Seven years ago today, the TKPOTD examined how Brett Kimberlin’s projecting his own motivations on other people caused problems in his LOLsuits.

One of the ideas that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin won’t let go of is that I have been using the National Bloggers Club to raise money for myself or that I have been one of the major funders of the National Bloggers Club or both at the same time. This exchange is from TDPK’s examination of me during the trial for the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit.
MR. KIMBERLIN: So have you ever received any money, any funds at all from the National Bloggers Club?
MR. HOGE: No.
MR. KIMBERLIN: Have you ever given money to the National Bloggers Club?
MR. OSTRONIC: Objection.
THE COURT: Sustained.
MR. KIMBERLIN: No further questions.
My answer under oath to the second question would have been “No.”
Kimberlin’s projection of his motivations and methods on to others has made it impossible for him to see what his opponents are really doing. While I’m pleased that Hogewash! now generates enough cash flow to pay its own way, its pre-tax profit is probably less than 5 % of my adjusted gross income. TDPK misunderstands what motivates people like me, and that’s one of the reasons why he is doomed to lose at lawfare.

Reality is not Brett Kimberlin’s ally.
