Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.

You and I may not feel it, but we are all at the beginning of the Information Age. Like a double edged sword, the advantages and disadvantages of Information and Communications Technology are clear. If someone says to me again, “Dr. Nuccitelli, what do you want us to do, turn off the internet?”, I think I will throw my digital devices out the window. For the record, I love cyberspace and grateful for its many benefits. What I don’t understand is how little is being done to teach children and the rest of society about the dark side of cyberspace and the typologies of iPredator.

At times, it feels like society has buried its head in the sand in relationship to internet safety and cyber attack prevention. It is truly unfortunate that the vast majority of online users do not pay attention to information security and cyber attack prevention until they, their loved ones or wallet are cyber attacked. Not only do I think basic internet safety, Digital Citizenship and how to conduct oneself in cyberspace be taught in schools, but it should be a national priority. For now, the best we can do, for those of us who give a damn, is to encourage awareness.

To achieve this aim, pasted below are twenty images and quotes to help think about how to protect yourself, loved ones and business. All the images are free to download, share and edit for educational purposes. For most devices, simply right click on the image and click “save as” to download to your device. No personal information or email address is required to print out or save. I present you my novice graphic design skills and philosophical ramblings.

Internet Safety Tips for Parents by Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.

 Internet Safety Tips for Parents

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.

Internet Safety Tips for Parents-Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.

“Internet Safety Tips for Parents and Educators” is an article for parents, primary caregivers and educators addressing cyber attack prevention and internet safety. Authored by Michael Nuccitelli Psy.D., a New York State licensed psychologist and the author of iPredator, a new Information Age forensic construct. Dr. Nuccitelli provides internet safety tips and cyber attack prevention strategies to help insulate children from being cyber attacked by peers and adults engaged in online sexual predation.

Online Sexual Predators (aka, iPredators) habitually prepare for children and teens, around the country, returning to school looking to the internet for their academic, social networking and developmental needs. The beginning of a new school year guarantees a significant increase in online usage, and most important to online sexual predators, patterned and predictable times of online usage. Now that children will be back to school, their time spent online significantly increases along with patterned and predictable times they access the internet. Online sexual predators, cyberbullies, cyber criminals and cyberstalkers ready themselves for another year of unsuspecting and ignorant groups of vulnerable, discouraged and online high risk taking children.

Provided below are 14 internet safety tips compiled by Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D, a New York State licensed psychologist and author of the new Information Age forensics construct, iPredator. The internet safety tips and recommendations were compiled to assist adults insulate children from being cyber attacked and targeted by iPredators. Dr. Nuccitelli’s definition of iPredator is as follows:

iPredator

iPredator: A person, group or nation who, directly or indirectly, engages in exploitation, victimization, coercion, stalking, theft or disparagement of others using Information and Communications Technology [ICT]. iPredators are driven by deviant fantasies, desires for power and control, retribution, religious fanaticism, political reprisal, psychiatric illness, perceptual distortions, peer acceptance or personal and financial gain. iPredators can be any age or gender and are not bound by economic status, race, religion or national heritage. iPredator is a global term used to distinguish anyone who engages in criminal, coercive, deviant or abusive behaviors using ICT. Central to the construct is the premise that Information Age criminals, deviants and the violently disturbed are psychopathological classifications new to humanity.

Whether the offender is a cyberbully, cyberstalker, cyber harasser, internet troll, cybercriminal, online sexual predator, cyber terrorist, online child pornography consumer/distributor or engaged in internet defamation or nefarious online deception, they fall within the scope of iPredator. The three criteria used to define an iPredator include:

  • A self-awareness of causing harm to others, directly or indirectly, using ICT.
  • The usage of ICT to obtain, tamper with, exchange and deliver harmful information.
  • A general understanding of Cyberstealth used to engage in criminal or deviant activities or to profile, identify, locate, stalk and engage a target.

