William M. Schmalfeldt of Elkridge, MD is a Liar.

This was sent to me anonymously.  I find it interesting and compelling.  I’m sure that a few tweets from Mr. Schmalfeldt could clear this up.  Again, neither I nor Patrick Grady wrote this, and it was sent to me anonymously, so I don’t know who the original writer is.  I have my ideas, though.  I’ll add that whoever wrote this was writing before Schmalfeldt left the WordPress platform for the WIX platform, and the page that is in question is no longer is available, because once again in less than a month, Schmalfeldt changed his website, making older posts disappear.  

Post title:  William M. Schmalfeldt of Elkridge, MD Is a Liar

That’s a damn provocative title, yeah?

July 10, 2014, William M. Schmalfeldt of Elkridge, MD published the following at his most recent pre-memory-holed blog (It may be memory holed now, – your host):

20140711-224232-81752040

He says “I haven’t deleted a thing from from Twitter. Sorry. But you’re just wrong.”

No. Not wrong.  Bill is a liar. A lying liar. Who lies. He sucks in fro yo (which almost rhymes with mayo, and is also creamy, gooey and delicious, or so I’ve been told) and vomits intentional falsehoods.  The damn liar.

You see, back on April 27, 2014, Karoli Kuns posted a profile of professional victim (and damn liar) William M. Schmalfeldt of Elkridge, MD at Crooks and Liars (WARNING: this is an INDIRECT link to it).  A friend of mine engaged in a one way Twitter conversation with Karoli later that same day, and he noted, and wondered if Karoli had bothered to note as well, that the Twitter timeline of professional victim and damn liar William M. Schmalfeldt of Elkridge, MD (who was then using the handle @PatOmbudsman, which has itself been deleted from Twitter – can you imagine?) was blank between January 30, 2014 and April 19, 2014:

20140711-231342-83622653

My “excellent friend” found this to be more than strange, this two and a half month gap in the now-deleted timeline (wait – deleted? Hmph. That is strange.) of @PatOmbudsman, a/k/a professional lying victim William M. Schmalfeldt of Elkridge, MD, one of the most prolific Twitter users around.  He found it very strange because he remembered some quite extraordinary activity taking place during that verified and documented “dead period.”  He even had screen caps of the day in February 2014 when the documented liar William M. Schmalfeldt of Elkridge, MD doxed him and publicized it on Twitter (where his handle at that time was @2014Radio – another handle that no longer exists):

20140711-233909-85149642 20140711-233909-85149772 20140711-233909-85149514 20140711-233909-85149389

And he had screen caps of the day in March 2014 when adjudicated harasser and documented liar William M. Schmalfeldt of Elkridge, MD contacted his employer in an obvious and misguided attempt to get him fired:

20140711-234939-85779228 20140711-234939-85779344 20140711-234938-85778995 20140711-234939-85779111 20140711-234939-85779703 20140711-234939-85779586 20140711-234939-85779463

That didn’t work out so well for adjudicated serial harasser, documented, proven liar, serial faildoxer and EPIC practical joke victim William M. Schmalfeldt of Elkridge, MD.

So I wonder…if he “[hasn’t] deleted a thing on Twitter,” and his timeline (for an account which has been, um, well, this is kind of awkward…DELETED) was blank from January 30, 2014 to April 19, 2014, then how can Palatine Pundit have all this documented evidence of tweets authored by adjudicated harasser, documented liar and serial faildoxer William M. Schmalfeldt of Elkridge, MD, concerning things that adjudicated harasser, proven liar and he admits having done (though to be honest he does quibble – merely a lesser form of lying – about his motives), tweets that, according to William M. Schmalfeldt of Elkridge, MD, who has “never deleted a thing on Twitter. Sorry. But you’re wrong,” CANNOT EVER HAVE EXISTED?

Either William M. Schmalfeldt of Elkridge, MD is a liar, or he must provide an explanation.

Now, where did I leave that doom clock?

Who is @pptoas and why is she obsessed with Lynn Thomas?

