    No, since they are national providers.  Combase is not.  Your presence
here defending Giwer is an interesting coincidence.


>Is this guilt by association on a grand scale?

    Merely a suggestion that you have some sort of personal connection to
Matt Giwer, whether direct or indirect, and that you are posting from a
very one-sided view of things without bothering to acquaint yourself with
the evidence.

    If Matt did not agree with what you said, he would have called you
paranoid for that remark.

    Threats and pseudothreats are Matt Giwer's department.  If you had any
interest in the evidence, you would know that.

    Why don't you post some of those threats?

    You seem to have no doubt that these threats were genuine, yet you
suggest that Matt Giwer is the victim of forged messages.  Given your
apparent belief that perfect forgeries are common and easy to pull off,
how do you know they weren't forged by Hitlerhuggers seeking to discredit
their opponents? 

    I suppose I should mention that I am still waiting for you to send me
a perfect forged email ostensibly from a host other than your own.  Matt
couldn't do it, perhaps you know how.

    You can verify the above post via DejaNews.

    Or do you claim Hardwire is your legal name?

    Matt Giwer has on several occasions used the issue of "handles" as an
excuse to avoid the substantive issues raised by someone not posting under
a real name.  Of course, he also once suggested that "Michael P. Stein" 
might not be my real name.  I'm in the friggin' phone book.  But Matt
can't be bothered to research anything that can't be found on the Web, it
would seem.  (And sometimes even on the Web - Switchboard has me listed.)

    Notice that Mr. Blackmore, who evades many questions with the plea
that they are not relevant, suddenly objects when someone else fails to
answer an irrelevant question - and claims telepathic powers, that he
knows the real reason for Mike Curtis's method of dealing with the
question.

    This from the man who solemnly declared that the people at Birkenau
were headed for the stairs down from the train platform.  Had he imagined
going as far as the library to look at the picture, he would have seen
that the platform was ground level and had no stairs.

    So from Matt Giwer's perspective Hardwire may be going the extra mile.
Not, however, from mine.

    Prove a negative?  How very strange you are.

    And proof is for mathematicians.

    But you know that.

    As Hardwire himself said recently, perhaps it should be noted that not
once has Matt Giwer denied posting anything found under his name on
DejaNews other than the obvious Marduk posts which clearly showed the
Canadian origin in their headers.  (He has of course repeatedly denied
posting things _before_ the DejaNews citations were produced, but once
they were produced, he did not claim forgery.)

    He's dumb enough to think that your problems must be due to forgery
since no rational person would get themselves booted off more than one
ISP.  Obviously he must also be dumb enough to think that all repeat
offenders were framed since no rational person would get themselves thrown
in jail twice.

    Or maybe he's just dumb enough to think that you're rational just
because you've managed to keep your web site articles more or less
coherent.  (He should take a look at what you post here.)

    I realize that you do not like to deal with such inconvenient things
as evidence when forming your conclusions, but I must point out the
episode in March '96 where Matt filed a complaint about Rack Jite's web
pages and made public noises about suing.  (That is not the only time Matt
has made noises about lawsuits, though the threats all have turned out to
be empty so far.)

    While I am not privy to what was said to Combase, going only by what
was discussed publicly and as best I can remember without searching
DejaNews, Matt's complaint against Rack Jite preceded any complaints to
Combase about Matt Giwer. 

    In other words: thanks for playing, please try again.

    Isn't it funny that the only Matt Giwer on Switchboard and on the
CD-ROM of all listed phone numbers in America is Matt Giwer, Sr. in
Cinncinnati.

    Please prove that Matt's parents were harrassed.  A simple phone call
does not constitute harrassment.

You need to keep practicing.  My advice is to study the examples on
Nizkor; a pint of gin before posting is a great aid.  You'll get there
eventually; I have faith in your abilities.

    There was a movie, Breaker Morant, about one such incident during the
Boer War.  Though I suppose technically you could claim he wasn't on the
winning side, Lt. William Calley (though not his superiors, who were
strongly suspected of complicity) was at least tried by his own side.
There are a couple of Canadians on the Somalian peacekeeping mission who
got into hot water as well; don't know what the state of their prosecution
is. 

    If you want to amend it to say that no _leader_ of a winning side has
been prosecuted for a war crime, that I cannot refute by counterexample
offhand.

    No, it says something about the people establishing some of those
precendents.  The fact that the fellow next to you got away with driving
70mph does not get you out of the speeding ticket for going 68, nor does
it say anything about the validity of the 55 mph speed limit.

    If you were paying as much attention to what you wrote as Jamie and I

[ See: http://www.kaiwan.com/~ihrgreg/misc/definition.html for full text ]

    I have been inspired by Mr. Raven's burst of logorrhea to examine
another aspect of the historical record: "gas chamber" and "gassing."  Mr. 
Raven has long denied that Jews were "gassed," and demanded that someone
produce a picture or plan for a Nazi "gas chamber," which he claims never
existed.  But what, really, do these terms mean?

    It is interesting to note that the OED contains a direct definition of
"gas chamber."  But the quote is far different from what Mr. Raven would
like to you believe the Nazis never had.  "Gaschamber: an apparatus used
in microscopy for studying the action of different gases on structures or
organisms."  Now, it is well-known and (to the best of my knowledge) 
admitted by the IHR that the Nazis did conduct lethal medical experiments
on concentration camp inmates.  One of these experiments was the effect of
low pressure on human beings.  However, the effect of low pressure is
really the effect of the higher internal pressure of the organism,
including that of gases contained in the organism.  Therefore the
experiment involved a chamber for studying the action of gases (contained
within the organism) under low-pressure conditions.  It appears that Mr. 
Raven now admits that the Nazis had a gas chamber in Dachau for use in
their low-pressure experiments. 

    Mr. Raven does not escape if we break the term up into its component
parts.  "Chamber" means a compartment of some sort, especially a room.
Does Mr. Raven seriously expect people to believe that the Nazis did not
have rooms?  And leading scientists, including Nobel prize winners, agree
that air is a gas under normal conditions.  If a "gas chamber" is definied
as a room containing gas, then I just slept in a gas chamber.  Again, it
is clear that the Nazis did have gas chambers.

    Even more confusion adheres to the term "gas."  Mr. Raven has denied
that the Nazis "gassed" Jews.  But the very first verb definition is "to
supply with gas."  It beggars belief to say that not a single Jew was
supplied with gas during the Nazi regime.

    Perhaps what Mr. Raven denies is that the Jews were impregnated with
cholorine in the manufacture of bleaching powder.  If so, he is correct,
but then again, no historian, Jewish or otherwise, has ever claimed that
the Nazis did this - so why is he spending so much time propagandizing on
the issue?

    Now we come to a definition that Mr. Raven might well have in mind:
"To be gassed: to be poisoned by a gas."  However, I was under the
impression that the IHR did not deny the existence of the T-4 program
(there is a signed Hitler order for the euthanasia program), nor that some
of the victims of that program were Jews.

    But of all the definitions of "gas" used as a verb that I see in the
OED, the ones I like the best are: "To indulge in 'gas' or empty talk;  to
vapour, to talk idly or boastfully" and "To deceive or impose upon by
talking 'gas'."  Not only does the IHR vigorously agree that every
explicit mention of a Nazi plan or desire to exterminate the Jews was
precisely the first of these two, but Mr. Raven's sophistic article about
definitions is a prime example of the second definition.

    You are suffering under a huge misunderstanding, then.

    The rule is not that the liar's words are unworthy of discussion.

    The rule is that the liar's words are not worth accepting without
independent verification of references.

    Michael Hoffman II has lied.  I can prove that to courtroom standards. 
He has also drawn conclusions from evidence so unsupported by the ordinary
meaning of the words contained in the documents that it is hard to avoid
the conclusions that he was either self-deluded to the point of mental
illness, or deliberately lying.  However, in the matter of Reszo Kastner,
he brought proper, verifiable documentation to the table.  It said what he
said it said, and I publicly declared he was telling the truth on that
issue.  But if he were to reappear and make a new claim without evidence,
I would demand the evidence and check it.  If he evaded, I think it only
proper to caution people to assign a value to his unsupported claim in the
light of his previous troubles with the truth. 



>Better minds than mine observed long ago that no productive communication

    Excuse me, but how can one have good faith in the word of a person who
deliberately deceives, whether by omission or commission?  I had always
thought that one of the components of dealing in good faith was dealing
honestly.

    And unless you are studying psychology or engaging in some other goal
not related to the content of the conversation, how can you consider
productive a discussion in which one person is attempting not to inform
you, but to deceive you?


>If one party insists on displaying clear and continuous

>then all you get is a heated argument.

    Does not prevarication display clear and continuous scorn not only for
the truth, but for the person being lied to?


>This is not conversation, it is a
>waste of time.  Not only the time spent in it, but time spent in voiding

    Is not trying to extract factual knowledge from someone attempting not
to educate but to deceive you a waste of time?  Are not falsehoods
precisely "dreck" which you should seek to sweep out of your mind?


>Being labeled a "liar", "moron", "nazi","idiot", "neo-nazi",
>and the ubiquitous "denier" and "hater" tends to close a mind quickly
>unless you discount the source, and thus the effort.

    I would agree that some people use the term "liar" too loosely.  As I
have said before, to me a lie is something that is uttered with the
knowledge that it is false, or with good reason to know that it is false.
"Lying by omission" is an attempt to deceive not by uttering a falsehood,
but rather by failing to disclose a material fact which, if revealed,
would be reasonably likely to cause the listener to place a different
weight on the rest of the material, or to reach a completely different
conclusion.


>Yet some Nizkor
>supporters have argued here that this is justified, even necessary!  If
>you present someone with truth and they refuse to accept it, the line

>a moron and should be denounced as such.

    First, a liar is someone who knowingly repeats falsehoods.  Now, some
people are too quick to assume that the writer _knows_ that the thing
being uttered is false.  But if someone is given evidence to the contrary,
and repeats the falsehood in public without at least mentioning the
contrary information, then the person is at the very least lying by
omission from that point on.