Unlike human predators prior to the Information Age, iPredators include the multitude of benefits offered by Information and Communications Technology [ICT]. These assistances include exchange of information over long distances, rapidity of information exchanged and the seemingly infinite access to data available. Malevolent in intent, iPredators rely on their capacity to deceive others using ICT in the abstract and artificial electronic universe known as cyberspace. Therefore, as the internet naturally offers all ICT users anonymity, if they decide, iPredators actively design online profiles and diversionary tactics to remain undetected and untraceable.

Cyberstealth, a sub-tenet of iPredator, is a covert method by which iPredators attempt to establish and sustain complete anonymity while they engage in ICT activities planning their next assault, investigating innovative surveillance technologies or researching the social profiles of their next target. Concurrent with the concept of Cyberstealth is iPredator Victim Intuition [IVI]. An iPredator’s IVI is their aptitude to sense a target’s ODDOR [Offline Distress Dictates Online Response], online & offline vulnerabilities, psychological weaknesses, technological limitations, increasing their success of a cyber-attack with minimal ramifications.

“Although the benefits of Information and Communications Technology far outweigh the detriments for society, humanity has been seduced by the illusory notion that more technology translates into a better quality of life.” Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. [2014]

For proactive parents who plan to practice and institute internet safety, we have compiled a quick checklist and tips to help ensure your bases are covered. We hope this checklist helps insulate your child from abuse and leads to a safe and enjoyable school year.

FBI’s Parents Internet Safety Guide

1. FBI’s Parents Internet Safety Guide: Visit the FBI’s website and thoroughly read their excellent overview called “A Parent’s Guide to Internet Safety”. Before moving on to the next step, make sure you have written down and have easy access to your local police department’s phone numbers. To download online, enter into Google or your favorite search engine the term “FBI Parents Guide”. On the first page will be the link to read or download.

FBI Parent Guide Link: http://www.fbi.gov/stats-services/publications/parent-guide

Offline Distress Dictates Online Response

(ODDOR)

2. Offline Distress Dictates Online Response: A child is particularly prone to engage in high-risk behaviors online if he/she is feeling discouraged, angry or distressed. Do not move on to the next step until you are confident your child is feeling encouraged, stable or being monitored by a professional or trusted loved one. Of the many articles and studies we have researched, a child’s psychological status highly correlates with their online behaviors. If there are ongoing conflicts at home, recent traumatic events or any other anxiety and/or distressing events in the home, it is very important to monitor your child’s online usage.

Just as important as your child’s home environment is your child’s school environment. Given you cannot be with your child when they are at school, it is important to maintain regular contacts with school officials regarding your child’s attitudes and behaviors on school grounds. Although academics in school are a priority, your child’s demeanor with teachers and fellow students speaks to their psychological and emotional welfare. Research has directly linked a child’s school and home environments to their online activities.

Internet Safety Tips for Parents-Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.

Personal Information Prevention Planning

3. Personal Information Prevention Planning: The number one and most important issue to address with your child is the amount of personal information they share online. Getting your child to practice minimal release of their name, contact information, photographs and passwords to their social sites is highly desirable. If we were to make an approximation of the articles, we have read on Internet safety and cyber security, 99% percent of them list restriction of sharing personal information online being vital to Internet safety.

It cannot be emphasized enough, but children who disclose their contact information, personal information and images freely are at a much higher risk of being targeted by a iPredator. The goal as an internet safety proactive parent is not to totally restrict or forbade your child from sharing personal information, but to educate them on being highly cautious and consistently aware when, why and what they disclose to others.

***Research has demonstrated that the vast majority of taunting, abuse, cybercrime and sexual assault that children endure is most likely coming from their peers and/or known adults rather than unknown adult online sexual predators.***

Peers, Parents and the PTA

4. Peers, Parents and the PTA: Given that, you cannot monitor your child’s online activities when they are not in your presence; it is paramount to access those people who are expected to be. Your child’s friends, their parents and school are the three prime social targets you should be contacting. The goal is to initiate and sustain open communication with your child’s friends and their parents regarding internet safety expectations. Just because you have restricted your child from certain online activities does not mean your child’s friends are restricted or their parents have online house rules.