More importantly, why does she think I’m Lynn Thomas?  I still don’t know who Lynn Thomas is, or why I should care.  But for whatever reason, this @pptoas person, who’s twitter handle is Penny Alesi is absolutely convinced that I’m Lynn Thomas and therefore she spent the last few days twitting about me.  She didn’t @mention me until tonight, so I didn’t know about it.  But now she has @mentioned me, and I’m no closer to understanding what this person wants, what they think I’ve done to her, or anything else!  So I’m pleading with my readers, who the hell is Penny Alesi and who on God’s green earth is Lynn Thomas?  And by all my readers, I include Bill Schmalfeldt.  Since he started doxing me as Lynn Thomas, I’d appreciate if he could come down off his twit festival and seriously answer the question of who the hell Penny Alesi is.

Here’s the first twit I got notified from her.

Screenshot 2014-07-07 20.55.47

Since I have no idea who Penny Alesi is, and have no idea what her beef with me is, I have no idea who she thinks I should apologize to.  I don’t know what she thinks she knows about me, but she’s wrong.  Let me say again, I am not Lynn Thomas and I have no idea who Lynn Thomas is.  But she clearly thinks I’m Lynn Thomas.

Screenshot 2014-07-07 20.56.37 Screenshot 2014-07-07 20.56.09

I have no idea who owns the 4lynnthomas@gmail.com email address is, and have no intention of trying to figure it out, but if Penny Alesi is trying to scare me because she’s found my email address, it didn’t work.  I have no association with that email and never have.  As for the second, that link goes to a page listing the bibliography of Lynn Thomas.  She’s got what looks like some nifty books.  Is she a writer by profession?

Screenshot 2014-07-07 21.15.28

But knowing that Lynn Thomas writes books in the realm of SF/F and Fandom really doesn’t tell me who the heck she is.  And if you’re obsessed with her, I don’t quite get why sending me her bibliography is supposed to convince me of?  Am I suppose to quiver in my boots because you think I edited Chicks Dig Time Lords?  Because really, I don’t care.

Then there is this odd twit.

Screenshot 2014-07-07 21.06.39

I don’t even know what this means.  Nola named on Running Wolf Blog?  What in the world am I supposed to make of that?  I clicked on the link, and it takes me to the nola.com website, and it’s all a list of people graduating from Nunez Community College.  I don’t know where Nunez CC is, and don’t really care enough to look it up.  Even stranger, it’s from 2008.  There is, on the lengthy list, a Kristin Lynn Thomas graduating in some sort of certificate program for applied medical science.  Or something like that.  The point is, I have no idea how this article that originally appeared in the Times Picayune of New Orleans has anything to do with my blog.  It makes no sense at all.

I think it has something to do with my love of wolves, because yesterday there was this twit, but I wasn’t @mentioned in it.

Screenshot 2014-07-07 21.28.42

I don’t know what dots she’s connecting, but she’s kinda scaring me.  The obsession she spends on whoever this is she is talking about is spooky, and I wish she’d move away from me and focus on her real target.  Do real people talk like that?  Oh, and this tweet came out while I was toying with a new theme, the first of two I played with yesterday, and so far I’ve settled on the second.  At least for now.  I know she must be stalking my blog, because this is the next twit.

Screenshot 2014-07-07 21.32.13

Now anyone who has been reading here for any length of time, it is quite clear that all I did is change themes.  Every single one of my 333 posts (I think this will make 334) are still here, going all the way back to August 2008, when I started this blog.  So I’m more confused than ever as to why she’s taking notes & copying to documents for discovery.  Discovery of what?  I haven’t deleted any posts.  And I’ve never once written anything about Penny Alesi prior to this post.  I commented to here once, when she called me out in a post for being Lynn Thomas.  And I laughed at her.  Here’s the exchange that happened on the article I wrote congratulating the defendants on getting so many aspects of the Kimberlin v Walker et al lawsuit dismissed.  Her comment:

Why are YOU so interested in this?

