Troll Control

Nikita has a new Blogspot entry.

I get the jokers popping up left and right . . .

It’s the ones who pop up in front of you that you need to worry about, silly.

Just the past few days I had people coming up with my old pictures as their profile picture, and I stole some of these pictures back.

Bad Nicky, bad.  Didn’t Sheryl ever tell you that it’s wrong to steal?

I did a post on my wordpress blog about some of these trolls hijacking my threads posting about hats and shit like that.

Like chocolate milk?

I noticed that there was an emergence of trolls coming on to the website I am active with and coming on with some of my old pictures — and these pictures weren’t online anywhere, but they were of me playing pool.

Then ‘splain, Nicky, how so many people got a hold of them.  Did somebody’s computer plug into your brain while you were asleep, and suck the images out of it?

Between writing the novella and doing promo for the magazine acceptence I’ve been trying to do troll control on each of the sites I am active with.

Good luck with that, Peaches.  You seem to have pissed off quite a few of the wrong people this time around.

It seems like when I try to get my magazine together or the anthology, some asshole would announce its “full” when I am not even done with the project.

That’s what happens when you sell the company for a slice of pizza and a can of swill Pabst.

  1. Is it me, or did anyone else start with the ‘Stuck in the Middle With You’ song going through their head while reading this?

  2. Dammit Ant! This: OK, knowing what scares Fat Horse (Women, fat people, falling off a fence, cats, paying his own bills, moving out of the basement, vaginas) just made me bust out laughing and wake up the baby!

  3. I heard through the grapevine that The Ethereal Gazette got a new issue out on monday. Apparently they recently received a new submission. It’s got something to do with belts I believe so it might be fashion related.

    (they also said that they should probably check the submissions account more often than once a week)

    *blush*

  4. The is Le Femme Nikita facebook regarding the current image on his blogspot wall.

    Illinois Fatass: I can’t exactly tell you when this picture was taken but I found some trolls on VampireFreaks.com use this one picture as a way to get me looking like a hair metal listening cocksucker. The picture was around the time when I first took my glasses off for good amd started wearing black clothing.

    And I’m still waiting for heads to roll over my issue with his fuckface or whatever he called it.

    • The picture was around the time when I first took my glasses off for good amd started wearing black clothing.

      Yeah — that’s why he was wearing blue jeans and a navy blue shirt.

    • “this one picture as a way to get me looking like a hair metal listening cocksucker.”

      Um, those pics appear to be untouched (he is using them himself) so he’s saying he looks “like a hair metal listening cocksucker” in them? And that’s our fault?!?

      “And I’m still waiting for heads to roll over my issue with his fuckface or whatever he called it.”

      I don’t get this one either. Does he literally mean issue like his “magazine” or…what?!

  5. As I said over at Jenny’s blog, I have received an email from Stephen indicating their remorse in getting involved with Nicky and they wish to start over with us.

    On their staff they have an openly gay member who took offense to Nicky’s acceptance. That along with other factors have led to Nicky being removed from their upcoming issue and any future issues. Nicky will not nor ever be in any issue of Dark Fiction.

    Stephen admits his initial reaction was defensive and apologizes and as I said before, would like to start anew with all of this, minus one Nicky The Mullet Pacione. I was the first one to contact him and I’m going to be the first to bury the hatchet and forgive and forget. After all, how many people has Nicky suckered who later came forward and told of how he lied and tricked them?

  6. And we get the remark we were all expecting in the VF double feature.

    “A question to the trolls who are critiquing my work, can each of you do better. Your suggestions are trash if you ask me; and if you want to critique someone — show your own work to see what you can do. “

    • Has anyone pointed out that the mod didn’t consider the remarks to be trolling, and that nowhere in the forum rules does it say that one has to produce a work in kind to be allowed to critique anything?

    • Let’s see what this does:

      ~lf,

      I’m not a mod or admin here and I do not claim to be one. ScarlettVamp, not five posts above “Critique is NOT trolling. They didn’t get nasty, malicious or bash the work, if you can’t accept critiques, even if it’s not steller, then don’t post.”

      No one is making fun of you. Your work was critiqued on how to make it improve it. No one has said ‘It Sucked’.

      (There is no intent on this poster’s part regarding forum decorum/etiquette or the delineation of mod/admin duties. Please do not take it as such.)

    • Grab screen caps its going ot get ugly!

      Here is what The_Ascension just wrote:

      “Just to put your mind at ease, I have no idea what the beef is between you and anyone else, nor do I give a shit.

      However, I agree with everything previous posters have said.
      Your grammar is, quite frankly, atrocious. You switch tenses in the middle of a sentence, you have huge run-on sentences, and sentence fragments galore. You have misspelled words, random apostrophes, misplaced commas. You really need to go back and proofread this, especially if it’s a standard and has been for 3 years.

      Your dialog is incredibly stiff. None of your characters sound like living people, they sound like an extension of the narrator.

