That is an interesting term... care to share the story?
JREFUGEES (JREF Forum Refugees) was coined once people started getting frustrated with the JREF forums. JREF started implementing inconsistent moderation, and people got banned or left because friends got banned. I don't know who coined it, but the term existed long before the FaceBook group. I was a JREFugee when I started posting here.

The term really took hold once JREF closed its forums and handed it off to an independent group to create the "International Skeptics Forum." I don't know much about ISF, but it seems that anyone who was mildly unhappy with how JREF forums were managed were made to be extremely unhappy, and there were several high-profile bans. There were also quite a few people who just didn't bother to move to the new forum when the association with JREF ended.
