You can find the details of the exchange in question here, including tweets/posts that the Liberal Grouch deleted (perhaps in an attempt to erase evidence?).
Team Kimberlin is saying that they will start a “legal defense fund” for the Liberal Grouch if he sues Mr. Walker. They have the right idea because he will need a defense fund when the counterclaims come back from Aaron Walker.
Oh, and if Bill Schmalfeldt (if that’s his real name) is stupid enough to sue Aaron Walker, I’ll be first in line to make a substantial contribution to the Blogger Defense Team to help defray Mr. Walker’s legal expenses.
UPDATE—@LiberalGrouch tweets that I should read his side of the story. [This link is broken. It went to a long-abandoned site.] I have. My comments above stand.

2016 UPDATE—I’ll bet the Cabin Boy™ now wishes he had left Aaron Walker alone.
