Team Kimberlin invariably set themselves up for failure, but I must admit I taken some pleasure in helping to grease the skids for them. The honeypot referenced in the Remember the Honeypot? title of this post from six years ago today was one of the more amusing, for me at least, interactions will Bill Schmalfeldt.

The Cabin Boy™ discovered a website last year that “proved” Paul Krendler was up to no good, and he republished what he found here. Schmalfeldt still hasn’t admitted that he was tricked and caught by a honeypot. That’s one of the reasons that some people believe that he truly isn’t educable.
Now, the Cabin Boy™ says he’s found images on the Internet that have metadata showing they were created by “Grady, Pat,” and he’s sure that they prove that Krendler is Grady or Grady is Krendler.
I’m not going to detail all of the problems the Cabin Boy™ would have trying to build a case on that evidence or the problems he would have attempting to get such evidence admitted in court, but I will point out that Grady’s name being in the metadata Schmalfeldt published does not mean it was there when the images were created. It could mean that the Cabin Boy™ has spent $10.99 at the Ap Store.
Or it could mean that someone else did. Or it could mean that whoever created the images simply put Grady’s name in the original metadata.
The Cabin Boy™ seems to get most of his exercise by jumping to conclusions.
There’s a good reason why LOLsuit VI is subtitled The Undiscovered Krendler.

Neither the Cabin Boy™ nor Brett Kimberlin (who claims I was Krendler) ever discovered Paul Krendler’s identity. Not false criminal complaint, and not in LOLsuits VI. Or VII. Or VIII.
