Today is the tenth anniversary of the first post about Brett Kimberlin here at Hogewash!—a post titled No Thugs Zone.

Fellow blogger and Maryland resident Stacy McCain has had to move his family out of the state because of threats related to blogging about Brett Kimberlin. He is not the only blogger suffering abuse from Kimberlin.
Mr. Kimberlin was unwise in choosing to pick a fight with the blogosphere. He is likely to find that, while we don’t always agree with one another, we have each other’s backs when the freedom of the Internet is threatened. Mr. Kimberlin and those who have supported him (I’m looking at you, Ms. Streisand [dead link, but here’s one to a contemporaneous post by another blogger]) have bitten off more than they can chew. The pushback is just beginning.
UPDATE–The McCain family is having a ton of unforeseen expenses because of their sudden move. I just hit his tip jar. Why don’t you?
UPDATE 2–Expect more, a lot more, about this on Friday.

I’m not done with him yet.
