I am no longer me. My main machine despite my best efforts has been hacked, my accounts compromised including my email. and has been disconnected from the internet.
How did this happen? When did this happen? shit doc, i don't have a fucking clue. I thought i was pretty sharp. I guess not.
just about every online account that i have has been compromised. Most importantly my digital identity and user/password for typepad and wordpress. I have been doing damage control, for my clients. How the fuck i got to be part of this mess is revolting.

setting up the "I was hacked" story because he knows the posts come back to his IP and he knows that the police are coming. I'm not fooled.  Alan Herrell is one bad dude.

If she pulls a stunt like, what the fuck am I thinking: the girl is known worldwide, and has a celebrity about a billion times larger than any lowly beginner book writer. It's simply impossible, ask Rick, that she would seek attention through panty-less (pantiless?) escapades. She's infallible and unquestionable! Beyond reproach given her fame!

I heard that Bruce Willis and Courtney Cox were seen kissing recently!!!!!!!!!!! OMG! Can you believe THAT!?????  Can't wait for my Entertainment Weekly to come to give me the lowdown!

Getting back to the OP....

I don't buy that "I was hacked" story.

I've got a bridge to sell to anyone who actually does buy that story. It has a believability ranking of about 0.000001%.

It's not The Big Lie.  It's more like a "plausible deniability" moment.

Yup.  It's total BS, but it makes proving Kathy's case quite difficult.

poor chap.  a few little anonymous death threats and suddenly the whole internet hates him.

I've seen this 'I was hacked' move a dozen times and Herrell I assure you has just confessed.