– pptoas in an approved comment on this blog.

And I responded with:

Hey everybody! This is pptoas, who is the first person to accuse me of being Lynn Thomas because she couldn’t follow a couple of simple links! She has harassed me on twitter and now, it would seem she has come here to harass me. Unfortunately for her, it is not her bandwidth, so I’m not going to put up with her weird rambling and lame accusations. Goodbye, Penny.

– me in reply to pptoas comment.

That wasn’t the first time she posted on my blog.  She also sent this comment to my page about why I use the name Running Wolf.

Hey, I know someone else that had that last name. She’s not thrilled that you are using it by the way.

– pptoas in an approved comment on a page on this blog.

And of course, I responded with my usual kid gloves.

I really don’t care what your someone else is. I don’t even know what you mean by this message. Care to explain? Why would anyone care that they have the same last name as me? Are you implying that I’m using a pseudonym? Are you implying that this “Someone” is going to sue me because we have the same name?

More importantly, are you the piece of shit that convinced Bill that I was Lynn? Because not 24 hours after you called me Lynn on Twitter, Bill is calling me Lynn here. And you’re both stupid for even thinking that. Did you bother looking past the last two weeks on this blog? Are you mentally deficient in some way? I ask, because that’s a better answer than you’re just too lazy to take a small peak at just this blog and realize how amazingly stupid such a thing is. So which is it, stupid or lazy? You’ve no problems commenting here about me, my last name, and whatnot, but what about you? Who the fuck are you? Why is your wordpress private? What are you hiding inside that either stupid or lazy head?

– me in reply to pptoas comment

So that’s twice on this blog I’ve denied being Lynn Thomas.  And even faildoxer Bill Schmalfeldt managed to quickly figure out that I’m not Lynn Thomas.  He even admitted it on this Blog.

Mike, I’ve just been looking at your Facebook page. Sent a friend request in fact. I must say, I find your obsession with me baffling. I have nothing to do with you, you have nothing to do with me, and yet you have devoted your blog and your Facebook toward furthering my defamation. Earlier today, someone suggested that you were someone else. But if you are, you have created one dandy second life.

– Bill Schmalfeldt in an unapproved comment on this blog.

He also did it on an approved comment.

I was doing you a favor, Mike. Instead of just taking someone’s word, I did my own checking.

– Bill Schmalfeldt in an approved comment on this blog.

So who’s word was it, Bill?  Could it have been this pptoas person who can’t seem to get it through her head that I’m not Lynn Thomas, have never been Lynn Thomas, don’t know Lynn Thomas, and don’t really care that pptoas is obsessed with Lynn Thomas, except that for some strange reason that I don’t understand, she thinks I’m Lynn Thomas.

But wait!  What’s that at the bottom of my blog?  Is it my About Me widget?  And does it not provide links to my Facebook, Twitter, WordPress and LinkedIn pages?  Which is how Bill “checked up” on me, including sending me a friend request after I’ve made it clear I’d only ever interact with him on this blog.  Suddenly the only thing in my life more creepy than Bill Schmalfeldt is pptoas.  And that’s really saying something.

So pptoas, or Penny, or whoever the fuck you are, here’s your chance.  Say your peace.  Prove to me that I’m not a 6’4″ biker from Alabama, and that I’m this Lynn Thomas person.  And while you’re at it, explain to me who the fuck Lynn Thomas is.  And why I should give a rat’s ass about her.  Or you.  And don’t go all mystical on me like the first time I asked you to explain.  You remember that, right?  You first hit me up on twitter, and I asked you what the fuck you were talking about, and you just gave me a cryptic “oh, you know.”  Thanks for making that crystal murky clear.  So now, try typing it all out, type slow, so I can read it, and tell me exactly what the fuck your beef is with me.

Update
According to this article, Miss Alesi is HIV positive do to Jake Idema. That could explain much of the obsession.

Update II If what i’ve read is true, you have my sympathy, Penny.  But I’m not who you think I am.