Using your capacity to be cordial and polite, maintain a consistent open dialogue with your child’s social circles. Regarding your child’s school environment, it is important to have an open conversation with school officials and/or the PTA to ensure that Internet safety and cyber security mechanisms are in place. Before the school year begins, contact school officials and investigate their internet safety measures, educational emphasis on Internet security and procedures for cyberbullying, cyberstalking, sexting, mobile device usage during school hours and cybercrime related to adolescent life.

Know Your Child’s Social Networking Sites

5. Know Your Child’s Social Networking Sites: Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Tagged and MyYearbook are among the most popular social networking sites children and teens look to for their cyber identity, digital reputation and online social relationships. Thanks to the internet and digital technology, many children and teens look to the digital universe for their self-esteem. Unfortunately, iPredators also choose these sites as their most favored websites spending most of their free time trolling for unsuspecting, naive, discouraged or high-risk children. Given there are 400-500 popular global social sites, and growing, it is of the utmost importance to spend time with your child discussing digital citizenship and cautious online communications.

Smartphones Need More Smarts

6. Smartphones Need More Smarts: A smartphone is a wireless phone with voice, messaging, scheduling, e-mail and internet capabilities. Research and marketing trend experts’ project sales of smartphones will exceed personal computers by 2014. In 2012, 697 million smartphones were sold. Despite the benefits of mobile digital technology, children and teens are becoming dependent on their mobile phones more than ever before.

Recent studies have suggested children who are depressed, anxious and/or discouraged spend more time interacting with their mobile devices and less time being typical children. It is vital that as a parent, you monitor the amount of time your child spends on their mobile phone and contact your phone carrier about additional security features that they may offer. If a cellphone or smartphone is in your child’s future, be sure to have the store you purchase the phone from install or set up all the necessary safety and filtering devices and software.

Internet Safety Tips for Parents-Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.

Weekly Digital Dinner

7. Weekly Digital Dinner: The term may sound absurd, but making it a habit to discuss the family’s digital habits at least once weekly during dinner is both proactive and helpful. With today’s dual parent working families and single parent households, dinnertime is one of the few weekly events that are consistent, predictable and social. By all family members discussing their internet activities, children will feel more comfortable to disclose information relevant to Internet safety and their online activities. During these weekly discussions, always make sure to discuss the importance of being highly cautious of sharing personal information online.

It is also highly recommended to discuss positive, beneficial aspects and stories about online usage to make the weekly discussions fair and balanced. Prior to every weekly digital dinner discussion, it is highly recommended to announce, to all involved, that any information shared regarding online activities will not cause punishment, retribution or embarrassment. This weekly announcement may be redundant, but it reaffirms to your children that they will not be punished for their mistakes or irresponsible online behaviors.

House Rules Include Online Rules

8. House Rules Include Online Rules: Just as children have curfews, responsibilities and chores, they also should have online rules and regulations. Based on our findings, there are no universal online rules that can be applied to children of all ages. The three that these writers feel are most relevant to children of all ages and at all times are as follows: 1. Cautious disclosure of sharing personal information online. 2. Never meeting someone met online without supervision. 3. Never share passwords to anyone other than parents. Other than this triad, parents should establish house online rules based on their child’s age, developmental maturity, knowledge and persistence of Internet safety.

In addition to the trifecta of obvious rules mentioned, research has led these writers to conclude that nighttime online usage and time patterns should be considered when negotiating or designing online rules. Research on iPredators have concluded that they prefer to troll for their victims during evening hours and at time intervals when the child or children they are targeting typically log on to the internet. The iPredator learns online log on habits and set their schedule to match the child they are targeting.

Emphasize the Child’s Developmental Achilles Heel

9. Emphasize the Child’s Developmental Achilles Heel: Part of being an effective parent is being a creative parent. All children, starting anywhere from 7-10 years of age, develop an accentuated self-awareness. Once this self-awareness begins, the child begins to worry how their peers perceive them. As they continue physical and psychological maturation, this strong focus on self-image, popularity and peer acceptance becomes their primary driving forces until they have finished college. Knowing your child will probably be experiencing these highly dramatic and emotions, you can use them advantageously regarding their online activities.

