First, Ben is not my name, you got my email address right where my first name and last name there but you still called me Ben. 

 Now, how can i become a candidate for your genuine, authentic and honorable Worldwide Whos Who contest list, whatever? Am I required to pay you a few thousand dollars to be included in the prestigious list? 

If yes, then there you are. No questions asked :P