Update III Penny, the things I’ve learned tonight, I truly sympathize.  But I’m no friend of Jack, no friend of yours, and no friend of anyone you may know.  Please leave me alone.

Am I getting a visit from a serial twitter from Maryland?

Running Wolf Blog was recently threatened with being charged with a violation of Alabama Code 13A-11-8, the Harassment law.  As this blog has already completely fisked the possibility of being charged under that law, we wouldn’t be Running Wolf Blog if we didn’t look into it further.  After getting a hint or two from our Friendly Neighborhood Lawyer, Running Wolf Blog looked into what would be required for us to be charged with a violation of 13A-11-8.

Side note: the rest of this post will be on the assumption that Running Wolf Blog is, in fact, in violation of 13A-11-8.  Running Wolf Blog categorically denies that anything this blog has published is in any way in violation of 13A-11-8.  We are proceeding with the faulty assumption for the purpose of education on Alabama Criminal Procedure.

Assuming a serial twitter in Maryland did call the Huntsville Police Department and/or the Madison County Sheriff’s department (both of whom can be reached at the non-emergancy line of  256-722-7100 for Huntsville Police and 256-722-7181 for the Sheriff), what exactly would happen?  In short, probably not much.  I’ve heard the serial twitter from Maryland speak on blog radio, and must say given a sympathetic ear, the twitter can be quite persuasive, so this blog will assume that after making the call to the Law Enforcement Office of choice, it is possible that that the serial twitter may just convince an officer to look into it further.  Here is the first roadblock along the way to the arrest of anyone at Running Wolf Blog.

13A-11-8 is a Class C Misdemeanor, and as such a police officer generally can not make an arrest based on the strength of an accusation.  In Alabama, police may only arrest misdemeanor crimes if the misdemeanor is committed in their presence.  There are several exceptions to this rule, as expressed in Alabama Code 15-10-3, the law that covers arrests without a warrant.  One of those exceptions is misdemeanor’s that occur under 13A-11-8.

Oh no, that’s the law Running Wolf Blog is being threatened with!  We better take a closer look at 15-10-3.

(8) When an offense involves domestic violence as defined by this section, and the arrest is based on probable cause, regardless of whether the offense is a felony or misdemeanor.

(b) For the purpose of this section, the following terms have the following meanings:

(1) ABUSE. Any offense under Sections 13A-6-60 to 13A-6-70, inclusive, or under Sections 26-15-1 to 26-15-4, inclusive.

(2) ASSAULT. Any offense under Sections 13A-6-20 to 13A-6-25, inclusive.

(3) FAMILY, HOUSEHOLD, OR DATING OR ENGAGEMENT RELATIONSHIP MEMBERS. Includes a spouse, former spouse, parent, child, or any other person related by marriage or common law marriage, a person with whom the victim has a child in common, a present or former household member, or a person who has or had a dating or engagement relationship.

(4) DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. Any incident resulting in the abuse, assault, harassment, or the attempt or threats thereof, between family, household, or dating or engagement relationship members.

(5) HARASSMENT. Any offense under Section 13A-11-8.

Alabama Code 15-10-3-8.  Emphisis and strike through added by your host for clarity.

So an officer can make an arrest on probable cause without a warrant under 13A-11-8 if, and only if, the parties involve have a family, household, or dating or engagement relationship.  Thankfully, this blog has none of those with the serial twitter from Maryland.

So if the twitter from Maryland was persuasive enough, the officer may launch an investigation, such as reading this blog.  That would be great, since Running Wolf Blog believes our writing stands for itself, but assuming our Maryland based twitter was convincing enough that a dishonest police officer wanted to take the case forward, what would he do?  He would present his case to a Assistant District Attorney, who would then make the decision of whether or not the case is winnable, if the witnesses are reliable, and if after everything else the ADA could present it to a judge to get a warrant.  Running Wolf Blog will not speculate on the likelihood of that happening except to note some fella name’d Slim just left the room.

