For those of you who listen to the "Skeptics Guide to the Universe" podcast (and if you don't...shame on you!), you will be aware the James Randi explained the reasons behind withdrawing the million dollar challenge. The simple reason is that it will never be claimed and that members of JREF have too much work to do as it is, without wasting time on hoaxers and charlatans.

For all the victims of Randi's monstrous idea....

Visit:

http://www.centerforinquiry.net/forums/ ... d/3283/P0/

to see how we stopped James Randi's fraudulent MILLION DOLLAR PARANORMAL challenge.....

watch carefully the consequences of Randi's *idea*…..

For over 40 years James Randi Zwigert (is this even a REAL NAME?) has had total control over who and how the testing was conducted, yet despite all this he has terminated the challenge.

The ONLY REASON why the challenge was stopped is because he lost and refused to pay.

Apparently, Randi likes to break the rules when it serves him:

http://www.randi.org/joom/content/view/40/32/

"14. This prize will continue to be offered until it is awarded. Upon the death of James Randi, the administration of the prize will pass into other hands, and it is intended that it continue in force. "

Great force.....it's over......

where is my MILLION DOLLARS, you LITTLE *NO-NAME* FRAUD

:no spam:

If there's one thing worse than a spammer, it's a spammer who doesn't even remember that's he's already registered and posted his nonsense once before and does the same thing all over again.

I have now banned this user and toaded both his accounts.

Jebus H Twiced...I left Orange because it didn't provide the quality of Wannado which it fucked totally and then went to Talk Talk which now seems to be totally and entirely FUBAR'd by AO effing L. What in heaven's scumbucket name do all of us Internet users have to do to get customer satisfaction.

Some deep shit is being laid on us and at our own expense too? AOL you are an effing shit provider!!!!

PS Alan H, this is why I cannot seek any of your kindly proferred assistance - I have seen a total deterioration of ISP service and can no longer trust the web beyond hobbying and socialising...if the bloody service is running at its proclaimed speed.

Oh yeah...Randi, erm...?

Apologies for my last remarks. When I typed that, I was at the limit of my patience with the internet and I shouldn't really complain as rudely on a public forum like this.
I will not explain why I'm so frustrated but I would like to retract my statements and hope I haven't offended anyone.

However, as I've been recommended to change once more to Tiscali (BT), does anyone else have any gripes with this ISP?

Until I'm confident I can access an efficient and more friendly provider, in my own mind I cannot proceed with creating and maintaining a website/log.

Don't apologise, Graham, I share all your frustrations about our own ISP. I wasn't aware that Tiscali was BT. Are you sure? I haven't tried Tiscali but I do have a problem with BT that is a bit complicated to explain.

Unless there's been a take-over I'm unaware of, Tiscali is not connected with BT. I have used Tiscali for the last 18 months and apart from one horrendous week last year when none of my emails went anywhere, and I wasn't aware of it for 10 days, I have been happy with them.

Know we're well off topic but hope that helps, H :smile:

Why do you have such a nasty way of referring to people you do not like or do not agree with?

Banning one account doesn't stop people registering another from a different IP address and email, unfortunately. His third account here has now been banned.

Orange is playing up again. It was like this last Sunday and I was told they were having equipment. It was reasonably OK during the week, but went again yesterday. When I phoned Technical Support, the woman there was VERY HELPFUL!!! She sounded as if she knew what she was talking about and took my problem seriously and escalated it. She said to phone back today to see what's been done.

The problems have re-appeared this evening (I get Server not found errors a lot of the time, while other websites are OK) and have now spent 16 minutes 33 seconds in a queue... :sleep:

After 1 hour 14 minutes...

After me telling him more than he told me (there really is no need to disable my firewall, yes, I know how to ping), they have escalated the problem and, well, I don't know when it will be fixed, but their engineers will investigate. He did seem to acknowledge that there was a problem...but they can't let me know when they have fixed it. I'll just have to wait and see. Apparently.

Million Dollar Challenge Update: It's not ending!
from Phil Plait

We have a fantastic announcement to make:

The JREF's famous Million Dollar Challenge will continue!

Last year, we announced that the MDC would end in March 2010 due to the strains on time and effort of the JREF staff. However, after much discussion, we have decided not to terminate the Challenge. Instead, we are in the process of examining how it can be improved, streamlined, and made more efficient so that we can continue to use it to test claims of the paranormal.

However, we haven't made any final decisions about it yet; we're taking our time and making sure we do this right. When next March comes around we will roll out the new and improved Million Dollar Challenge. So never fear! We will continue to test the claims and examine the evidence, and we will always strive to ensure that reality - as it usually tends to do - wins out.

Why do we get the eccentrics after they’ve been banned from everywhere else?

This one is Montreal’s David Mabus (aka Dr Dennis Markuze) who cuts and pastes the same ramblings about Nostradamus on a whole range of sites. They didn’t make any sense on other fora either.

One of his best claims is that Nostradamus predicted the coming of Depeche Mode (yes, that Depeche Mode, Basildon’s 1980s electronic band) and through them the World Trade Centre attacks. Apparently Depeche Mode's Enjoy the Silence video supports his firm belief that Nostradamus "stopped the Randi-Dawkins-Myers Corp".

He's already been banned rom this forum several times before. The poor guy appears to have mental health problems. I'm deactivating his latest account and suggest ignoring any of his silly posts should he reappear.

ETA: I decided to merge his latest threat with others he started in his previous incarnations.