Instead of telling your child “NO”, educate them on how images and information we share online can last for years. Just as rumors of friends spread, online rumors and embarrassing images can go “viral”. Directly connecting your child’s developmental fears to their online behaviors of disclosing information is an effective and natural internet safety technique. When done in a considerate, respectful way, this method for teaching your child to be cautious of sharing personal information can be highly effective.

Online Parental Control? No Such Thing

10. Online Parental Control? No Such Thing: With the trends of today’s online community and technological advancements, insulating your child from iPredators and keeping them safe online has been ever more challenging. Ranging from home computers to mobile digital technology, children have access and exposure to multiple forms of online activities and devices. Even if you use content blockers, filters, trackers or parental control software, children have ways to get around these if their heart and minds are set on engaging in high-risk online activities.

Before purchasing security software or hardware, contact a trusted source. In every community, someone, your friends or a colleague knows a digital technology expert. Given that the market is flooded with hundreds of products, services and methods contact your local expert source and rely on their recommendations. Secondly, contact your phone and Internet Service Provider (ISP) for what they recommend to protect your child.

Mobile Devices, Mobile Children, Focused Parents

12. Mobile Devices, Mobile Children, Focused Parents: It is not hard to conclude that protecting children from the growing number of cyber attack avenues is daunting at best. Mobile Device Technology and Smartphones is quickly becoming the tool of choice for accessing and interacting in cyberspace. The trend projections of mobile device usage are astounding in which children will be a large mobile user demographic. With this inevitability, children will be left to defend themselves interacting with cyberspace for increasing periods without adult supervision.

Making matters worse, online sexual predators, cyber criminals and iPredators who target children are gleefully preparing for this shift in pediatric mobile device usage. It is crucial for all parents and adults to take the active role in ensuring the mobile device(s) given to children are purchased with the most advanced security and parental controls available. These writers cannot not emphasize enough how important it is to, not just verify the child’s mobile device is secure, but regularly monitored and habitually checked to make sure the child’s device has not been compromised.

Internet Addiction

13. Internet Addiction: Not that it has recently materialized without notice, but Internet Use Disorder, Internet Use Gaming Disorder and Internet Addiction are all synonymous terms defining the same growing trend of pathological usage of Information and Communications Technology (ICT). Although a persistent controversy exists regarding Internet Addiction being a formal mental illness, the reality is there are thousands of online users, child and adult, who report experiencing signs and symptoms quite similar to the hallmark elements of a compulsive dependency.

Contemporary Information Age society has now been introduced to Internet Addiction. Internet Addiction and its psychopathology underpinnings is a new mental illness for a new societal paradigm. Until a final determination is made on whether Internet Addiction is an actual diagnosis, potentially taking years of debate, available to parents, at no cost, is this writer’s risk assessment available for download called the Internet Addiction Risk Checklist (IARC). The link is provided here, scroll to the base of the web page and click on the print button.

Interested parties can download the web page article and no personal information is required for download.

The Cyberbullying Reich

14. The Cyberbullying Reich: As defined by Wikipedia, “Reich” is defined as a German word that roughly is translated to mean “nation” or “realm”. Given this form of pediatric abuse occur in the abstract artificial realm of cyberspace and growing at an alarming rate, the use of “Reich” seems apropos. Cyberbullying and both child aggressor and victim are new to humanity. Unknown to humanity is the impact of cyberbullying on future humanity. Although traditional bullying has existed since the inception of human civilization, the Information Revolution has made this form of “child on child abuse” just beginning to be addressed by contemporary society. What has to be experienced is the inevitable reality of cyberbully aggressors and victims growing into adults armed with years of experience in the realm of cyber abuse.

Unlike traditional bullying, occurring prior to the Information Age at schools, playgrounds and sports fields, cyberbullying is a 24/7/365 phenomenon leaving no respite for the child victim. Information technology has many benefits to humanity, but it is vital to identify and prevent the malevolent and nefarious elements that exist in cyberspace.

