‘A Particularly Odd Argument’ by the Particularly Odd Bill Schmalfeldt

Posted on | February 18, 2013 | 5 Comments

After Lee Stranahan filed online harassment charges against deranged cyberstalker Bill Schmalfeldt, the deranged cyberstalker argued:

You have the ability to block incoming messages from people you do not wish to hear from.

Aaron Walker observes:

This is a particularly odd argument for him to make because he has used four different Twitter handles and six different email addresses I know of. . . .
So how exactly does Lee block all six email addresses he is known to use? Is Lee supposed to be psychic? And given that a person can invent a new email in all of ten minutes on gmail or hotmail, and a new Twitter account with similar ease, why should anyone expect blocking to be a viable solution to harassment?

Walker demonstrates that Schmalfeldt’s defense is legally invalid.

John Hoge notices that Schmalfeldt has switched his Twitter account to “protected” status, the same move Neal Rauhauser made after “TwitterGate” blew up in Neal’s face. Such a gesture is the cyberstalker’s white flag of surrender.

Lee Stranahan has recorded a podcast discussing the harassment charges he filed against Schmalfeldt.

    The word isn’t surrender. Its hudna.

    But protecting his account is a sign he is finally taking this situation seriously.

    I wonder if Kimberlin gives special pay for time served in jail, you know sort of like hazard pay in most professions?

    Nah…it’s probably expected, like the old Mafia used to on the pains and penalties of cemet shoeing.

    I doubt there’s special duty pay for jail time whilst in Kimberlin’s employ. After all, the convict gets three hots and a cot at state expense.

    The personal relationships, those are off the clock anyway.
