January 2007 Lord Rick: Chapter 1 - Introduction
For Those who are unaware. Lord Rick aka AngelofThyNight is a Self Proclaimed "God", who searches abandoned buildings for evidence of ghosts. So far the evidence mainly consists of photos of ORBS and ECTOPLASAM - which is really just a wisp of smoke or Lord Ricks breath, as he is blowing infront of the camera. The image which is one of his favorite images, and his so called proof of seeing and capturing ghosts on film is linked here. As you can see its a clearly photoshopped image, as the floorboards are not even lined up. That is just one of several things I hope to uncover and shed light on in this article.
I was first made aware of Lord Rick, in September of 2006 when he posted on UER.ca soliciting for $20 from uer.ca members who wanted to venture to a well known cave with him. Being a very active member in that community, My first impression was "who is this noob? And why is asking for money?" and my second impression after reading his website was "Oh My, this guy needs serious help... he is like, a fricken cult leader!" (another link refering to the cultish style of his website). GeoViolator and myself (and a few others who decided to tag along with us) decided to meet him at the caves that night. He never showed up. Apparently these well known caves were too hard for God himself to find - and on top of that, his followers were paying him, so he could show them where the caves were. Turns out he got lost in the woods. He eventually did make it into the caves the following day however. But I guess his SWAT TEAM Flashlghts did not help him find the cave the night before. As I was there with Geo and Unlisted waiting, with a campfire burning so we could keep warm while we awaited the great LORD's arival.
Now after he finds out we were waiting for him at the caves - and after he finds out how easy they were to get to - he decided to post that we were not at the same caves he was at. Well quite frankly they are the only cave like structures in the area, and we also have photo proof. His post can be found here. "I am not a bullshitter this is for real and no I am not going to the caves you are talking about for the person who thinks they know it all. Again assumptions is the fuck up of all motherfuckers." However... As GeoViolator clearly points out... We have photo proof! Nuff Said? I think Geoviolator clearly sums it up in his post. But just for shits and giggles, here are the two photos.
Nightbird's Photo from Akron Caves - Posted on UER.ca
Lord Rick's Photo as taken from his website. This photo has since been removed from his website, so I can not provide a reference link.
As you can clearly see, the "FUCK U" at the top of the support column is clearly visible in both photos. However Lord Rick did heavily photoshop this photo to remove most of the graffiti, and add a nice ghostly effect. Not only that, in another article by Lord Rick, he actually calls these caves the Akron Caves.
Pure 100% Bullshit

Ok, now back to reality. First of all, telling law enforcment officers or government workers that they are not allowed to visit your website is a great way to attract ALOT of attention, in the bad way.
So many things to say about that disclaimer alone. First off and foremost, no judge will let someone sue someone for violating terms of service on a website - they will usually throw the case out. Website disclaimers are not binding contracts, they never have been, and they never will be. Pirates and hackers alike have tried posting similar disclaimers, only to end up getting busted by the police, and in an attempt to sue the cops who busted them, their case always gets thrown out. Another thing I noticed, was that he depicts the PGS as a non-profit entity, however he goes on to say that it partakes in commercial services aswell. Wikipedia has a good discription of the word Commercial which clearly states that "Commercial" implies a 'for-profit' activity.
in terms of legal bullshit that Lord Rick has posted (and there has been ALOT of it) let us start off here. Ok, so he is offended that a member of UER hotlinked 2 photos from Lord Rick's myspace page. These photos (Photo 1 and Photo 2) are all hosted on HIS myspace account. As such, he is the one controling their posting. He could remove them at any time. He threatens to SUE UER.ca for posting the photos. Avatar-X responds saying he can not sue UER.ca under US Code: Section 230. To this Lord Rick responds saying that he has contacted the administration of UER and has requested the photos be removed, and his request was ignored so he is on the phone with his local sheriff's dept who is appartnely telling him that UER is in big trouble for this. Little did he know, he was trying to tell the Admin of UER that he has contacted the Admin of UER in private and asked for the photos to be removed nicely, which didn't happen... so his lies kind of backfired on him. GeoViolator pointed out that perhaps Lord Rick might want the sheriff to see what else he has been encouraging his sons to do. Lord Rick also goes into detail in one of his myspace rants about the reasons behind teaching his son to use obscene hand gestures. Apparently he is mad at the people in WNY for not supporting him in his effort to explore the cave, or becomes god, or whatever... and He is also mad at his own members for not hanging out with him, or donating money to his cause.
