Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


By this time six years ago, Brett Kimberlin had filed one set of bogus criminal charges (thrown out by the Montgomery County State’s Attorney) and a couple LOLsuits (one state and one federal) claiming that I had done all sorts of bad things by truthfully reporting on his past and present activities. His complaints boiled down to a case of aggravated butthurt, and butthurt isn’t a valid cause of action for a civil suit. So six years ago today, I ran this post about Dealing with Butthurt.

It has come to my attention that there are some folks out there on the Interwebz who are upset by some of the posts and comments on this blog. While Hogewash! isn’t in the business of giving offense for offense’s sake, I do understand that not everyone likes the way this blog covers certain topics.

In an effort to help such people deal with their issues, I’ve included this handy link to Amazon which may help soothe their pain.PreparationH96ct

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


This blog started as a hobby, and I now operate it as an occasionally profitable business. I’ve always written about First Amendment and free speech issues, but when I got involved in writing about Brett Kimberlin’s use of lawfare against bloggers, it turned out that I was able to attend hearings in nearby Maryland courts. As a result, I became one of Team Kimberlin’s targets and part of the story myself. It’s been frustrating and aggravating at times, but there also have been times when Team Kimberlin’s ineptitude has been a source of laughter. This post called Catching Up first ran six years ago today.

Wow! I’ve spent the morning working and not paying attention to the blog or Twitter, and look at all I’ve missed!vbr2014022211640ZI have no idea what the Cabin Boy™ is going on about. It seems as if he’s complaining about some sort of threats. If he really has received credible threats, he should call the cops. If he’s simply trying to stir the pot, he should reflect on Maryland Criminal Law § 9-501 before he gets in over his head.

I may have more to say after I’ve reviewed the comment threads.

Cabin Boy™ Bill Schmalfeldt was definitely a poor choice by The Dread Deadbeat Pirate Pro-Se Kimberlin for a PR flack. His threats of the direst of dire direness always fizzled. Among the sillies were his predictions that I would be arrested and my blog seized because … well, just because. IIRRC, there have only been two occasions where law enforcement agents initiated conversations with me about Schmalfeldt. I was not the target of either investigation. Similarly, when law enforcement agents initiated conversations with me about Brett Kimberlin, i was not the target of any investigation.

When the members of Team Kimberlin find that their outrageous lies have been confronted with contradictory evidence, they often try (and fail) to spin the narrative. Sometimes, they don’t bother, as noted in this Footnote Du Jour from three years ago today.

The Gentle Reader may wish to take note that the Cabin Boy™ did not deny that he engaged in the acts he says his employer questioned him about—in fact, he admitted to them.

* * * * *

Given his recent mobility, it appears the Cabin Boy™ has had a few more questions from employers of late. Iowa, Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, …
