UPDATE: Bill visited Billysez last night also. It’s very much worth a visit. Remember of course that Morgana was the target (NOT victim) of very disgusting comments by Bill, and I was faildoxxed by Bill. David E. was doxed and sued by Bill. Hoge…well, there’s a fair amount of history there, too.
Yet all of us, for the time being allow Bill Schmalfeldt a larger audience than he has ever had on his own.
From a comment left here by Bill Schmalfeldt:
Dear Washington Times and Breitbart:
This is a simple request: Stop making me seasick.
Your websites can be useful and moneymaking journalistic institutions, or they can be a rollercoaster ride of popups and sliding text.
Breibart. Jeesh. The whole site slides over for an ad three seconds after I get there. I get it. You want my attention. In reality, the slide is like you’re pulling a book away from my face. Very annoying.
Washington Times: You guys are the worst. This is a screen grab of your site today:
See the words under “ANALYSIS/OPINION”???
That’s called content. The rest of the blinking, overlapping, autostarting mess is not. The stuff on the bottom slides, and changes every few seconds. The AdChoice stuff on the right for Williams Sonoma actually blocks other links to articles. I know you have to make money, and links, popups and other ads pay the bills.
Can you figure out a way to make your website blink, slide and block less?
In this case there are several:
- Hoge will write a book which will outsell even the plagiarized books cut and pasted by Schmalfeldt
- lawsuit about a book, including previous copyright agreements
- Hoge is playing chess vs. checkers
- The old, deleted blogs contain material which demonstrate illegal harassment, plagiarism or funny things
- Mr. Hoge can do whatever he wants with his time, including but not limited to running a blog with a bigger audience than all Bill’s closed up/defunct/spoliated blogs put together

A Second and Final Warning to Bill Schmalfeldt by David Edgren
You can buy a product called Nest Cam, which lets you look in on your house from anywhere in the world.
You can also turn it off. Or can you? (Cue dramatic music!)
The truth is: the Nest Cam is never “off” despite an effort by Nest and its parent Google to make it appear otherwise. That, according to an analysis of the Nest Cam by the firm ABI Research, which found that turning the Nest Cam “off” using the associated mobile application only turns off the LED power indicator light on the front of the device. Under the hood, the camera continues to operate and, according to ABI researcher Jim Mielke, to monitor its surroundings: noting movement, sound and other activity when users are led to believe it has powered down.
The company says there’s nothing to be afraid of. (Cue dramatic music.) But isn’t that always what the company says?
I made up that last bit. Also: I think I have made up a word.
From Yahoo News:
Boston (AFP) – US Secretary of State John Kerry warned Wednesday that the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians is at a “pivotal point” and could worsen beyond repair unless both sides make rapid compromises.
“As you know, we’re very concerned about the violence and the potential for the situation to spin out of control,” Kerry told reporters as he arrived home in Boston after visiting leaders from both sides in Jerusalem.
Taking a deep breath. Visiting my happy place.
Okay: Does he get a newspaper? Has he looked at Iraq? Syria? Does he not understand that nearly 8 years of nincompooping by American community organizers has led to the world on fire?
We didn’t do it all, but we coulda helped stop some of this. Worst presidency ever.
