Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

I was the first of several people to hold Bill Schmalfeldt accountable for his cyberthuggery and harassment undertaken on behalf of Team Kimberlin. The Cabin Boy™ and his enablers tried multiple times to spin Schmalfeldt as a victim rather than perpetrator. This I’m Not Making This Up, You Know post from eight years ago dealt with one of their lamest attempts. The email was sent a week before the hearing that resulted in the original peace order granted against Schmalfeldt being extended.

* * * * *

I have just received the following email—

Matt Osborne
To: hogewash@wjjhoge.com
Legal Notice

Dear Mr. Hoge:

As Section 3-803 of the Maryland Criminal Law Code allows for a person to make such a request on behalf of another, I am officially and legally asking you to cease and desist all harassment of William M. “Bill” Schmalfeldt of Elkridge, Maryland. This includes referring to Mr. Schmalfeldt by such derogatory and defamatory “nicknames” as “Cabin Boy” or “Oedipal Bill” or anything other than his actual name. This includes the filing of any additional frivolous charges against him. Mr. Schmalfeldt can not preclude you from writing about him, but he considers derogatory nicknames, especially when they are spread by your followers all over the Internet, to be a textbook definition of harassment. Also, as all your previous criminal charges against Mr. Schmalfeldt have been dismissed by the Carroll County, Maryland, State’s Attorney, but you continue to file charges with the expectation that the outcome will somehow be different, Mr. Schmalfeldt considers the continued filing of these charges as harassment and demands that you cease at once.

Failure to abide by this request will be seen as a violation of the above named section, and you can expect Mr. Schmalfeldt to take appropriate steps.

Sincerely,
Matt Osborne

I will have no comment on this until after I have consulted with counsel.

UPDATE—After consulting with counsel, I choose to hold my response until 9 December.

* * * * *

Of course, even if Osborne’s claims were true, none of the acts complained of in that email were possible triggers for a Maryland peace order.

BTW, 57F Matt Osborne’s (a)osborneink Twitter account is still suspended.

Seven years ago, someone had had enough of Bill Schmalfeldt’s BS, and that person placed an order with a company in Europe that mails packages of manure. The Cabin Boy™ went ballistic, threatening the direst of dire direness to whoever placed the order. This Bonus Prevarication Du Jour from seven years ago today, pointed out that Schmalfeldt was simply wrong about the facts and the law related to the gift he received.

* * * * *

CBPR201411300042ZPerhaps Tupperware isn’t allowed, but zip-lock bags are apparently OK packaging for manure sent through the mail.

A simple bit of googling shows plenty of companies offering to sell various kinds of manure with shipping via U. S. Mail. It’s most commonly offered by businesses catering to mushroom growers who only need small quantities for use as fertilizer. BTW, horse manure seems to be preferred for mushrooms.

UPDATE—OK, let’s assume that the Cabin Boy™ files a complaint with the Postal Inspection Service. So what? The only result will be that there’s one more government office where eyes roll when they hear the name Schmalfeldt.

* * * * *

I will simply point out that Amazon sells manure, and many small quantity orders are delivered by the USPS.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Team Kimberlin often projects their own motivations and behaviors on to others. For example, they claim that others are victimizing them with “false narratives” when it is they who tell lies and engage in forgery and perjury.

Speaking of false narratives, here’s one that Bill Schmalfeldt published during one of his turns as editor of Breitbart Unmasked four years ago today.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Even after being told that there was no “journalism” exception to the Maryland peace order statute, Bill Schmalfeldt continued to contact me. He then tried to claim his use of Twitter wasn’t a form of contact. This Prevarication Du Jour from eight years ago today dealt with one of his attempts to spin The Narrative in his own favor.

* * * * *

Bill Schmalfeldt thinks he’s found perjury in the Applications for Statement of Charges that I have filed.WMSBroad201311211303Z

He must not have looked very hard. The second tweet listed in the first Application appears to be his part of this exchange taken from the @LobotomyRadio timeline.LR201310220101ZThat’s pretty good evidence that the Cabin Boy sent his tweet by clicking the Reply button at the bottom of @LNSmithee’s. Here is Twitter’s definition of a @reply:Twitte_@replyThus, we see that my allegation that Bill Schmalfeldt was using both @mentions and @replies is supported by evidence.