So exactly how would the serial twitter from Maryland file a charge under 13A-11-8?  It’s really quite easy, all the twitter would have to do is go before a judge or magistrate.  In the county he alleges the the crime took place.  That would be Madison County, Alabama.  Since this serial twitter from Maryland has already threatened a criminal charge against this blog, that must mean he doesn’t intend to violate this blog’s 6th Amendment rights, so the twitter must have already planned on making multiple trips to Alabama the Beautiful, and by multiple trips, I mean that a class c misdemeanor in Huntsville is first heard at the municipal level, and both the defense and the prosecution will get an automatic appeal to circuit court, and with delays, discovery and other pre-trial shenanigans, the serial twitter from Maryland will be spending days if not weeks visiting the beautiful countryside of the Heart of Dixie.

Assuming after his initial visit before a judge a warrant is issued and a prosecutor, after seeing the tweets issued today that confirms, to the detail, my story of yesterday, and finding out that i’ve had next to none direct communication with the serial twitter from Maryland that wasn’t initiated by that individual, decided to prosecute at all.  Did I mention Slim has left the room?

The Right to remain silent…

As I discussed yesterday, one of the great constitutional rights we wall share is the right to remain silent.  It is not a passive right, but a right that must be actively engaged.  There is another aspect of the right that we should consider.

He has the right to remain silent. He lacks the wisdom to do so.

WJJ Hoge in a comment on his blog.

If I were a serial twitter from Maryland who just claimed I was going to file harassment charges against a blogger in Alabama in which the blogger in Alabama has accused me of the production of porn, and has further specified that the term producer in his blog post is being used as the meaning used in Part 2257 of the federal code, then I would probably remain silent about if I had actually done such a thing.  As long as I remain silent, the burden of truth remains entirely on that Alabama blogger.

Of course, if I lack the wisdom to do so, then I may turn to Twitter and issue a serious of twits whereby I claim to have done exactly what the blogger from Alabama claims that I had done in his blog post.  That should make my time on the stand in the Harassment criminal charge against the Alabama Blogger a very interesting time for me.  Gosh, I’d be forced to admit on the stand that what he said is true, and therefore not harassment.  At that point, I wonder how many Prosecutors in Alabama would be willing to move forward with the case and actually bring it to trial?  Over a Class C Misdemeanor, in which the primary witness admits to doing what the primary witness called harassing communication claims that the witness did?  Of course there is the additional hurdle that the Alabama Blogger was communicating about the me, and not to me, but let’s not quibble over unimportant things like the black letter of the law.

It is an interesting thought experiment, but I don’t suggest that it be put to the legal test, since it opens all sorts of nasty doors that have blowback on the serial twitter from Maryland.

Terms of Service and the lies of Bill Schmalfeldt.

It would seem the current line of defense for Bill Schmalfeldt seems to be an attempt to point out that Hoge does the same thing he’s being blamed for.  But that’s not entirely true.  It’s not even mostly true.  I’m not sure that it’s even a tiny smidgen true.

A frequent complaint as of late from Bill Schmalfeldt seems to be Hoge using entire twits (I don’t know why others call them tweets, it isn’t tweeter) on his webpage, and as a result Bill seems to be running around the web pointing out his perceived errors left and right.  I’m not sure if that’s supposed to be harassment or some weird knew legal theory he’s pushing, since “He does it to” is generally not a great legal defense.

But let’s revisit the twits.  Bill has complained that Hoge is using entire twits, which is in the world of Schmaldfeldt, exactly the same thing that Hoge is accusing him of.  Only it isn’t. (I’d love to show you an example, but the last known (by me) Twitter account for Schmaldfeldt has been suspended.)  However, he is wrong.  By posting a twit, Bill gave Twitter and the rest of the world permission to share his twits.

This is from the terms of service on Twitter.

5. Your Rights

You retain your rights to any Content you submit, post or display on or through the Services. By submitting, posting or displaying Content on or through the Services, you grant us a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license (with the right to sublicense) to use, copy, reproduce, process, adapt, modify, publish, transmit, display and distribute such Content in any and all media or distribution methods (now known or later developed).

