The way not to be involved is to not be involved. Acting as The Dread Pirate Kimberlin’s PR flack, posting dark hints about coming events, and posting advance copies of court filings all tend to show a connection to TDPK as an agent, employee, and/or co-conspirator.
I have no firm plans about exactly how I will mount my defense of the suit, but I won’t be surprised if one or more of the defendants were to join Schmalfeldt as a party to the suit in their counterclaims. I’d say that the Cabin Boy is already in up to his neck—if he had one.
There’s a proverb about lying down with the dogs and being bitten by fleas.
UPDATE—The Cabin Boy might want to spend a while meditating on the possible relationships between some of the images he has posted on the Internet of late (especially images of Ali Akbar or me) and the RICO statutes 18 USC 1961, et seq.