UPDATE—Yes, indeed, Gentle Reader, the Cabin Boy wants us to believe that he didn’t use the reply button on this tweet to generate his tweet addressed to the accounts in the Reply to line shown here. @LNSmithee201310220100ZDo you believe that it’s just a coincidence that the addresses on the Cabin Boy’s tweet are exactly the same accounts in exactly the same order with exactly the same capitalization as would have resulted from hitting the Reply button on the tweet he was commenting upon?

Neither do I.

* * * * *

Schmalfeldt managed to pick up a dozen restraining orders in five states before he decided to give it a rest.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Here’s a status report on some of the members of Team Kimberlin.

The Dread Deadbeat Pirate/Pro-Se/Publisher/Performer/Perjurer/Etc. Kimberlin is keeping a low profile on the Interwebz. Almost all of this web domains haver disappeared. With a couple of exceptions, what little remains hasn’t been well maintains for years. He’s been in court over the past few years in a frivolous attempt to overturn some of his Speedway Bombing convictions and has a couple appeals going in the Seventh Circuit.

First Mate Neal Rauhauser missed his million-dollar payday in Texas and is still hiding.

Cabin Boy Bill Schmalfeldt has finally managed to hold a job past the probationary period and is working as the morning DJ at a small town AM station that is not authorized to operate with as much transmitter power as my ham radio station.

57F Matt Osborne has managed to get himself permanently banned from Twitter.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Copyright law has not been kind to Team Kimberlin, especially Bill Schmalfeldt. The TKPOTD for four years ago today dealt with one of the many times his lack of understanding hurt him.

* * * * * * * *

Gentle Reader, that reminds me of this post On Copyrights from 24 November, 2015—

* * * * *

I was rereading Confessions of an Undercover Internet Troll, and noticed something interesting about how the blog described in the book got started. The character known as Hoggy hired the author to write the blog, offering to pay him with a cut of money raised via Hoggy’s tip jar. If that’s true, then all of the TMZ blog posts contained in the book should be work-for-hire and, therefore, should belong to Hoggy.

Hmmmmm.

UPDATE—After my conversation with CreateSpace this morning, this is what searching for the Cabin Boy’s™ book turned up on Amazon at 12:15 ET this afternoon.Amazon_Confessions_20151124

Hmmmmm.

* * * * *

A man’s got to know his limitations.

* * * * * * * *

Self-awareness isn’t one of their strong points, is it?

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The post about Why I Blog first ran four years ago today.

* * * * *

Because I want to.

More specifically, I took up blogging as a hobby when I was in my mid 60s and approaching retirement. I thought it would be an interesting way to use some of the time that would not be taken up by a day job. I decided to write about stuff that interested me, and if some folks wanted to read it, then the blog would pick up followers. I didn’t expect to monetize the blog.

One of the things that interests me is First Amendment issues, and writing about one incident wound up changing the nature of Hogewash!. That incident was the patently unconstitutional gag order that Brett Kimberlin received against Aaron Walker. It was a local story, so I covered it. And I kept covering The Dread Deadbeat (Pirate) (Performer) (Pedo) Pro-Se Kimberlin as he waged lawfare against various bloggers and mainline media people and organizations who wrote about him. That, in turn, made me a target of Kimberlin and his fanboys, especially Bill Schmalfeldt, and their targeting of me made me part of the story I was covering.

Things haven’t worked out as I expected when I stated Hogewash! in 2011. For the past five years, the bulk of the blog has dealt with Team Kimberlin. That coverage has caused multiple lawsuits, false criminal charges, and a bogus peace order petition to be filed against me, and I’ve monetized the blog to help defray the legal expenses incurred. (BTW, thank you to those who have supported that effort.) While that lawfare is mostly over and settled in my favor, there’s still some to go. Eventually, TDPK and his band of cyberthug wannabes will have lost their final bit of lawfare and will have poisoned their own online reputations via a version of the Streisand Effect on steroids that should be renamed for Brett Kimberlin. Then, I’ll be able to get back to spending more time on other things that interest me.

