Another question to which the answer is certainly no.
Continuing in the crank email series, today a particularly deluded individual moved to believe her work to such an extent she has effectively asked everyone to shut down particle physics and bow to her, using an appropriated email address.

Not necessaries more experiments, theories and models about the particle and atomic world, because now exists the very simple and real physics of these!
This is an exceptional and private notice from ten members of APS to all physicists in the world. Six months ago we heard about the paper of Prof. Gabor Fekete, who is a hungarian physicist. We were thoughtfully that the theories and models of the particle and atomic physics every were till now incorrects. The professor reinterprets the total known experimental results and uses solely the mathematical apparatus of dynamics and electrodynamics. With these he got back with eight numeral exactitude the values about every till now known experimental results. We state positively that her paper is the giant revolution of the physics science. We wish with
this mail to suggest Prof. Gabor Fekete for Nobel Prize.
Because we know very well that this news not will be welcomed by everybody (we for this reason selected this way to your notice), therefore if you also think to nominate for Nobel Prize the author of the paper, then you are requested to exert pressure on The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, Stockholm, so that you do send an email to Prof. Ingmar Bergström and/or Prof. Per Carlson
Please, forward this email with the original subject to your journalist and other acquaintances too! Thanks.
The article: THE REAL PARTICLE AND ATOMIC PHYSICS – INSTEAD OF THEORIES – WITH REINTERPRETATION OF THE KNOWN EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS AND CONFIRMED BY THE LAWS OF THE CLASSICAL PHYSICS.
We sent our notice to 70775 members of 6095 research labs, institutes, faculties and departments of physics, astronomy, mathematics and chemistry in 103 countries and merely in the United States 1015 universities and colleges.
The old perennial – scientists have been working on a super complex theory of particle physics including Relativity, when in fact everything is explained simply by classical physics, which the layman can understand. Gabor insists she has published a paper expounding her views and showing how all experimentally derived values can be found through classical mechanics only. This paper is visible at her website…
…and only at her website since not being a proper scientific paper it hasn’t gone through peer review and publishing in a journal. Gabore makes a common mistake in thinking that physics is just a collection of mathematical equations and a couple of experimental values in need of explanation. In fact, physics is a philosophy of the action of natural forces and theories must make a sound argument for the nature of these forces, backed up by evidence and producing predictions on future occurrences. Gabore merely does a few derivations of dubious mathematical quality using physics in the classical mold (where it suits her). Things outside of the classical mode – massless photons, time dilation leading to the survival of high energy cosmic rays down to lower than otherwise expected altitudes and the bending of light by gravitational effects – are all left unsaid. Predictions of things to look for are absent, indeed the call is that no further looking is required at all – the mistake of putting mathematical elegance ahead of philosophic self consistency, which is often made inside and outside of science. Additionally, the university quoted for Gabor does indeed have a professor of that name – a biologist in their dotage.
Also, the American Physical Society has spellcheckers, native English speakers and an awareness that spamming inboxes with an unpublished paper is not the best way to promote a Nobel Prize candidate…
