Over at whatever he’s calling his blog du jour (No, I won’t link to it.), the Cabin Boy™ is spouting his theory that if someone hasn’t been convicted of the crime of X, one can’t refer to that person as an Xer. Thus, under his theory, the San Bernardino shooters can’t be called murderers because they never stood trial.
The Cabin Boy™ thinks that it’s defamatory to refer to him as a cyberstalker. Here’s a definition of the term as it is used in common speaking and writing from the dictionary widget provided with Mac OS X.If the Cabin Boy™ believes that he can prove it’s false to say that he has repeatedly used electronic communications to harass or frighten someone, I hereby offer to testify on behalf of any defendant (at my own expense), and I can provide copies of hundreds of harassing tweets which the Cabin Boy™ has sent me and which he has previously authenticated in open court.
UPDATE—BTW, Bill Schmalfeldt is a cyberstalker.

That post begins with a reference to the Cabin Boy’s™ inability to keep a brand going on the Internet for long (dozens of blogs, hundreds of Twitter accounts and handles). He seems to have had a similar problem with his broadcasting personas. I posted this picture without comment 11 days ago.It’s already obsolete.Whatever.
