A newcomer to this blog might wonder why I write about Brett Kimberlin and his compatriots. This post, which was first published as the TKPOTD a year ago today, provides a bit of an explanation.

I started this blog to write about things that interest me, and one of those topics is issues relating to the First Amendment. That interest led me to participate in the Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day blogburst back in 2012, and that, in turn, led to my focus on Brett Kimberlin and his associates.
Kimberlin has tried to use the force of the government in the form of nuisance lawsuits and false criminal complaints to suppress truthful reporting about his past and present activities, but that has not been his sole tool in his campaign of brass knuckles reputation management. Team Kimberlin has also engaged in various forms of online harassment, much of which has been perpetrated by Bill Schmalfeldt.
When anyone has taken steps to hold Schmalfeldt accountable for his actions, he has replied with failed legal actions, false DMCA takedown notices, and blustery threats.
It’s been over three-and-a-half years since that threat, and the only times law enforcement has been to my house since I started this blog were to investigate an attempted break-in and to take a complaint against Schmalfeldt for failure to obey a peace order. I seem to be in full control of this blog as I have been since Day One.
Meanwhile, we’re still waiting for news in the pending Team-Kimberlin-related court cases.

At least one of the pending court cases has been finished since that was originally posted. Bill Schmalfeldt’s LOLsuit VIII: Avoiding Contact( in which I was one of the defendants) was dismissed by the U. S. District Court for the District of South Carolina.
Team Kimberlin has maintained their perfect record by losing everything they’ve filed since the beginning of 2012.
Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.
