One of the striking things about Team Kimberlin is its member’s belief that they haven’t done anything wrong. Indeed, when steps have been taken to hold them accountable for their actions, they often haven’t claimed that they didn’t do what was alleged but that they were justified in doing it. This post about DABDA from seven years ago shows one example.

That’s a acronym for the Kübler-Ross model for the five stages of grief. Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and Acceptance. Bill Schmalfeldt seems to be oscillating through the middle three. When he pulled the plug on political radio and stopped using @wjjhoge in his tweets, it looked as if he might be moving into the Depression stage, but some of his recent tweets appear to show that he has slipped backward.
I became aware of those tweets when I checked out this link that Stacy McCain sent.
Here’s what I found—So many lies, so little time … I’ll just hit the highlights.
1. I don’t want Bill Schmalfeldt to go to jail for over 350 years, but I do want him held accountable for his harassment. It’s a judge’s job to sort that out, not mine. He is the one who chose to violate the peace order 351 times, to engage in a course of harassing conduct intended to alarm or seriously annoy me, and to do it by means of electronic messages sent to me and received by me. I have merely shown what he has done to the proper authorities.
2/3. I do not recall ever leaving a comment on one of Bill Schmalfeldt’s blogs. Perhaps he is upset because so much of what he publishes makes into my Prevarication Du Jour feature. An easy way to avoid that is to stop lying. If he didn’t want me to know what he was blogging, he shouldn’t have sent me pingback comments or tweets announcing the posts.
4. What makes the Cabin Boy think that I’ve gone to any significant effort to search for his Twitter accounts? There are lots of folks who have been looking for information about him, and some of them share it with me. Of course, it’s trivially easy to do a search for “Schmalfeldt” on Twitter. That returns such interesting accounts as @SchmalfeldtTeam.
5. I prefer not to get into the Cabin Boy’s scatological fixation.
6. I have my reasons.
7. I don’t. However, on any day that I have received a tweet from Schmalfeldt, I have backed up his Twitter account because of his habit of deleting tweets or whole accounts. I’m not the only person who does such logging.
8. If the Cabin Boy believes that I am stalking him, then he probably thinks that Mrs. Walker was stalking Brett Kimberlin when she photographed him stalking her in the parking lot of the Howard County Courthouse. It’s as if he’s saying, “No fair! You’re documenting what I’ve done.”
There’s one other significant, I hope, thing I see in those tweets. They refer to me without using @wjjhoge. Perhaps this means that the Cabin Boy has finally figured out how to write about me without writing to me.
We will see.

The immediate result of the Cabin Boy’s™ behavior was the extension of the peace order. He eventually collected ten more issued in four more states. And he lost LOLsuits I through VIII. Those case are matters of public record.
He now complains that he has trouble passing background checks.