Oh, two more things …First, it looks as if enough Reality has sunk into the vacuum between the Cabin Boy’s™ ears that he is starting to understand that is more likely that LOLsuit VIII will be dismissed than survive.

Second, the only online use anyone has for Bill Schmalfelt now is as an object of pointage, laughery, and mockification. I will continue to write about him to the extent I find it useful as coverage of Team Kimberlin winds down, but there are now blogs that specialize in keeping track of him, and they are welcome to him.

* * * * *

Yes, I’m still doing these TKPOTDs. While Kimberlin’s presence on the Internet has deteriorated to a handful of irrelevant wastes of bandwidth, he’s still engaging in lawfare in the form o his specious appeals of some of his Speedway Bombing convictions. And not every loose end of the previous decade has been tied up yet.

I’m not done with ’em yet.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

The Gentle Reader who has heard any of the alleged music created by Team Kimberlin (Bill Schmalfeldt’s parody songs, Brett Kimberlin’s music videos, or Willam Ferguson’s technocrap) may find it difficult to believe that there have been occasional bits of good music associated with The Saga of Team Kimberlin. Seven years ago today, I ran this post about The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.

* * * * *

Last night, I was running iTunes in random mode when The Sorcerer’s Apprentice by Paul Dukas came up. The first time I can remember hearing that piece was when I saw the movie Fantasia at the Tennessee theater in downtown Nashville back in the ’50s. The work is a symphonic poem that tells the story of Goethe’s poem Der Zauberlehrling. You probably know the story: Rather than do his chores the old fashioned way, a young apprentice tries to use magic. He loses control of his enchanted broom but is saved in the end when his master returns and sets things right. Mickey Mouse plays the apprentice in the Disney version.

But back to my story …

I didn’t initially realize what was playing in the background because I was concentrating on writing today’s Team Kimberlin Post of the Day. When I did notice the music, it struck me as somewhat related to what I was writing. The post was about Bill Schmalfeldt’s bumbling attempts at lawfare. He’s tried to use lawfare as an easy pushback against the various attempts to hold him accountable for his online harassment and cyberthuggery. Yet, each time he tries something, the legal waves break higher and higher against him.

One wonders—will his master save him?

Probably not.

His master has been no more successful in the long run with his lawfare. Team Kimberlin’s performance, by master or apprentice, can’t even be described as “mickey mouse.”

* * * * *

Yeah, Acme isn’t a Disney thing, is it?

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Team Kimberlin’s lack of respect for copyrights has caused them more than a little bit of trouble. One particular copyright was the center of over a year’s worth of brouhaha involving Bill Schmalfeldt. In Today’s Mailbag (today being seven years ago), I found a document that settled the question of who had registered that copyright.

* * * * *

The Gentle Reader who followed the copyright infringement brouhaha with the Cabin Boy™ earlier this year may remember that The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt questioned whether or not I had applied for copyrights and if my claims were valid.Registration

* * * * *

Nothing has ever proceeded as the Cabin Boy™ hallucinated.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

It was eight years ago today that I posted about Team Kimberlin’s crackpot legal theories being advanced to support Bill Schmalfeldt’s attempt to get the first of a dozen restraining orders overturned. The running gag here at Hogewash! has been that Team Kimberlin get their legal advice from the same company that sells all those fine products to a certain coyote. No matter how hard Acme Law Fights Back, Reality keeps crushing Team Kimberlin in court.

* * * * *

Apparently, Acme Legal is trying to find a way to combat the dreaded res judicata.Acme-Disintegrating-Pistol

* * * * *

No wonder Brett Kimberlin keeps asking for a court to appoint a real lawyer to handle his Speedway Bombing appeals.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

From time to time, Brett Kimberlin would offer rewards of $100,000 or more for information about election fraud or other things his not-for-profits were “investigating.” Bill Schmalfeldt also offered fake rewards, but they were never so grandiose. Six years ago today, I claimed one the Cabin Boy’s™ reward, but he reneged on the offer.

