I begin to suspect that the true infamy of the VM lies in the combination of 
unknown language with unknown script -- that appears to be the true heart and 
soul of the problem.

Considering the fact that in German a "u" is distinct from a "ü" umlaut, _and_ 
some people will place a small horizontal stroke over the "u" to distinguish it 
from an "n", but which doesn't make it a "ü"... one is tempted to give in.

Whether a hoax or not, I think the VM is way more "successful" than its creator 
ever imagined in his wildest dreams.
