ZOMBIE: (Telephone Filter) Mr. Atsign, my name is Candler. I need some help.

JOHNNY: What kind of help, Mr. Candler?

ZOMBIE: (Telephone Filter) My fellow zombies and I have been collecting information about this guy who’s been harassing people online. It’s all from open public sources, mostly his own tweets and comments and blogs.

JOHNNY: Uh, huh.

ZOMBIE: (Telephone Filter) Now that we’ve got all this data, we need to authenticate it.

JOHNNY: And I take it that you want help with that.

On Decorum


I’ve been informed that Bill Schmalfeldt has made a claim that I have stated that avatars depicting relatives of members of Team Kimberlin are not permitted here at Hogewash!. I have no recollection of such a rule, and a search of the entire blog history using multiple keywords confirms my memory. Thus far, I have not exercised any editorial control over the avatars used by commenters. I find some avatars very inappropriate, but I have limited my censorship to the words or images contained within comments.

The Cabin Boy™ is threatening to allow publication of inappropriate avatars using Mrs. Hoge’s likeness. Since I’m not sure that the Gentle Readers grasp the level of filth that might be involved, I’ve decided to post this link to a sample of some of the milder images of my family members that I’ve received from Team Kimberlin over the past month. Even if the Cabin Boy™ limits himself to those sorts of images, he’ll still be digging himself a deeper hole.

I’ve been advised by several friends to ban commenters with inappropriate avatars. I’m not inclined to do so. I hope that I don’t have to change my mind.

UPDATE—I’ve been sent a link to a comment that has been posted on the Cabin Boy’s™ latest blog. The comment consists of a link to an image of the sort I don’t let through moderation or trash as soon as I find it.

It’s no surprise that Schmalfeldt is letting more of his depraved ugliness show.

UPDATE 2—I’m informed that the comment discussed above has been deleted. That was a wise choice.

Team Kimberlin Channels Brave Sir Robin


Beginning last Sunday (when The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin had probably put the finishing touches on his Kimberlin v. Team Themis, et al. RICO2 LOLsuit), I began receiving an unusually large number of obscene and/or threatening comments here at Hogewash!; most of them were poorly done photoshop jobs that used Mrs. Hoge’s face in an inappropriate manner.) The last one came in at 3:21 pm ET on Tuesday, 17 March.

sir robin shieldAt 3:56 pm on Tuesday, I posted Judge Hazel’s order dismissing all of TDPK’s Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness claims against me. Since then,

[crickets]

Brave Sir Anonymous Coward has run away.

When Team Kimberlin thinks they are about to score a win, they are big on spiking the ball before they get it to the end zone. Where I learned the game, that’s called a fumble, and it often results in a turnover to the other team’s advantage.
