Fakeologist.com doesn’t love back

Be the 1st to vote.

One would think that listening to 5 hours of talk about you and your website would be the ultimate thrill.

Sadly,  this audio was not.  Between the nervous laughter and moaning and groaning,  with the odd mashup of my shows’ past clips made into deceitful phrases, it was not a pleasant experience for me.

It’s always a risk that people you help may come back to bite you.  That’s why I don’t invest emotion into those I  choose to help out via this site.  I encourage all to stay independent and I try and provide tools I use to create this site and how to use them.

I enjoyed many off air calls with Banazir.  I offered many private insights and much personal assistance on top of what listeners heard on the air. Banazir is a smart fakeologist and an asset to this site. I’ve enjoyed our acquaintance.

My main takeaway from this audio (db21) is that I cannot be trusted.  I accept that.  I encourage scepticism, as it is the crux of media research. If I portray my research and site in a way that is shill like to you,  then you should move on (and many have). You can even start your own site, since that can give you the opportunity to shape it in your own vision. The Internet is made for that.

Dustban and fakeologist.com will therefore take their own paths from this point forward.  They are always welcome to contribute here,  but it seems wise to remain free from distraction and infighting for the greater good of hoax research. I’ll audiochat or raw call with them anytime if they wish,  but I hardly want to focus my energy on defending my position on past perceived slights.

I wish both of them well in their journey.


I’m nice but dim

  2. simonshack

    With the various posts here by Blue Moon, UNreal, Ab and Columjaddica ALL being thumbed-down about 35 times, it is more than obvious that a crass, concerted attempt is currently underway to try and sabotage this site. Pretty damn childish antics, really – but that’s all they’ve got, it seems.

    Funnily enough, such lame ‘attacks’ (which I’m all-too-familiar with – Cluesforum having, well, seen it all before…) only go to show that ‘they’ are truly concerned about discussion sites such as ours. As it is, we should all feel pleased and ‘honored’ to arouse such attention from the scumbags of this world.

    Come on now, you sad little trolling squad – start clicking away: I want my 35 thumbs-down too ! 😛

    1. PeterShea

      simon. much respect. to the satisfaction of all, answer banazir’s question please.
      how can you copyright as of 1999 the ‘weatherman’ song and video and feature at the same time within the video a time magazine publication dated april 2000? no bullshit please simon.

      dusty and banazir; you are of course justified in your concerns, but all only serves to show just how deep a whole within a hole we have indeed found ourselves.
      for me, all’s well that ends well, my dear friends.
      all is still looking good. love you maggie. love is all around. in spite of everything.

      1. PeterShea

        and I guess on reflection pcake is meant to mean pee cake – one of those deodorant thingys to be found in your-eye-nils. good one evil! piss off mate!

        Hi Peter: OK if you read his Youtube caption carefully

        Published on May 15, 2012

        “Weatherchange” is all about the silly, fearmongering, corporate hoax that goes by the name of “global warming”. It’s an old song and video which was recorded and filmed in my house (& home recording studio) with a bunch of friends back in 2000 (the song was recorded in 1999). This was well before I formed my band The Social Service…
        etc etc…

        Yes the first frame of the video states the song was recorded and filmed in 1999.

        However, in the caption below, Simon states the SONG (audio portion) was recorded in 1999 and that the VIDEO was shot in 2000. Mystery solved folks…the magazine was current when the VIDEO portion was filmed.

        IMHO, I dont think it is a stretch to imagine that when he created the first frame during editing, that he felt he needed to mention (or even remembered) that the song and video were created in different years. Who would care? Since the song was created in 1999, it would satisfy the audience to know that the project was created in 1999. But for the Youtube caption he gave more accurate information as to the creation of project….the audio song, 1999, and the video for it, 2000.

