U.S. Holo. Museum Follows k0nsl

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum have been reading my blog now for some weeks. My guess is that they have crafted a web spider that crawls pages and collects the data for evaluation that is to be misused in some manner. I’m not sure yet – because does anybody really believe that the USHMM would be interested in benchmark comparisons between k0nsl-nginx and Apache2? I don’t think so, but that’s what their web spider is currently digesting as I type this message.

Here’s the IP / info of this particular spider, should it interest somebody:

The USHMM were recently busted on some fake photographs which they had put up for display on their Web Page, see:

busted: fake pics of Babi Yar from U.S. Holo. Museum


Maybe they can answer why they resort to such lows as using fake photographs to denigrate Germans? My guess is that they will be silent like a church mouse.
