CSF author to "professionally annihilate" Jason

An aggrieved Naschienal Socialist comes out of the closet.


Today Luboš Motl blogged about Vinay Deolalikar's claimed proof of P ≠ NP. I left a couple of comments that were skeptical just on the basis of Deolalikar's cover letter, and you can follow the link above to go read them, if interested. But mainly I wanted to point this out: Someone called Shawn Halayka defends Deolalikar and attacks me, saying

Rigour's nice, but when someone's been given a gift of something that they do not have the skill to create by themselves, then complaining about the wrapping that the gift came in is kind of ridiculous... Jason, you better hope and pray that I've miscounted here, because if I am indeed correct, then you're next on my list of people to professionally annihilate, right after I take care of Baez once and for all.


If you click Shawn's name you'll see from reading his older comments that he's generally against me, Martin Klicken, and John Baez. Shawn has a Web site with the cute name cavekitty.ca. The list of his seven manuscripts there explains his antipathy to El Naschie Watch.

UPDATE: Shawn Halayka has added further comments at The Reference Frame.

...you're a pathetic liar... you better be shaking in your boots... it is entirely my prerogative to serve you guys with civil suits at my leisure... I will not hesitate to cut you off at the knees... you made the fatal mistake of attempting to ruin my professional reputation with your ignorant comments... you and Martin are obviously psychotic stalkers, and need to be put down...


Don't be shy, Shawn. Tell us how you really feel.

From the reader comments below, here are further Halayka sightings.

  1. Look at this guy's monologue at Poynder's blog:

    http://poynder.blogspot.com/2009/02/chaos-solitons-fractals-still-looking.html

    I'm not surprised about his threats against you, Jason, at all. :D

    P.S. Oh, I see that he went to the next level: lawsuit threats (Martin included). :D

  2. I wonder, what "professional reputation" is he talking about... Based on his blogger's profile one could only say that his janitor's reputation will be ruined. :D

    ReplyDelete
  3. With his profile I think he's ridiculing the idea of being a "janitor" at a "nonprofit", which seems a low blow to me. Janitorial is honest work and somebody has to do it.

  4. By all means, Jason.

    Anyway, this guy's behavior is symptomatic: it reminds me of a certain Amrit Srecko Sorli (who thinks the Universe is timeless) who threatened with lawsuits because some real scientists joked about his "worm experiment" on a local popular science blog (by the way: even James Randi joked about that). I think there's a common denominator for such people: no formal education, megalomania about their theories and - last but not least - when all other arguments fail, legal arguments apply.

  5. My preliminary assessment of Shawn is that he has an undergraduate education as a math or science major, is indignant at being unappreciated by the science community, depended on CSF to publish his papers and is angry at the loss of that option, and has an exaggerated sense of self-importance or perhaps a mild bipolar disorder. Maybe he'll show up here and put in his two cents. I hope so.

  6. El Naschie's Rosa Al-Youssef column is up, and he talks about his boyhood and his father.

    Wednesday August 11. Test the military before going to the cinema. Arabic or English.

    First of a two-parter. El Naschie's father Major General Salah al-Din Hamid Alnchaii died nearly two decades ago and was the perfect father. On a salary of 45 pounds per month his father managed to educate the three sons as scientists and university professors. (He's greatly underplaying his family's wealth here.) At four or five years old Mohamed accompanied his father to Wadi Hof and slept in caves among the ammunition stores. He remembers having to give passwords. His father told him about Gen. Erwin Rommel, and that the English used Indian soldiers for mine clearing, considering them expendable. El Naschie read Principles of War by Carl von Clausewitz, and The Prince by Machiavelli, given to him by his father. On Thursday he went to the movies, but only after doing his multiplication tables. Not being a hero-type, El Naschie ultimately gave up on the possibility of a military career. He went to Germany to study art, philosophy, European literature, and some Civil Engineering. But he did wish he could be a military officer or a military-technical teacher and help liberate Palestine and expel the British from Egypt.

    I think there is a lot of made-up self-aggrandizement going on here. Zahy, what do you think?

  7. I'm still wondering why El naschie's father did only send the great man to be graduated from Germany and he did not send (Said El naschie) as well.

    I hope in the forthcoming columns El nashie would tell us his favorite stories about Said who stole his mother's money and Said's wife (Shadia) who went to prison. These also are interesting stories about his family.

  8. Haha yes! It would be nice if El Naschie invited Amr to do a guest column.

  9. El Naschie's Rosa Al-Youssef column is up. Thursday August 12. Bet on not to hit Iran. Arabic or English.

    El Naschie said yesterday that this was to be the second column of a two-parter, but he's apparently decided to write a third part tomorrow.

