McCain on Schmalfeldt

Sore Loserman Bill Schmalfeldt has gone on a rampage of flaky DMCA takedown notices over the last few days. The Other McCain has been one of his targets. Stacy McCain offers his thoughts on the situation here.

[Y]ou are back to the status I first described on Sept. 4 of last year when, at the end of a 954-word post, I called you an “obscure assclown.”

This I intended not as a mere insult, but as a statement of fact: You are obscure — an insignificant and unpopular nobody, which is why I hadn’t paid any attention to you prior to September 2012 — and you are quite nearly the textbook definition of an assclown. This is a compound word combining the meaning of “ass” — stupid and/or obnoxious –– and “clown,” a laughably incompetent person. If there were an Encyclopedia of Internet Pests, the entry defining “assclown” would end with a notation: “See also, Bill Schmalfeldt.”

Read the whole thing. It’s 5000 words long and worth every syllable.

I’m informed that the DCMA counternotice for The Other McCain shows an address outside of Maryland and consents to the jurisdiction of the U. S. District Court for that non-Maryland district as required by 17 USC § 512(g)(3)(D). The Cabin Boy has a couple of weeks to respond. Who knows? He may think racking up all those frequent flier miles is worth the cost of engaging in frivolous litigation.

  1. Speaking of his DMCA complaints, BS tweeted that he was getting legal advice from a real lawyer. If this is true, I wonder if this legal eagle is one of the Justice Through Music or Velvet Revolution guys you’ve blogged about in the past.

  2. The Cabin Boy gets himself all wound up and then when he just can’t take it anymore (insert picture of fat man swooning on the couch with the vapors here) he will start declaring, “I just can’t take it anymore. They are trying to kill me. Oh the stress of it all. Poor me. Pity me”. About a day later he is back to being an asshat as usual. He complains that stress exacerbates his condition, but yet he attacks and attacks until people fight back, then complains that this causes him stress. Here is some advice for the Cabin Boy….get off the internet. Maybe pay your dogs and wife some attention. Find a hobby that doesn’t include being a harasser. Chill. Find God. Take in a show. Read a good book. But again, get off the internet. It’s clear that he cannot handle the temptation to sit behind his keyboard and just piss people off for sport.