We kind of got side tracked there, but none the less. Legally speaking, Lord Rick probably should be in jail. Threats, more Threats ("I think that you will be very happy to know that you messed with the wrong dad I would kill another man for my sons you crossed me brother and wanted my attention well now you have my attention."), more Threats (Threatening to Sue a Flordia News Channel because they refused to do a story on him), Drugs, more Drugs, more Drugs, more Drugs, Impersonation (email me for a link if you want one), Attempted Suicide, Running from the Police, Carrying a Loaded Firearm without a permit (most likely while possessing narcotics - Unable to link the last two, they were mentioned on the old PGS website before he changed it)... the list goes on. As for me, well for one, I am in Canada (notice my website is www.roadwolf.ca). I am also only posting truths and public knowlege, and linking it all to one central database, so as to further inform people about Lord Rick. I also hope that perhaps he sees where he has gone wrong, and admits that he is wrong, and steps up like a man and admits that he is sorry for the threats against various members of various web forums. His vendictive webpage which he made specifically for posting his responses to members of UER and other web forums who mock the great Lord Rick is vast and constantly growing with new negative comments towards UER members. I have read all of it myself and I know for a fact that it is ALL Bullshit. UER Never tried to blackmail Lord Rick.. blah blah blah. nothing he says happened, ever happened in reality. Perhaps he was stoned out of his mind and he thought it happened. But what someone thinks is reality, is not classified as reality.
Lord Rick was also denied entry into Canada. Therefore it is safe to assume he has committed a serious crome in the past. "Section 19 of Canada’s Immigration Act prohibits the admission of people who pose a threat to public health, safety, order, and national security. Prior to attempting a border crossing, American citizens who have had a criminal conviction in the past must contact the nearest Canadian embassy or consulate well in advance to determine their admissibility as visitors into Canada. If found inadmissible, an immigration officer will advise whether a waiver (Minister’s Permit) is possible."
Lord Rick thinks he can get away with threatening to Sue everyone who upsets him (see previous links). However, he claims to have a defence ("2. You agree NOT to hold me liable or Sue - consider this if I do not like my own governments laws do you actually think you would get money out of me seriously? I do not work I am a stay at home dad nor does my organization generate a residual income that is worth even claiming in the books I am also considered disabled.") against people Sueing him. Again, pure 100% Bullshit! Altho he does admitt he is disabled.
Lord Rick: Chapter 3 - Science, Technology and Geography
Lord Rick has a great knowlege of the world around him, and how various sciences and technologies work. Let us examine some of his postings and try and gain some of this vast knowlege for ourselves. For example here Lord Rick explains vampires, or as he calls them "VAMPYRES". As you can see, other Paranormal investigators laugh at his explanations. Feel free to check out his website and make your own judgements on his various paranormal theories. Seeing as common science does not openly accept the Paranormal, I can not say if any are true or false. However, for people who believe in the Paranormal (I am not saying I do not believe) - the fact that most if not all of his theories are pure bullshit, should stand out.
Technology is a topic I can speak on with great ease. In grade 10 I TAUGHT my science teacher how logic circuits (and/or gates) worked. Prior to that he had never known how they actually worked. I was also employed as an Engineer in a Radio Broadcasting Company - as such I was exposed to alot of the gear Lord Rick claims to have. Lord Rick's Equipment Page is quite a laugh. Let us examine it. Read more
January 2007 Lord Rick: Chapter 1 - Introduction
In the process of updating this blog, I have been considering other options to spruce up this website, and also some of the other domains I own. Among those ideas was an option to somehow integrate other domains to become other portions of this website. i.e. my railsexy.com domain could handle all my railroad related articles. But that seems kinda tricky.
One thing I did want to do, is get rid of my /blog/ directory and move the blog straight to the front page. This was a task I was concerned about for a while. I hymned and hawed about it. My main concern was in not loosing my search engine, and external links which bring traffic to the site.
That is easily solved by adding an .htaccess file in the root directory of my domain, which simply says the following:
Redirect 301 /blog http://www.roadwolf.ca
This allows any incoming link request going to /blog to continue to the root domain instead, without losing the rest of the path information. So if you go to http://www.roadwolf.ca/blog/?page_id=78 now, you will end up at http://www.roadwolf.ca/?page_id=78. Well that is easy enough. But first we have to move the site.
My option was to just go for it through a FTP editor like FileZilla. I simply copied every file and folder in my /blog directory, and transferred it to my root. Of course then I couldn't access my Admin functions, as I kind of expected. I added the .htaccess file however, and the site began to work for viewing purposes. So it was offline to the public maybe for about a minute.
