Nicky posted a rant on Wordpress and quoted me. Fair enough, but in my quote he added a link to himself on Associated Content. Clicking on that link gives Nicky something like a penny towards what they pay him for clicks.
I'm so bad Nicky, yet you'd use me to make money?
Well then, I shall link to some Associated Content articles and accounts from this blog so that the person who wrote them can make some money.
You are right and those who go through the effort to post articles on AC deserve to be read. They deserve to have as many people as possible click links to their content so that they can get paid for them.
You love Associated Content, Nicky. You let us know that when your articles appear on there, it's because they were "accepted", so that means that they have high standards and if AC allows them on there, they are worthy of our reading. Well you yourself spread the joys of AC to as many places as you can, maybe you are right.
Now, you stole my words and placed it on one of your blogs. That I don't have a problem with, because I unlike you am not a psycho about that sort of thing. Besides it was you that did it, and you stole, and I am used to you stealing the words of others seeing as you are a plagiarizer. My problem with what you did, was you used my words and added a link of your own, in of itself that doesn't anger me, but you are using my name to make a profit.
Well today something special will happen on Expose The Tard. Today, I will do what you want. I will link to articles on AC that feature the writer Nickolaus Pacione so that the author of those articles can make money.
Let's start off about that damn cabal that you try so hard to warn us about!
A Literary Cabal
Review: Storms of Armageddon
Review: Spectral Exile
A Review of Mr. Pacione
Folks do what is right. Click on the above links. Read the well written articles featuring Nicky that talk about Cabals as well as his work. Give the authors of those four pieces above a read and your clicks so that they can earn money for their work.
There I did it. AC article link? Check. Featuring Nicky? Check. Featuring Nicky's work? Check. Talks about Cabals and Trolls? Check.
There. Peace has been made. Did what Nicky wanted so there should be peace now between us.
Hey asshole, ExposeTheTard, yeah I am talking to you here — are you so willing to back your lies up in a public forum as a courtroom?Sure, although I'm not sure how you'd get me in there. Are you prepared, you poverty stricken asshole, to actually buy some new clothes for your courtroom appearance? Because I remember the first time I saw you "dress up" you wore your Dali tie, light blue denim-like shirt, and black White Sox hat. I've also seen recent photos where you are wearing the same damn thing. If you go to court, you'll have to dress the occasion, and bathe. Are you prepared for that?
Why would I be in court anyway? Oh I know why; because I have documented proof of all the money you have spent since you've posted your most recent sob story that you can't pay contributors. I can show a pattern over the years, where you have posted either on blogs or PDFs that you cannot pay the authors what you promised because you are broke at the moment, and your yearly excuse that Christmas is coming up and you have to buy the family presents, then I can show them in your own words where you admitted to going out somewhere to party and give away dozens of free copies of books those people contributed to even though you haven't paid the authors that did most of the work in them. I can tell the court that there are a select group of people who, every time you get a new "book" out there, always get a free copy, and how they get them before the authors get their contributor copies. Band members and others who don't want them, but they get them first and foremost, and they get them before the people you promised you'd give them to do. Remember your warm hearted story where you felt bad that an author got paid $25, but has to buy a copy of the book she was featured in because your cheap ass won't do it, so you gave her $26 so she makes a $1 profit? I have that, and I also have proof that GWEN gets copies of those very same books even though she has never written a story for the series. The authors that contribute don't get contributor copies, unless you count PDFs, and even then you are too paranoid about those anymore, however, because you aren't a real publisher and have to pay for your books from lulu like the rest of us, you spend money on them, and give them away at every concert you go to. Because Nicky can't simply go to a concert and listen to music, he has to kiss up to every band he hears and give them "freebies" while the people who put more effort into their stories than you did, suffer.
Is that what I am going to court for, Nicky? Well I'd better start preparing by sending each and every author from the series an email with blog captures, of your own words, during the times you swore you were broke, admitting to giving away copies to everyone but them.
EDIT: Look what just now popped up.
See that? Extra copy of Tabloid Purposes IV laying around, and another lucky person has a chance at scoring a free copy.Nickolaus Pacione wrote at 12:19amHey Andrea -- you know I do have a copy of Tabloid Purposes IV laying around if you're interested. There is a ghost story I wrote in this one called "PASSENGER" and there are some other types of horror stories in this one.
If you want I can see if I can talk to my publisher in South Carolina to score you a copy of House of Spiders 3 since this ... is published and carried on shocklines.com. I am curious if you read true ghost stories or the Gothic horror stories.