    As for a moron, that is of course a judgement.  Reasonable and
intelligent people can disagree about things.  But don't you think that
there are some cases of invalid reasoning that are so wildly nonsensical
and illogical that there is virtually no chance of having a productive
conversation with a person - that either the person will never understand
the point you're trying to make, or the person's conclusions are not
sufficiently trustworthy and you must review the evidence yourself rather
than trusting in the validity of conclusions that the person presents to
you as truths?

    Take for example, Leon Degrelle's argument that the gold teeth could
not have been extracted because it takes fifteen minutes for a dentist to
extract a tooth from a live patient, and it must take _longer_ for an
extraction from a corpse because the corpse is not cooperating.  Now, I
suppose you could say that one should refrain from calling the late
general a moron.  But "moronic" certainly seems to be an apt adjective for
the reasoning presented. 


>It's not only the right of every
>decent person to do this, it is something approaching a duty.

    Yes, I think it is a duty for me to warn you that the landlord you are
about to rent from has a history of neglecting reasonable repairs on the
property.  Would you prefer for me to keep my mouth shut and let you be
stuck with a miserable apartment?

    And I think it is a duty for me to warn you that the auto shop down
the street has a history of doing shoddy and/or unnecessary repairs.
Would you prefer for me to keep my mouth shut and let you be stuck with a
poor-running car and a padded bill?

    Similarly, I think it is a duty for me to warn you that the person at
that website is peddling provable falsehoods and lies by omission, and you
should (metaphorically speaking) look under the hood before buying lemon
facts.  Would you prefer for me to keep my mouth shut and let your mind be
filled by junk? 



>Well, I beg to differ, and strongly.  Such a course is not only
>counterproductive, it's loutish.

    Then I suggest you start picketing the Better Business Bureau for
their loutish behavior in warning people about disreputable businesses. 
In all honesty I see no difference in warning about shady merchants and
shady information sources.  I consider the point about payment to be
irrelevant.

    I am sorry if you find it uncivil of me to point out when Greg Raven
deliberately doctors a quote or gives a blatantly distorted paraphrase in
order to present falsified evidence.  I consider such practices to be
disrespectful to me, uncivil, and off-putting.  Don't you?

    Impossible?  I suggest there are some things you have not considered.

    Ever hear of a zoom lens?

    Ever hear of editing?

    Ever hear of enlargement?

    I think you spoke of a close-up of Suchomel with the map, yes? 
Another way this can be done even without a zoom is if the woman just
stands up and goes close to the map (as if she is also looking closely). 
Suchomel is looking at the map, she can move the bag pretty freely. 

    A close-up of the map without Suchomel could easily be obtained if
Suchomel left the room for a minute to go to the bathroom sometime during
the interview.  Or if Lanzmann himself brought the map to help with the
interview, it could be filmed later and edited into the sequence to allow
the viewer to know what Suchomel was talking about.  I think this kind of
thing is not all that rare.  I will ask a friend of mine who works on
documentary films.

    Well, fine, produce the rubber mask.  Or if "he could have done it" is
good enough to call Lanzmann a fraud, then "they could have done it" is
good enough evidence to prove Nazi gas chambers.

    I have offered a couple of possibilities.  There may be more - it's
been a long time since I've seen the film.

    Put the bag down on a chair or table, of course it will not shake.

    Zoom lens.

    Enlarging the picture.  If the closer distance seems blurrier than the
farther one, this is probably how it was done.

    Shooting from two different places.

    Remember, you don't know how long the interview went on.  I saw
"Shoah"  years ago, but I seem to remember vaguely that there were at
least two separate times that Lanzmann entered the house.  Lanzmann may
have rearranged the order of questions in editing the film. 

    If they spent (for example) the morning shooting from one chair, ate
lunch, then came back in and shot from a different chair for the
afternoon, Lanzmann could take afternoon question-and-answer snips and put
them in between morning question-and-answer snips.  This would make it
look as if the camera was moving between two points during the interview.
As long as the answers are kept with the same questions, this kind of
rearrangement would not distort the meaning.  Lanzmann might have done
this to make it less monotonous in appearance. 

[...]

    So you say this is an actor playing Suchomel?  And you know the
imitation is not perfect?  You have, then, a sample of the real Suchomel's
voice which you have compared with the Lanzmann film?

    As far as I can tell, the sum total of your evidence for any of this
is: "It _could_ have been faked that way."

    Well, yes.  But that never stops Giwer.  He a) makes false claims
about the evidence, or b) makes assertions for which he fails to provide
evidence, or c) just falls into his own "dreck" mode.  I mostly ignore (c) 
and point out the failures in (a) and (b) - along with a pointer to
Giwer's own admission that he lied and his solidly documented history of
lying.  After that, it's up to the lurkers to make up their own minds.  No
problem.

    I guess where we fundamentally disagree is simply on the point at
which one can come to a valid conclusion.  I am, I like to think, very
careful about the standards I use to label something a lie.  However, my
honest opinion is that you often seem to bend over so far backwards to
excuse something someone has said that it comes across as dishonesty, or -
at the very best - moral cowardice.  What I mean by this is that you're
too afraid of being "not nice" to allow yourself to voice an adverse
judgement about someone which is clearly called for by the evidence.

    Sometimes judges have to find people guilty, you know.  A judge who
acquits or gives a light sentence to a clearly-guilty rich person is
liable to be suspected of having accepted a bribe, even if the motivation
was an honestly-felt concern that nobody else could see.  "Yes, the
defendant was caught red-handed killing his rich uncle with an axe, and
his diary showed his plans for carrying out the crime, hiding the body,
and spending the money.  However, there was heavy sunspot activity during
that time period, and we know that magnetic fields _might_ have some
influence on the brain, so I find reasonable doubt and must decide not
guilty by reason of temporary insanity."

    In the same vein, you sometimes find innocent interpretations far
beyond my ability to give benefit of the doubt (and I've been told
sometimes that _I_ go to far).  When one person thinks another has
announced a verdict completely at odds with the evidence, that is viewed
as some form of irrationality or dishonesty.

[ Note: David Thomas was having technical difficulties and asked me to
post this reply for him. ]

The following is in response to Mike Stein's reply to the originating post
for this thread.  This first post (two of them, actually) addressed three
items:

(1)  Why revisionist sites were not anxious to cross-link to Nizkor.
(2)  Some discussion of Nizkor's selective emphasis on people instead of
issues.
(3)  The negative impact of personal attack on attempts to communicate.

By communication, I mean a sustained dialogue with many exchanges.  A
conversation.  In the course of an ordinary conversation in which neither
party has the intent to deceive, there will on a regular basis be
misunderstandings that create inappropriate responses.  Poorly thought out
remarks and mistakes will be made which may or may not be revisited and
revised.  The revisitation may be due to a challenge by the recipient, or the
originator may bring it back up after review of his remarks.  Gradually, with
the scrutiny and effort of both participants, the inappropriate, irrelevant
and erroneous elements are weeded out of the dialogue, resulting in
statements now agreed on by both, and the areas of commonality are clearly
identified, and, to some lesser extent, the same can be said of the areas of
disagreement.  This is what I mean by communication--not swaying someone's
beliefs, but finding out what those beliefs are and then determining which if
any of them are acceptable to you.  Highly arguable material presented as
fact will prolong this.  Seizing on any contradiction, mistake, vagary, or
what have you and calling it a lie will derail the process before it begins.
 You have to give a little, keep going and say, I'm not sure I
understood--are you saying xxx or yyy?  Repeat it, revisit it until you're
sure that the meaning and intent are clear before you even begin to put it
through the quite necessary filter of determining, where possible, if
non-truths have been put forth and if so, were they offered knowingly?  This
is a measure of the good faith extended to you.  If you find it missing, then
you would have to conclude that no valid communication took place and that
you do not have any material with which to gauge common ground.  At this
point, in my mind, one is justified in saying that they don't play games with
cheaters, and remove any further dialogue to one of exchanging factual
information, not opinions.  Evaluating facts is much harder with someone who
demonstrates _clearly_ an intent to deceive, since you have an indication at
least that all their claims now require an independent reference.  Good faith
has left the discussion.

I doubt that we have much disagreement with the preceding.  I believe it
repeats some things I've heard you say before.  My main point is that the
conclusion of bad faith is made far too early in most of the exchanges I have
observed or been party to, and I think that this is because the caster of the
aspersions came into the exchange in bad faith.  "Let us talk," is the claim,
when what is meant is, "Start talking until I catch you in a lie, which won't
take long, and then I'll tear you apart."  Jamie McCarthy once wrote a
rousing little piece on how he'd like to get Bradley Smith in a room with a
camera and it would take only ten minutes or some such to prove the
dishonesty of his positions (I paraphrase here, been a while since I read
that material).  This is NOT good faith.  Suspension of that attitude is
necessary to have any chance at communication.  I think that is hard for some
people, you indicate by your remarks that this is the case for you.  Once
you've been burned, how do you objectively engage that party in conversation
again?  It can be done, I do it regularly.

You start by reminding yourself that few if any humans view themselves or
their beliefs as bad.  Wow.  That guy really believes the shit he repeats.
 Wonder how?  You really want to find out?  Ask him.  Politely, respectfully.
 Hold your venom for later.  If you do this right, the venom won't be there.
 Probe till you're satisfied that you know where he's coming from.  You'll
probably find that at some point, as things continue without attack, insult
and vilification, the other party will relax and begin doing the same thing
with you. If all goes well, it will take the turn of a conversation with a
stranger on a plane--you'll both make statements revealing some deeply
personal things that normally would not have come out.  This is the tentative
beginning of an honest introduction--here, here's part of the real me--does
this make you recoil or can you accept it, maybe even respond positively?
 (Now a zealot reading this and imagining it happening with his nemesis is
already growing nauseous.  Everybody got their problems.)  It's important to
treat exchanges at this (usually private) level with confidence and not turn
them against someone later--IF THE INTENT IS TO COMMUNICATE.  If that is not
the intent, then little of what I say is material to whatever the other
intent is.

