Good Night, DUMBFUCK!



I guess it wasn’t DUMBFUCK who filed DMCA Notice #2402050 on October 30th, then?

Cyberspace is a kooky place. Everyone seems to believe they have friends and enemies on the Web. They do not. You actually have to personally know someone for that individual to be a friend or an enemy. That individual you have never met, who you know only by his or her Twitter handle, Facebook account, or Blog ID is a stranger. You have no idea who that person is. That person is no more your friend or enemy than my toaster is your friend or enemy. The Internet is a machine. We are machines communicating with other machines. We say things to other machines that we would never think of saying to a person’s face.
That is why most Internet users hide their identities. If you are a regular user of the Net, you know what I mean. This is a fictionalized version of events that may or may not have ever happened. You can’t know what’s true and what’s not. It’s a book. Words on a page – or screen, as the case may be. They are my words. I own them. Although I remain Anonymous, this book and every word in it is registered as my property at the US Copyright Office in Washington, DC. If you think you can identify me by the words herein, then you will have to identify yourself to prove it. Anyone who claims to have written these words in the same order as these words appear is a liar. Know how you can tell? Who owns the copyright. Me. That’s who.

I believe the Internet is more responsible for the overall decline in civility than any other medium in our nature’s history. Is this how we really are, or does the anonymity of the Internet make us that way… 350 million Walter Mitty’s in the United States, pretending


to be that which we show on our avatars. Strong, vibrant, sexy, powerful. If we could see the person behind the avatar, what would we see? The cat-like woman clad in a leather body suit that clings to every curve? Or a dumpy housewife using the web to kill some time until hubby gets home so he can pretend to be some kind of Internet tough guy for people he will never know and who will never know him.

For over a year, I pretended to be someone I wasn’t. I saw a chance to make a little bit of pocket change by pitting people against each other. I didn’t victimize anyone. The person I pitted a large group of conservative Net users was myself. I created a right wing character, used that character to vilify my real progressive identity, and got lots of cash donations in the process.

I thought I was conducting an experiment in human nature and making a little bit of money in the process. What I ended up doing was proving how deep into the pits of hell some people are willing to go to defame someone they’ve never met, never will meet, just because some ideological fellow traveler told them to do it.

If you knew someone down the street, and that person’s spouse died, would you camp out on that person’s lawn and taunt him or her on a daily basis about the death of the one they loved? Nobody would sink that low, right? Not without an anonymous Internet account, a good proxy server, and a reservoir of hate heretofore unimaginable. Some people need a little push. But once they get used to the taste of blood, they yammer for more.


I know. I started changing into the monster I created. I got out. And now, for the first time, I’m telling you how I did it in the hopes that you will learn to regulate your own civility and remember, there’s a very real possibility that person you are having a flame war with on Twitter is a decent human being.

Or maybe not.

You know how the Internet is
Description of original materials:

The pseudonymous troll, “Paul Krendler” has made a cottage industry for himself stealing my material, changing words here and there like a third grader with a “Mad Libs” book, and getting away with it, despite my reporting him to WordPress time and time again. As far as I am concerned, WordPress is complicit in Mr. “Krendler”‘s blatant and frequent theft of my work by allowing him to continue. I can’t get a court order against him, because he remains hidden behind a false name. I can’t sue him for copyright infringement for the same reason. His blog post today, “How to Read A Book” is nearly word for word copying the chapter “Instructions to the Reader” from the recent book by “Anonymous”, titled “Confessions of an Undercover Internet Troll.” The book I wrote under the name “Anonymous” is pending copyright assignment,registration applied for earlier this month. If I knew who this thief was, I would easily win a copyright infringement suit, not to mention various civil torts and criminal charges that could be brought against him. I am at a total loss to understand why WordPress will not stop this man from blatantly stealing my material, changing a word here or there, and getting away with it. Why does WordPress allow this? Why does WordPress allow this man to commit multiple violations of the WORDPRESS TOS with profanity, obscenity, indecent mockery of my late wife who died on June 17? This is not “Parody”. This is theft. DO SOMETHING.

I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted materials described above as allegedly infringing is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.

I acknowledge that a copy of this infringement notice, including any contact information I provided above (address, telephone number, and email address), will be forwarded to the user who uploaded the content at issue.

Now, somebody filed this DMCA Takedown, and signed William M. Schmalfeldt’s name to it, exposing William to perjury charges in the process. If William M. Schmalfeldt isn’t the copyright holder of this material, and if someone sues him for Copyright Infringement over material he may have stolen from this blog (or any other…MAA, anyone?), someone may have just invited the dumping of a whole Slovenian shitload of trouble down on William’s dribbling, spongy pink head.

But if William DID file this notice…well…then I guess we would have to conclude that the Slovenian shit-dumping was another self-inflicted, unforced DUMBFUCK error.

That would be a shame. Not for me, though. For me it would be FUN.

    1. The suspense over the years has just been so entertaining. It will be sad when the internet saga of Bill and Brett ends due to their own natural participation.

  1. I can almost hear the keyboard in a certain Wisconsin Retirement/Mental Health apartment firing up and sending questions to He might even need to HIRE his own attorney in order to clean up his latest mess. But if his last 109+ reboots are any indication, he'll just memory hole everything, pull the book from Amazon and find a new creative online presence where he can help others with his vast knowledge and experience.

    1. Funny, when we strongly suggested he pull his piece of crap libeling a bunch of us, by name and address, he said that pulling a book that had been published wouldn't be ethical (or some similar crap).

      I guess it's only unethical if he thinks no one can take legal action against him over it.

  2. So, to summarize:
    1. Krendler writes parodies.
    2. BS claims they are defamatory and harassing.
    3. Bill Schmalfeldt, plagiarist, claims that this "Krendler" is actually various different people, such as the innocent Grady.
    4. BS sues "Krendler" about five different times for.the alleged harassment and defamation.
    5. BS copyrights the allegedly defamatory material on this blog, claiming to be the author
    6. If BS is not the author as he claims above, he has perjured himself to the copyright office, stolen material authored by others, and filed false DMCA takedown notices. Some of these are felonies.
    7. If he is indeed the author, as he states above, he knowingly filed false lawsuits against innocent parties, perjured himself in federal and state courts, and used the courts to harass a man who has a restraining order against him.
    8. ?????
    9. PROFIT!

    1. Seems legit. If you are a 60-year-old Widower living out your days on JWR or Glenlivet or Stella Artois or whatever the fuck he says he has in the cabinet now.

      Just be honest, Bill. It's really Night Train, isn't it? Because only Night Train gives those WONDERFUL hallucinations as well as the drunken feeling. Why are you ashamed of drinking Night Train? It's great for people on a budget after all. And tastes a whole lot better than Mad Dog 50/50. So it's a step up there for sure.

  3. Wouldn't it be funny if Bill Parvocampus copyrighted the various Schmalfeldt memorial pages? That would be a riot! In fact, maybe it's already in the works.

  4. Bill Schmalfeldt, who routinely publishes his personal information and. Owen habits on the Internet, complains that his post is a fox and he will retaliate! ...against innocent third parties. What is completely missing from his deranged tweets is any admission of guilt for lying publicly and repeatedly about the author of the plagiarized book.

    Bill Schmalfeldt is a liar and a plagiarist. Only desperate women would marry men with little or no honor.
