<upd_detl>Certainly みんなさん is comparatively rare (&lt;0.02%), and incorrect, but should it be expunged completely? We include quite a few not uncommon misspellings. Is it more unacceptable than こんにちわ?
(I remember being asked to remove the 部落民 entry on the grounds that the word was unacceptable. I didn't.)</upd_detl>

<upd_detl>OK, I have discussed this offline with the OP, and I think みんなさん is probably best in its own entry with clear labelling of its status. We did the same for こんにちわ/こにちは/etc.</upd_detl>