* * * * *

wms201511060015Zwms201511060017ZI hereby claim half the reward. The other half should go to Brett Kimberlin for outing me in his Kimberlin v. Team Themis, et al. RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit complaint.ECF 1-58

I should get my share for verifying my address and phone number. They are are 20 Ridge Road, Westminster, Maryland  21157, and (410) 596-2854. Since I don’t have a SEEKRIT SITE, I cannot provide a non-existent password.

Failure to pay the reward forthwith will be considered proof by the Cabin Boy™ that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin is lying in his complaint.

UPDATE—rsmccain201500060103Z

UPDATE 2—The Cabin Boy™ has verified in a comment below that he won’t honor his reward offer. Furthermore, under the conditions outlined above, he appears to confirm that Brett Kimberlin lied in his RICO 2 complaint.

UPDATE 3—Perhaps the Gentle Reader is wondering why the Cabin Boy™ offered the reward. One might guess that he feels flush with insurance cash, but I don’t think that’s the reason. I think he’s taken a page out of the Team Kimberlin playbook of offering a reward with no intention of paying. I’ll bet he believes that the “reward” gives him a basis for saying that some anonymous person ratted out [insert harassment target’s name here] as Krendler and that it provides cover for his next faildox.

* * * * *

In fact, Kimberlin was lying. I am not now and I have never been Paul Krendler.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

It was eight years ago today that I was able to publish this post In Re Schmalfeldt v. Hoge.

* * * * *

The Maryland Court of Appeals has denied Bill Schmalfeldt’s petition for a writ of certiorari. This leaves the peace order issued against him in place.

* * * * *

And so with the able assistance of my lawyer Zoa Barnes I was able to be the first of several people to hold the Cabin Boy™ responsible for his cyberthuggery.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the false claims made by Team Kimberlin was that it didn’t exist. Of course, it did—as their own Internet postings demonstrated. Eight years ago today, I ran this post titled No Team Kimberlin, Huh?.

* * * * *

One of the reasons that Brett Kimberlin is suing my codefendants and me for a million bucks is because we write of the existence of a group of people we call Team Kimberlin. It seems that The Dread Pirate Kimberlin believes the mere suggestion that he has influence over a band of Internet thugs is defamatory or libelous or constitutes mopery with intent to lurk. He would have you believe that there ain’t no such thing as Team Kimberlin.

AcmeLegalBriefsSomeone should tell Cafe Press and whoever is running Breitbart Unmasked these days.

And there’s no connection between TDPK and Cabin Boy Bill Schmalfeldt other than the bond of friendship. It’s a coincidence that the Amazon shopping links at Breitbart Unmasked benefit parsbilswhohom-20 (aka Bill Schmalfeldt).

So Team Kimberlin must be a creation of the warped mind of the crazies in Team Lickspittle—just as the members of Team Kimberlin if you don’t believe it.

* * * * *

I’d like to thank the Gentle Readers who have also been a part of Team Lickspittle. Team Lickspittle goodies are still available at The Hogewash Store.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Over the years, I’ve lost count of the times Team Kimberlin has forecast the direst of dire direness would befall me in court. Eight years ago today, Bill Schmalfeldt’s motion to modify the peace order issued against him was denied, and I published this post about his False Prophecies.

* * * * *

Bill Schmalfeldt is a false prophet, or perhaps I should say he has a rather poor record of predicting my future.prophecy1As Judge Stansfield told him, the things already decided by the Court weren’t up for review in a motions hearing. Res judicata and all that. And the 24 alleged perjuries in my lawyers answers to his motion were never discussed. My disagreement with his point of view did not constitute perjury, and, even if it did, it wasn’t relevant to his motion.prophecy2Schmalfeldt seems to be confused about the relationship between civil torts and crimes. There was essentially no chance of my being arrested today.prophecy3I pointed out in an earlier post that I already have a nice pair of Smith & Wesson Stainless handcuffs left over from previous employment. I really do. I found this old picture of them.cuffsUPDATE—To answer inquiries, it’s a Colt Detective Special (Third Model).

