On any day that ends with a “Y,” you will probably find Bill Schmalfeldt yammering on about somebody “lying.”
It might be on his blog, wherever in the heck that is nowadays before he memory-holes it, yet again. (I thought he stood behind everything he wrote? Am I wrong?)
It might be on his twitter feed. Again, before he memory-holes the particular tweet, or deletes the account, or takes it private or gets it suspended. Yet again. I think we are up to over 100 different names/accounts that have been disappeared in one way or another. Somebody’s got a list somewhere, I’m sure.
It might be in an email he sends to someone about something they wrote about him, and he’ll usually include some sort of threat against them that includes that he’s going to lawyer up or he’s going to get what he wants from them, etc., etc., etc.
You have to ask yourself, wouldn’t this get tiring for someone? It seems to me that if you constantly are saying that dozens upon dozens of people are lying about you, and you aren’t a politician, that maybe maybe, just maybe, there might be something to it?
I was again perusing archives at different places on the Net. This time I visited Aaron Walker’s blog HERE. And once again, lo and behold, what do we see? Bill Schmalfeldt crying to the heavens about people lying about him and about how it’s LIBEL. Because CONTEXT! ZOMG!
But this time it’s got an interesting twist. On the one hand, Bill claims to Aaron in one email (blog post?) that what Paterico said about him had *just* enough context to not be libel, but then turned around and in a blog post about the SAME THING said that it *was* libel.
I’m going to let Aaron take it from there:
I don’t know with certainty how many times Bill Schmalfeldt has claimed that people have lied about him. But I’m pretty positive that it’s well north of 1,000 times. And how many times has he gotten someone’s boss to “see what he thinks about all of this?” More importantly, WHY would anyone think that they are so important and their butthurt is SO HUGE that they would need to reach out to someone’s boss to ask that kind of question?
I’m guessing that about 99% of people who will read about this saga are going to be more concerned about Bill Schmalfeldt trying to reach out and touch people inappropriately (ew) than they will be thinking that his level of butthurt warrants that kind of behavior.
