To any an all who might have seen the post on this site I was tagged in earlier today, know this. I have not and will not agree to take part in the YouTube discussion series Nick Pacione is purposing. Nick did not discuss this purposed project with me prior to making his post and I have not had direct, two-way contact with Nick in several years. Any and all messages, friend requests, and/or other attempts Nick has made to engage with me have been met with silence on my part and a quick clicking of the block/ignore user button. This policy of total silence will continue. I have no desire what so ever to speak with, work with, or otherwise have any sort of relationship, working or non-working, with Nick Pacione.
No, I’m not going to engage in public Nick bashing. There has been plenty of that already. Just take a look around the more popular writing and publishing forums and websites, if you don’t believe me. While perhaps fun, none of it is productive and may even be harmful.
No, I’m not offended by Nick’s opinions or beliefs. I don’t agree with them, but I fully support his freedom to believe in whatever he chooses and to express those beliefs publicly, even if those beliefs are, in my opinion, hateful and backwards.
I simply do not wish to be connected in anyway with someone that invites the sort of drama Nick Pacione encourages and seemingly thrives on. None of that is to mention the unprofessional and nasty way Nick treated and spoke to me back in the mid-2000s, when I wasn’t someone he thought he could get something out of knowing. That’s why the only thing I would say to Nick is the following:
I’m not your Jesus. I don’t forgive you.
