The Reference Frame decided to raise the grand prize from $3 to $13.08. It is the prize for the first person who will be able to submit a 1-star review under McCutcheon's book "The Final Theory" as explained in
here. Some recent reviews had survived for two days or so. However, Josh Lapan has pointed out that they disappeared once again and the average rating of the crackpot's book - one that even denies the existence of the universal gravitational force that operates both terrestrially as well as celestially - returned to 5 stars. One week seems unbeatable so far despite tens of attempts and several complaints that physics professors from many universities have sent to amazon.com.
If the first 1-star review survives one week provably as a result of an article about the scandal or another influence, the reader of this blog who initiated the article will share the prize with the first reviewer. If no winner appears for a few more weeks, we will increase the grand prize significantly and ask sponsors for their support. If you want to raise the prize immediately, please choose an amount of the format ??.?8 USD (eight cents modulo ten cents), for a better identification, and use this button:
