Ten years ago today, I’d been on the Kimberlin story for less than two months, but it was already complicated enough that I published this Cliff’s Notes Version of the saga.

Patterico has an excellent summary of the saga thus far.
Many people have asked for a basic and relatively brief summary of the events surrounding Brett Kimberlin, Neal Rauhauser, and Ron Brynaert — who have gone after critics with over-the-top harassment. I provided the long version of the story, with much of the supporting evidence, here. This is the shorter version. If you have been struggling to understand this story, and you feel like you don’t have the time to follow it all, this is the post for you.
Even if you’ve been following the story all along, reading Mr. Frey’s summary will probably tie up some loose ends for you.
UPDATE–Stacy McCain has this summary of Brett Kimberlin’s background and how he lies about his past.
Lee Stranahan [dead link] calls our attention to Brad Friedman and explains how he fits into the saga.
Aaron Walker documents some of Mr. Kimberlin’s recent lies.
UPDATE 2—And Aaron Walker posts his concise summary here.