Then, after you get to know the person, you discuss nuts and bolts.  This can
be done in hard-ball fashion if you are mature enough to separate the
relationship established from the subject matter, and continue to treat the
other party with the common courtesy and respect that should be shown between
any two humans.  When your discussions are finished, when you get to the
point that you decide your fundamental beliefs are too different to arrive at
any consensus, then gather your information together go off and attack the
positions you disagree with in any way you wish.  Tear it apart, excoriate
details, ridicule justifications--do anything you want, just leave the
personal angle out of it.  And then you'll find that in many cases (not all
by a longshot) you will be able to converse with that person again in the
future.  Call somebody names, justified or not, and the doors close.

The position of some appears to be that all of their opposition are liars to
one degree or another, and that their purpose is to expose those lies when
and where possible.  Well, I can understand that position.  But I don't think
it's true, and I have seen it invoked incorrectly a number of times,
including on myself.  I can't speak for the intent of others, I can only
surmise.  But I damned well can speak for my own intent, and that is to be as
accurate as possible in what I say and to always keep all my positions open
and receptive to valid input which may modify them, even to the point of
total reversal if that is where the facts lead.  A lot of people who oppose
my opinions will read this and say to themselves, "Liar!"  That's the main
point I've tried to address.

>>If one party insists on displaying clear and continuous
>>scorn not only for the other person's ideas, but for the person himself,
>>then all you get is a heated argument.
>
>    Does not prevarication display clear and continuous scorn not only for
>the truth, but for the person being lied to?

If your remark is addressed to justifying the scorn, which it appears to be,
then I make the following observations.

I referred to scorn shown coming into the conversation, right from the get
go.  Contempt, whether the provocation is real or not, insures from the
beginning that no fruitful exchange will take place.  If this can be
realized, the obvious next question is why the hell make the attempt?  I
can't see any valid reason other than to engage in ridicule with a concurrent
attempt to justify same.

If you are saying that scorn justifies scorn, I cannot agree within the
context of effective communication.  If you're really trying, you try first
to get past the scorn.  If you can't do that, then you have two choices.
 Bark back at the dog, or get on to more productive things.  I will inject
again the note that the prejudgement of prevarication is present to a
palpable degree on this forum and in Nizkor.  It is so pervasive as to have
become the nexus of many areas.

>I would agree that some people use the term "liar" too loosely.

Exactly.  Mark this one down as "common ground."

I don't agree that it takes a lie to get that label there, but let us return
to my original point.  Why revisionist sites don't rush to cross-link to
Nizkor.  They don't do it because it rapidly degenerates into a mud-slinging
contest.  The effects of this are obvious and were covered at length above
and in my first posts. Neither the truth or falsity of the allegations nor
justifications for making them publicly in a chain ostensibly established for
communication purposes modifies their negative impact on valid communication.
 So the reason for making a link reduces to receiving insults or engaging in
an exchange of same.  Why bother?  End of point.

    Check your scale of measurement!  The Topf patent and operating
instructions posted here by Mark Van Alstine and Danny Keren mention
operating temperatures of at least 800 degrees - CELSIUS. That translates
to 1472 degrees Fahrenheit, virtually identical to the 1500 F mentioned
above.  The operating instructions warn against letting the temperature go
above 1100 Celsius, which translates to 2012 F.  That's more than the 1900
F cited above.

    That would only be true if something were contained in "the rest" 
which alters the interpretation of the ones offered in evidence.  A
corporate memo ordering illegal dumping of toxic waste is not
reinterpreted in the light of a memo asking for a fresh supply of pencils
to be ordered.  Try telling a judge that the jury must be shown every
corporate scribbling back to the dawn of time (including the pencil memo)
before retiring to deliberate - see what happens.

    You are of course welcome to produce other posts which mitigate the
ones offered in evidence against Mr. Giwer.  They're all on Nizkor and
DejaNews; by all means search away.  If you can't find them - and I'm
quite sure you can't - then you're raising more than a bit of a red
herring here, aren't you?

    Well, Fergus, I'm sorry to slay your theory with an ugly fact, but
Matt Giwer is by your standards another one of those mentally puny people. 
While he was still at Combase, the ISP he was using when he first appeared
here, he got the web pages belonging to "Rack Jite" removed from Volant
Turnpike, claiming they were libelous.  No judicial determination was made
of that, and they were certainly no more libelous than what Matt utters on
a regular basis.  Furthermore, that happened in March of this year.  As
far as I know, the first complaints to Combase about Giwer occurred in
April after he posted the text of the Wannsee Protocols a dozen times in
an eight day period.

    The complaints to Mr. Giwer's ISPs were caused by his sending of
unsolicited email to the entire user base of Internet Direct, his posting
identical text to the newsgroup tens of times within the same week, his
mailing (twice) a five-megabyte file to Ken McVay after Mr. McVay had
specifically requested no email, and his forging the names and email
addresses of other real people to his articles.

    I regard those complaints as legitimate.  What would you do if I
lobbed a five megabyte file into your mailbox - twice?

    Again, he whined to Volant Turnpike about Rack Jite and got him kicked
off there before anyone got him kicked off Combase or even (as far as has 
been discussed here) before anyone complained to Combase.

    Perhaps you should arm yourself with some facts before shooting off
your mouth.  I do however realize that this is contrary to the conventions
of Usenet.

    No, you "silly stupid twit," they were detected because of the style

Just unzip to a directory and browse index.htm.

        It is agreed this is beyond the ability of so many holohuggers but
give it a shot, learn something.



    There was no misspelling of Gordon McFee's name or email address, and
of course no signature file.

    Marduk no longer posts from idirect.com, and I have always assumed he
was bounced due to your complaints to them about his forgeries and sending
abusive email after being asked to stop.  You complained to them, and I
agree that you were justified in those complaints.  I privately told
Marduk I thought he should stop it - though of course he didn't listen. 

    Well, guess what.  You did the same two things he did (not to mention
spamming by posting identical text tens of times in a short time period),
and people complained about you just as you complained about Marduk.

    As for forgery and mailbombing, I happen to feel that it's up to the
victim to complain to the ISP, so I simply followed nearly every forgery I
saw - both yours and Marduk's - with something to alert people to the
forgery.  (Unless, of course, Rich Graves or someone else had already beat
me to it.)  If you want to complain that some other people whose names you
did not forge were hypocritical in complaining to your ISP when they
failed to complain to Idirect and Netcom about Marduk's, that is a fair
and honest criticism.  However, it does not excuse either your own
forgeries or your own hypocrisy in claiming you did nothing which
justified a complaint.

    I will also say in all fairness I have yet to hear of anything that
you did while a gate.net customer that I would consider grounds for
complaint to that ISP, or for termination of service.  I would appreciate
it if anyone could tell me what happened.  But for the other incidents,
since you complained about Marduk back in March, you are now being
hypocritical and dishonest in pretending there is no grounds for complaint
about what you did in the article I quoted above, or your two
five-megabyte emails to Ken McVay. 

    But you know that.

    That is the thesis of Arno Mayer.  However, he seemed to ignore a lot
of inconvenient evidence which did not agree with his theory.

    That's not true, Tommy.  But it _would_ be true to say that there is
nothing which _conclusively proves_ the existence of a master plan, at
least before the start of the war.  There is some evidence for a master
plan, but also some evidence against it.

    Holocaust historians have for a very long time been divided into two
camps, the "intentionalists" (who believe Hitler had an intention to kill
all the Jews as soon as he could get away with it) and the
"functionalists" who believe that the Nazis started killing Jews as a
reaction to circumstances and a progressive.

    Now we come to the difference between a master plan that has all the
details worked out, and a plan which definitely intends a result, but is
still looking for the way to get that result.  I don't know of anybody who
claims that Hitler planned, all the way back in 1933 or even 1939, to
build a camp at Treblinka which would use carbon monoxide and another camp
at Oswiecim which would use cyanide to kill Jews.  That's a strawman.  The
two scenarios which are seriously discussed by historians are: 

    1) Hitler was consciously looking for a way to kill Jews as soon
       as they could figure out the technical means and could do it
       without too many people catching on and stopping them.

    2) Hitler just wanted to get the Jews out of Europe, and he would
       have been very happy to send them all to Madagascar or Israel.
       Unfortunately it turned out that they only way they could get
       the Jews out of Europe was to kill them.  So that's what they
       decided to do.


    That is the very real and very legitimate argument between historians. 
The first group would be the people talking about a "master plan."  But I
think both groups agree they didn't really know for sure which method of
killing would be best, so they tried different things and changed when
they found a better way.

    It's not that they didn't know what the others were doing, it was that

    I don't deny that people talked about a master plan.  However, I deny
that they meant that every technical detail was spelled out in advance.
You're arguing a strawman.

    I would suggest that a very strict definition of lying applies to
Matt's work.  When he says something one week and denies saying that thing
the very next week, and a neutral archive (DejaNews) confirms he said the
thing he later denied, what would you call it?  Early-onset Alzheimer's?

    Look on Nizkor under "encouragements."  Matt Giwer coupled a demand
for destruction of data on Nizkor with a warning that "unspecified
penalties may apply."  The post may be verified on DejaNews.  


>Harrassment. 
>In America, is one uncalled for e-mail to you harrassment?

    That would appear to be Mr. Giwer's view.  Marduk sent an uncalled-for
email to Mr. Giwer's son, and Mr. Giwer called it harrassment.

    That was not true in all cases.  He forged a post from Gordon McFee
with neither any misspelling of the header nor the signature file.  While
the style was the same as his usual, it does not prevent DejaNews from
attributing it to Gordon McFee, nor newcomers from erroneously emailing
Gordon to flame him for the work of Giwer.

    How so?  Reason cannot _alone_ determine all matters of fact.  If I
were to tell you that years ago, Ernst molested a small child, how would
reason _alone_ - unaided by evidence - prove the truth of Ernst's
innocence?

