Before the notice even reached Chris Heather, assumed by this blog’s Best Buddy Bill Schmalfeldt to be Howard D. Earl, Schmalfeldt has dropped his counterclaim against Chris Heather. In a twit posted today, he thanked team Pink Skittle for pointing out the errors to his original Answers and Counterclaims. Let this be a lesson to everyone. Posting information before deadlines have passed is not good for anyone. Even if you have information you think will help a specific party, share it privately. While Howard D. Earl is now in the clear, all that has happened is that publicly shared information has improved Schmalfeldt’s position. Remember the words of Aaron Worthing. Paraphrased. Suit first, internet second.
