Brett Kimberlin made a stupid mistake by trying to use the courts to suppress Aaron Walker’s First Amendment rights, but his worst mistake was tangling with me. He really should have read the motto of this blog—Never pick a fight with a man who buys pixels by the terabyte. Not only have my codefendants and I beat back his efforts to use the courts to suppress our free speech and free press rights, but I have held him and the rest of Team Kimberlin up to the scorn and ridicule they deserve. As I noted in the TKPOTD from four years ago today, Team Kimberlin was out of their league picking on even such an inconsequential blog as Hogewash!—

As I’ve been looking forward to dealing with the frivolous and vexatious lawsuits filed by Brett Kimberlin (the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. state suit and the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness), I’ve been evaluating various assets at my disposal. All I’ll say for now about the legal issues is that I believe my part of both cases is coming together nicely.
And then there’s the PR campaign.
You see, PR and Brett Kimberlin’s attempts at brass knuckles reputation management are the real point of The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s lawfare. I have several distinct advantages over TDPK in the PR contest.
First, this minor league blog has roughly ten times the traffic of the total readership of all the blogs associated with Team Kimberlin. My codefendants’ various web footprints dwarf mine. To the extent that Team Kimberlin wants to engage in a shouting match … well, perhaps they should remember this scene from Casablanca—
Aux armes, citoyens,
Formez vos bataillons,
Qu’un sang impur
Abreuve nos sillons!
Second, there is Bill Schmalfeldt. The Cabin Boy has got to be my greatest PR asset. His unhinged ranting based on the wildly inaccurate legal theories from Acme Law combined with his off-putting vileness serve to discredit Team Kimberlin far more effectively than anything I could do. Stacy McCain discusses an example of the Cabin Boy’s outrageous nonsense here.
TDPK lost control of his narrative when the blogosphere picked up his story. The lawsuits he’s got going now appear to be a last-ditch effort to salvage the false reputation he tried to create for himself.
The end game begins.

And the end game continues. It’s been a long six years, but I suspect that 2018 will see the final bit of the mopping up phase as Team Kimberlin’s effective presence in the real world and on the Internet fades from obscurity into oblivion. Hogewash! will join with other blogs as the mockery of Team Kimberlin continues.
Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.