    El Naschie gives various reasons he thinks the US and Israel will not respond to Iran's nuclear program with military force. Iran is too populous, rugged in terrain, and scientifically advanced for the US to attack at this time with ground forces. In a full nuclear exchange, he says, Iran, Palestine, Lebanon and parts of Syria would be damaged but could recover. But Israel would be completely destroyed. The last of three parts comes tomorrow.

    ReplyDelete
  10. El Naschie's Rosa Al-Youssef column is up. Friday August 13. Egyptian solution to the problem of Iran. Arabic or English.

    Third and final part.

    He quotes Carl von Clausewitz as saying war is dimplomacy by other means and vice versa. War with Iran won't happen because it's in nobody's interest, he says. And Barack Obama has intelligence, character and humanity. But he is politically hobbled (by Israel he has said in the past). There may instead be a psychological war with Israel and America trying to frighten Iran. The solution to this whole mess, he says, is to leave Israel and the US out of it and make Egypt central to negotiations with Iran. El Naschie approves of the position of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak that the Middle East should be a region free of nukes and weapons of mass destruction.

    He concludes with a cocky bet to his readers that there won't be a war with Iran, acknowledging that betting isn't Islamic, but that he can accept his winnings as a punitive payment.

    There is no Saturday column.

  11. Martin, could you be so kind as to see that you provide a review of my three most recent papers?

    Hugs and kisses,
    Shawn

    ReplyDelete
  12. Shawn, thank you for commenting. Would you give a link to the papers you mean, please? Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Jason,

    Because you're actually being civil, I'll respond:

    They're on vixra, the crackpot preprint server. You should know this already though, given that you hang around at The Reference Frame.

    Apparently everyone but you knows that I've had a stellar 15-year career as a communications system analyst, graphics programmer, etc. I won't go into further detail, lest you think that I'm bragging about anything other than the sheer awesomeness of the province that I live in.

    While janitorial work is indeed necessary, I only do it because I'm deathly allergic to white-collar corporate creeps. Perhaps you may wish to ask Dr. Motl what this toxidrome is like, since you obviously don't take a single word I say as realistic.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Shawn, please give direct links to the exact versions of your vixra papers you want reviewed. I see six titles and many versions. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Shawn, I've seen your papers on vixra already and they seem to me like joke papers - by quality very alike to Amrit Sorli's.

    No offense, it's only my humble opinion.

  16. Hi Jason
    On El Naschie's Rosa Al-Youssef column on Thursday August 12. Bet on not to hit Iran

    You didn't notice the following passage
    ولم يتبق لي سوي معركتي العلمية مع الغرب التي لم تنته
    بعد لصالحي بالشكل المطلوب
    Which means

    (I'm left only with the scientific battle with the West that have not yet over for me as required.)

    I think that he meant his suit against nature or may be the worthy Nobel prize that he missed it although he has been nominated several times.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Zahy, that's an important observation because it means he's still completely unchanged and unrepentant. Excellent.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Shrink, I appreciate your opinion. May I see your papers?

    In any case, Amrit Sorli is obviously a terrible artist and cannot operate OpenGL, let alone Photoshop. Your comparison is not quite perfect.

    I assume that you also take the quantum graphity group to be crackpots as well, since my two latest papers are based on their model?

    - Shawn

    P.S. Jason knows that I was just fucking with him on Motl's blog. I don't see the emails that Jason and I exchanged up here, so I thought I'd mention it explicitly.

    So yeah, I won't be "annihilating" anyone, let alone John Baez. I mean, if you've been following Motl's blog, you know that Baez is doing a fine job of annihilating himself already.

    Sorry Jason. :(

    ReplyDelete
  19. P.P.S. Did you catch on Motl's blog where I explained that I was doing a chimerical impersonation?

    Like, it included Jason (sleezy and psychotic), El Naschie (prone to suing), John Baez (narcissistic, full of shitty scientific ideas), and Lee Smolin (just plain whiney about money and recognition).

    Again, sorry Jason. I was wasting your time on purpose.

  20. Hey, I know how we can really separate the wheat from the chaff here.

    Perhaps you can help me using your math skills.

    My paper "Can the external directed edges of a complete graph... blah blah" relies on the graph's vertices to be embedded in flat space.

    This problematic in terms of the 1/2 of the quantum graphity model where the graph is used to form a Reimannian manifold. The problem is that I cannot use my method any longer because the Reimannian space isn't embedded in flat space anymore. :(

    I've been trying to cast a net to find the answet to this beautiful problem, but I just can't seem to find it. Any ideas? :)

    Five anti-crackpot points to whomever gives the correct answer first.

  25. Hey shrink,

    Any chance that you could spare the time to review my latest paper?

    LOL, what a little bitch.

  26. P.S. Hey, there's always other stereotypes and lies that you can take advantage of... Have fun with that. Bitch.

  27. Shawn, why don't you submit it to your fellow Brotherhood members? I'm sure they will find it appropriate for publication even without any review at all (ya know: "Senior people are above this childish, vain practice of peer review."). LOL
