While I don’t have a dog in the fight, I’ve been following the Schmalfeldt v. Grady (, et al.?) LOLsuit and reporting on it. The latest development seems to be the Cabin Boy’s™ fixation on and faildoxing of someone named Vinnie.The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt’s threats to add unconnected third parties to his LOLsuit strikes me as the lawfare equivalent of hostage taking. While it may be tactically wise to negotiate with a hostage taker for a while, it is never wise to give in to his demands. To do so will sure encourage more such terrorism.
UPDATE—A member of Team Lickspittle sent me a link to this tweet.Change to “Connie Hoge.” What then? The Cabin Boy’s™ memory must really be failing. I would have thought he would have remembered how I dealt with his publication of this image at patriot-ombudsman dot com on 29 November, 2013, in a post titled So, What’s the Deal With Hoge’s Peace Order Extension?
I didn’t bring it up as additional evidence that the Cabin Boy’s™ harassment was likely to continue. I only presented evidence of harassment directed specifically at me during the hearing for the extension of the peace order. Moreover, when we engaged in mediation, I let Schmalfeldt off the hook for his violations of the original Peace Order in exchange for his promise to comply with the extension.
He didn’t keep his word.
For the last year-and-a-half, Hogewash! has been receiving comment about Mrs. Hoge and images of her. The comments and images range from off-color to raunchily obscene. In a slip of the tongue during the peace order hearing on 8 May, Schmalfeldt stated that he was justified in commenting on this blog to call me out for my “hypocrisy” for complaining about the comments he and his friends were sending this way.
What then? In 2013, meh.
What now? Murum aries attigit.
