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.

All subdomains of were inaccessible for a while after a configuration change at my hosting provider. Or maybe an upgrade that went very badly.

I’m still mopping up the consequences, but we seem to be back in business.

Re: Sorry for the outage

Chris—As always, thanks for your invisible, behind-the-scenes work. Hope the cleanup isn’t too onerous.
