NGC 1433

Composite_NGC_1433This detailed view shows the central parts of the nearby active galaxy NGC 1433. The dim blue background image, showing the central dust lanes of this galaxy, comes from the Hubble Space Telescope. The other colored structures near the middle of the image are from ALMA observations. ALMA is the Atacama Large Millimeter/sub-millimeter Array, an astronomical interferometer of radio telescopes in the Atacama desert of northern Chile.

  1. So The World’s Stupidest Man complains to WordPress that our host is violating copyrights and submits a ton of these informative NASA posts as examples and is now surprised that “the stoners and slackers” at WordPress removed them. Since Bill has memory holed his countless lies and downright ignorant statements he made previously let’s all remember that not long ago he turned in our host to NASA and the FBI for legally using these photos on this blog. NOT for claiming copyright on them as he now stupidly alleges, but just for using them. Now WordPress has removed them and Bill claims THEY are the stupid ones. You can’t make this shit up folks.

    • And now YOU are the world’s stupidest man, because Bill is claiming he didn’t ask WordPress to remove them. I’m sure the nice “stoners and slackers” couldn’t see any other reason for Bill to contact them about those posts, since there is absolutely NO reason for them to need to care about his copyright claims if they don’t affect what they are hosting.

      • I’m complaining about copyright infringement. Here are 70 totally unrelated thing I’m stuff g in to make sure everyone is nice and confused. Typical Schmalfeldt tactic. He used it on the NASA “photo editor” the online lawyers, etc. Confuse the issue then claim it’s everyone else fault when what you wanted to happen happens. World’s Most Stupid Man is also World’s Most Dishonest Man.

      • Understood and I agree that this looks like a pattern of harassment. I have a comment in moderation (due to multiple links within it) listing numerous BS emails in which he gloats about reporting Hoge for alleged copyright infringement, so stay tuned.


    Mr. Schmalfeldt has been shown conclusively that our Gentle Host’s copyright registration on Form G/DN does not include any independently authored contributions (like, say, NASA photographs) in which all rights have not been transferred to the claimant. See

    Therefore, Mr. Schmalfeldt is now willfully lying when he repeats the allegation that Mr. Hoge is claiming copyright on NASA content.

  3. This could strike some as part and parcel of a pattern of harassment. And, Vet, this is what I’m here for, by the way, to quote BS:

    Hoge is, of course, lying. Unless his name is Paul Krendler who is the only individual I “took it upon myself” to report to companies.—

    Magnum Photos wants to talk to him about writing a check for his Tianamen Square photos.

    ESA is not happy with the way Hoge uses their pictures without proper attribution.—

    Oh, my. Magnum Photos will be “in touch” with Mr. Hoge.— WMS Radio Network (@wmsbroadcasting) June 18, 2014

    Uh Oh! Now, the ASSOCIATED PRESS is going to see if Hoge has infringed their copyrights!— WMS Radio Network (@wmsbroadcasting) June 18, 2014

    Also, Hoge will have to write a check to Magnum Photos and Getty images.—

    ESA wants full credit and a copy of the story.—
    WMS Radio Network (@wmsbroadcasting) June 19, 2014

    I will contact the copyright holder and leave it up to Hoge and the copyright owner to work out a payment schedule.— WMS Radio Network (@wmsbroadcasting) June 19, 2014

    And then, there’s Hoge’s use of the “Mission Accomplished” picture from AP.—

    • Just when you think the Deranged Cyberstalker and Adjudicated Harasser Bill Schmalfeldt cannot possibly sink any lower into the depths of stupidity.

      His ignorance and hubris knows no bounds. I’m still just sitting here shaking my head at it all. Unreal.
