And now back to the present. In an email, Shrink brings to my attention this interesting 12 November 2011 entry in the Wikipedia:Requested articles/Biography/By profession page:
Mohamed El Naschie (requested 2011-11-12) who is suing the journal Nature over allegations that he is a pseudoscientist. German Wikipedia article here. Arabic Wikipedia article here. RationalWiki article here. A critical blog here, with many additional sources here.
Between his law suit against Nature, his sacking by Elsevier from Chaos, Solitons and Fractals, his citation scamming scandal with Ji-Huan He, and his candidacy for the Egyptian presidency, El Naschie has become more famous and more infamous than he used to be, and it seems no longer possible to object to him on the basis of Wikipedia's notability criteria. It helps that there are numerous secondary sources of information about him. And there are other Wikipedia articles, like the Elsevier one, that would benefit by a link to his page.
This surely would be a worthy project for some enterprising Wikipedian among the readers of El Naschie Watch. I'd be happy to help but I'd rather not be the primary author. Note that Wikipedia is a bit prickly about biographies of living persons.