Internet Safety Tips for Parents-Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.

Note to Reader

Dr. Nuccitelli has provided you with a comprehensive and effective internet safety tips checklist to help reduce the chances a child becomes a target of online sexual predators, cyberbullies and/or cyberstalkers. Internet, digital technology and mobile devices will continue to influence all children, as their peers, advertising and cultural trends place pressure upon them to have the latest trending technology and access to the most popular social networking sites.

If it has not happened already, it is likely your child will approach you, on numerous occasions, pleading for the newest digital technology and/or wanting to join the growing number of social sites that will be in fashion in the future. The key to being a proactive parent is making the effort to learn about iPredators, Internet Safety, Cyber Attack Prevention and signs of Internet Addiction. The most important Internet safety advice to protect your child can be summed up in one statement:

“An iPredator will always move on to other victims when a parent takes the time to be involved, preventative and protective. Being an internet safety savvy and iPredator aware parent does not guarantee absolute online safety for your child, but it certainly reduces the odds. Not being a gambling man, I will always bet on the parent winning who makes the effort to protect their child as they travel the growing cyber universe.” Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. iPredator Inc.

50 Online Predator Prevention Tips

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.

Online Predator Prevention: Having been a practicing psychologist and forensic examiner before changing his career path to the study and investigation of online users who engage in malevolent and nefarious activities, Dr. Nuccitelli fully understands that most sexual predators are typically close in age to the child victim and usually family members, friends or intimate partners of their victims. Although this reality has been validated by prestigious researchers, the FBI in May 2011 published a three minute video estimating that any given time there are 750,000 online child predators trolling cyberspace for children.

Dr. Nuccitelli recently stated, “I don’t think society at large truly understands the widespread growth of child pornography and online sexual predators in cyberspace trolling for child targets. Whether you support them or not, in 2012 I read an article reporting that the group Anonymous, had announced their campaign to confront and thwart online sexual predators. As someone who is attempting to do the same thing, I applaud their endeavor.”

Simply stated, Online Predators are sexual predators who use Information and Communications Technology and the Internet to locate, target and victimize minors. Common forums used by Online Predators to target children include chat rooms, instant messaging or social networking sites for the purpose of flirting with and meeting others for illicit sexual experiences. Online Predators often are motivated to manipulate or “groom” a minor with the ultimate goal of meeting and engaging in sexual activity, despite knowing they are engaging in illegal activities.

In instances where meeting their victims to engage in sexual activities is not the primary objective, Online Predators also attempt to persuade children and teens to participate in some form of online sexual and/or sexually provocative activity motivated by sexual deviance or for financial gain engaging in the distribution and sale of child pornography.

As Information and Communications Technology (ICT) becomes widespread, cyber attack prevention, education and protection are areas requiring immediate attention. The Information Age has many benefits to humanity, but it is vital to identify and prevent the malevolent and nefarious elements that exist in cyberspace and Information and Communications Technology.

The typologies of iPredator include: Cyber Bullying, Cyber Harassment, Cyber Stalking, Cyber Crime, Online Sexual Predation and Cyber Terrorism. Within this construct, Cyber Harassment is the adult form of Cyber Bullying and used when the perpetrator is an adult. The definition and motivations of iPredator, Online Sexual Predation and Cyberstealth is as follows:

iPredator: A child, adult, group or nation who, directly or indirectly, engages in exploitation, victimization, stalking, theft or disparagement of others using Information and Communications Technology. iPredators are driven by deviant fantasies, desires for power and control, retribution, religious fanaticism, political reprisal, psychiatric illness, perceptual distortions, peer acceptance or personal and financial gain. iPredators can be any age, either gender and not bound by economic status, race or national heritage.

iPredator is a global term used to distinguish all online users who engage in criminal, deviant or abusive behaviors using ICT. Whether the offender is a cyber bully, cyber stalker, cyber criminal, online sexual predator, Internet troll or cyber terrorist, they fall within the scope of iPredator. There are three criteria used to define an iPredator including:

I. A self-awareness of causing harm to others, directly or indirectly, using ICT. II. The intermittent to frequent usage of ICT to obtain, exchange and deliver harmful information. III. A general understanding of Cyberstealth to engage in criminal or deviant acts or to profile, identify, locate, stalk and engage a target.

