I am putting on my Sherlock hat for another commentary in which I uncover the facts and expose the truth about what certain people are attempting to get away with here in blog land. The individual being outed today is one Rusty Shackelford and the fact that he has been getting away with the spoofing of the IDs of other bloggers. Today this ends with my revelation of the facts.
My uncovering of the truth began with a slip-up by the blogger using the account "Guess Who". On 9/04/2013 at 4:33pm Guess Who published a comment and immediately removed it (the entry now reads "This comment has been removed by the author"). Six minutes later George Whyte posted the following...
George Whyte: Sorry Dervy old boy, I must apologize, I'm not feeling very well and I really do agree that Obama is a bit off the wall and I was ashamed to say so because of all my previous posts. And I am here today to admit that Barack Obama is NOT The Messiah. And as for Eric Holder, he is a fraud and a crook. These two are more like Cheech and Chong on steroids, pot and crack. Obama and Holder have several things in common in that they both have fathers not born in America, they both have an extreme dislike for White people and Christians, they both hate the Constitution as written and they are being allowed to destroy America bit by bit without a fight so far.

The odd thing is both commenters, Guess Who and George Whyte, used the same profile picture. Curious as to what Guess Who said (in the comment he removed himself), I went to my email inbox and looked for the comment (Blogger emails all comments to me, therefore I can read ALL COMMENTS submitted, even if they are deleted). The comment Guess Who self-deleted was EXACTLY the same as the comment made 6 minutes later by George Whyte. Furthermore, another comment by George Whyte was made in reply to the "George Whyte" comment I quote above. This comment is as follows...
George Whyte: Mr. Sanders, the above cheating liar is an impostor. Just link to its name and see that it has blocked any access to its blog information, such as when it started blogging, because I exposed the liar and cheat. I started my blog in August 2012, the above lying asshole did not. And the above lying asshole stole my avatar again.
Too bad you've attracted liars and shitheads to your blog. You need to delete the assholes, otherwise people won't want to post on a blog where these assholes steal other bloggers identities, as the above asshole has. (9/04/2013 5:12 PM)
From this exchange it is easy to deduce that Guess Who changed his avatar to match George Whyte's (the real George Whyte) and submitted his comment. He intended to, but forgot to change his Blogger ID. When he realized his error he deleted his comment, went into his Blogger account and changed his ID, and then reposted the same comment. Afterward he changed his ID back to Guess Who. His profile is, by the way, hidden from scrutiny, as he has set his profile to not display. Click either Guess Who or "George Whyte" (the first fake "George Whyte" comment) and they both take you to a page that says "Profile Not Available". However, when you click on the comment by the George Whyte who says the other one is an impostor, you get an actual profile.
In response to these two comments, the Guess Who deleted comment and the (fake) George Whyte comment that ends with an assertion that our president hates the Constitution, I published the following...
Dervish Sanders: I think "Guess Who" forgot to change the name on his account before posting the comment above impersonating George Whyte. The deleted comment above (looked at it in my email inbox) is EXACTLY the same as the one from "George Whyte". Caught in the act. (9/04/2013 4:47 PM)
And in response to this comment by me Rusty Shackelford said...
Rusty Shackelford: You've solved another case Sherlock... most impressive Holmes, most impressive! (9/04/2013 5:54 PM)
The reason Rusty wanted to interject himself at this point was, I believe, was because Rusty is Guess Who and Rusty is the one who spoofed George Whyte's ID. This comment was his way of laughing at me... laughing because I correctly deduced that Guess Who was the spoofer, but did not guess that Guess Who was Rusty.
So what makes me think that Rusty is Guess Who? I was doing some research for another post when I came across a prior comment by Shaw Kenawe. In this comment Shaw presents evidence that Rusty and Guess Who are accounts controlled by the same person. I have copied and pasted Shaw's comment below...
Shaw Kenawe: DS, your resident troll, Rusty Shackelford, spreads his slander around the blogsphere like a farmer spreads manure in his fields -- except the farmer's manure is useful. Here's what he left on AOW's blog about me:
Guess Who [August 17, 2013 at 7:15:00 AM] The moron Shaw Kawae had George Zimmerman guilty of first degree murder and Paula Deen ready to be stoned to death in a public park, or thrown in prison for life for racial hate crimes (after all, she used the "N" word 30 years ago! Well this dumb-ass Lib was wrong on both counts. this progressive PC twit see's a racist behind every tree and walking up every dark street. She clearly believes every thing that pours our of the vicious mouths of Sharpton, Jackson and yes of course Obama's. In her blind eyes there is NEVER a guilty Black on a White who may have had a good reason to do what they did.
And he left this here:
Rusty Shackelford [8/13/2013 11:13 AM] The moron Col Sanders had Zimmerman guilty of first degree murder and Paula Deen in prison for racial hate crimes. duh, dead wrong on both counts. the twit see's a racist behind every tree.
The poor benighted spammer. Couldn't come up with original drivel for each of the con blogs he infests, so he just interchanged our names -- and couldn't manage to spell mine correctly, either. So sad. (8/17/2013 1:35 PM)
Two very similar comments, one by Guess Who and another by Rusty Shackelford... proof that the Guess Who account is controlled by Rusty. BTW, Rusty went back and deleted all his comments from the "Always On Watch" blog in an attempt to cover his tracks (if you click the link for the Guess Who blathering Shaw quoted all you will find is a comment with the same time stamp that now says "This comment has been removed by the author").
Nice try, Rusty, but you've been caught. Your Guess Who comment that Shaw copied before you deleted it proves you are Guess Who. And, as I've already pointed out, it was Guess Who that spoofed George Whyte's ID. Caught again. I'm going to have to agree with Shaw on this one... Rusty's behavior here has been sad, as well as pathetic. Guess who? I guess Rusty.
