The Things I Do Are My Fault — With an Update Featuring Bill Schmalfeldt


Bill Schmalfeldt has chimed in below in the comments.  Since I need to do “links,” I’m going to respond at the bottom of this article.  Look for the Bold Type.


For background check out Bill Schmalfeldt Has Agreed to Do the Right Thing or the Schmalfeldtian Dilemma.

ukuleledave@wordpress.com is a No Poop Zone. Thanks.

Suppose every morning, I woke up to find dog poop on my sidewalk.  Sometimes I walk around it.  But it bothers me.

I have two neighbors with dogs.  One is a statuesque blond named Caitlyn.  The other is a former athlete named Bruce.  Bruce wears USA running pants and an old Olympic Team Jacket.  Caitlyn never goes out without a lot of makeup and high heels.  Pretty girl, but not my type.

One night I set up a video camera, and tape what looks like Bruce and his doberman on my lawn.  I can see the dog drop a load.

The next day I chew Bruce’s head off.  Verbally.  From the safety of my livingroom.  I write to the homeowner’s association.  I complain to his boss:”Does your employee Bruce let his dog poop on the neighbor’s lawn, and is that something you approve of?”

The one thing I don’t do is pick up the phone and call Bruce.  A few minutes later I see Caitlyn, wearing her hair under her new hat, wearing a very patriotic USA track outfit, walking her Collie.  The dog takes a dump on my sidewalk.

This is very similar to the treatment of a young man named Vinnie, who Bill Schmalfeldt is convinced — or was convinced — is a part of the horde of internet bullies who keep pooping on his lawn.   Metaphorically.  Now comes these two Tweets:

Somebody Elses Fault

Bill is sure that he was set up to discover Vinnie as a part of a grand conspiracy.

Bill Schmalfeldt is apparently convinced that his boorish behavior is not his fault, but someone else’s.  Now we could show the most empathetic emotional part of our personality, and start to see Bill’s perspective.  He was manipulated.  Again.  For the umpteenth time, somebody fooled him.

It is totally, completely Bill’s fault that he doxxed someone, contacted their employer (he is an intern) and put the guy’s picture on the intertubes.

That same picture has shown up on another website, and I have encouraged the site owner to remove it.  Here is a comment from Bill:

Bill Schmalfeldt says:

Mr. Alexander will recall that I removed the information about “Vinnie” at his polite request, He might want to ask the same thing of Mr, Grady, who posts the lad’s picture on every post. If someone sets up a patsy to take the blame for a crime, it’s not my fault for believing it. Mr. Alexander should show the same level of indignation toward Grady as he did toward me when I removed the info after his reasonable and polite request.

I’m not sure about indignation, but I’m sure about who got this young man involved in this, and there is NO evidence that Mr. Grady, or Mr. Krendler or any of the Lickspittles and Zombies are responsible.  Sure the picture has to be taken down, but Mr. Krendler points out that the worst of it all relates to Vinnie’s employer being contacted.  Can Bill undo that?

Meanwhile, I gotta go clean poop off my lawn and apologize to Bruce.  Because the things I do are my fault.

Update: Bill has asked for some information.   I have reprinted the comments here within the post.

      Someone with a blog identifying himself by name, smearing the memory of my late wife is not innocent. I took your word that Vinnie was set up. Now, if you would be so kind, e-mail the person’s name to me so I can find out if what you’re telling me is true. Thank you.

    I took your word, Dave, that Vinnie was being set up. Just accepted it without question. Took everything down on your word. Now, your boy Grady keeps posting the picture. And someone tries to get my Social Security taken away from me. OK for thee, but not for me? As if it’s OK to fuck with my ability to pay my bills, but it’s not OK to inform the employer of a harasser that their employee is harassing me? The hypocrisy of your group is mind boggling, Dave.

    You say you know who set Vinnie up, and it wasn’t Grady.

    Please give me a name.


My Response:

After careful consideration, I have decided not to give Bill the identity of my confidential source.  The Society of Professional Journalists has many things to say about confidential sources, but primarily I am looking closely at this page, and find this passage important:

Agreeing not to attribute the information to the source and then breaking the promise has two negative consequences for journalists. First, it damages the credibility of the promise-breaker and the media outlet he or she works for. Others with important information may decline to provide information off or even on the record if the reporter is not trustworthy. 

I promised someone anonymity.  I did this because of other factors which I have not shared with you.  My promise had to do with the well-being and physical safety of my source.  (No, I don’t think you’ll do anything.)

Bill’s second comment is very telling.  As far as posting the picture, I have requested that it be taken down.  It has been left up.  I can only be responsible for my own actions, as the title of this post suggests.  This entire issue has been about owning up to one’s actions, statements and behaviors.  It is something I have addressed in previous posts as well.  I am not Krendler.  You’re not even sure Grady is Krendler.  I suspect you’re not even sure one of the Zombies/Lickspittles isn’t Kimberlin.  I sure consider it a possibility.