Tip: This license is you authorizing us to make your Tweets available to the rest of the world and to let others do the same.

From Twitter’s Terms of Service, Term #5

So under your use of Twitter, you give both Twitter and the rest of the world permission to use your twits.

So how does Hoge get to complain about Bill’s twits?  Because Bill doesn’t just use Twittter, he attaches complete or significant portions of blog posts as images.  The fact that Bill can’t see the difference is pretty telling.

Now apparently Bill has also been bothering the copyright holders of YouTube about Paul Krendler embedding a YouTube Video on his webpage.  I don’t know if that’s true, but I’m working on that assumption here.

Yet again…

4. General Use of the Service—Permissions and Restrictions

YouTube hereby grants you permission to access and use the Service as set forth in these Terms of Service, provided that:

  1. You agree not to distribute in any medium any part of the Service or the Content without YouTube’s prior written authorization, unless YouTube makes available the means for such distribution through functionality offered by the Service (such as the Embeddable Player).

YouTube Terms Of Service, Term #4.1

Once again, if the embed option is on at a YouTube Video, then anyone can embed it wherever they like.  Perhaps Bill should spend less time worrying about other people’s actions and spend more time worrying about his own.

More from the Bill.

Despite the fact that this blog’s Best Buddy Bill Schmalfeldt has taken his ball and gone home (allegedly), I will continue to rebut his epically long and completely off topic unapproved comment to this blog.  Here is the latest snippet.

I don’t just believe I was wronged. I was wronged. I stopped addressing Tweets to Hoge as soon as he asked. But Twitter and the Attorney General of Maryland and the State Legislature and US v. Cassidy have decided that TWEETING is not CONTACT. Hoge managed to convince a befuddled old judge that blocking me on twitter was the same as disabling a portion of his internet function or changing his telephone number to avoid telemarketers.

Does that make sense to you? An @ mention that he never has to see if he blocks me, but he chooses to NOT block me and I get a peace order?

Bill Schmalfeldt in an unapproved comment on this blog

I have to say, this is epic stupidity on an epic scale.  I’ve heard what the “real” arguments where in front of the judge, but that’s beside the point.  This is all about what Bill says.  And what Bill says makes absolutely no sense.

Let’s pretend a unfocused cyberstalker in Maryland was harassing me.  This is hypothetical and not based on the real actions of any singular person.  This cyberstalker starts calling my phone a couple hundred times a day.  Should I not get any relief from that?  I mean, every modern smartphone, and no I don’t have a landline, has the ability to block a phone number.  Should I be required to block the stalkers number, or should the stalker be required to shut the fuck up an not contact me?

The law on this is settled.  The victim of harassment should not have to block anything.  After all, once the harasser’s number is blocked, all the harassing asshole has to do is change phones to get around the block.  The victim doesn’t have to do anything, it is the harasser’s behavior that is the problem.

Now let’s move our hypothetical to Twitter.  Twitter’s terms of service make it clear that anytime someone @mentions you, it will be highlighted in your notifications.  It’s a basic function of how Twitter works.  If you don’t want to see the @mentions from someone, you can block them.  But again, if you do all the harasser need do is set up a sock puppet account and it gets through the block.  But in a harassment situation, it should not be the responsibility of the harassed to take action.  It is the harasser that should stop.

Additionally, even assuming that the judge got the law wrong, and on the very weak and specious arguments presented, twitter can not be harassing (that’s a total lie, no court has ever said that.  More later), it doesn’t matter.  When a judge tells you to stop doing something, you best stop.  If a judgement comes down that is wrong, you better abide by the judgement until you convince a higher court that you were wrongfully treated.  That law is just as settled.  When a judge says no, you have to stop until you convince a higher court that the judge was wrong.  You can scream all day long that the judge was wrong, but until you convince a higher court of it, you better abide by what the judge said.

