Wow! I was drafting this post for Sunday morning Team Kimberlin Post of the Day and went to check on the status of the threatened Team Kimberlin “parody” sites, and theothermccain dot net was live. I decided to post this early.
Breitbart Unmasked was registered on 13 February, 2012, the same day as unmaskedhosting dot com which was the name server for BU until recently.
unmaskedhosting dot com was registered at 18:37:00. Breitbart Unmasked was registered at 20:06:00. The name server was registered about an hour and a half before the website.
A few days after Brett Kimberlin lost the Circuit Court appeal of his first peace order petition against Aaron Walker, the two domains used to host hate sites aimed at Mr. Walker were created. They remained dormant until late last June. More about that in a bit.
During the second half of 2012, Bill Schmalfeldt began to be overtly associated with Team Kimberlin. He was responsible for the publication of sealed court documents that had been provided to Brett Kimberlin during discovery in the Virginia Walker v. Kimberlin, et. al. lawsuit. The only persons with legitimate access to those documents were court personnel, Mr. Walker, and his lawyers, none of whom are likely sources, and Brett Kimberlin. Around the time of that breach of the court’s seal, Schmalfeldt began writing for Breitbart Unmasked; he became the site’s Editor using one of his many aliases, The Liberal Grouch.
During the first part of this year, Schmalfeldt created four domains that used unmaskedhosting dot com as their name server. BTW, these websites are hosted on the same server as large number of Kimberlin-affiliated sites. Then, in late June, he activated the two Aaron Walker hate sites. Aaron Walker responded by filing an Application for Statement of Charges, and a District Court Commissioner has charged Schmalfeldt with harassment. That brought on one of the Cabin Boy’s meltdowns, and another member of Team Kimberlin who I call “Coleman” took over allergic2bull dot com.
During the first half of July, a couple of events occurred. One was my filing of an Application for Statement of Charges against Bill Schmalfeldt for violating the peace order I have against him. (Although I was expecting a single charge, the District Court Commissioner charged five counts.) The second was the Kimberlin v. Elliott, Elliott v. Kimberlin, and T. Kimberlin v. B. Kimberlin peace order petitions. Two days after the related peace order hearings, the six sites list at the bottom of the table were registered.
Gentle Reader, Bill Schmalfeldt wants us to believe that Brett Kimberlin is just his friend and not a business associate. Do you believe him?
And isn’t this tweet from Saturday morning interesting?
OK, I can understand that these jerks are upset with my shining light in their actions. And I expect some pushback. But the real The Other McCain and ViralRead sites are associated with Stacy McCain. I know Stacy McCain. Picking a fight with him is doubling (or maybe quadrupling) down on stupid.
Here is the post Stacy’s referring to in his tweet.
I can hardly wait to see what those site look like. Will they be as shoddy as the slapdash things that Bill Schmalfeldt has been throwing up (Hey, Schmalfeldt and throwing up in the same phrase—that works!), or will someone with a bit of graphic design talent create them? Because I have other things to do with my life on a Saturday evening, I’m writing this post late in afternoon;
it will autopost at 12:02 am ET on Sunday. So I haven’t seen those sites yet, but if the go live, I’ll do an update. Meanwhile, I’ll just have to wait to see how Team Kimberlin makes fools of themselves this time.
UPDATE—The server that hosts theothermccain dot net is in The Netherlands. Of course, using an off-shore ISP allows Team Kimberlin to avoid having the actual identity of the person or organization responsible for the domain being identified through a subpoena to the ISP.
That’s legal. Cowardly. But legal.
