Q: I have read the "etymology of Erowid" page -- but is that an elaborate joke? Erowid is an anagram of "weirdo".

A: Nope, the etymology isn't a joke. It was pointed out to us that "Erowid" was an anagram for "Weirdo" about a year after the site started. We weren't aware of it before then. In retrospect it seems to suggest we picked the right name. :)
