The EVIL EDNA / PSYOPTI-CON clown

What have I missed? It must have been something in dopeycop's Mental Disorder thread or "Are Movies Unwatchable?", which I can't answer, because I don't watch movies. So I usually just hit the 'Forum Read' link on those ones. That aside what is going on with EE?
Oh, just another case of 'deep' trolling, Brian - not much worth anyone's time. But since you're asking, here's a brief summary of this umpteenth, tiresome troll-infiltration episode.
The "Evil Edna" character (aka "Psyopticon" over at Fakeologist.com) first registered here in November last year. Here's an extract of EE's intro:
Hello Cluesforum! I'm Evil Edna originally from Shepherd's Bush, London, cauldron of the modern psyop. [oh, thx for the frankness! - ed.]
Not sure which part of Cluesforum I enjoy the most. Some days it's the NA$A hoax-busting you all do. Other days there's immense satisfaction from watching the final nails being driven into the worm-ridden coffin of the ogrish 911 Myth. And sometimes I just likes to sit and giggle as the shills work relentlessly, trying to breathe new life into worn-out old hoaxes
On other forums, I try my best to point those awakening towards Cluesforum.
Lovely intro, huh? Well, as his first forum 'contribution', EE immediately went on to make some horridly flawed photo analyses of the Glasgow Clutha 'incident' ("police helicopter crashing into pub rooftop"). Hoi Polloi immediately smelled a rat (and rightly so - as it turns out), called him out on it and suspended his account: http://cluesforum.info/viewtopic.php?p=2388524#p2388524
Our good member BTO ( bostonterrierowner ) worried that this was a tad too harsh / hasty of a punishment - and so I decided to give EE a second chance (dang! - I should learn to trust Hoi's razor-sharp intuition and "sixth sense" on these matters!) and reinstated him.
Here's EE's fawning post in which he sheepishly promised to do better and to sharpen up :
Hi, I just want to say thank you for giving me a second chance. I will endeavour to maintain a much higher standard of image analysis in the future. And just as importantly, I want to apologise, especially to Lux, for my insulting tone, and to Hoi Polloi, who was also very patient in explaining where and why my logic was flawed. While it would seem possible that many key photos from Glasgow are faked, that is irrelevant when the poor points I was trying to argue didn't prove a thing. As Hoi and Lux have advised, I will properly study the subjects of parallax/perspective before commenting again. Maybe I can also try to reassure that my motives for participating here were always sound, and remain so. All the research documented in September Clues and Clues Forum has proved unquestionably accurate, and I would never challenge that.Whenever possible I do try to disseminate your work to the wider audience, and will continue to do that whether or not a forum member. There is certainly no wish on my part to undermine any of the groundbreaking work you guys have been doing over many years now. I'm sorry everyone.
Straight out of the "Bootlicker's Soft-Soap Manual", you might say... Note how EE stresses his (implied) 'unconditional trust' in our work - and that he would "never challenge the unquestionably accurate research documented in September Clues and Clues Forum"...
EE then turned up as "Psyopticon" over at Fakeologist.com (making no secret that he was known as "Evil Edna" over here). For weeks on end, he went on to flood Ab's site with a relentless stream of seemingly 'knowledgeable research' on all sorts of topics, ostensibly (in hindsight) to build up for himself some 'street cred' within Ab's readership and radio listeners. Of course, EE would intersperse his endless ramblings with some fairly interesting stuff (as he also did here for a while) - so as to maintain a margin of credibility, an age-old 101 shilling tactic if there ever was one.
EE then joined / called-in to a few audio-chats (frequented by Ab and his international members / listeners) and proceeded to act like an obnoxious twat - and eventually accusing every single one of them to be shills & fakes. Utter mayhem ensued, as EE's slithering divide-and-conquer tactics briefly managed to make everyone suspect of each other - and even to make some of Ab's longtime members 'abandon ship' in disgust. Reminds me of the 'bad ol' days' when "ozzybinoswald" and "Dduck" played out their lame dog-and-pony show over here, causing dire strife and mayhem with their insider-fighting antics (the two clowns are now, of course, both to be found huddling over at Phil Jayhan's Let's Troll forums).
So what took us so long (both Fakeologist and Cluesforum) to boot the EE clown out of our tranquil discussion gardens?
Well, as I said, EE occasionally submitted some seemingly good info on various topics and had me also, for a while, 'sitting on the fence' about the personage. I tend to let shills burn themselves out with their own antics, so as not to be accused of being overly zealous and ban happy. Well, as it is, EE's burnout came pretty quickly, as he posted this completely made-up bullshit story on our ISS thread:
ISS SHILL ALERT:
Right on cue - and unsurprisingly - "Psyopticon / aka Evil Edna" is now also to be found over at "Let's Troll" - which has long been the "go-to" retreat-cove for the various shills and antagonists of our (entirely independent and unfunded) research endeavors. And right on cue, EE has done a sudden 180° flip-flop, 'morphing' overnight from an enthusiastic Cluesforum fan and admirer - to an all-out enemy somberly accusing me of being a non-existing multiple entity created by the Tavistock Institute ...
And so it goes...
