I encountered today, in the wild, an eggcorn that is not in the database yet shows 69k google hits:

"Unfortunatly you are blindsighted becuase you never has inspections."

Aside from the terrible spelling -- possibly caused by the writer's being slightly (and temporarily) sightily impaired due to an infection -- the word "blindsighted" appears to be a true eggcorn in that it convenes a logical meaning via an unintended spelling error.

Prepared and sent with Chaos Software's Intellect mail client.
Intellect's contacts and appointments managers also are cool.
