Citizendium’s reply to Charles Darwin

My dear Darwin,

Having considered your application for becoming a Citizendium editor, we regret to inform you that we must reject your request, since you did not send it through a non-free email address that bears your name or a portion thereof. We understand that for a gentleman of your social standing, it would be unseemly to accept a paid position that would furnish you with such credentials, but I am afraid to tell you that we must insist on proper procedures.

Yours sincerely,

A Founder of Wikipedia
