Muhammad Nazir wrote the following comments on WORLDCOMP at the mailing list: http://weka.8497.n7.nabble.com/WORLDCOMP-td26782.html or http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.comp.ai.weka/30122 (these links may be removed at anytime due to threats from Hamid Arabnia. That's why the content is attached below):
“Hi Hamid Arabnia,
You are an academic criminal and you accumulated millions of dollars from us using your fake conference WORLDCOMP. Your messages and WORLDCOMP have no credibility and are trash.
If you have any professional values (or at least human values), respond to the researchers' comments/challenge at https://sites.google.com/site/dumpconf or https://sites.google.com/site/moneycomp1 before you post to this list or anywhere again. See http://erlang.org/pipermail/erlang-questions/2013-January/071707.html as well.
You cannot fool us anymore, good luck!”
Hamid Arabnia knows that his WORLDCOMP conference is a fake or bogus or scam or sham. That's why he is not responding to the open challenge here or here (see Section 5) .
(2). Hamid Arabnia's Anti-Christmas Greetings Campaign:
The key person in Hamid Arabnia's WORLDCOMP is Ashu Solo (AMG Solo or Ashu M.G. Solo). Ashu Solo is the mouth-piece of Hamid Arabnia and he sends call-for-papers to almost all mailing lists and blogs in the world. See some sample call-for-papers are available: here or here or here or here or here or here . Ashu Solo is also the co-editor and co-author of many fake publications of WORLDCOMP. Click here to see his publications from DBLP and notice Hamid Arabnia's name in almost all WORLDCOMP publications. Hamid Arabnia described Ashu Solo as "a good friend and a PC of worldcomp" and "good friend of mine and a program committee of WORLDCOMP" in his postings: see here or here
In almost all western countries, “Merry Christmas” is used to express best wishes or good luck during Christmas season and this is a centuries-old tradition. However, Ashu Solo didn't like this and he protested against this. Click here or here or here or here or here or here for details (or search Google using the words Ashu Solo, Christmas). Hamid Arabnia was the actual person behind this anti-Christmas greetings campaign. Ashu Solo was used as a mask for Hamid Arabnia. WORLDCOMP money is used to file complaints and law-suits.
If Christmas greetings appear wrong to Hamid Arabnia then why didn't the fake conference WORLDCOMP business appear wrong?
Hamid Arabnia (and Ashu Solo) is a double standard and a sick person who cannot even enjoy Christmas greetings!
