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.

The deeper we dig for the roots of eggcorns, the more we get caught up in the gray areas, the maybe-eggcorns, the doesn’t-really-feel-like-eggcorns. The entire eggcorn concept is still being clarified and delimited.
Here is some reading from Language Log, if you are interested in non-eggcorns that are yet sufficiently close to be hard to distinguish from what we call eggcorns.
