The Gentle Reader may wish to take note that while the Cabin Boy™ has blown a lot of smoke about a Brazilian server (which was, in fact, located in Kansas City) and Hurricane Sandy, he has never explicitly denied having made the SWATting threat that I received in October, 2012.
Judge Hecker has denied my request issue a show cause order for contempt to the Cabin Boy™ in the Hoge v.