* * * * *

BTW, that peace orders was the first of dozen restraining order the Cabin Boy™ collected in five states.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

This Prevarication Du Jour dealt with one of the many false forecasts of the direst of dire direness looming ahead for the defendants on the first of Brett Kimberlin’s LOLsuits. It first ran eight years ago today.

* * * * *

ftrrnews201310111937ZCutting my own deal am I? Well, Gentle Reader, I did offer Brett Kimberlin a cheap way out of his Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit. He opted not to settle, so my lawyer has filed an answer to his complaint.

I have no intention of conducting my defense of the suit on the Internet, but items filed as part of the court docket become public documents unless they are sealed. Since anyone who goes to the courthouse can get a copy of a docket item for fifty cents per page and since the truth is on my side, I will, at least for the time being, post my filings to save folks the trip. I’ll delay the postings to allow time for any other party to receive service before anything appears online.

I do not plan to have any comments on filings when I post them. To do so could give away information on my counsel’s legal strategy which would be useful to the other side.

* * * * *

He really should have taken my settlement offer.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

I’ll say one thing for Team Kimberlin—their general ineptitude has made it easy to make fun of them. This post from eight years ago today snickered at Bill Schmalfeldt’s silly claims to be ethically engaging in Peaceable Journalism.

* * * * *

LG201302201107Znet_trollBill Schmalfeldt keeps going on about how what he has done and is doing is a “peaceable activity” and “journalism.” He ignores that the Circuit Court examined the evidence that he presented with the assistance of able counsel and found that he was engaging in harassment instead. That’s now a matter of legal fact that is not subject to being relitigated. Bill Schmalfeldt has been adjudicated as a harasser. Period.

The Cabin Boy isn’t a journalist. He’s a troll, and not a very good one at that.

Whiner.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Before it went quiet, Team Kimberlin’s PR operation was constantly predicting the direst of dire direness would befall those of us opposing them in court. Bill Schmalfeldt’s silly rants predicting my being led away in irons from a hearing scheduled in October, 2013, was one example. Eight years ago today, I posted these Quotes of the Day to poke fun at him.

Stacy McCain maintains that Bill Schmalfeldt is a deranged cyberstalker. Eight years ago today, Schmalfeldt’s behavior led me to consider Maybe McCain is Right.

Stacy McCain says that Bill Schmalfeldt is a “deranged cyberstalker.” I published a post at 9:33 this morning, and the Cabin Boy had this tweet up 10 minutes later.frr201309301343Z

Eight years ago today, I was about half way through my first retirement. As a retiree, I was welcome at technical presentation at Goddard. Since then, I’ve gone back to work, retired a second time, and gone back to work again.

As of this writing, don’t know if the next few days will have some unscheduled time off.

Stay tuned.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the ways Team Kimberlin demonstrated their utter impotence was by the plethora of empty threats they made against me and my coverage of their activities. These posts from eight years ago cite a trifecta of examples. The first came from Bill Schmalfeldt, and my response was “Go Ahead, Make My Day.”

* * * * *

I wonder if he’ll get this published before they fire him again.fsl201309230208Z

* * * * *

When it turned out that the Cabin Boy™ got fired that very day and he wouldn’t have a venue for his exposé, I said, “I’ll Just Have to Wait.”

* * * * *

BL201309231518Z

boyscoutpopcornIt does look like I won’t be seeing that exposé about me in The Examiner any time soon.

The Cabin Boy seems upset with the day’s events. It may be interesting to see how he acts out.BL201309231520ZUPDATE—Stacy McCain weighs in here. Money quote:

Bad things are going to happen to us — Bill says he knows this — but he is “not responsible” for it? Of course, there are those who believe Bill Schmalfeldt is quite literally insane, so in a sense, he isn’t responsible. But I don’t think he meant it that way.

