unconsciously, a meaning connection with the word “feces”?
