In FQXi El Naschie discussion archive part one you will find six uses of "viscous" to mean "vicious" by sockpuppets Moustapha Khalil, M.B., and E-infinity. In That SCIAM comment archive sockpuppets Maysa and Moustapha Khalil do it. In E-infinity babbles on interminably, E-infinity does it. In Final Brotherhood member identified! Anonymous E-Infinity Communication does it twice.
Today we have this new comment on Erdferkel's blog:
#25 - Ahmad Islam 2010-11-30 13:26
Dear Dr. Ron Smith,
The information given to you is totally incorrect. The number of Prof. El Naschie’s papers published which you give is over 17 years the period during which he was the Editor in Chief of Chaos, Solitons & Fractals [before being fired]. During this entire time he was not affiliated with Alexandria University, only in the last five years. Prof. El Naschie published nearly a thousand papers in ten or more different fields including science policy, art, literature and history. He is not only a scientist but a scholar and a benevolent man of great knowledge, fortune and the right attitude towards the developing world where he emanated from. Mohamed El Naschie was raised and educated in West Germany, not Egypt.
All this knowledge and information you can obtain directly by researching the subject properly or by reading his daily column in Rosa Al Yusuf, a semi-official daily newspaper published by the Rosa AlYusuf enterprise in Cairo and you can also find it on line. In fact Prof. El Naschie wrote a few days ago an article condemning the article published in the New York Times. His column was entitled half-truths of the New York Times. Maybe you would like to know the origins of the fuss about Prof. El Naschie. Since you are a political scientist, you may like to know that he is a member of the Peace Now Organization in Israel and has spoken vigorously about the rights of the Palestine as well as the rights of Israel to exist and live in peace. Today’s article in Rosa AlYusuf is about the courage of Emil Zola in the Dreyfuss affair as well as a plea to release all innocent prisoners in Israel. Mohamed El Naschie is a very original thinker. He was trained as a structural engineer and practiced his profession for many years before becoming an academic and full professor in engineering. Even later still he moved his interests to theoretical physics. He is one of three main proponents of a radical new theory of spacetime based on fractals. The other two are Garnet Ord in Canada and Laurent Nottale in France. It is because of his original work which was hijacked and published in Scientific American in the year 2008 [see That SCIAM comment archive] that all this scandal was created purposely and maliciously. The scientific thieves [Jerzy Jurkiewicz, Renate Loll and Jan Ambjorn] seem to be a group around a very prominent Nobel laureate [Gerard 't Hooft]. It is very unfortunate that Prof. El Naschie has no way of defending himself or allowing us to defend him because the Nobel laureate is a very close family friend of his. Do not take my word for it but research it yourself. The whole fuss about El Naschie is a mixture of political intrigue, Middle Eastern style and scientific funding of theoretical physics as well as fights for prize money and glory, including the Nobel prize for which he was nominated several times. This nomination may not be the short list but I know for sure that nomination took place. One of the nominators was a Nobel laureate who lives in the capital of a very small but prominent country [?]. It is very unfortunate that your blog and your article is being used by an internet vandal whose name is Jason Rush. Jason Rush is professional at defamation and a true internet disgrace. Just research his background. He has been doing this stuff for a year to many people. He is not mentally stable. He is unemployed. His wife Monica Rush seems to support him and he lives under miserable conditions in a miserable neighborhood in Seattle. He got a degree in mathematics from Seattle and worked there but he was sacked. He searched for work in Microsoft and did work there for a while until he was also sacked. He is a dangerous and viscous [sic] desperado and it is unfortunate that he is using your blog to spread his poison. Again, please check this for yourself. It is extremely important to be wary of what one reads today, particularly when it comes to scandal and intrigue for which the gutter press is very grateful.
That was addressed to this Ron Smith whom we wrote about in Tongue-in-cheek comments on the Alexandria fiasco. It is not clear why Ahmad Islam is writing to Ron Smith on Erdferkel's blog.
The writer's idiosyncratic voice and wall-of-text paragraph style are the same as one of the primary authors of the E-infinity group screeds. One of his personas is Muhamed Mustafa of the M.S. El Naschie Scientific Homepage. He used to host the famous E-infinity screeds at http://mohamed-elnaschie.blogspot.com/2010/04/e-infinity-communication.html (now a broken link), but when we added him to the E-infinity group membership list, he got nervous and sought to obfuscate his connection by removing the screeds from his blog. They are now hosted instead on E-Infinity - High Energy Communications by a sockpuppet named David. (They can also be read on El Naschie Watch as part of FQXi-395, parts one and two.) Presumably David is the scandal-plagued Prof. Ji-Huan He, since that Naschienal Socialist proposed on Apr. 24, 2010 @ 13:47 GMT re-hosting the screeds on a new blog or journal to be created especially for that purpose.
Ahmad Islam has IP address 184.108.40.206 placing him at Latitude 51.35, Longitude 0.1, in Orpington, UK. That's about 20 miles from El Naschie's house at 3 Towngate, and about 10 miles from his post office, a plausible location for his Internet Service Provider. As the IP lookup tool explains:
Approximate Geographic Location - This is NOT the exact geographical location of the person/organization with the given IP address. However, this should still give you a good idea about the area/region where this person/orgranization are located.
Ahmad Islam is probably writing from El Naschie's house. Zahy has said several times that he thinks El Naschie is personally quite involved in the sockpuppetry, not leaving it all to his acolytes. He may be right.
Erdferkel has written in the comments below
Oh no! Professor El Naschie, the postings are coming from inside your house! GET OUT NOW!
which is a stroke of great wit. I am kicking myself for not having thought of it first. See, on TV Tropes, The Calls Are Coming From Inside The House.
UPDATE. El Naschie is so proud of his Ahmad Islam persona that he has begun spamming the message. It has now appeared on FQXI-395. Here it is in our archive.
