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.

During a recent curriculum revision meeting, a public school principal commented that “the plan needed to be flushed out before it could be adopted.”
I just heard this—actually saw it in a document, too—from my boss. She said she knew there was also “fleshed out” but picked “flushed out” because it made more sense to her.