    Not quite true.  Ernst has been the target of attacks, and it would be
prudent to avoid making his location public knowledge.  I believe David
Irving's recent series of lectures were held in locations not given out in
advance.  Do you and Ernst think David Irving was doing something sleazy
at those lectures, that he had something to hide? 

    I respect Ernst's decision.  But neither would I condemn a decision to
be discreet based on considerations of personal safety.  Ken has received
messages from people who do not sound like they have his best interests at
heart.  While he has not yet been the target of physical violence, who
knows what would have happened had his location been as well-known as
Ernst's?

    One more group: people who HATE having to fill out change-of-address

I've moved twice since coming to this area (both times to nicer homes,
thanks), but I've had the same mailing address the entire nine years.
Even my mother sends letters to the box rather than the house.

    I guess you don't really understand in full what free speech means. 
It includes the right to keep silent, and the right not to listen.

    For my own part, I wouldn't have made the same decision Ken did.  I've
had dinner with Robert Faurisson and Ross Vicksell of CODOH.  If you're
ever in the DC area, I will be happy to meet with you if my schedule
permits.  (Let me know as far in advance as possible.)

    But Ken has his own opinions on the matter, and he's exercised his own
right of free expression.  Or shall I ask what shadowy handlers keep you
>from  speaking out in alt.revisionism?  If you can make your own decisions

    Not even Matt is stupid enough to make a threat that he couldn't try 
to weasel out of in just that way.

    However, you are failing to consider the fact that he made some
demands that could not possibly be enforced by legal process.  If he had
demanded only removal of his archived articles, that could be as you
describe.  But he demanded removal of EVERY reference to him, even oblique
references and secondary quotations.  By the ordinary and reasonable
interpretation of those words, he also demanded removal not only of
quotations of his words in our own posts which would be permitted under
"fair use" rules, but even completely original text mentioning him in
factual terms.  This is a clear demand for suppression of the free speech
rights of others, something he could not possibly enforce by any legal
penalties.

    Furthermore, the following exchange took place in followups:

        You are rather insane to read what is not there.



    He is correct that the explicit threat is not there.  Unfortunately
for Matt, it does not matter whether he made an overt threat, nor whether
he had any real intention of doing anything if his demands were not met. 
Even if it is pure bluff, if a conscious attempt is made to obtain some
goal or benefit by acting in a manner calculated to create a fear of
extralegal attack in a reasonable person, the elements of the crime are
present.

    The key issue is whether a reasonable person might perceive such a
threat.  Matt's gun talk and occasional incoherent rants add credibility
to the idea that he might indeed be nuts enough to go after Ken
personally, not just launch an electronic attack on the computer system.

    But you clearly did not understand much of it.  For example, how the
"will be sterilized" was a proposed law, not something which had been made
into law.  Remember that bills in Congress contain "shall be" wording from
the start, but they are not law until they are passed and accepted by the
President (or a veto overridden).

    False.  I had no idea what point you thought you were making by
posting it over and over and over.  So how could I be said to agree with
an unstated point?

    False.  The part about laborers succumbing along the way shows intent
that they die, and die prematurely.  And what benign explanation can you
find for the last bit which says the survivors must be treated
appropriately lest they become the germ cell for a new outbreak?  They
have just said they expect to work many to death.  And suddenly they will
care about the ones who are not cooperative enough to die of ill
treatment?

    Whether you agree with the argument or not, it _was_ explicitly
pointed out - contrary to your claim that people refused to do so.

    I'm still waiting for you to discuss things honestly.

    Like the discussion of the "will be" language in the Wannsee Protocol,
where I used the very legitimate example of a bill in Congress, and you
dishonestly cut that text out of my reply when responding. 

    Want to get back to the cremation discussion?  The one where you
claimed to be able to compute the amount of energy needed to boil off the
water, but refused to produce your computations?  The one where you denied
that a gram of fat had an energy value of 9 kilocalories, which anyone can
verify is true with a trip to the grocery store?  If you claim scientific
literacy, you should know that a calorie on a food package is a
kilocalorie to a physicist.

    Who appointed you the supreme judge of what is and isn't the topic
here?  Did you newgrp this conference?

    And how many thousands of your posts contained mere assertion, without
any references?  Would you like to return to the cremation discussion?

    About what?  About the fact that you sent him email, for instance? 
Yes, I believe him.

    Do you know why I believe him?  Because you have emailed me as well.
Twice.  (Both happened a few months ago.)

    Now, with your emails to me, both times it was _absolutely_ clear you
made a mistake and hit your email button in Free Agent when you intended
to hit the followup button. 

    So it would not be surprising if there were a few times you had the
same accident with Yale - except that the text you sent was not as clearly
an accident as it was with me.  But when it happens, you rant and rave and
claim he is lying, that you never sent him any email. 

    Your ISP looks at their sendmail logs and confirms you did send the
email.  That is their physical evidence. 

    They conclude from the physical evidence that you are a deliberately
harrassing Yale after being told to stop.  And then lying about it.  And
the next thing you know, you are forced to find a new ISP. 

    It would not surprise me greatly if this is what got you tossed from
Cybergate.  I never saw you do anything in public which deserved that
treatment, but of course I would not know about email. 

    And it is all because you are too pigheaded to admit that in the
thousand posts you make each month, there might be one or two or three
times you could have slipped a quarter inch with your mouse.

    You call Yale a jew liar instead.  And get bounced from ISP to ISP for
(among other things) sending unwanted email after being told to stop.

    What do you think you gain from this?

    Notice how in two posts the request changed from "extermination" - no
mention of methods or numbers - to "extermination in the context of
gassing" - to gassing _plus_ shooting _plus_ the number to be shot _plus_
whatever other unspecified details which may be contained in "remotely
like what is claimed to have happened."

    It is certainly not honest discussion to pretend that you asked
someone to show how the Wannsee document contains proof of a plan or
policy of _gassing_ and _shooting_ and _numbers_ and other unspecified
details, when your original request was for how the Wannsee document
contains proof of a plan or policy of _extermination_, period, without any
mention of the means and numbers to be killed by those means. 

    If you cannot even be honest about what you asked for, I see no point
in going on with this charade.

    I will admit that it is true that you did indeed post what you posted
before - including the bait-and-switch of from "extermination" to
"gassing" in the middle of the discussion. 

    We have not progressed one iota.  When you are given what you asked
for, you pretend you really asked for something else or something more, or
start playing semantic games.

    Just as Alec Grynspan said.  You haven't changed, nor did I really
expect you to.

    When you are ready to discuss things honestly, which includes not
pretending you were talking about something different when you get into
trouble with the original topic, let me know.

Refer to DejaNews for the full context.  The part about tens of thousands
is true, by the way; just adding up the DejaNews entries for his Combase

    A facsimile of Reich justice minister Gu"rtner's copy of the initial

Gu"rtner's own handwritten note at the bottom, may be seen opposite the
title page of Friedlander, Henry: "The Origins of Nazi Genocide: From
Euthanasia to the Final Solution" [University of North Carolina Press,
1995].

    Fine by me.  If you tell someone to stay out of your mailbox, and they
don't listen, you have good cause to complain to the ISP of the person
responsible for sending you the unwanted emails.  I think you do need to
ask the person directly in email first, though - I don't think it's fair
to hold someone responsible for reading it in a post unless they are
bouncing your emails unread. 

    I must confess little surprised, though.  That didn't _quite_ strike
me as Marduk's style.

    Here I disagree.  It fits the dictionary definition of forgery.  A
forgery need not be perfect to be a forgery.  Where I believe it fails the
legal definition is that the person doing the forging was not personally
trying to defraud you of money by it.

    He made a fraudulent imitation of a thing - to wit, your signature -
onto the document.  Again, the dictionary says nothing about a quality
standard.  For legal purposes, though, he must have criminal intent.  In a
similar vein, I own rental property.  If my tenant forgets to sign the
rent check, I am pretty sure I could forge his signature onto the document
in the dictionary sense without being guilty of forgery in the criminal
sense.  I am entitled to that money; I did not seek to obtain anything to
which I was not entitled.  Let me take a check out of his checkbook when
I'm over at the house to do some work, and write it to obtain money to
which I am _not_ entitled, and the story is very different.

    Your denying it is so does not make it not so.  I think your analogy
is proper for the case of your own alteration of Sara's handle.  But it is
not proper for what Mr. Giwer did.  She gives the analogy below.

    Um, no, Sara.  Unless you want to say that there is no objective

as a lie, you are wrong.

    No, you have got this wrong because you completely misinterpreted her
words.  She did not say she mailbombed, which Mr. Giwer has done.  She did
not say that she posted ten to twenty copies of identical original text to
the newsgroup in an eight-day period, as Mr. Giwer has done.  She did not
say that she sent email to people after they had asked her not to send
email, which Mr. Giwer has done.  What she clearly meant was that if
people ganged up on her to file specious complaints, her ISP would stand
by her.  She says only that nothing she has actually done is a violation
of her user agreement.  Remember, Hardwire asserted that an ISP would dump
someone _simply_ because of numerous complaints, _regardless_ of merit,
and given that context it's quite clear to me that Sara is merely saying
her ISP would not do that.

    I think it is reasonable to ask on what basis you call his knowledge

    Mr. Giwer has had quite a string of ISPs.  Another Worldnet user
posted the Worldnet agreement, and Mr. Giwer did seem to be in violation.
On the other hand, I myself have no idea of what he did that could have
violated the Cybergate agreement.

    I think it's a reasonable logical inference.  Would you bother to give
a special warning to someone not to do something they were not doing nor
showing any tendency to do?  I wouldn't.

    How much would it cost, and what purpose would it serve to search for
all of them?  (I will not even get into whether that number is correct; it

    One almost gets the impression that Mr. Giwer hasn't been looking.

    There is some more of the physical evidence that Mr. Giwer swore did
not exist.  I invite discussion of why this evidence does not support a
plan or policy of extermination.

    How so?  Reason cannot _alone_ determine all matters of fact.  If I
were to tell you that years ago, Ernst molested a small child, how would
reason _alone_ - unaided by evidence - prove the truth of Ernst's
innocence?