Hell, I could be Hoge.  Somebody’s got to be.mug

As for the issue with the Social Security Administration, I can only say that I pay into the fund with every paycheck.  I’m on the side of angels here.  I’m sure you can justify everything you’ve told SS about your health and your situation.  Talk to them Fed to Fed. They’ll understand.  I know I never brought to them my concerns about possible SS disability fraud.

As far as “informing the employer of a harasser…” I can’t say I’m sympathetic.  I never harassed you, but you tried hard to find something to report to my employer.  My story is not unique.  As far as Vincent is concerned, it is clear that you are NOT sure he harassed you.  If you were sure, you would have NEVER dropped your Vincent and Charlie stuff from your site and Twitter.  I actually gave you full credit for doing the right thing.  You really do NOT know that these guys have anything to do with you.  But you tried to ruin his work situation.

And then you talk to me about ethics.

On the subject of the hypocrisy of “my group.”  We are individuals with different attitudes, ideas and strategies.  Some are professional, some call you DUMBF–K.  Some carefully weight every word, and some just call you DUMF–K again.

In most cases we are not a group.  Until you started suing them, several people didn’t even know each other’s real names or email addys.  The lawsuit has drawn some people together into a very cohesive team, dedicated to document everything, and I mean everything you’ve said online which does not line up with the truth.  You did this. Just like you did the other things.

This might be the end of our cordial, yet brief agreement about Vincent and Charlie.  I have given you the benefit of the doubt, and you want more.  If you think Vincent and Charlie are actually evil individuals out to smear you wife’s name, I can’t stop you from putting them back up on your side of the internet.  Just remember: You and you alone are responsible for this:

Krendler and Alexander didn’t make you do anything.  Except maybe dance.

Another Update: Bill Visits BillySez:

You want peace? You never mention my wife’s mane in your postings or comments. She never caused any one of you a moment’s harm.

If you want war, ignore the previous paragraph. And if you think “Vinnie” got “doxxed”?

You ain’t seen nothin’ yet, Sarah … David … Dianna … and you, too, Ukulele Man, Pablo, and the various people who believe themselves protected by their “anonymity” No one is anonymous on the Internet.

I haven’t even started compared to what I could do.

Stop. Think. Realize what you are doing. You are intentionally provoking a man with self-control issues related to Parkinson’s disease (impulse control, mostly) who is grieving for his soulmate. If you poke a pit bull with a stick, is it the dog’s fault for biting you?

Where the hell do I start?  Very few people mention Gail Schmalfeldt at all over here, or at Hoge’s place.  Gail Schmalfeldt is not the Schmalfeldt that embarrasses the family.

If I “ain’t seen nothin’ yet,” I really have to wonder what hellfire Bill will bring down from the clouds.  As if he suddenly NOW is FINALLY really angry.  Lighten up, Francis.    You were mad before, you’re angry now, and the only one who can change that is you.  You will do exactly nothing to the people on your list, because there’s nothing meaningful you can do.  I think Maryland has a limit for the number of pointless lawsuits you can file as an indigent pro se….oh yeah.  Not so indigent.

Nobody wants war, but if I have to go to war, please let it be against the likes of you

We are not intentionally provoking…blah blah.  We are refusing to be intimidated by an internet bully.  Your impulse control is your problem, not mine.  The world will not walk on eggshells around you because you are grieving for your soulmate while simultaneously suffering from a disease that others bravely face without complaint.  I certainly won’t.

One more thing about diseases.  We’ve got at least one Lickspittle who was on death’s door last year.  Others who have chronic health issues.  We do not complain.  We don’t blame a disease for our behavior.  There’s a time and a place for that kind of talk.  Tell your doctor.

The worst part of you is not the bullying.  The worst part is your inability to act like a grown man.  Put on your big boy pants and quit whining.  Words hurt you so badly?  They are words.  Men and women who are grown up do not react the way you do.

We’re not poking a pit bull, we’re telling a little boy to go somewhere else.  Stop making your little boy fist, and telling us all how tough you are, and how dangerous you are.  That was cute when you were two, but now you’re north of 60.  Act like it.

Lots of people have tried to give you the benefit of the doubt, but have come to the same conclusion: You truly are not worth it.  Be well.

    FWIW, TMZ doesn’t identify him and there is no context to point to anything about him other than that Dumbass faildoxed him. It doesn’t, for instance, try to contact his employer and try to get him fired or anything.

    Right, Dumabss?

