There remains one guy who pretends not to understand things, so I’m taking one more try at this. I have cropped off the photos which appeared with this Tweet by Bill Schmalfeldt:
Please notice the wording of the first sentence. Passive voice “…as posted on hogewash.” He didn’t say,”John Hoge posted…”
John Hoge has never, ever actually posted an altered photo on Bill’s late wife on the website Hogewash! I don’t actually think John Hoge has posted any photos of Bill’s wife, at all.
If you read comments on a WordPress site, you know that individual users can use photographs as their avatars. Mine is a small picture of myself. Someone used the altered picture of Bill’s wife as their avatar, and that was published online…but not by John Hoge.
Bill Schmalfeldt wants you to believe that John Hoge caused something to be posted on his website which was an ugly, zombified photo of the late Mrs. Schmalfeldt. John Hoge is no more in charge of avatars in the comments section, than I am over here.
Bill Schmalfeldt desperately wants to be the victim in all this. This must be so frustrating for him. He can’t reach the ones who have insulted him, and the one guy whose contact information he has, and who seems to be a’big cheese,’ simply refuses to fight dirty.
While I discourage the use of ugly avatars of adversary’s family…I am not in charge of those things.