    Ah, those shadowy "handlers."  Ain't paranoia grand?  Hate to

    Not quite true.  Ernst has been the target of attacks, and it would be
prudent to avoid making his location public knowledge.  I believe David
Irving's recent series of lectures were held in locations not given out in
advance.  Do you and Ernst think David Irving was doing something sleazy
at those lectures, that he had something to hide? 

    I respect Ernst's decision.  But neither would I condemn a decision to
be discreet based on considerations of personal safety.  Ken has received
messages from people who do not sound like they have his best interests at
heart.  While he has not yet been the target of physical violence, who
knows what would have happened had his location been as well-known as
Ernst's?


>In my opinion and experience, only cowards, liars, con-men and crooks  hide

    One more group: people who HATE having to fill out change-of-address
cards.  I started renting a PO Box back in college for that very reason. 
I've moved twice since coming to this area (both times to nicer homes,
thanks), but I've had the same mailing address the entire nine years.
Even my mother sends letters to the box rather than the house.

    The same thing Ernst has to fear.  There are anti-racist crazies, and
there are racist crazies.

    I guess you don't really understand in full what free speech means. 
It includes the right to keep silent, and the right not to listen.

    For my own part, I wouldn't have made the same decision Ken did.  I've
had dinner with Robert Faurisson and Ross Vicksell of CODOH.  If you're
ever in the DC area, I will be happy to meet with you if my schedule
permits.  (Let me know as far in advance as possible.)

    But Ken has his own opinions on the matter, and he's exercised his own

    All perfectly good questions, and I will answer them after giving
other people time to post their responses.  However, other revisionists I
have run into have seldom asked those questions in similar situations; for
the most part they have simply declared that the testimony was coerced if
a confession, or a lie if by a survivor.

    This will tell you if there were dead people with bullet holes.  But
none of this will tell you if the "dramatic" part of the incident - the
baby crawling and being picked up by the leg - actually happened.  You're
almost certainly not going to get fingerprints off the leg.  The only
physical evidence for that sort of thing is going to be a photo, movie, or
video.  And murderers usually don't perform on camera.  Remember the
Lipstadt quote?  This too looks like a case where reason ALONE won't tell
you the truth.

    This is a very bizarre question.  What makes you think the infant must
have seen where the mother fell?  If it did not know, the best it could do
in seeking its mother would be to crawl in her last known direction, which
might be away from the pit.  If the infant had no memory of mother's last
known position, it would be a random direction, unless it was old enough
to have some sense (whether accurate or not) of the direction in which
"home" was.  If that random or quasi-random direction was coincidentally
away from the pit, the scene would be as described without violating any
of your notions of how infants behave.

    You assume things not at all present in the text and fail to consider
things that should be obvious as reasonable possibilities.

    Your predictions and assertions about potential future policies in the

    Once again your observations and assertions about moral philosophy and
politics are off-topic by your own admission not only because they are
assertions, but because they are clearly separate topics which have their
own newsgroups.  Please stay on topic for this newsgroup. 

    Mr. Blackmore and I were discussing evidence for the historicity of
the euthanasia program.  Do you agree that the hand-signed Hitler order is
valid physical evidence for the existence of a euthanasia program under
the Nazi regime, or is there some revision of the accepted history which
should be discussed?  If so, let us discuss it.  If not, please do not try
to sidetrack the discussion onto matters outside the topic of this
newsgroup.

    Your cooperation is appreciated.

    I remember seeing at least one public post which appears to admit that
he really is behind the calls.  But it is interesting that you do not
allow for the possbility that he is doing just what you say you do,
feeding your paranoia (in this case, by taking advantage of something
someone else is doing).

    I would have expected either some original insulting comments or a
more concerted mailbomb attack (i.e., either a much bigger mailbomb or
many more than the ten messages Hardwire said he had to delete).  Cc's of
posts seems rather wishy-washy somehow.  But I suppose it's possible he
would do it specifically to twit Hardwire on the "no Cc:" request.

    In other words, you have no idea what was said.  You could have gone
to DejaNews and seen what was said by searching for the keywords "pilot,"
"ground," and "Mustang."  However, you announced a conclusion without even
looking at the data.

    As suspected, you are not a scientist.

    I wrote imprecisely.  They were not _publicized_ in advance.  The
advertising gave contact information rather than a location.  If you
wanted to attend, you had to contact the sponsors who then got back to you
later with the location.

    I can confirm that there appear to be two editions of the book.  A few
days ago I was at the Holocaust Museum library and happened to leaf
through the book.  I did notice that there was a second copy on the shelf
with a different binding and smaller size.  If you give the page number I
will be happy to see which edition has it and which doesn't the next time
I am there.

    Remember, according to revisionist theory, all the Nazis were trying
to do was resettle the Jews in Russia, not kill them.  So where does the
speaker get off using words like "destruction?" 

    I guess you would claim that even if Goebbels was writing accurately,
all it proves is that this Fuehrer fellow - whoever he was - had no idea
what official Nazi policy towards the Jews was.  I mean, it's not like
Goebbels heard this bit about destruction from anyone who was of any real
importance or had any knowledge of what official government policy might
be....

    Scientific method, not scientific theory.  And would you please
provide evidence for your assertion that the disciplines _as a whole_ do
not follow the part of scientific method described above?  Remember, it is
not the same thing to give anecdotal evidence that some individual
economists or political scientists don't behave in this way.

    One key area where the above sciences fail to compare with hard
science is in the area of experimental reproducibility.

    How so?  I am genuinely interested in hearing just what language you
take as being hateful.

    I compared methodologies.  That's all.  Not once did I call anyone an
antisemite, Nazi, evil, immoral, or a four-letter word.  Not once did I
call for censorship or violence.  So where is the hate?  I certainly
intended none.

    Instead of just grandly asserting this, why don't you post some REAL
FACTS here, as someone whose name escapes me put it recently?

    Let me just run this one up the flagpole and see if anyone salutes.
Do you think it might be possible that if the Nazis had allowed the
emigrants to keep their property, that

    a) More people would have left voluntarily, and

    b) Other countries would have been more willing to take them?

    How, praytell, could something that happened in 1945 influence the
Nazis in 1939 to cause them to adopt a tit-for-tat policy six years before
the "tit" ever occurred?  I am REALLY interested in the answer to THAT
one.

    Why do you suppose that Himmler wrote "Jews executed" and not

not know the difference between the two words?  Or is it that you do not
know the difference between the two words?

    Please define "real facts," person who suggests but offers NO evidence

you even know where the writing appears on the page - at the end, or in
the middle?)


>Might ruin your game plan but thems the breaks.

    Why not offer some real facts of your own.  If you think a document is
forged, like the inconvenient parts of the Goebbels diary, provide the
evidence - the REAL FACTS - not just your empty keyboard flapping. 

    Might ruin your game plan, but thems the breaks.

    Matt, if you had this level of reading comprehension when you were in
college you must have paid someone to do your school work.  The following
is from the USHMM website.



Pass Information: ONLY the Permanent Exhibition requires a timed entry
pass to begin the self-guided tour of the Museum's primary exhibition.
Passes are FREE and are not required for the Museum's other exhibitions,
memorials, resources and facilities.



    Now, what part of "Passes are FREE" don't you understand? 

    There is a charge ONLY if you use PROTIX rather than going to the
museum itself.  But that fee is not charged by the museum.  It is
collected by PROTIX for their services, the same as they do for a
basketball or concert ticket when you don't feel like standing in line at
the box office.  The museum gives the tickets away for free.

    Repair thee to a remedial reading class.

    I thought we were talking about whether the Wannsee protocol contained
proof of a policy of extermination.  Not of how many, or how, just the
policy.

    Just to start with, you forgot the Soviet POWs who simply froze or
starved to death due to wilful neglect of their needs.  They are the
largest part of the non-Jewish total.  And you still have not figured out
that a million Jews in Auschwitz plus a million Jews by the EG plus
approximately 2 million in the Reinhard camps leaves at most two million
to account for in other locations by other means including freezing to
death as Soviet POWs (in which case I would agree that they were
double-counted, once as Jews and once as non-Jewish Soviets), or entirely
natural causes.  And who said they all had to be in eastern europe?

    I have said before that the six million figure is not only rounded up,
it is an oversimplification.  Some of those people would have been killed
if the Nazis started a war but had no special anti-Jewish program.  The
real test is what a statistician would call excess deaths.

    That's why Hilberg's five million figure for Jewish victims is much
better for this discussion.  But that leaves only a million unaccounted
for, in miscellaneous places such as Chelmno, Majdanek, Dachau, Belsen,
Buchenwald, along the roadside on the winter retreat from Auschwitz (they
would be counted as part of the Auschwitz dead even though they did not
die within the boundaries of Auschwitz), etc.

    But that is not yet the specific topic, though we may later agree to
make that the topic since it is part of the larger discussion.  Would you
agree we cannot discuss everything at once, and must start somewhere in
order to make any sense of matters?  So I would like to continue with the
Wannsee Protocol and what it does or doesn't prove, if you don't mind.  Or
if you explicitly declare that you have no further interest in discussing
the Wannsee Protocol, then we can take up statistics or cremation or
whatever else you like.  But once you start something, stick to it until
and unless we come to agreement or you explicitly state you have nothing
more to introduce by way of evidence or argument. Don't unilaterally
change topics without notice.  Do you have any problem with this?

    It is a fact that you first asked about how the Wannsee document
proved _extermination_.  It is a fact that you then started saying that it
does not prove _gassing_ and _shooting_ and numbers shot (which I agree it
does not).  It is a fact that you wandered away from the discussion of
_extermination_ proof without either agreeing with my point or offering a
counter-argument.  And it is a fact that you do that kind of thing often.

    How can facts be personal attack?

    And what does any of this have to do with your reasons for posting the
Wannsee document twelve times in eight days?


>	It is not honest to [snip] everything that I posted which you are
>failing to answer below.