Read the whole thing.

* * * * *

And finally, The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin issued his own hollow threat, to which I also replied, “Go Ahead, Make My Day.”

* * * * *

Brietbart Unmasked, who was put on notice to stop contacting me on 15 February, and who continues to do so in violation of Md. Criminal Laws §3-803 and §3-805, sent me the following tweet this evening:BU201309232320Z

Fine. Charge me. I will have a Sixth Amendment right to confront my accuser. That means that if @BreitbartUnmask won’t reveal his identity, the charges get dropped, and if he does reveal his identity, he can rest assured that I will file harassment charges for his continued contact with me.

Perhaps he shouldn’t be getting his legal advice from Acme.

* * * * *

Losers.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Four years ago yesterday, I republished the 2012 review Mrs. Hoge and I did of The Deadbeat Performer Kimberlin’s album Nothing Else. One of the comments really bothered a coupe of members of Team Kimberlin, and their grumbling on Twitter led to the TKPOTD that ran four years ago today.

* * * * *

Yesterday’s TKPOTD must have stoked some envy out in Sutter County, California. Very Ordinary Seaman Ferguson had this exchange with the Cabin Boy™ yesterday—

I’ve never heard lorddewclaw play either live or on a recording, so I can’t comment on what kind of musician he is. However, I have heard recordings that VOSF has posted of his alleged music. Based on what I’ve heard, I doubt that he could have made it as a sideman on any of Brett Kimberlin’s recordings. I’d advise him not to give up his day job, but I’m not sure he has a real one.

* * * * *

Losers.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

One of the problems that Team Kimberlin has had trying to sell their narratives is that they are such incompetent liars. The TKPOTD for eight years ago today cited on example.

* * * * *

Cabin Boy Bill Schmalfeldt has brought back his patriot-ombudsman dot com site again. My first reaction was to start a betting pool for how long it stays up this time.

Aside: At this point, the Gentle Reader may be saying to himself, “Wait a minute. Hoge said he doesn’t enjoy mucking about reading Schmalfeldt’s stuff. How does he know about this zombie site?” A fair question deserves a fair answer. He sent three comments from his site to Hogewash! just after 11 am, yesterday.

He’s posted a piece by Xenophon about Stacy McCain, and in that post she says this about me—

But William Hoge picked his own fight with Schmalfeldt, and offers no evidence that he was ever harassed by him.

Sigh. More nonsense. “… offers no evidence that he was ever harassed by him.”

Gentle Reader, if I offered no evidence of harassment, upon what did Judge Stansfield base his findings in the Hoge v. Schmalfeldt peace order case? I offered evidence in the form of tweets which the Cabin Boy authenticated as being his. I offered evidence in the form of my testimony. Furthermore, the evidence Schmalfeldt placed before the judge tended to corroborate my case.

I offered evidence, and the judge found that Schmalfeldt did engage in harassing me. That’s a settled matter of legal fact now. Team Kimberlin should stop lying about it.

* * * * *

The Truth is out there, but Team Kimberlin rarely stumble across it.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

11 September, 2013, fell on a Wednesday. On that day I post about why I Couldn’t Live in a Place That Small.

* * * * *

SiteSuckerI had budgeted Tuesday of this week as a prep day for being in court today. I had planned to spend yesterday reviewing the claims that Cabin Boy Bill Schmalfeldt had been making in order to have cogent responses for questions that might come my way at the trail. Even though the charges were dropped, I poked around some of the posts he’s had up on his sites, including the defunct ones. They’ve been archived. SiteSucker is a neat tool.

I’m not a gulton for punishment. I’ve tried to spend as little time as possible mucking about Schmalfeldt’s ravings, so, yesterday, I found some surprisingly … what’s a good word? … stupid? … bizarre? … wacko? … yeah, wacko … some surprisingly wacko stuff in his posts about the Maryland v. Schmalfeldt cases.

We’ve dealt with his lame excuses for @mentions and his lies about nefarious characters tricking him into @replies. Enough of that, already.

