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.

From the message board at Daily Kos, 11/21/05:
“When anonymous sources are quoted, it implies that some authority is vouching for what they say, some source that, in the case of the New York Times, is assumed to be beyond approach.”
Of course this should be “beyond reproach.”
Over 500 ghits, but muddied by a brand name for software called “Beyond Approach.”