    As I have already said, it is not a question of honesty, it is a
question of uselessness. I see no purpose in answering question A if you
will then reply, "But you didn't answer question B!"  That response is
entirely true and entirely irrelevant.  I will agree to answer if you will
agree not to change the subject.  Do you agree that "extermination" and
"gassing" are different subjects?

    And in response to that alleged volunteering, you then asked _how_ it
could be legitimately interpeted as proof.

    But you failed above to state proof of WHAT?  Extermination or
gassing? It makes a difference.  And since you have said that mere
assertion is off topic, I must request that you provide an exact quote
with proper references.

    I can only go by what you write.  If you write that you wanted to be
shown how the Wannsee Protocol provides proof of extermination, how am I
to know that when you use the word "extermination" you really mean
"gassing?"


>	This is OFF TOPIC.  ONLY the validity of the Wannsee Protocol is on
>topic.   Lets us get to it.

    If by "validity" you mean is it a forgery or not, then you have just
changed the topic again.

    Make up your mind what you want to discuss in relation to the Wannsee
protocol.  Extermination?  Gassing?  Shooting?  Numbers?  Authenticity? 
Sterilization?  Then stick to the topic until one of us agrees with the
other, or one of us explicitly states that there is no more to say
but we still disagree.  THEN we can move to another topic.

    Again, do you have a problem with this?

    Actually, nobody yet has posted the _true_ original quote, and I think
it would be a very good thing if someone could dig it up.

    Remember, the ORIGINAL quote would have been in GERMAN.  And that
could make a big difference.  For example, if the word used was
"Treibstoff," according to my German dictionary it has the definition
"(motor) fuel, (rocket) fuel, propellant."  The parentheses suggest
someone might translate it simply as "fuel" - but in the original it
almost certainly cannot not mean "wood" even though in the English
translation wood _seems_ to be a real possibility. 

    Does anyone have access to the German text?

    Say, Kurt, why don't you and your buddy Brian Smith sit down in a
chair together and tell us what you think Sam is really saying above using
your own words?  I'd also kind of like to know which of the above

    Matt said much the same thing.  However, when I pointed out that his
father's phone number and address were public information, and suggested
that I might post them under the same principle, his reaction was not
exactly "That is OK under the rule I just stated."  To see it, do a query
on DejaNews filtered on alt.revisionism for the quoted phrase "last thing
you ever."  Look for the article Matt posted on 7/23; I encourage you to
read my reply as well.

    Sure, the information Matt posted was public (and incorrect), but it
was not something most people knew how to get.  It had the appearance of
being posted simply to encourage people to conduct a harrassment campaign
against Ken (though not explicitly stated, of course), or at the very
least to increase the likelihood that it would happen, since people would
be handed the means to do it which they would not ordinarily have been
able to find on their own. 

    Marduk has posted forgeries with Matt's name and email address on
them; they are identifiable as forgeries because of the NNTP-Posting-Host
and Path: lines.  I know how Marduk (or anyone else, for that matter) can
do absolutely perfect forgeries with correct posting host and path lines.
That is publicly available information.

    Now, if I do post it, you know as well as I do that there is an
excellent chance it will be misused.  Hell, it's damn near certain.  Do
you really think that I bear no ethical responsibility if I publish the
instructions?  Are my hands clean simply because I myself never misused or
explicitly advocated the misuse of the knowledge?

    Matt was mailbombed on one occasion using a method that made it
impossible to determine who was behind it.  According to what he posted
here, he claimed it must have been done by someone with root access at the
site from which the mail originated.  He was wrong.  I know how anyone
with access to the 'net could pull the same trick, and again that
information is right out in the open, available to anyone who knows how
and where to look.

    Do you really think there is no ethical issue in my announcing here
how someone can mailbomb Giwer (or you, for that matter)  without fear of
being caught?  Would you really hold me blameless if I did publish and
someone then turned that weapon against you? 

    In other words, yes, it's the posting of public information - but I
wouldn't diminish the ethical considerations with the adverb "simply."


>After all, Matt's had his share of harassment at
>the hands of the "holohugger" nustos... quid pro quo.

    This reminds me of the joke about the mother who brought her boy into
class the first day and said to the teacher, "Now, Percy is a very
sensitive child.  So if he misbehaves, just hit the boy next to him.  That
will scare Percy quite enough!" 

    Point being, of course, that Matt has been less than perfectly
discriminate in his retaliation.

    Even if we ignore the possibility that the infant was carried to the
pit by big sister because Mom went out for a quart of milk, when the
shooting starts, Mom is hit and drops the baby.  How is it guaranteed that
the baby sees what has happened to Mom in the confusion?

    And of course it is a scientific law that when hit by a bullet the
mother cannot possibly drop the baby in the midst of the crowd around the
pit.

    Such as big sister having charge of the baby.  Such as Mom dropping
the baby when hit by the first bullet.

    As for the rest, you will find out in due time.

    The testimony was posted without comment.  On what basis do you claim
it was used as evidence of a claim of "evil?"  As someone or other is fond

    How was there an implicit assertion when the testimony was posted
without comment?  Once again you are fantasizing meanings which cannot be
found in the post.

    I am not interested in discussing _here_ whether euthanasia is good or
evil.  If I wanted to do that, I would go to talk.philosophy.misc, since
that is the proper newsgroup for such a discussion.

    I have no idea why Dr. Keren posted that testimony; unlike you I do
not claim mindreading abilities.  However, the euthanasia program is
evidence about Hitler in one respect.  It is evidence of the willingness
of Hitler (and his advisors) to use active killing as a way of getting rid
of people the state regarded as useless.  Assuming you agree, we can then
see if there is anything interesting in the relationship between this fact
and other facts or theories.

    You have my permission to give me a verbal bonk me over the head if I
go in that direction.  But please wait until I do it rather than assuming
I am going to do it.  Otherwise, _you_ will be the one wasting time here,
since _you_ will have brought the subject into the discussion.

    Now, here is where _I_ want to go with it.  We have established that
the Nazi regime accepted in principle the idea that it was acceptable to
kill people considered of no value.  This is something to take into
consideration when evaluating "revisionist"  claims that the Nazis were
only interested in deporting Jews who were not and never would be capable
of work.  Intending to kill mental patients and cripples while planning to
keep alive elderly Jews seems a bit inconsistent, does it not? 

    Furthermore, there is a testimony that in order to carry out this
policy of killing, they used gas chambers.  Now, the physical evidence
itself does not mention methods, but at least the testimony has some
grounding in physical evidence.  There is other evidence to corroborate
that there was a euthanasia program.  I'll look around for some other
physical evidence of gas chambers specifically for the euthanasia program,
but while I'm doing that, perhaps you would like to tell me if you have
any contrary evidence that some other killing method was actually used for
this euthanasia program. 

    I will rush to say that there is an immense amount more to consider. 
But at least we have something that even Matt Giwer agrees is physical
evidence, and which reveals a certain inconsistency between a Nazi policy
we accept as part of the historical record, and what "revisionists" claim
was Nazi policy towards the Jews who would have been called "useless
eaters." 

    I know that in the past you have made much of inconsistencies, so I
thought I'd point one out to you to see what you make of it.  Now, if you
wish to argue that there is no inconsistency of course you are invited to
make your case.

    I discussed this with Al Baron a while back.  Walendy does not give
enough consideration to the possibility of poor reproduction and printing. 
I found one picture in Walendy - a copy of the infamous pit burning photo
taken by the resistance at Birkenau - which had some serious differences
with the book he claimed to have got it from.  So by his own rules of
evidence we must conclude that Walendy faked the photo in his own book
since it did not agree with his alleged source.

    There is another picture where he makes much of the fact that a
swastika on a helmet is not crisp, and produces a genuine photo for
comparison.  But if you look at the genuine photo and check the helmet of
the person next to the one Walendy uses as his example of correctness, it
is about the same as the alleged fake.  It is apparently either slightly
out of focus or badly printed.  But by Walendy's rules of evidence we must
conclude that his supposed genuine photo is also a fake.

    Now, the non-crisp swastika photo was clearly retouched, and it does
appear that it was done with the intent to make the Germans look more
menacing.  But I think it is based on a true photo, and is not an outright
invention as Walendy claims.

    I am interested only because they would appear to require more storage
space than the average house provides.  But perhaps Mr. Blackmore occupies
a mansion.  His claim of owning 45-60,000 volumes seemed rather
farfetched otherwise.

    EAST of Russia?  In Japan?  Where in the Wannsee Protocol do you find
that?

    Actually, I should have said "the occupied Soviet Union" rather than
"Russia" - technically, they were (supposedly) looking at areas of
non-Russian SSRs.

    But I think I have the story much straighter than you do.

    Buzzer there.  That was not his testimony.  That was his personal

    Let's see, you are suggesting he told the truth at Nuremberg - where
his life was on the line - and wrote incriminating lies into his personal
diary, lies contradicting what his own ministry was putting out?

    He may not have known the details.  But in his personal diary, not
subject to any torturers, he recorded that those not able to work would
have to be liquidated.  That contradicts revisionist claims that
resettlement was the policy.  Sorry about that.

    When you understand what is being discussed you are welcome to join in
the discussion.  But offering irrelevant comments based on total ignorance
of the nature of the evidence being discussed is a waste of everyone's
time.

    Unless, of course, your goal is to obfuscate and confuse.  Then your
strategy makes sense.

    Just to test the precision of my memory of this nonexistent public
discussion, I went to DejaNews, did a power search filtering on
alt.revisionism, and searched for articles containing the three words
Hebrew, root, and gopher.  Got a hit on one of Matt's articles dated May
14 in the supposedly nonexistent public discussion on my first try.  It
wasn't the first one in the thread - and I knew it would not be - but I
think it should suffice to prove both the existence of the discussion and
the accuracy of my memory regarding what was said in that discussion. 


>After all,

    DejaNews says Matt is either lying or suffering from early-onset
Alzheimer's.

    According to Ken, this is because it was obsolete and should have been

not.