Let’s look at how he has gone on about hashtags. One of the things I complained of in my first Application for Statement of Charges was that he was using hashtags on Twitter as a surrogate way of addressing me. Here are my exact words:

Additionally, Schmalfeldt attempted to contact me indirectly by including #wjjhoge within a series of addresses in other tweets. Use of # (called a “hashtag” on Twitter) causes the message to archived under the subject of the hashtag. #wjjhoge tags tweets to an archive associated with my name.

It is not the use of a hashtag per se but Schmalfeldt’s particular and peculiar use a hashtag in a line of addresses that is the basis of my complaint. Now, see how the Cabin Boy twists that. In his A Picture is Worth 260 Blog Posts rant that he put up at 8:32 Monday evening on fighttherightradio dot com (now taken down), he wrote about

hashtag mentions of #BillSchmalfeldt, which Mr. Hoge SWORE UNDER PENALTY OF PERJURY he believes are a backdoor way of attempting to contact me.

Huh? Once again, I have never claimed that the simple use of a hashtag on Twitter should be considered an attempt to contact the person who is the subject of the hashtag. What I asserted was that including a hashtag within a list of addresses was an attempt by the Cabin Boy to find a work around for his fixation with @mentions so that he could contact me without violating what he imagined the terms of the peace order to be. He sent tweets like this one, for example:

RadioWMS @cgable63 <– @AaronWorthing #wjjhoge @Kimberlinunmask @Patterico @rsmccain @Stranahan would he do that?// I am the father of your children.
7:07 PM – 6 Jul 13

That’s a subtle, but quit different, use of the hashtag compared to this, a more usual use—BSandChildPornFor the record, Schmalfeldt did eventually denounce child porn.

Do you see what he’s done? He lied about what I wrote and used that lie to try to hold me to a rule I never endorsed. He used a #wjjhoge hashtag in a odd way a dozen or so times, and I complained about it. That does not provide any justification for his absurd claims about my completely normal use of #BillSchmalfeldt.

And in any case, so what? Since I’ve never engaged in any harassment, I have no restrictions on my speech. The Cabin Boy has been adjudicated as a harasser.

We’ll take a look at some more of his wacko claims in a later post. I’ve had enough for now.

Stay tuned.

* * * * *

My podcasting partner Stacy McCain has used the expression a few fries short of a Happy Meal to describe the Cabin Boy™, but that doesn’t really work as a physical description, does it?

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Team Kimberlin is a bunch of liars, and if the story cited in the TKPOTD from seven years ago is to be believed, they even lie to each other.

* * * * *

My copy of Animus Nocendi, Bill Schmalfeldt’s latest cut-and-paste opus, arrived Thursday afternoon. I’ve read it. It uses some of his old blog posts and various court papers stitched together with a bit of connective text to attempt to tell his side of “the story.” I can’t really recommend it as an accurate, nothing-but-the-truth, recounting of the interactions between him and me over the past couple of years.

He does share one interesting anecdote. At the very beginning of the book, he relates a conversation he had with Brett Kimberlin in which the subject of Kimberlin’s claim of being Dan Quayle’s dope dealer came up. He quotes Kimberlin as saying, “Of all the things I’ve been charged with, that’s the one thing I DID do!” That summarizes the factually challenged nature of the book. Brett Kimberlin was never charged with selling marijuana (or any other drug) to Dan Quayle, and, if Mark Singer’s research for Citizen K, Kimberlin’s authorized biography, is to be believed, he never sold Dan Quayle any dope either. Similarly, many of the events discussed in the book did not actually transpire as Schmalfeldt describes them.

As I said, I can’t recommend Animus Nocendi. Howerver, if you insist on buying a copy, may I suggest that you use the Amazon shopping link on the Home page? I’ll get a cut of the action, and any earnings from sales of the book will be sent to Bomber Sues Blogger. [expired link] to help with the expense of defending against The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin’s vexatious lawsuit aimed at suppressing the First Amendment rights of bloggers.
