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.

Re: "chalk full" for "chock full"

We’ve been spammed….

(Or, more charitably, perhaps there is a reference to “chalk full” in that Web site? Ha.)

You can delete it. I don’t want Craig or the others to think I’m calling them spammers! :-) Thanks.

Re: "chalk full" for "chock full"

No problem, I saw the spam. My “first ever post” was not a defense thinking I was accused of spam or anything, though I can see how it might be perceived as that.

Ugh. This is getting messy.