When an offender profile includes these three characteristics, they meet the definition of iPredator. A fourth criterion, not included in the triad defining an iPredator, is what I have termed iPredator Victim Intuition (IVI) and reserved for seasoned iPredators. IVI is the aptitude to sense a target’s online vulnerabilities, weaknesses and technological limitations increasing their success with minimal ramifications. iPredators, through practice and learning, develop a sense and/or skill of being able to experience an intuition to know what online user will be a successful target.

In addition to having IVI, the iPredator practices Cyberstealth using multiple covert strategies. In fact, the third criteria used to define an iPredator include a general understanding of Cyberstealth used to profile, identify, locate, stalk and engage a target. Also lying upon a continuum of expertise, iPredators are assessed as being advanced in their Cyberstealth practices as opposed to a haphazard approach of targeting a victim without attempting to hide their identity.

Often times, cyber bullies, ex-partners, ex-employees, angry or self-righteous online users, Internet trolls, organized groups with political, religious and moralistic causes, child molesters, pedophiles and highly narcissistic online users do not attempt to hide their identities. Cyberstealth is a strategy reserved for iPredators who seek to hide their identities online.

Cyberstealth, a concept formulated along with iPredator, is a term used to define a method and/or strategies by which iPredators devise tactics to establish and sustain complete anonymity while they troll and stalk an online target. In addition to a stratagem, Cyberstealth is a reality of Information and Communications Technology, that humanity often fails to fathom leading some online users to become high probability targets. Cyberstealth is a learned behavior that becomes more advanced with practice, trial and error and experimentation.

Here are 50 topics relevant to understanding the profiles of online child predators. Based on your child’s age and developmentally maturity, these 50 points can also be used as independent discussions. Whether you are a parent or educator, these topics are vital in your endeavor to educate a child on cyber security.

Predatory Troll or Fake News by Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.

todd-m-knisely-troll-michael-nuccitelli-dr-internet-safety

Todd Knisely, Predatory Troll or Fake News?

by

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.

michael-nuccitelli-todd-m.-knisely-psychopath Todd M. Knisely and his character assassination themed website, MichaelNuccitelli.Net, was best defined as a mixture of defamation, fake news, disinformation and sheer nonsense. As of January 31, 2017, his website had been down for three weeks. After contacting GoDaddy, the site was parked due to non-payment and not because it was being updated as he espoused. I can safely say that his bizarre obsession, with my work, will drive him to launch his felonious content again.

The only difference is that he can no longer use MichaelNuccitelli.Net. Effective February 9, 2017, MichaelNuccitelli.Net is now owned by yours truly. On this day, the domain was won for $12 dollars in a GoDaddy auction. When he did own it, the website alleged that I supported pedophilia, was a federal agent, neo-nazi, scammer, wife beater, pathological liar, plagiarist, attempted murderer, Anonymous wannabee and criminal. I don’t know how it’s possible, but he also purported I’m Jewish and a Neo-Nazi at the same time. The MichaelNuccitelli.Net URL is now forwarded to my new educational internet safety blog, MichaelNuccitelli.Org.

todd-m-knisely-decptive-comment-january-2017-michael-nuccitelli

Everything he’s published is utter bullshit. Todd Knisely meets criteria for an iPredator and Predatory Troll. After verifying his criminal history, felony conviction and recent arrest? It’s highly probable that he is either a psychopath or suffers from an Axis II Anti-Social Personality Disorder. I cannot validate my assumptions because I did not perform a forensic evaluation to assess his psychological functioning.

