Nicky Fails to Understand What "Goth" Means to Real Goths

After finally getting banned from DeviantArt (twice!) and Shocklines (three times!), our favorite little Goth-wannabe has been posting up a storm on Google+. His postings can be seen here.

If you scroll down, you can see that many of his posts to the Goth community regarding music have been deleted. This is indicated by the crossed out category just before the date. For example, this post about Black Sabbath:

This is but one of many. Nicky also posted about Iron Maiden, Saviour Machine, Empyrean Sky, Slayer, and others. Now notice that the name of the community--in the upper left hand corner of the post--is also crossed out. This means, I think, that Nicky has been banned from the community. Curious, I trotted on over to the Goth community and found this little gem:

LOL. Nicky utter fails yet again to understand the culture he so desperately longs to be a part of. Nicky's name doesn't show in the member list for the community, so I do believe that my conclusion about banning was correct.

So how many bannings does that make this month? I think it's a new record.

And Now Back to Our Nicky Coverage

Nicky finally discovered, almost three months late, that I let the and domain registrations expire, and he sent me a little love note:

Frankly, I never did much with the two domains, wasn't happy with the templates available (I am not a whiz at web design, any text edits were always wonky, etc), and decided I had better uses for the $10 or so it would cost to renew the domains. So Nicky or anyone else can snap them up if desired.

Now since Nicky is back on-line and harassing folks again, I think it's time I posted another review of some of his work. When I left off, I had committed to a review of Nicky's "15 Minutes Before the 11th Hour". Todd and I will be working on our review of that over the next few days and hope to have it up soon.
