Don’t you just love it when a plan comes together? And especially when it’s a snarky little plot to mousetrap someone you hate? Well, our favorite ham-fisted Internet Oaf has come up with a doozy.
As everyone except, ahh… Bill Schmalfeldt knows, he is headed for a really rough patch court battle-wise in just a bit. Having no facts sympathetic to his position to offer in defending himself from the wrath of the court, he has patently set out to create some.
In the past, Schmalfeldt has sought repeatedly to accuse the estimable John Hoge of being legally responsible for the things others say on his estimable blog Hogewash because Hoge “moderates” comments on occasion. Never mind that this is a completely incorrect reading of the federal law that protects people who post blogs from such claims. Being wrong has never slowed down the Myrtle Beach Manatee.
So Bill Schmalfeldt attempts to post a comment on Hogewash. It gets caught, of course, in the blog’s grease trap- WordPress’s “Your comment is awaiting moderation” function- and never appears online. But Clever Bill takes a screenie of the comment from the only place it ever appeared- his computer monitor- and then, shouting
proceeds to slobber all over his Twitter feed with posts like the following one.
I’m fairly certain that John Hoge has made it abundantly clear to Bill Schmalfeldt that he is unwelcome at Hogewash for many, many good reasons. Did it ever occur to Schmalfeldt that Hoge just doesn’t allow people who act like assholes the privilege of commenting? Just sayin’.
Be well, Bill.
