Discussions about the James Randi Educational Foundation and its Million Dollar Challenge.
Hope everyone is doing well.
I tried registering for the JREF forums as a test to see if they are truly a non-biased organization as they claim.
For unknown reasons they cancelled my registration request, no reason was given, I emailed Lisa Simpson personally and asked if the problem whatever it was could be resolved.
The reason I post this info here is to show anyone interested (I have no idea who would be and who wouldn't be) in the handle cecil1 that JREF refused an account to me as I requested the moniker cecil1.
Anyways JREF doesn't seem to want to debunk anything I have to say, case closed apparently!
Have a great day everyone and be well
Hey cecil1! Welcome back!
I'm wondering if you are leaving anything out of the story?
Did you previously have a JREF account that was banned? Did you put anything in the application that might raise red flags?
Anything else that might hint at why you weren't approved?
Thanks for the completely civil reply Arouet I reciprocate.
Nothing is left out of the story here unfortunately
No red flags were visible in my eyes, I Gave my correct information as requested by the forum application webpage.
First name last name etc etc... actually they didn't ask for much personal info besides birthday and real name, that surprised me.
I thought JREF would be estatic about being able to debunk me personally, I thought wrong... how odd
Be well sir.
Oh and no I have never applied for a registration for JREF ever before today, they were lightning fast at deleting the application account however... lightning fast as within 3-4 hours, lightning sure has slowed down since I was a lad:)
(p.s. that was a joke )
As stated I emailed Lisa Simpson personally and asked if the problem (whatever the problem may be) could be resolved by any means.
I followed the instructions as best I could.
The response was an automatic account deletion without approval.
The account was deleted before it was approved via email notice to my email address I registered with.
I wonder why they won't approve my registration... JREF debunks faslehoods so why wouldn't they rejoice at being able to debunk cecil1?
I guess the world will never know why JREF deleted my account for no reasons given.
I don't see why you can't. It was sent to your private email account so I would think that you have every right to share it however you would like. Just make sure to cut out any personal information from the original header as the bots around here may spam the crap out of you.
Dear cecil1, *Automated response* Unfortunately we couldn’t complete your registration for the JREF Forum. We do not retain details of accounts that have not been approved however the most likely reason is that some required information wasn’t entered during the registration process (First name, Last name, Country and State if in the USA). Please either try again to register or drop me an email and I will do my best to sort out any problems you may be experiencing. **Note** my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, if you reply to the email address this email was sent from (email@example.com) it will cause a delay in our response to any query you may have, Regards Lisa Simpsonlisa_simpson@randi.orgJREF Forum Administrator
Ahhh wordwrap, the format changed upon the copy paste.

Not sure if I want to post my email on the site here, probably wise not to.
Anyways very curious stuff! Anxiously awaiting Lisa Simpsons reply! (if I even get one)
What is weird is I remember filling out all the details accurately and correctly.
Not sure if I was supposed to cut out the jref emails or not ninja.
I just thought it would show that I do have correspondence with the JREF email system.
Here is what I sent Lisa Simpson:
Subject: acct removed?
Hi my name is Matthew and the handle I registered at JREF was cecil1. JREF seems unable to process the registration form I applied for, is there some trouble involved with activating an acct for me?
Please let me know how it can be resolved.
Thanks and have a great day!
Who cares if the bots spam the JREF. I'm sure they're used to it. It's your email addy that you don't want to add to a post unless you need viagra, girls with big boo@4 or you want to win the Nigerian Lottery.