    Ending the quote here obscures the fact that the date of the interview
was over two years ago.  The context of the date is important, because it
precedes the help from the synagogue in collecting donations.

    What Matt has done is to take something out of context for the purpose
of creating a false impression, which is a libel and tortable according to
legal expert Matt Giwer.

    You don't appear to understand what a source is.  If that quote is
authentic, unless you were there personally in 1859 listening to Rabbi
Reichorn you must have obtained that quote from somewhere else.  Since I
think I am safe in assuming that you are not a Frenchman who is at least
137 years old, that leaves us with option #2.

    If that "somewhere else" was the Nile URL, _they_ must have obtained
it from somewhere else.  The object is to track it back either to a
checkable trustworthy secondary source which mentions the primary source,
or (better) the primary source itself - the book, newspaper article,
lecture along with the name of the person recording that quote, or
whatever.

    Perhaps an example will help you to understand the issue better. 
Let's see if I can find some evidence for the Holocaust - why, look, it's
a Hitler quote!

    "I order the physical destruction of the Jews by poison gas." - A. 
Hitler, 1942. 

    The Holocaust should now be proved to the satisfaction of the
revisionists, since I have produced a Hitler order.  What?  You don't
believe me?  You think I made that up?  I'm afraid I don't understand.  I
gave a _source_, didn't I?

    Does Thinking Man think there's a possibility that Doubleday & Co.

    How does Thinking Man think that he would gain any benefit from seeing
the original German unless he was a German expert himself?

    I think Thinking Man needs to do a little more thinking.

    The person who made that statement is not the same person who posted
the document.  And you omitted the context of the remark.  But let us
ignore that since we agree it is off-topic.

    Do you have any comment on the substantive issues I raised which have
nothing to do with issues of good and evil, only the factual matter of
consistency of Nazi policy?  If yes, please give me your on-topic
response.  If not, let's drop the matter and move on to other on-topic
issues.

    Excuse me, but you are always demanding that Dr. Keren, Jamie
McCarthy, etc. provide proof and proof of the proof and proof of proof of
proof.

    The millionaire claim was Mr. Beaulieu's.  His claim, his burden of
proof.  But all of a sudden you think it is Charles Power who bears the
burden of finding out the facts, not Mr. Beaulieu.

    If I didn't know what an honest fellow you were, I would swear I was
seeing some hypocrisy on your part, hmn?

    I wonder, Mr. Slepokura, if you can find one _scientific_ report
proving that anyone was killed by enemy action at the D-Day landing.  The
truth may shock you, but it would appear that all reports of deaths that
day, on both sides, were made for the most part by unqualified personnel. 
Even those death reports filled out by doctors appear to have been made
based on the reports of eyewitnesses (who, as we know, are quite
unreliable) with no autopsy done, let alone ballistics tests.

    Was any scientific testing done on the bullets which killed the
Americans to see if they were really of German manufacture?  Without that
scientific report, for all we know there were a lot of personal quarrels
that day which were settled by taking advantage of the cover provided by
the invasion.

    Actually, true revisionism is a process whereby existing evidence (and
possibly some newly-discovered evidence as well) are re-evaluated and a
new interpretation or explanation of the evidence formed. 

    My observation of the kind of revisionism that goes on here is that
for the post part, it is a process where there is a blind _rejection_ of
anything offered as evidence by calling it "Soviet forgery."  No forensic
evidence is usually offered; indeed, usually no evidence is offered that
the document in question came from the Soviets. 

    In extreme cases, people like Jeff Roberts continue to assert that the
Diary of Anne Frank was a forgery by her father, despite the fact that
extensive forensic testing was done on the diary, and it was found to be
genuine.  (Roberts knows of the testing and does not mention it in his
articles.  This counts as a lie in my book, and my book uses a very strict
defintion.)

    It did not appear to survive.  You know that if it did, and it said
"Absolutely not!  We are not murderers!" that some revisionist would have
produced it long ago.  But if it said, "Sure, great idea, let's wipe 'em
out,"  how would that affect your position?

    The document is as it is, and you must take the evidence as you find
it.  Tell me, if you really think that negative answers came back to all

such a wrong idea in the first place that what they were proposing would

    Just to test the precision of my memory of this nonexistent public
discussion, I went to DejaNews, did a power search filtering on
alt.revisionism, and searched for articles containing the three words
Hebrew, root, and gopher.  Got a hit on one of Matt's articles dated May
14 in the supposedly nonexistent public discussion on my first try.  It
wasn't the first one in the thread - and I knew it would not be - but I
think it should suffice to prove both the existence of the discussion and
the accuracy of my memory regarding what was said in that discussion. 


>After all,

    DejaNews says Matt is either lying or suffering from early-onset
Alzheimer's.

    If Matt Giwer really knew how to use a search engine, he would know
what Purdon's was.  All he had to do was enter "Purdon's" into Altavista.
First entry contains the clear explanation.

    How strange that the Library of Congress catalog has no entry which

    No, it's a factual question.  Revisionists say there are (or at least
were at one time) about four or five million live Jews running around for
years after everyone else believed dead.  If you can ask where the ashes
are, I can ask where those live Jews went and how they got there.

    Except that they have not - not the total numbers.  There have been
revisions at individual sites.  And the Auschwitz deflation did not affect
the Jewish total, as the four million claim was _people_, not Jews alone.



[discussion of additional death registers deleted]

>That is what "Holocaust" Revisionism has achieved!

    You are overblowing things.  On the shelves of the Holocaust Museum
library are copies of previously-discovered death registers.  It wasn't
revisionists who produced those.  It wasn't the theory or method of
revisionism which produced the documents.

    As you yourself admit below (and I thank you for having the honesty to
acknowledge the argument), the registers only cover _registered_
prisoners.  So the new documents do not change anyone's understanding from
what the previously-known death registers showed.  So where is the
wonderful new achievement?

    Let me ask you: quite aside from the issue of whether anyone was
gassed, do you seriously believe that NOT ONE person died of natural
causes on the trains?  How do you think they were handled?  Do you think
they assigned prisoner numbers to dead bodies so they could be included in
those death registers?  Can you find unnumbered or "name unknown"
prisoners in the death registers?

    You completely overlook the fact that your own theory - that most of
the missing Jews were alive somewhere after the war - suffers from the
same gaping documentary hole. We know that hundreds of thousands of Jews
were sent to Auschwitz from Hungary in 1944. We know that they are _not_
recorded as Auschwitz prisoners - there aren't enough registration records
to cover them.  And we do not have any records of them being transported
out.

    I know that some _were_ transported into Auschwitz and then out again
as workers without any registration at Auschwitz.  I know this from the
testimony of survivors who had this experience, and I said so publicly as
soon as I found this anecdotal evidence.

    But what happened to those not able to work and not registered - the
aged and the children?  As with the unknown and unknowable number of
workers described above, your compulsive German bureaucracy seems to have
gotten a bit sloppy.  So far no records have been found for them - either
dead OR alive.  If the absence of records is significant evidence, then it
must be significant in all cases, not just when it helps the revisionist
argument. There is such a thing as intellectual consistency. 


>Anybody who
>understands the workings of the Nazi bureaucracy would wonder at this
>expensive, cumbersome and insufficient method of carting Jews all over
>Europe.

    Anybody who understands military matters would wonder at the resources
wasted on this expensive, cumbersome, and inefficient practice of rounding
up Jews - even toddlers and arthritic nonagenarians - in the middle of a
desperate war on two fronts.

    So would you say this is evidence that Auschwitz never even existed
and nobody was ever sent there?

    Again, same argument applies to the transport wasted on infants and
geriatric cases.  Do you deny that this apparently illogical transport
activity took place?  If you do not, then "it makes no sense" is not a
very persuasive argument.  We have already accepted that they did things
that made no sense.

    One would think that the Chief Rabbi of France would be important
enough to merit an entry in the Jewish Encyclopedia and Encyclopedia
Judaica.  However, neither work has an entry for "Reichorn."  Are you
quite sure you have the name right?

    I also looked up the playwright Israel Cohen.  While there is a
British Zionist of that name who lived about the right time, there is no
mention of his being a playwright.  Again, something seems to be seriously
wrong with your source.

    Now _you_ go research "Rabbi Reichorn" and Israel Cohen and get back
to _me_.

    Let me give you some more information about source citation.  The
purpose is to enable someone to know exactly what publication you are
talking about.  Looking at the Library of Congress catalog reveals that
there are a fair number of newspapers called "The Jewish Tribune."  What
you gave above is almost good enough, but you should really give a city
with that.  Once you do, that becomes a valid and checkable citation -
it's precise enough to enable someone to find the paper if it exists, or
discover that no such paper existed if it doesn't.

    Until and unless you produce the CFD which resulted in the creation of

    You completely overlook the fact that your own theory - that most of
the missing Jews were alive somewhere after the war - suffers from the
same gaping documentary hole. We know that hundreds of thousands of Jews
were sent to Auschwitz from Hungary in 1944. We know that they are _not_
recorded as Auschwitz prisoners - there aren't enough registration records
to cover them.  And we do not have any records of them being transported
out.

    I know that some _were_ transported into Auschwitz and then out again
as workers without any registration at Auschwitz.  I know this from the
testimony of survivors who had this experience, and I said so publicly as
soon as I found this anecdotal evidence.

    But what happened to those not able to work and not registered - the
aged and the children?  As with the unknown and unknowable number of
workers described above, your compulsive German bureaucracy seems to have
gotten a bit sloppy.  So far no records have been found for them - either
dead OR alive.  If the absence of records is significant evidence, then it
must be significant in all cases, not just when it helps the revisionist
argument. There is such a thing as intellectual consistency. 


>Anybody who
>understands the workings of the Nazi bureaucracy would wonder at this

    Anybody who understands military matters would wonder at the resources
wasted on this expensive, cumbersome, and inefficient practice of rounding
up Jews - even toddlers and arthritic nonagenarians - in the middle of a
desperate war on two fronts.

    So would you say this is evidence that Auschwitz never even existed
and nobody was ever sent there?

