Deranged Cyberstalker Bill Schmalfeldt Explores New Frontiers of Failure

Posted on | May 18, 2014 | 37 Comments

It’s been three weeks since we checked in on the antics of Bill Schmalfeldt, the brain-damaged troll whose harassment of Brett Kimberlin’s enemies led him into an bizarre obsession with John Hoge, my co-defendant in the perjuring bomber’s vexatious lawsuits.

Read that sentence again, please.

If you’re a regular reader, it all makes sense, but if you were somebody just randomly browsing the Web and encountering this for the first time, you would have some questions: Who is Brett Kimberlin? Why do I call him “the perjuring bomber”? Why do I call Bill Schmalfeldt a “brain-damaged troll”? Who is John Hoge, and why are both of us being sued by Kimberlin? It’s a long, crazy story that I’ve been involved in for two years now, and it is important to acknowledge up front that the latest weirdness by Bill Schmalfeldt is occurring way off there on the obscure online fringes of Weirdoville.

It’s not BREAKING URGENT NEWS, in other words, and the essential triviality of Bill Schmalfeldt is something I understand, even if Bill doesn’t understand it himself. OK, so . . .

Bill Schmalfeldt has been self-publishing “books” about his demented misadventures. While I haven’t paid any attention to these, I think Bill is basically collecting up his own blog posts into “books,” which would probably be of interest to no one, except perhaps to a Maryland court — Exhibit A, as it were, in the case to have Bill Schmalfeldt permanently committed to a state psychiatric hospital. Let’s let Bill tell you what has resulted from his kooky publishing venture:

They killed “My Slow, Journalistic Death.” Because I used a sentence from WJJ Hoge’s blog.
They killed “Intentional Infliction”. Because “Paul Krendler” claims he sold the rights to a blog to WJJ Hoge.
They killed “WJJ Hoggy Tells You How to Smack Around a Handicapped Liberal (and get away with it).” Because Robin Wesley Causey claimed a copyright he doesn’t own.
And now, “Cyber Ins@nity” has been tossed off of the lists at They won’t tell me why, except that someone claims it “invades” his or her privacy.

In other words, Bill Schmalfeldt’s book publishing career has been about as successful as his “journalism” career, which is to say it’s been a laughable failure, because Bill is a brain-damaged troll.

However, because he is unable to acknowledge his ineptitude or to take responsibility for his own failures, every time Bill Schmalfeldt fails, he blames his enemies, demonizing them as scapegoats, and then doubling down on failure. Later, rinse, repeat.

(The nice nurses at the psych ward are nodding in agreement.)

Bill has inflated the importance of his own (self-inflicted) problems and blames these problems on Hoge and on various commenters at Hoge’s blog — Paul Krendler, Robin Causey, etc. — and has taken to “doxing” these people (publishing their personal information) and, by using such materials in his “books,” Schmalfeldt has stirred up trouble for himself with these online self-publishing services.

Who is Nancy Gilly? Is she indeed @LibraryGryffon? And why would anyone other than Bill Schmalfeldt care? Bill’s complaints are as nonsensical as his helpless obsession with the “Wonderful Wizard of Hoge,” but this is how pathology becomes identity: Believing himself to be a victim, Schmalfeldt makes his victimhood the basis of his identity, and then interprets everything in that context. But because his victimhood is delusional — his misfortunes are in fact the result of his own actions — his self-created persona of “Victim Bill” is simply a symptomatic manifestation of his derangement.

In the latest episode, Bill Schmalfeldt went chasing after the identity of that elusive phantom “pemason54,” to no avail:

What does Bill Schmalfeldt know about “Honest People”? Never mind.

Hoge comments on the comic value of Schmalfeldt’s “faildox”:

Portland, Oregon, huh?
Of course, I have the IP addresses of all the comments that have come in under the name pemason54. The IPs trace to three sets of locations. Two are in adjacent towns in a state on the east coast. The third traces to various locations east of the Mississippi River belonging to a mobile phone carrier.

 Here’s a brilliant satire: “Because, let’s face it — I couldn’t be more of a dick if my feet were testicles.”

    Hoge revived a Mark Singer term, which Singer had used in reference to Kimberlin, that also describes Bill’s analytical chops: “jumping the connection.” This perfectly describes not only BS’s analysis of alleged conspiracies, but also his doxes, and if you deny it, why lickspittle! FOCUS! Parkinson’s!

    It’s crazy. Schmalfeldt is now chasing around after blog commenters and Twitter users — “Who is Nancy Gilly?” — as if identifying these people was of any interest to anyone.

    The identity of commenters does seem to be of interest to BK, given the reports about his interrogatories. Gee, I wonder why?

    He’s more or less a confessed cyber stalker. An angry man who spills his hate at random targets. I thought the left was against bullying, but I guess not.

    like most leftist, he’s only against it when he’s not the one doing it, cause it’s all right when HE bullies/doxes/threatens others just because he doesnt like what they say but has no legal right to stop them…

    I really think it’s not so much about BK now, but rather just his way of trying to save face so he doesn’t look like such a wuss by backing down after all his toothless threats to various people.
    He says he wants to be left alone, and he’s been left alone, but he just wont leave others alone. He always contrives some silly reason to go after someone and then cries “stop libeling/lying about/defaming me!!1!VICTIM!!!!!11!” when they dont just roll over and take it…
    Dude needs a psych eval pronto.

    But then he also said that he had called her on her cell phone, because she gave out the number on her land-line answering machine.

    If any of the story is true, I’m inclined to go with the cell phone version, because as someone commented over at Hogewash, who would listen to the message he claimed to have left and think calling the crazy man back would be preferable to either ignoring it or better yet calling the cops?

    As a further sign of his insanity, he spent yesterday evening demanding that we all take down our avatars because they used a picture of his mother.

    Someone had made an avatar by taking a photo Bill had posted on line of his mother and then shopping the head of the Star Trek salt vampire onto it, in such a way that no one would have ever guessed that the photo was of Mrs. Schmalfeldt except that Bill started screeching about the emotional abuse that was being inflicted upon him.

    Does the avatar in that screen shot look like it’s based on a photo of Mrs. Schmalfeldt?

    He does like his porn, doesn’t he. Really he needs a good psych eval, and then to be permanently banned from the internet.

    Just checked his TL and blog, and taking them together, it looks like he’s openly inviting harassment, either real or false flag. He can then point to the blog and claim that he’s an innocent victim. He will then forward everything to the Howard county prosecutor again. It looks like the baby dox photo is gone, too.

    I guess it finally got through his fat skull that the Causeys really did own the photo of their baby.

    He seriously thinks that if it’s online he can use it for his “reporting” including printing in a book, but God forbid anyone do the same to him. That’s harassment! That’s illegal! That’s invading his and his family’s privacy!

    If it weren’t for double standards, the bastard wouldn’t have any at all.

    Let’s just be direct here, Schmalfeldt, Ozborne, Rauhauser, all of them are incompetent when it comes to d0xing. Thus far I have been fail d0xed as:

    Marc Randazza
    Jay Leiderman
    Adam Steinbaugh (Ozborne’s top pic)
    James McGibney (Rauhauser’s top pic)
    Joe Pullen (a fake name I post under)
    Tom Harris
    Sally Winters
    John Lang
    John Langley
    Will Buckley
    Ramesh Pilutla
    Carolyne Pilutla
    Brandon King
    Brandon Crismon
    etc. etc. etc.

    Yet somehow Rauhauser & Osborne seem to think I’ve posted a bunch of fail doxes. Interestingly enough, they can’t produce one tweet or post to support such an observation. A fact I’m sure that surprises none of us.