  2. Pablo, you are correct. And although I’d love to see all references to the faildoxx disappear, the head Zombie seems to figure pointing out the faildoxx means posting the picture. I’m pretty close to retiring from this little dust-up. If Bill Schmalfeldt has the contact information for Vincent V., maybe he can try to get Vincent to ask Paul Krendler for to change tactics.

    This entire Schmalfeldt/Krendler/Kimberlin thing is nasty and rude at times. Reason enough for some folks to want to keep their anonymity, and certainly reason enough to try hard not to drag innocent victims into the fray. That’s all on Bill.

      • This Other Latin F*cker says:

        He didn’t identify himself by name. He used first initial and last name. Could be real, could be picked from a phone book, could have been computer generated. The bottom line is you took the flimsiest piece of “evidence” you could find and spun it up to fit your theory. And it doing so you injured innocent parties. But you won’t accept any responsibility for that because to do so would mean you would have to admit being wrong. You have claimed in the past to never have faildoxxed anyone but the Causeys. But we all know better right? But then you shift the meaning of the word ‘dox’ to make it mean what it doesn’t to cover your ass. Bill Clinton would be so very proud of the way you parse your words. “I didn’t dox him because I didn’t release his address and SSN”. No you only release his name, his school, where he works, etc. “I never CALLED an employer to try and get someone fired.” No, you didn’t. You just send multiple emails. Bottom line is that you went off on a wild goose chase that ended up, again, badly for innocent people and you are not man enough to step up and admit it was 100% your fault.

  5. Dave,

    He’s made the assumptions, don’t try and confuse him with the facts.

    Bill,

    I’ve gone to the trouble of setting up some websites, with fake dates going back as far as 18 months, that, should you decide to dox the apparent owners, will lead you to some very, very not-nice people. Suggest you cease your doxxing activities, for your own well-being, as the results are not predictable.

    Be well.

    So, after failing miserably (and criminally, again) again he wants information from you.

    To… Go do, what exactly? Aside from the moral component, I would advise you to be aware of the legal ramifications of “assisting” him in his pattern of behavior.

    Not that it would be his fault y’see.

    • Oh, no. I was trying to assist him to avoid his typical pattern of behavior.

        I’m sure you were.

        Something he never thought about, in his impotent way, is that what he did was already criminal, should Vinnie choose to press the charges. (Gee, that sounds almost .. familiar..)

        When you were discussing why you were keeping your source confidential, you didn’t mention the legal ramifications. In the unlikely case you should have not noticed them, it would be worth mentioning despite any promises you made and/or might break, there’s another consideration.

        Information given to Schmalfedt would surely (for certain readers, remember pattern means repeated) lead to (his) criminal activity, and by assisting, you’d be a potential party. Or, even, shall we say, a “patsy?”

    His premises need checking.
    The offending site (which fwiw, is supremely stupid but insults only Bill, and any negative implication about GS is limited to her being victim of a willing association with himself.)
    1. Has no full name attached to it
    2.may be a pseudonym in the first place and there is good reason to suspect it might well be.
    3. The fact that some one has used a similar construction as a social media name in some social media situations does not exclude it’s use by others; especially when it is a common construction (apparent first initial with an apparent surname).
    4.BS has no idea what other individuals (and there are many) with similar names might use or begin to use at any time, even if it were a certainty that the nickname were not a pseudonym
    5. The person he attributes the “name” to is among those least likely, for easily discernible reasons, to take any interest in BSs affairs or concerns, or others who follow or comment on it
    6. If Bill suspects manipulation, that not only doesn’t mitigate his actions, it makes him more culpable. He should be doubly careful and circumspect. He is not obligated to steal the first set of keys under the lamppost.

      Thus showing why he as chosen for this special job.

      Dave’s being circumspect, but it appears from what little has come out, is that Vinnie might have been “set up” by someone who knows/doesn’t like him.

      You’d have to be really, really, really dim to not realize how easily you can be misled and pointed at targets and why other people who you know “most excellently” might have been picking you for their team…. (Of course, that dimness is part of the selection process and high on the list.)

      Really. Dim.

        Yes. If A intensely dislikes B, it is not inconceivable that A, while disguised as B, will provoke C, who has a history of extreme behavior, poor impulse control, and a friendly relationship with D, who is a convicted bomber.

    We have some first class Billogic here. The premise is that the person who offended Witless Willie is not the person whose employer Willie contacted. But Willie excuses contacting that employer because he confers upon himself a “right” to contact some unknown employer. I doubt that Dave would not redact my heartfelt response to that tripe.

    It’s Wild Bill Schmalfeldt’s retarded “journalistic” ethic of “suspect, print, verify” that will have him turning over the keys of Tincasa in the very near future, probably to John Hoge. His “grieving” will be a lot more convincing when he’s living in a public park and using a rabid squirrel as a pillow.