    Again, same argument applies to the transport wasted on infants and
geriatric cases.  Do you deny that this apparently illogical transport
activity took place?  If you do not, then "it makes no sense" is not a
very persuasive argument.  We have already accepted that they did things
that made no sense.

    Until and unless you produce the CFD which resulted in the creation of

    At this point, I think that if you wish to allege that someone is
being intellectually dishonest by cutting out exculpatory material, it is
your job to show that such material exists.

    You suggested that it is Charles Power who ought to do the work of
finding out Lanzmann's net worth to provide the evidence about Mr. 
Beaulieu's unsupported assertion that he is a millionaire.  You suggested
that it is Danny Keren who is responsible for disproving Chris Carpenter's
improperly sourced quote.  If I fabricate a quote from you saying you were
a child molester, how would you go about proving you never said that?

    Dr. Keren gave the full, checkable source.  Yet you demand he cater to
your whims to show you more to prove he _didn't_ give you something out of
context.  Sorry, some hypocrisy is rather apparent here.

    When I am given a checkable source, I check it.  If I find it stands
up I say so.  If I find it doesn't, I say so.  After a few proven
distortions, _then_ I might start asking about any ellipses and other
edits before checking references.  But unless you have evidence that Dr. 
Keren has excised relevant material from any of his quotes which changes
their interpretation, at this point it's your job to check references when
you are given them.  If you _do_ have evidence he has distorted something
by selective quotation or editing, you are invited to present that
evidence. 


>Also, I can scarcely regard an excerpt
>from Halder's diary as being a document which proves an
>argument unqualifiedly.

    STRAWMAN ALERT: Nobody said this document was unqualified proof.  It
is a piece of evidence.  Many pieces of evidence converge on a conclusion. 


>I would need to see documents
>where this policy was implemented on all fronts and the
>reasons why.

    We can only work with the documents which have survived.  Are you
saying that if there was one front where the information was completely
missing, you would declare that you could safely ignore the evidence?  And
what would you do with the reason why?  Do you seriously believe the
reason is security?  If it is explicitly stated as being eugenic policy
only, what difference does that make considering that the Jews were
considered an inferior enemy race? 

    You seem to be engaged in the strategy of demanding a piece of
evidence, then demanding a piece of evidence to corroborate the first
piece, then another to corroborate the second, and so on.  That is valid
up to a point, but I do have to ask: how many trees _do_ you need to see
before you permit yourself to become aware that there might be a forest in
the vicinity?

    The original poster omitted the part of the article where the Israeli
explanation was given.  However, it does not really help.  Either the
court should have found that they acted appropriately, or that they did
not.  If it was determined that they acted appropriately, there should
have been no penalty at all.  If it was determined that they overreacted,
they should have been given the same punishment as an ordinary police
officer who gives in to panic and shoots an innocent civilian.  If it was
determined that they opened fire with malice and premeditation, they
should be tried for murder, not negligent homicide.

    It is difficult to see how there can be peace while this sort of
injustice exists.

    However, Matt Giwer has told us that we must stay on topic, so we will
have to move this discussion elsewhere.  Followups set to

    Please explain how this relates to anything I said.  I did not say one
word about the Yad Vashem lists.  As should have been obvious to anyone
literate in the English language, I was talking about the incomplete
Auschwitz death registers which were known before the ones Ms. Rimland
seems to be talking about that fill in the gaps for the missing months.

    Cremation makes it kinda hard to identify the remains of any

    Wrong.  There are survivors who were on the trains to Auschwitz who
never got an Auschwitz number.

    Um, just how would you expect those deaths to be recorded?  What would
you be looking for in the books that would tell you this one was an SK
member?

    I do have an idea where to go look for such evidence.  I might just be
able to oblige you, though it will take some time to do the research I
have in mind.

    Try telling your superior officer that you refuse to follow a verbal

    I presume you mean _written_ orders?  And just why would one expect
that?  If such orders were secret - as one would expect - one would also
expect them to be destroyed to keep them from falling into the hands of
the advancing Soviets.

    It assumes no such thing.

    Actually, no.  And of course you are creating a strawman, which I wish
you would stop doing.  All I am assuming is that we would expect to see a
perfectly natural thing like a couple dozen old people, out of several
hundred thousand people shipped to Auschwitz from Hungary, having heart
attacks or strokes.  We keep hearing revisionists talking about how
disease was rampant.

    Terrible analysis.  Most of the rest of the 31 million people (a
figure you've never given a source for) were not taken into custody by the
people Ms. Rimland refers to as compulsory bureaucrats.  The Jews were. 
That is a very significant difference.

    On Ms.  Rimland's description of the Germans, there ought to be some
record of what was done with _all_ of the Hungarian Jews transported to
Auschwitz in 1944.  The books don't balance.


>So where are you going with all of this? 

    I don't know how to make it much simpler than I already have.

    On what basis?  Rather than grandly asserting something might be

    I know it will spoil your game plan, but them's the breaks.

    The fact that a shooting victim survived does not prove that there was
no attempted murder.

    How many will you accept as a reasonable sample?

    As a start, did you look at the archaeological report for which I
posted the URL?

    Please explain how this relates to anything I said.  I did not say one
word about the Yad Vashem lists.  As should have been obvious to anyone
literate in the English language, I was talking about the incomplete
Auschwitz death registers which were known before the ones Ms. Rimland
seems to be talking about that fill in the gaps for the missing months.

    Cremation makes it kinda hard to identify the remains of any
individual missing Jew.

    Wrong.  There are survivors who were on the trains to Auschwitz who
never got an Auschwitz number.

    Um, just how would you expect those deaths to be recorded?  What would
you be looking for in the books that would tell you this one was an SK
member?

    I do have an idea where to go look for such evidence.  I might just be
able to oblige you, though it will take some time to do the research I
have in mind.

    Try telling your superior officer that you refuse to follow a verbal
order, it must be put in writing.  Let us know what happens.

    Again, why?  There are no such things as verbal orders?

    I presume you mean _written_ orders?  And just why would one expect
that?  If such orders were secret - as one would expect - one would also
expect them to be destroyed to keep them from falling into the hands of
the advancing Soviets.

    Would they?  Even children?

    It assumes no such thing.

    Actually, no.  And of course you are creating a strawman, which I wish
you would stop doing.  All I am assuming is that we would expect to see a
perfectly natural thing like a couple dozen old people, out of several
hundred thousand people shipped to Auschwitz from Hungary, having heart
attacks or strokes.  We keep hearing revisionists talking about how
disease was rampant.

    Terrible analysis.  Most of the rest of the 31 million people (a
figure you've never given a source for) were not taken into custody by the
people Ms. Rimland refers to as compulsory bureaucrats.  The Jews were. 
That is a very significant difference.

    On Ms.  Rimland's description of the Germans, there ought to be some
record of what was done with _all_ of the Hungarian Jews transported to
Auschwitz in 1944.  The books don't balance.


>So where are you going with all of this? 

    I don't know how to make it much simpler than I already have.

    Actually, the claim of millions shipped to A-B was never based on
shipping records in the first place.  It was based on Hoess's testimony,
which he later admitted was hearsay, and later revised downwards himself
in his memoirs - contradicting the claims of the very people revisionists
assert coerced Hoess into writing those memoirs.

    Since the only person I have ever seen making any claim about railroad
records of all four of Hoess's original millions being _shipped_ is Matt
Giwer, the answer to his question

>	So which and  how many of those liars who reported the total of

is left as an exercise to those capable of elementary logic.

    DejaNews shows no such post from Dr. Keren.  In fact, the first
posting of the letter found on DejaNews was by mgiwer@ix.netcom.com on 30
Sept.

>Hungarian Jews being shipped to Auschwitz.

Let's see, you are referring to this quote?

"Every day, twelve thousand souls are being taken off. Four deportations
of forty-five such train-loads move daily out of Hungary. Within
twenty-six days all that area will have been deported."

    I make that 26 days * 12,000/day = 312,000.  The second sentence is
rather unclear.  I take it you are assuming that he meant 12,000 were on
each of forty-five daily trains?  But that doesn't work either.  It
produces 14,040,000.  Maybe you think he meant 4 * 12,000 * 26.  But that
gives 1,248,000, not your claimed three million.

    Why didn't you go all the way and multiply all the numbers, to get

    4 deportations * 45 trains/deportation * 12,000 people/train * 26 days
= 56,160,000.  You could even add two more days (due to the "yesterday"
reference and the assumption that the twenty-six days didn't include
today) to make the number even bigger.

    Or didn't you think anyone would swallow a lie that big?

    But we still have no explanation of how you can get to the number
three million from anything in the paragraph from the letter.  The most
obvious explanation is that you once again slipped the decimal point.

    Naughty, naughty.  Nobody claimed that the camps held millions of
people all at the same time.

    Since you refuse to go farther than your computer screen to look, it
is not surprising you have seen no sign of them.  Have you even yet
checked out the URL I provided with the Australian archaeologist's report?

    Who claimed that there were?

    It was not necessary to ship them to shoot them.  It was necessary to
ship them to keep their neighbors from seeing them being shot.  Sorry your
mind is not capable of seeing such subtle points.  There were complaints

the executions were too much of a spectacle.

    Yes, neither you nor Matt Giwer can do simple arithmetic or read with
comprehension.  You must indeed be the same person.  The odds against the
world holding two such idiots at the same time are astronomical.

    What would the information allow you to conclude that you can't
conclude already?  Please tell us the point.

    Perhaps you are trying to suggest that such reports may be forgeries,
that you would like to find the author to ask if they are authentic?
Perhaps you are not aware that at the time the reports were written,
British Intelligence intercepted and decoded many radio reports which
involved the same kinds of killing actions in the written reports.  These
intercepts involved the Ultra secret, which was so highly classified that
it was not revealed until years after the war - the intercepts were never
used at Nuremberg.  However, they corroborate the written reports that
mass executions were being carried out - and they are completely untainted
by Soviet hands.  Does this additional information allow you to form some
conclusion about the written reports?
