This is rich. I’ve not once left him a comment on any of his blogs–not here at either of his WordPress accounts, not at his Blogspot, not at his LiveJournal, and not at his MySapce.
“I want to know how you can delete another user for harassment. I am being harassed by a mebmer who goes on as http://therustynail.wordpress.com“
He posted that to the support forum here at WordPress. The responses he got were rather apathetic. It would seem that the forum volunteers are level-headed about content issues. This one’s my personal favorite:
“This is a technical support forum. We do get into issues of content – and this type of self righteous winging is very unwelcome.”
As many people have pointed out over the years, there is no libel if it’s the truth. Kody Boye leveled the accusation on his Live Journal that he was being cyber-stalked by Mr. Pacione. I merely linked to that journal entry, which is public.
This journal merely reports the facts, links back to the source material, and tries to make sense of the phenomenon that is Pacione. I consider it a public service. If I’m unsure of something, I say as much.
There is no libel. Further, I do not consider the use of Google alerts and newsreader feeds to be stalking. My attitude runs along the lines of “If you don’t want people reading a feed from your blog, don’t publish one.” Blogspot certainly allows that feature to be disabled, yet Mr. Pacione has never disabled it.
