I think so, Brain … but some folks’ idea of a Reliable Source is the guy who started the rumor.

Lying liars gotta lie, and they also seem to have to accuse folks who tell the truth of telling lies instead. Bill Schmalfeldt is a textbook example of that proposition, as a post called Provable Lies from a couple of years ago demonstrates.
* * * * *
Bill Schmalfeldt is a liar, and some of the biggest whoppers he’s told are his claims to have found “provable lies” that others have told about him. The Cabin Boy™ would have the world believe that every hearing or trial that has gone against him has been the result of lying by his adversaries.
Most recently, he’s put out a podcast asserting that he’s found nine such lies that were told by Sarah Palmer during the North Carolina hearing that resulted in restraining orders number 8 and 9 against the Cabin Boy™. I listened to the audio he posted. I’ve also seen the documentary evidence that Mrs. Palmer used during the hearing. That evidence backs up what she said. She didn’t lie. Rather, Schmalfeldt appears to be lying about her.
When Schmalfeldt claimed Lynn Thomas was lying, it turned out that it was Schmalfeldt who had forged a set of emails.
When Schmalfeldt claimed that Scott Hinckley was lying, it turned out that Mr. Hinckley had documentary evidence to back up what he had said in court.
When Schmalfeldt claimed that the Causey’s had lied about phone calls he had made, there was documentary evidence to back them up.
When Schmalfeldt claimed that I had lied during the hearing for the extension of the first peace order and tried the file a perjury charge against me, the Commissioner found there was no probable cause and denied his Application for Statement of Charges.
When Schmalfedt claimed that he had found twenty-four lies in my answer to his motion to modify the first peace order that would result in my being led away from the courthouse “in irons,” he failed to raise a single one of them during the hearing on his motion.
During the District Court trial for the first peace order, Schmalfeldt lied about having received notice to stop contacting me. During the de novo appeal trial in the Circuit Court one of his tweets acknowledging the notice was introduced into evidence, and the order was granted. That resulted in the Cabin Boy™ spreading the lie that my lawyer and I had misrepresented the nature of Twitter to the judge, when what we really said was that I had no more obligation to block someone on Twitter than I would have had to change my phone number to avoid contact—that it was the Cabin Boy™ obligation to leave me alone. He’s still telling that lie today rather than face the truth that he is an adjudicated harasser.
Judges in five states have weighted the testimony of witnesses appearing before them and reviewed documentary evidence, and those judges have found the witnesses and evidence credible. No one has to lie about Bill Schmalfeldt in court. The truth is sufficiently devastating to his cause.

I should update that last paragraph. Thus far, judges in seven states have weighed the evidence before them and found the Cabin Boy’s™ statements non-credible, and so have police agencies of at least four states and the federal government.
Will he be able to move enough times to collect losses in all 50 states?
Ἴστε, ἀδελφοί μου ἀγαπητοί. ἔστω δὲ πᾶς ἄνθρωπος ταχὺς εἰς τὸ ἀκοῦσαι, βραδὺς εἰς τὸ λαλῆσαι, βραδὺς εἰς ὀργήν· ὀργὴ γὰρ ἀνδρὸς δικαιοσύνην Θεοῦ οὐκ ἐργάζεται. Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.
—The Epistle of James

I think so, Brain … but the label won’t come off of this non-stick pan.
