  1. It’s “My parkinson’s is getting worse and Hoge is trying to kill me with his lawsuit!” day. Otherwise known as Tuesday.


    • He still hasn’t explained why he listed all the NASA posts if he wasn’t trying to make WP think that he was claiming he was the copyright holder or their agent. There is NO reason for him to have mentioned those posts, except to get the result he did, and the email he showed on Twitter, with it’s demand that both Hogewash and Thinking Man’s Zombie, (the entire blogs, not just individual posts) be down by the end of the day, along with listing the NASA posts, certainly doesn’t put him in a good light.


      • Nothing he tweets or blogs puts him in a good light. It’s obvious what he was trying to do, and none of his protestations can change that.


      • Unless I’ve missed the entire letter somewhere, there was nothing in what he posted in four parts yesterday that shows his intention was anything but what happened.


      • The following tweets were the Deranged Cyberstalker and Adjudicated Harasser Bill Schmalfeldt’s “explanation” for including the NASA links:

        ‘Twas deception pure and simple. Unfortunately for Baghdad Blob, his little, deceptive game may come back to bite him in his ginormous, gelatinous ass as he attested under penalty of perjury he was the copyright holder or authorized agent of the NASA photos/videos.

        As WordPress communicated to our Gentle Host: “We’ve received the DMCA notice (link removed) below regarding material published on your WordPress (dot) com site, which means the complainant is asserting ownership of this material and claiming that your use of it is not permitted by him/her or the law.”

        And, note the communication from the Deranged Cyberstalker and Adjudicated Harasser Bill Schmalfeldt to WordPress included his typical spewings of threats and lies (As has been previously pointed out — BS does not possess the ability to add additional defendants to his Counterclaim solely due to a new case of butthurt):

        “Now, if you continue to ignore my demand to remove the offending URLs, then you lose your Safe Harbor Protection, and you become liable for the law being broken by Mr. Hoge on his blog. And believe me, sir, that after 19 months of pure hell this man has put me through, I am in no mood to do any favors for WordPress [dot] com for allowing him and his pet, the pseudonymous blogger “Paul Krendler” who blogs and steals copyrighted materials from others and (links to Thinking Man’s Zombie here) to continue to flaunt [sic] the law.

        If those blogs are not removed from the WordPress [dot] com environment by close of business today, I will seek to add Automatic and WordPress [dot] com and you, sir, to the list of defendants in my Counterclaim.

        Please do your duty under the law.”

        Per always… the Deranged Cyberstalker and Adjudicated Harasser Bill Schmalfeldt has managed to find a larger shovel with which to dig. *smh*


    • What happened is what happens when someone files a DMCA Takedown notice with a responsible OSP. There was nothing else that could have happened.

      I suppose I could be wrong. The other thing that could have happened, I reckon, is the darn DMCA Takedown notice could filed itself.


      • Upon information and belief (SWIDT), based on the four part tweet; the entirety of the takedown was NASA stuff. I’m lead to understand that there was no other material referenced.