      I think the biggest downfall is that the narrator isn’t a neutral character. Usually the writing in the third person is fairly straightforward, and lets the characters themselves get the interesting stuff. Here, it’s quite obviously biased to the protagonist, and is riddled with so much profanity it’s just distasteful to read after a while, and I swear like a sailor.
      Along with the profanity, the rampant homophobia present was appalling. Your personal hangups aside, you lose a huge portion of your audience if you allow hate like that to seep into your work.

      Aside from the technical writing problems, it’s extremely hard to follow. I’m not sure whether they’re in high school or in a workplace, and the events taking place were completely absurd. I don’t believe for a second that a) this Ben character, as a high schooler, can not only bring a gun to school unnoticed, but kill a principle and burn a teacher alive without anyone besides “Deeds” noticing and not go to the police, either anonymously or otherwise. I don’t believe b), that this character can or would go dig up graves, just to toss in this kid’s homework. Besides it being highly illegal and Ben being caught by cemetery security (in order for him to dig about six feet would take a helluva lot longer than a little bit before school and besides that, how on earth would he get a hold of Deeds’ homework in the first place?) he would have been noticed by a psychologist a long while before this whole workplace spectacle.

      For that, there is no possible way he would not have been terminated lighting fires in the office. There is no way security would not have been called when Deeds was physically attacking him. I don’t care how hated he was around the office. People don’t stand around chanting fight fight fight and omg he’s gonna die. It simply does not happen.

      Where on earth does an office have weaponry as you described? Rifles and freaking machetes? What kind of boss who has any idea about lawsuits would send an employee into a situation with a machete against another employee who has a rifle?

      During that scene, you had no continuity. First Ben is blinded by his glasses (yet Deeds is mysteriously unharmed by those same shards of glass), but then he knows that he his wife in the throat (and how the hell would Deeds know “by the angle” that Ben was trying to behead the guard? If things are happening so fast, and confronted with gore like that, people devolve into screaming wrecks, not forensic analysts.) Speaking of his wife, she magically appeared. There was absolutely no reason for her to go off the deep end.

      Finally, their wounds. They’re far too active for people who have serious injuries. If he’s bleeding from an artery or vein, never mind a severed limb which also contains a major blood vessel, he’s unconscious from blood loss in a few minutes. Dead in a few more. She’s dead in very few minutes. They’re not focused on anything except that the world is getting dimmer by the second.

      On the whole, it needs serious editing, both technically and just the story itself.

      Again, I don’t have any outstanding feelings towards you, positive or negative. This is my honest critique of your work that you’ve posted.”

  7. Man the fun stuff I missed! Oh wait I missed it because the weather was awesome in the northwoods of wisconsin as was the food and cheap wine (what can I say? My family loves their arbor mist :p )

    • Welcome back! Glad you had a good time. Mostly, what you missed was Nicky spazzing out on VampireFreaks, and getting himself suspended for a few days. There was a little fun over at WriterFace, too.

  8. This a little OT, but a couple of the editors of The Dark Fiction Spotlight have posted on my review of Nicky’s “The Witch’s Party” on my blog. Might be worth copying their comments over here for more to see. I think they’re feeling a little stuck with Nicky right now, so I’m not suggesting we bash them – just let their comments be available to a wider audience than just my little blog.

  9. Thanks, I see Letitia’s comment now. I agree with her that we shouldn’t be too hard on Daniel and Stephen. It can be hard to hear criticisms about one’s professional judgement, and they’re both young and learning.

  10. Nicolette has made a blog post on WriterFace. Here’s one of my favorite lines:

    “The fact that a 50 Foot Cockroach and a faceless twat are posting reviews of story which isn’t officially released yet and caught it in the cache of google (not even I know how to do that one.) ”

    He just can’t help but call attention to his own stupidity, can he?

    • Hah. I can tell him. Google “site:thedarkfiction.com pacione”. Find the link to the page with his name on it (it’s the first one). Click on the little link that says “Cached”. Simple as pie.

    • I resent having to join the site to complain about him bringing my name into something I have had no hand in. I’m waiting to have my membership confirmed now, which means it’ll probably be after work tonight before I can report this to the site owners.

    • I’m in. This is what I sent in:

      It disturbs me that the author of this screed

      http://www.writerface.com/profiles/blogs/these-socalled-rewrites-and?xg_source=activity

      is provided with a forum here for his libelous attacks on anyone whom he takes a notion to defame. Whatever it is he’s ranting about, my name appears in this post in a most insulting manner. Being somewhat familiar with his history, it has been apparent to me for a number of years that Mr. Pacione is incapable of writing anything for publication that is free of false accusations and unwarranted abuse, and that he has no regard for social or legal niceties. I object most strenuously to this post and respectfully request that it be deleted, and Mr. Pacione be discouraged, if not actively barred, from again polluting this social network with his hate-filled tripe and villainous slurs. The man is clearly demented, and while I have utmost sympathy for the mentally challenged, that does not mean they should be allowed to commit libelous acts without appropriate restrictions and consequences. Thank you.

  11. Well, perhaps I’ll get lucky and someone will send me a copy of “Game Over” for critique and review. 🙂
