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.

Found this in the comments at the Daily Kos blog this morning:
<I remember during Watergate, my late Dad said,
” It is hard to tell your crooks without a program.” We laughed that we should have sold Watergate Programs with each player’s name, crimes, and sorted details.>
Assuming the writer meant sordid details, the meaning dovetails with the activity of sorting the crimes and crooks into a program, so the details were both sordid and sorted?
