On the 603 thread, in a post timestamped Mar. 4, 2010 @ 23:36 GMT, sockpuppet "Anon" tries to clear El Naschie of blame for the fake El Naschie-Wilczek-'t Hooft-Gross picture by claiming the site hosting it is not El Naschie's site, but rather
a pirate site not owned or operated by El Naschie
Let's sanity check that.
Here's a direct link to the fake photo:
El Naschie's Web site that hosts the picture is http://www.el-naschie.net/.
Whois shows it to be registered to Anke Boehm, shown in the photo above standing next to El Naschie at Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in June, 2002.
registrant-street1: St.-Erentrudis-Str. 12
registrant-city: Freiburg im Breisgau
We have written about the El Naschie-Boehm connection at length in Fortasse pecunia olet interdum. The Boehms are close associates of El Naschie. Dr. H.G. Boehm helped El Naschie with day-to-day management of Chaos, Solitons and Fractals before Elsevier forced the Great Man out of the Editor-in-Chief position. He was El Naschie's spokesman, and issued El Naschie's initial response to Quirin Schiermeier's Nature article.
The assertion that el-naschie.net is a "pirate site" is desperate and deranged.
