Never let it be said that he doesn’t do it whole-heartedly. And with a huge helping of playing the blame game.
In Bill’s umpteenth zillionth time “proving” that he isn’t guilty like he admits he is because, reasons, Bill Schmalfeldt is saying that it was over a year after the copyright settlement agreement with WJJ Hoge was reached before he even breached it.
Ummm, Bullshit. It was TEN DAYS. TEN DAYS from the agreement was made until Bill Schmalfeldt published his short-lived book Animus Nocendi and broke it. A discussion of the situation can be found at Hogewash! HERE. Just because that initial date wasn’t brought up in the lawsuit doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. It just means that Bill isn’t being sued for it. Mainly because John Hoge understands how to craft a lawsuit that actually lasts further than motions to dismiss. Because details matter.
Bill Schmalfeldt doesn’t seem to understand the differences between Twitter TOS and a breach of contract and the responsibilities that lie with both. This is not surprising to most of us in the horde, because we have come to understand that Bill only understands what he thinks he needs to understand.
He has posted a video HERE where he crows that HONEST and TRUE and AWESOME SPARKLY SHINEY!!!11!!1! websites embed tweets. As if this is the only way that is allowed to reproduce Twitter content. And as if this even bears slightly upon Bill Schmalfeldt’s responsibility to not break a settlement agreement.
Well guess what? People used to simply embed Bill Schmalfeldt’s tweets. Until he started deleting them. Now people post screenshots because he will delete them all the time, or they will be deleted when his accounts get deep-sixed. It’s called archiving. And honest, true and awesome sparkley shiney websites do that as well with content that they know might disappear into the ephemeris.
Bill Schmalfeldt thinks that cases get tried in the court of public opinion, like that will actually matter. It won’t. All it does it provide those of us on the sidelines more reasons to go buy popcorn.
Stock up. The flailing as June 28 approaches is going to be EPIC.
