I think so, Brain … maybe the guy learned journalism by listening to Tom Leher’s Lobachevsky.
There is no branch of mathematics, however abstract, which may not some day be applied to phenomena of the real world.

The Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit is now in the discovery phase. I was served with interrogatories which I answered through counsel. Some of the questions sought privileged information which I declined to provide. The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin filed a motion with the court seeking to compel me to answer those questions. The court has denied his motion.
I do not wish to make any further comments concerning the discovery process in the lawsuit until that phase is completed.
You can help my codefendants (Aaron Walker, Stacy McCain, Ali Akbar, and Kimberlin Unmasked) and me defend our First Amendment rights from Brett Kimberlin’s vexatious attack. Go to Bomber Sues Bloggers to find out how.
UPDATE—I can add that the motion to compel which Judge Rubin denied was also directed against Aaron Walker and Stacy McCain, so they will not be required to provide further discovery either.
UPDATE 2—Nothing I have provided in discovery is under seal, and I expect that when the materials are released TDPK’s questions and my answers will be the source of some amusement. However, it is not in my interest to do anything that has the potential for providing an advantage to TDPK, so neither my lawyer nor I believe it is in my best interest to publish anything.
I think so, Brain … but will the EPA, the SEC, and OSHA let us use Miracle-Gro for that?
Of all the people that Bill Schmalfeldt has harassed, I’m the only one who has been able to do anything to hold him accountable for his actions. In the process of my doing that over the past year, the Cabin Boy™ has been exposed to the world for what he is—an ineffective, incompetent, talentless, vile, and cowardly loudmouth who is full of bluster but lacking in substance.
Stacy McCain has observed that “the best way to discredit Bill Schmalfeldt is to quote Bill Schmalfeldt.” Indeed, allowing Schmalfeldt to act out, allowing him to show his true self over the past year, has allowed him to destroy his own credibility. The most benign view that anyone, including law enforcement, has of him is as a harmless loonie who is a bit of a pain-in-the-ass. That is true not only in Maryland, but in other states as well, and not everyone’s opinion is so benign.
Moreover, the past year has shown the Cabin Boy™ to be a loser. The peace order stuck. His motion for modification was denied. His appeal of the peace order was denied. The six-month extension was granted. There was no probable cause found when he tried to file a perjury charge against me in Carroll County. He’s had even poorer luck on his home turf in Howard County. The only reason he isn’t in the Carroll County Detention Center (or Springfield State Hospital) right now is because I agreed to drop charges. And the whole copyright infringement thing over the past few days … oh, never mind.
You get the picture, don’t you, Gentle Reader? Each new thing the Cabin Boy™ tries winds up showing him to be a bigger fool, a sorrier sore loser. So, beyond saying that I will keep allowing the Cabin Boy™ to make of fool of himself if he insists and to hand me another win, I see no need to give him any help.
I doubt that Bill Schmalfeldt has enough sense to leave me alone. I expect he will do something stupid.