That’s why Aaron couldn’t talk about his issues for a while.  The judge said no, and until Aaron convinced a higher judge that the ruling was wrong, Aaron had to comply.  Bill, on the other hand, has not convinced a higher judge that the judge in the peace order against him is wrong.  His actions created the six month extension. Not anything Hoge did.  Not anything a “befuddled old judge” did.  It was his own behavior, his belief that he didn’t need to abide by what a judge rules, that earned him the extension.

So yea, it makes perfect sense to me that an @mention is contact.  You know before you make an @mention that the person on the other end will be notified about your twit.  You know that by making an @mention that the person will see it.  Expecting the person you are @mentioning to do anything at all to keep from seeing your @mention is single-mindedly narcissistic.  It isn’t the behavior of the victim that needs to change, it is the behavior of the harasser.  And any other view is stupid.

Now, before I go.  Let me address a few additional points.  Bill brings up a lawsuit in support of his claim that Twitter @mentions can never be considered harassment.  Unfortunately for him, he is wrong.  In US v. Cassidy, the court did not rule that Twitter can’t be harassment.  The court ruled that the Federal Law surrounding online harassment was unconstitutionally vague as applied to Cassidy.  That’s not the same as saying the law is unconstitutional, just that as it was applied in this case it was.  I read through the twits that were issued in evidence for the trial, and there were many that did not use an @mention. So there was nothing about the @mention that even applied to the case.  The only thing in question was if the law, as applied, was constitutional.  A court said it wasn’t.

And a state attorney general does not outrank a state judge.  Or a county judge.  Or even a municipal judge.  I’m not even sure he’d outrank a municipal magistrate.  Basically, an opinion of the Attorney General is binding to… the prosecutors of the state.  Not the judges.  A slight nuance of the law, but I think we can all agree that Bill doesn’t really get nuance.

And basically, let’s be honest with each other.  Despite the law, despite the judge, despite the legislature, calling people out in @mentions after they’ve asked you to stop is just creepy.  I know Bill doesn’t understand creepy, but seriously… do grown people really do that?  Seriously, I have to ask, do mature, intelligent people act in such creepy ways.  The man asked you to stop.  More than once.  You keep doing it, just to upset him.  That’s fucking creepy.

Did he really just say that?

So this blogs best buddy, Mr. Bill Schmalfeldt just posted this on his Twitter Feed:

Screenshot 2014-06-01 20.54.58

 

Which I guess is his complaint that he’s been given his Eviction Notice from Blubber Sues Bloggers.  Now Flynn, the host of that website, is a forgiving patient guy.  He put up with a lot of hateful words from Schmalfeldt, but let Schmalfeldt speak his mind as long as he followed the simple rules.  Now, let’s see if there could have been any reason, besides an attack on the constitution, that Flynn might not want to put up with Schmalfeldt any longer.

Could it be that Flynn put up a blog post calling Schmalfeldt out by name, for specific accusations of conspiracy that Schmalfeldt couldn’t back up, and instead of responding to Flynn’s points, Schmalfeldt time in the comment thread  was spent attacking other commenters?  Could that be it?  Could it be that Schmalfeldt continually ignores direct questions put to him in comment threads on the site, instead calling people names and insulting them?  Or could it be something far simpler.  I give you this:

Let’s see, that’s a twit from Schmalfeldt telling Flynn to do a better job of moderating his comments.  Takes a lot of nerve to be the fellow who’s insulting everybody, ignoring commenter questions and ignoring the host to say something like that, but he did.  He sure did.

So maybe, and I haven’t talked to Flynn about it, either on his site or on Twitter (the only two ways I’ve ever talked to Flynn), but maybe good old Schmalfeldt made Flynn go look at his comments and realize that the vast majority of the mess going on in his comment section was being caused by  Schmalfeldt and he did endeavor to make it better.  He removed the person causing the problem.

That’s not an attack on free speech in any way shape or form.  It is a host removing a guest that is no longer welcome because of the way he treats other guests.

Flynn was exceptionally polite to Schmalfeldt.  Schmalfeldt wore out that niceness.  Schmalfeldt had to go.
