LNM Radio Network
Internet Radio Troll Campaigns?
Late Night in the Midlands
LNM Radio Network, Michael Vara, Secret Teachings owner Ryan Gable & their uninformed listeners are the reasons why this writer has authored this series of blog posts. This is Part II addressing Internet Radio Troll Tactics & Campaigns serving the purpose to educate online users who actively listen to internet radio. As this writer frequently listens to internet radio, enjoying the range of topics to choose from, there are those shows that disseminate felonious information and/or use internet radio platforms to target and defame other online users. It is unfortunate in this example, it is this writer who was the target. For those interested in reading the first post, the links to iPredator’s Dark Psychology & Dr. Internet Safety blogs are provided here:

Michael Vara & LNM Radio Network – Internet Radio Trolls?
Visit Dr. Internet Safety to read part one of a series of educational posts addressing a new subset of Internet Troll called Internet Radio Trolls.
“For students and those intrigued by forensics, criminal psychology & the darkside of human consciousness, spend some time reviewing the profiles of Jim Jones, David Koresh, Marshall Applewhite & Shoko Asahara. Not that Internet Radio Trolls come close in psychopathy and grandiosity as these cult leaders, but how Internet Radio Troll listeners follow them blindly by never questioning their authority is what is eerily similar.” Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. (2014)
LNM Radio Network & The Secret Teachings
Note to LNM & Secret Teachings: At any time, iPredator Inc., this writer and his associates remain receptive to removing all personal identification from this page and in social sites. In return, Michael Vara, LNM Radio Network, Ryan Gable, Secret Teachings, Last Frequency & their listeners agree to cease and desist with their habitual attempts at defaming iPredator & this writer. As previously offered, Michael Vara is requested to make a quick announcement on air directing his listeners to refrain from further abuse.
This post and the entire LNM Radio Network & Internet Radio Troll series are this writer’s words in defense of his career and character. The only reason for having to author these is because LNM Radio Network, Michael Vara and owner, Ryan Gable, refuses to delete or edit their defamatory remarks after requests by this writer. Please know that this writer volunteered his time for three years in exchange for occasional shows disseminating Internet Safety, iPredator & Cyber Attack Prevention Education.
This writer personally created and designed approximately 80-100 images specific to LNM Radio Network and their guest expert topics. Also over the last three years, this writer was a guest 15-20 times, regularly interacted with LNM radio listeners and even assisted many of them when they experienced online & offline issues. If ever challenged by these claims now disclosed, this writer has no problem publishing email exchanges verifying his assistance.
Most amazing is that in two nights, after the August 28th & August 29th shows, this writer was instantly transformed into the proverbial AntiChrist. One would think that some of LNM Radio Network’s listeners would question his obvious felonious claims spewed live on air, but not one listener questioned his claims. Most disturbing was not even those listeners who had previously thanked him for his contributions and educational materials spoke a word of dissent.
This writer does not view Michael Vara, Secret Teachings, Last Frequency, LNM Radio Network or their listeners with disdain. The evidence documented within this writer’s posts illustrate how a small time internet radio show host and his younger co-host, perceive themselves as visionary. On any night Monday-Friday from 9pm-12am EST, anyone can listen to their shows while reading chat room disciples bantering about how brilliant and visionary Michael Vara & Ryan Gable are on a weekly basis. To watch the LNM listeners in action, the direct link is provided here. If you do visit, simply click the (play) button in the audio player and then click the (sign in) button in the chatroom player. Clicking the chat room (sign in) button does not divulge your identity, but simply allows you to follow along in real time.