Todd M. Knisely – A Disinformation Nonsense Author

michael nuccitelli-todd-m-knisely-fake-news-image

I’m but one online user he has attacked. He’s targeted men, women, children and businesses. Mr. Knisely does not typically divulge his identity and uses the online moniker called Shadow. He is not a hacker, information security expert or cyber security professional. He is not part of the activist entity called Anonymous nor does he volunteer his time helping those who have been targeted by iPredators. He is skilled at basic programming, resides in Somerset, PA and does not own or work for a computer company. Todd M. Knisely (aka, Shadow) primarily spends his life in G+, Facebook and Twitter. It is from these social platforms that he targets online users. One of his most laughable defamatory attempts is his Google+ community titled “Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. Scammer”(Community Deleted).

The purpose of this blog post is not to defend my reputation, constructs or work, but to alert online users about Todd M. Knisely and how online assailants use the internet to troll, slander and defame others. Mr. Knisely is but one of thousands who use cyberspace to knowingly author disinformation and fake news. It is for this reason that I presented his profile before the Colorado Psychological Association (CPA) in November. 2016 and will be doing the same before the Vermont Psychological Association (VPA) in March, 2017. It is vital for citizens of the Information Age to learn about these egregious online activities.

“In cyberspace, we try to perceive each other by repetitive methods and actions. What we end up getting is a pre-constructed fictitious doppelganger conceived in our minds.” Brian Williams (2016)

todd-m-knisely-defamation-example-michael-nuccitelli

Todd M. Knisely (aka, Shadow) – Predatory Troll

Predatory Trolls: Predatory Trolls are a new breed of Internet Troll that evolved from the Classic Troll. Just as Classic Trolls, Predatory Trolls can be ex-work associates, ex-partners and loved ones. They may also be unknown online assailants. Predatory Trolls may target others alone, but increasingly work in groups (aka, Troll Triad). Like all trolls, Predatory Trolls are driven by needs for power, recognition, peer acceptance and control. Different from Classic Trolls is that their primary goal is to destroy an online user’s reputation, online presence and trustworthiness. With the advancement of Information and Communications Technology (ICT),

Predatory Trolls may be employed by groups and governments in covert operations to destroy a target’s reputation. Like all Predatory Trolls, Todd M. Knisely is proficient at cyberstealth, disinformation campaigns and online deception. He takes partial truths and adulterates them into grand felonious stories. I could spend the next 5000 words defending myself, but a simple google search of “Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.” or “iPredator” will allow you to make your own determination. If interested, one of our internet safety volunteers, Ms. Vic Urben, authored a blog post defending my reputation titled “The Real Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.”.

Thank You Todd M. Knisely (aka, Shadow)

The silver lining to Todd Knisely’s ridiculous accusations is that he validates my work and constructs. With each victim I help and with each professional organization and agency I train, his nonsense is included as an illustration. He validates iPredator. I say to Mr. Knisely? Thank You. Unfortunately, there are thousands of people who lose their jobs, families and reputations because of disinformation and fake news. It is for those people who are victimized by the Todd Knisely’s of the world that I write this web article.

“For 4+ years, Todd M. Knisely (aka, Shadow) has exploited, defamed and cyber attacked countless numbers of online users throughout G+ and other social platforms. Using his moniker called Shadow, he trolls men, women and children without remorse. Todd M. Knisely is not an information security expert, skilled hacker, Anonymous activist or iPredator profiler. He is not incorporated nor is he part of a group of concerned citizen hackers called “Shadows”. Todd M. Knisely is none of these.” Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. (2016)

Todd Knisely’s 2 Minutes of Fake News Fame

In conclusion, I leave you with one last example illustrating how skilled Todd Knisely is in the art of deception. After his arrest in August 2016, a local news station interviewed him without first verifying his preposterous story. Not only is the news clip a prime example of fake news, but the reporter actually fell for his nonsense by stating that “he runs an online conglomerate of computer hackers from all over the world called “Shadows”. I wonder why the other news outlets did not report his account of how and why he was arrested. Provided here is the link to watch his two minutes of fake news fame.
