The basic theory behind Team Kimberlin’s use of lawfare to try to silence their critics was that the uncertainty and expense of litigation would cause the targeted defendants to settle. A few did as business decision to minimize their out-of-pocket costs. Most of us didn’t because we viewed protecting our First Amendment rights as worth the cost and effort. This Prevarication Du Jour from five years ago today dealt with one of Bill Schmalfeldt’s attempts to appear in control of his narrative.

Expensive? No, I’m making out quite nicely on the popcorn sales.

Hogewash! is still here, but Cheddar Injection is long gone. It folded even before the Cabin Boy™ had to leave Wisconsin. He’s been quite mobile for the past few years. IIRC, he’s had to move through an even greater number of states than the number in which he collected restraining orders.
Among the false narratives that Team Kimberlin has tried to peddle are the contradictory stories about the secret identity of “Paul Krendler.” While The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt is usually fixated on the idea that Patrick Grady is Paul Krendler, he has alleged that others (including himself) are The Thinking Man’s Zombie. As the TKPOTD from three years ago today notes, The
Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin, OTOH, has been consistent in his claim that I am Paul Krendler.

I’m reasonably certain that The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt haz sad cuz he didn’t get to ask me under oath about the identity of Paul Krendler.
As I have already said under oath, I don’t know.
In paragraph 58 of his complaint in the Kimberlin v. Team Themis, et al. RICO2: Electric Boogoloo LOLsuit, Paul Krendler is identified as me.
I don’t know who Krendler is, but I do know that I’m not he.

There’s been speculation that the Cabin Boy™ is ginning up LOLsuit IX in a fit of pique over his self-inflicted inability to land a job. If he’s stupid enough to file such a suit, I believe that he’ll find some way to tie Paul Krendler into it. It’s also probably a safe bet that he’d file in the wrong venue, fail to state a claim upon which relief can be granted, and whine when the case is dismissed.
I think so, Brain … but wouldn’t a zombie broadcast be filled with undead air?
I think so, Brain … but if Schrödinger’s cat is both dead and alive, isn’t it really undead and, therefore, a zombie?
I think so, Brain … but can a zombie have a near-life experience?
I think so, Brain … but wouldn’t the zombies go for you first?
I think so, Brain … but that guy has one advantage over most people. The Zombies won’t be interested in him as a source of food.
Yahoo is reporting that the Department of Homeland Security is encouraging people to be prepared for disasters by suggesting they be prepared for a zombie apocalypse. (H/T, Debby Witt).
That’s the title of a paper by Adam Chodorow. (H/T, io9) It examines how tax law might apply to the undead and why someone might choose or not choose to be a zombie for tax purposes. It also considers the possible socially disruptive tax consequences of a zombie apocalypse.
