Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Bullies always whine when they are confronted. They don’t think it’s fair when you hit them back, and indeed, Bill Schmalfeldt was very cross when a court held him accountable for his harassment of me and ordered him to stop. This post called A Snapshot of My Twitter Mentions from five years ago today dealt with some of his whining about that first peace order.

I’m told that Bill Schmalfeldt is now claiming that I’m crazy because he thinks I follow his every word. I don’t, but I do see all of the tweets he sends me. (Click the image to embiggen it.)@wjjhoge_Mentions201311111420Z@WMSBroadcasting is one of Schmalfeldt’s Twitter accounts.

The Cabin Boy seems to think that I’m under some obligation to block him on Twitter. He has things backwards. The peace order issued against him says that he is supposed to avoid contacting me. If that isn’t convenient for him, too bad.

OTOH, I am free to look at his writing, and I occasionally do. The Cabin Boy sometimes writes things in which I have a legitimate interest. For example, Schmalfeldt’s rantings have been a source of leads for the legal team supporting the defendants in the various vexatious lawsuits filed by Brett Kimberlin.

Meanwhile, the adjudicated and confessed harasser keeps flouting that peace order.

UPDATE—Confessed harasser? Yep. He confessed. He posted this email on Twitter last August.BSemail2SAO

As can be seen in the BCC line of that email, the Cabin Boy™ isn’t too sharp on OPSEC either. That gave away … well … let’s just say there were folks who found useful information in that email address.

Yeah, That’s Right! Poor OPSEC!


After being tipped of about this Tweet …i94radio201510300218Z… I was reminded of this post—

OPSEC

I especially remember one particular breach of OPSEC in Viet Nam. There was a major who thought that he was too important to have to bother with the rules. One day, he got in a hurry and decided that he didn’t have to get up and walk a couple of hundred feet to where an encrypted radio was installed. He used the radio in his jeep to send a very brief message that would have no tactical value after about a half-hour. The VC were listening, they figured out what was going on, and—15 minutes later—a landing zone took mortar fire just as a general’s helicopter was landing. There were no casualties, except for that major’s career.

Here’s another example of poor OPSEC. pbrstreetgang.org is one of the domains associated with others owned or controlled by Team Kimberlin. Bill Schmalfeldt published an email with this header just over a week ago. The version below has part of the Bcc line redacted. The original doesn’t. Can you bust someone back to a rank lower than Cabin Boy?BSmailheader

UPDATE—Several people have wondered how I received an email not addressed me. I didn’t. A .png image of the email was published on Twitter.confessiontweet

About ten hours after that post went up here at Hogewash!, all of the Kimberlin-related websites went down for several days. When they came back, pbrstreetgang dot org had moved to another server and was no longer being used as a name server for Kimberlin-related sites.