Provided here are the two YouTube archived shows that LNM Radio Network & owner Michael Vara refused to delete or edit removing his defamatory remarks. Update 9/12/14: Thank you Spreaker for deleting their inflammatory August 28th & 29th shows targeting iPredator Inc., Dr. Nuccitelli & our internet safety initiatives. Hopefully, this writer and iPredator Inc. supporters can encourage others to flag these same shows in YouTube for deletion. For those willing to help, here are the two YouTube LNM Radio Network Show links we are hoping they will delete. If you have a Google/YouTube account and would like to assist us, visit these links and flag them if you find them defamatory, Although there shows are 3 hours long, their defamation begins within the 1st 10-15 minutes of each show. If you have a problem locating simply Google the titles of each show. Thank you for your help.
12-26-14 Good News Update
12-26-14 Good News Update: As of the last check on 12/25/14, these two defamation themed LNM shows have finally been removed. Thank you YouTube! Given Michael Vara’s entire YouTube Channel was recently deactivated due to multiple infractions of YouTube’s Terms of Service, there is a high probability that removing these shows were required in order to have his channel reactivated. Given Michael Vara regurgitates live on air that he’s always honest with his listeners and has nothing to hide, do you think he told his listeners the truth? All that matters is that cyber justice has caught up with Michael Vara and his juvenile tactics. Again, iPredator Inc. thanks YouTube.

Internet Troll Definition
Internet Troll: An Internet Troll is a colloquial expression used to define an online user who uses Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to purposely and actively provoke, defame, anger, tease, flame, or incite other online users. More often than not, the Internet Troll does not know the target recipient(s) of their vitriolic statements and behaviors. Internet Trolls regularly appear in all forms of online mediums ranging from online video gaming gatherings to chatroom and forum discussions. When the Internet Troll’s inflammatory statements and actions do not include a direct or implied physical threat to the target(s), their behavior is categorizes as cyber harassment. If the Troll’s verbal assaults include direct or implied physical threats to their target(s), their actions are then defined as cyberstalking.
The motivations for an Internet Troll’s provocative, and oftentimes, bizarre behaviors are numerous. Despite the variations in modus operandi, the vast majority of Trolls are seeking attention, recognition, stimulation pseudo-notoriety and retribution for some unknown perceived injustice. Although there is no hard evidence or clinical research validating the psychology of the Internet Troll, it is commonly believed that the “Veil of Anonymity” afforded to every online user inspires some to engage in egregious behaviors. Those who have begun to investigate the etiology of the Troll suggest that the anonymity of the internet contributes to what has been called, disinhibition effect. It has been postulated that internet anonymity leads some to behave in asocial ways coupled with a lack of guilt or remorse for the harm they cause not being in the target’s physical presence or even knowing their identity.
- Most often gender male.
- Spends long periods of time online and likely internet addicted or at risk for becoming internet dependent.
- Meets all three criteria for being categorized as an iPredator.
- 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.
- Tends to have few offline friends and online friends often engage in the same type of online harassment.
- Highly susceptible to the states of deindividuation and the disinhibition effect experienced, to some degree, by all online users. For Internet Trolls, these states are highly influential in their online lives.
- They are psychopathological in experiencing power and control online fueled by their offline reality of being insignificant, angry and alone.
- The severity and magnitude of psychological abuse they inflict upon their online targets is directly correlated to their probability of suffering from an Axis I, Axis II or Dual Diagnose mental illness.
- When online, exhibit a lack of empathy, have minimal capacity to experience shame or guilt and behaves with callousness and a grandiose sense of self.
- From a psychodynamic standpoint, Internet Trolls create and sustain an intra-psychic myth of power, greatness and domination. Although all humanity is guided through life by internal myths and archetypes, the Internet Troll’s myths and archetypes are highly distorted.
- They are developmentally immature, tend to be chronically isolated and have had minimal to no intimate relationships.
2014 Year End Note: As of December 2014, and assuredly moving into 2015, Michael Vara and his LNM Radio supporter’s defamation and slander continues, combined with inventing preposterous stories of nefarious campaigns, that I’m spearheading, to shut down their website and shows. Although I’ve compiled an enormous database of evidence all pointing to LNM Radio Network, Michael Vara and his associates as being the source of these attacks, I’m ethically bound to say the information contained herein are allegations until a court of law makes the final determination. Thanks to iPredator legal representatives who have reviewed my evidence, LNM Radio Network, Michael Vara & his associates documented ongoing attempts to change and alter my compiled evidence makes them even more culpable then if they did nothing at all.
Having absolutely no evidence of my involvement with his show, other than briefly allowing an associate to house his unfinished documentary in our Google Drive, I can only conclude their ongoing defamatory campaigns are designed to increase donations and listener support. I can only hope Mr. Vara and his associates bring in the New Year with a resolution focused on using ethical and honest marketing campaigns as opposed to defamation and paranoia filled nonsense.
