Bizarre new sockpuppet claim

El Naschie's Web site is not El Naschie's, they say.


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:

http://www.el-naschie.net/bilder/image/prof-el-naschie-nobel-laurates-gross-thooft-wilcezk.jpg

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.

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.

  1. As was suggested here:
    "If you ask me I would bet my bottom dollar that this Jason and his El Naschie Watch are an invention by no one else but El Naschie supporters themselves. No one has pushed the cause of Mohamed El Naschie and gained him sympathy in the Arab world like El Naschie Watch."

    At last there is now the proof.
    Whois shows elnaschiewatch.blogspot.com to be registered to the same Anke Boehm:

    domain: elnaschiewatch.blogspot.com
    created: 28-Jan-2009
    last-changed: 29-Jan-2010
    registration-expiration: 28-Jan-2011
    registrant-firstname: Anke
    registrant-lastname: Boehm
    registrant-street1: St.-Erentrudis-Str. 12
    registrant-pcode: 79112
    registrant-city: Freiburg im Breisgau
    registrant-ccode: DE

    And it is no coincidence that the supposed name "Jason" is "Nosaj" backwards, the latter the Arabic word for either "exalted one" or "virile one", said to be how El Naschie's intimate friends and supporters address him in private.

    So by the same logic, if el-naschie.net is not a "pirate site", then neither is this one.

  3. I think "nosaj" ( نسج ) means weave, knit, or spin.