To get into the admin controls, I had to go in through phpMyAdmin, and edit the SQL Database. I found the database and then looked through wp_options, and edited siteurl as needed.
Upon saving that, I was able to log in again and enter my wp_admin Dashboard, and fix the other URL entry which needed to be updated for full functionality. For some reason I think siteurl in SQL equates to the WordPress URL. The Site Address URL in the WordPress settings page is different and you need to change that too. My Permalinks were already changed when I checked them, and everything seems to be working okay.
All in all, it took longer to write this post, then it did to make this change - which wasn't very long (about 5 minutes).
So there ya have it! Don't be afraid, go for it if this is something you have been thinking of doing on your own site.
Note: I found that comments may not be functioning properly. Please email me if you have a comment and I will post it. Read more
I stole this from somewhere a while back, but I forget where:
Bill Gates recently gave a Commencement speech at a High School about 11 things they did not and will not learn in school. He talks about how feel-good, politically correct teachings created a generation of kids with no concept of reality and how this concept set them up for failure in the real world.
Rule 1: Life is not fair - get used to it!
Rule 2: The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.
Rule 3: You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice-president with a private limo and jet until you earn them.
Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.
Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: they called it opportunity.
Rule 6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your mistakes; learn from them.
Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.
Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.
Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time.
Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.
Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one. Read more
Just want to touch on the other websites I run. I will start off with AngelofthyNight.com. AOTN.com has kind of died down lately. Alot of key people have lost interest and taken on other interests at this time. While all the content on AOTN.com is saved and can be restored at a moments notice, I have no plans to bring it back anytime soon. The angelofthynight.com domain is also open for transfer if someone else wanted to purchase it. I would give them the files and database dumps if they wanted to take it over. I just can't really justify spending 10 bucks right now to transfer it to my new hosting service. At the moment, my main priority is the fastlanecrew.com domain. Clan members have donated and thusly I must get that up and running ASAP. The transfer of domains is in progress and will be complete in the next few days. I want to make a note that the roadwolf.ca domain is up so quickly because the only thing involved for me to get it up was to upload files and redirect the DNS settings. With my other domains, since I am cancelling my previous hosting service, I must transfer domain ownership between hosts, and thusly that takes a little more time. As for the deptofmagic.org domain for my WoW Guild. I can't afford to transfer it at this time, but I would if someone could handle the costs to transfer it. This will take about 5 days. That being said, I have all the files and database to get it back online ASAP once it does get transfered. If you were brought here via other domains, they likely were not widely used domains of mine. I also had some domains I had set up for friends, and they will be back up, if the owner so requests that they remain up. Otherwise they will remain down. Read more
I so very rarely check Lord Ricks website. While I may run angelofthynight.com I have generally lost interest in Rick some 2 years ago. It is however extremely entertaining sometimes to read what other people have wrote about him, and that is why I keep AOTN.com up. It should also be noted that we are changing our focus over at AOTN.com and focusing on warning the world about internet predators in general. Not just Lord Rick. You will have to read thru the posts on AOTN.com in order to see what I am talking about in that regard. This post is about the absurdly funny section which Lord Rick has posted about me on his website. Of course I suggest that you use protection when viewing that website. Ricky has enough shitty code on there to stink up grand central station. Of course anyone who knows me, knows how laughably inaccurate and out of context every single item on that webpage is about me. Obviously this drug dependant looser has some serious fetish with me, if he takes the time to photoshop numerous photos, and create so much laughable content. To Lord Rick, my favorite stalker: I really do not care what you say about me :) There is NOTHING you can do to me, and if you think there is something you can do to me, I say bring it on. I could very well have charged you for attempted blackmail already - not that anything you could tell anyone would be remotely accurate or threatening to me. Rick seems to think I am an evil terrorist who is a threat of some sort... This coming from a cult leader who smokes pot all day and trolls craigslist looking for underage pussy. I maintain an open communication with anyone I deal with, I am always honest. While sometimes my actions may be questionable or immoral to some, they are nothing I can be charged for. Lord Rick on the other hand has a nice long list of charges which the good folks at AOTN.com are keeping track of, along with reference material. Lord Rick is a fraud, a cultist, and a loser who depends on others to pull him through life and make him feel like a 'God' that he claims to be. He seems to have this delusional mindset that he is destined for great things, and nothing can stop him. He is a danger to himself, his children and anyone he is with. Sadly one person has already died because of one of his foolish choices. I am happy to be a Wisemen. One of Five. We patrol the internet keeping everyone informed on internet whackos. If you wish to apply to become a wisemen and help keep the internet safe from creeps like this, please feel free to email me to find out how. Read more
