One of things that has cause a great deal of trouble for Bill Schmalfeldt is the Cabin Boy’s™ proclivity for sticking his nose into other peoples business. This sometimes happens because his grandiosity leads him think he is being talked about when, in fact, he’s being ignored. As I noted five years ago today, He’s So Vain …

… He actually thought those tweets were about him.
OK, folks, I was hoping to take all of Field Day off, but the stuff I’ve found while checking my email and Twitter timeline during breakfast is simply too strange to ignore. Last night, I checked Twitter during a break and found a tweet from Stacy McCain relating to an article he had posted about the weirdos, bozos, and creeps who form the core of the #FreeKate crowd. I read the article and tweeted a somewhat sardonic response.
Enter Cabin Boy Bill.
Schmalfeldt has a new blog called AaronWorthing. (No, I won’t link to it.) That blog is one of the craziest I’ve ever encountered. Yesterday, his ninth post of the day complained of how Stacy and I were attacking him with those tweets—which aren’t about him.
Now, it is true that the Cabin Boy does act particularly crazy on the Internet, but, unfortunately, he isn’t the only one doing so, and he is not the only crazy person who draws comments from Stacy McCain. Or me.

The Cabin Boy’s™ life would have been much simpler for the last five or six years if he had kept to his own business and left people like me alone.
I’m not done with him yet.
Sergeant Friday and Officer Smith are still away helping with a case in another jurisdiction. Here’s a recycled episode.
MUSIC: Theme. Intro and fade under.
NARRATOR: Ladies and gentlemen, the story you are about to hear is true. The names have been changed to protect the innocent.
MUSIC: Up, then under …

For the next few minutes, in cooperation with the Twitter Town Sheriff’s Department, you will travel step by step on the side of the good guys through an actual case transcribed from official files. From beginning to end, from crime to punishment, Blognet is the story of the good guys in action.

FRIDAY: It was Wednesday, January 11th. It was chilly in Westminster. We were working the day watch out of Internet Detail. My partner’s Liz Smith. The boss is Twitter Town Sheriff W. J. J. Hoge. My name’s Friday. It was 6:47 am when I got to Room S-140. Internet Detail.
I think so, Brain … but have you noticed that so many people with no ideas want to share them with the world.
Judge Loretta Preska of the U. S. District Court for the Southern District of New York has ruled that because the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is unconstitutionally structured, the agency lacks authority to bring an enforcement action pending before that court.
This will be interesting.

Back in 2014, I responded to a Gentle Reader’s request for definitions of certain words and phrases that kept coming up in The Saga of Team Kimberlin with a series called The Dread Pirate’s Dictionary. These definitions were posted four years ago today.
* * * * *
The World’s Worst Pro-Se Litigant™ is Stacy McCain’s way of describing Brett Kimberlin’s legal abilities. While Kimberlin has bragged about filing “over a hundred lawsuits,” he stays quiet about his batting average which would be generously described as being in the range of .020.
A false narrative is any truthful statement about Brett Kimberlin’s past or current activities that would tend to cause a normal individual to be suspicious of him.
* * * * *
When The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt started filing his LOLsuit, I thought that Kimberlin claim to being The World’s Worst Pro-Se Litigant™ might be in jeopardy, but even the Cabin Boy’s™ unbroken record of abject failure doesn’t come close to the decades of failed cases filed by
Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin.