        Why don’t you just read the video description?
        “”Weatherchange” is all about the silly, fearmongering, corporate hoax that goes by the name of “global warming”. It’s an old song and video which was recorded and filmed in my house (& home recording studio) with a bunch of friends back in 2000 (the song was recorded in 1999). ”

        “No bullshit, please?” – say you? Well, Pshea – the only bullshit odor I smell here emanates from the various clowns who are making a BIG SILLY DEAL about me typing “1999” instead of “2000” in the intro credits to that video. For your information, the first clown who started this BS (back in 2012) was a former Cluesforum member, one “Kentrailer” -aka- “Paulstal Service” -aka- “Norway research” -aka -“SanLuisSkywatch.

        Here is one (of his many) “damning-Shack-busting- videos” (*rolleyes*) – going on about the silly 1999/ 2000 “issue”: www.youtube.com/watch?feature=…

        Today, we have another (?) multiple-alias entity known as “Psyopticon” -aka- “Evil Edna” -aka- “Psyoptickle” – aka- “Shackwatch”, another former Cluesforum member, who has ‘revived’ (over at Let’s troll forums) the very same idiotic “issue” of my 1999 / 2000 typo.

        As it is, the anonymous “Psyopticon” (-aka- “Evil Edna” -aka- “Psyoptickle” – aka- “Shackwatch”) and the anonymous “Kentrailer” ( -aka- “Paulstal Service” -aka- “Norway research” -aka -“SanLuisSkywatch”) share pretty much the same ‘behavioral history’.

        The two of them :

        – Both registered at Cluesforum as enthusiastic and fairly active / prolific supporters of our efforts (including our NASA research) – only to suddenly flip-flop at 180° for no apparent / rational reason.

        – Both – after being duly (if belatedly) banned for trolling – immediately registered at Let’s Troll forums and started poo-pooing Cluesforum and yours truly – claiming that we are nothing but disinfo – and that I am “a multiple / fake entity” posting under numerous aliases…

        – Both made a BIG SILLY DEAL out of the “damning / sinister Weatherchange video 1999 / 2000 issue”…

        Sad to see Banazir and Dusty falling for such crass trolling antics – but they may (hopefully) realize they’ve just been temporarily bamboozled – much like two other young Canadian researchers (“Lord Tsukasa” and “SparkOfLife”) were a few years ago – ‘courtesy of’ none other than Markus Allen Goldstein (who temporarily convinced them that i was a ‘fake’). The two of them have since mailed me admitting that they’d been (briefly) hoodwinked by Markus Allen’s slithering “charm”.

        “All’s well that ends well” – indeed ! 🙂

        1. ab Post author

          Thumbs up for that post Simon (let’s encourage others to simply reply with a thimbs up (or down) message since I’ve disabled the unsecured poll feature).

          Apparently the latest hoaxbusterscall.com call has Markus receiving the Dustban boys for a briefing. Your history above helps explain.

          1. Carole Thomas

            Thumbs up to all Fakeologists and here’s hoping we can continue without all these distractions. None of us really “know” each other. all we can go on is our gut feelings and the quality of the research. It seems to me that Simon, Ab, Jan, Tom, Hoi, K, smj, Unreal, Blue Moon and too many to mention have proven themselves on both counts. I hope Dustban and Johnny Clues will be discriminating in their further adventures. Not everyone has Chris Kendall’s sovereign sense of autonomy.

          2. simonshack

            I guess Karl Marx got at least one thing right …

            “History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.”

            In this particular case, it was indeed a bit of a ‘tragedy’ that (some years back) Markus Allen managed to hoodwink two smart, tireless & prolific young Canadian researchers such as Lord Tsukasa and SparkOfLife.

            Whereas today, as ‘history repeats itself’, it is a bit of a farce that Markus Allen has managed to hoodwink two mere (former) Canadian cheerleaders who have – as far as I can tell – produced little or no actual / substantial research at all.

            In this case, the saying “good riddance to bad rubbish” seems appropriate.

          3. columjaddica

            I started out unsure about this whole thing, but not willing to just abandon AB over a plain old disruption shill. Also I didn’t really understand what had happened. After listening to the show a few times I agree that psyopticon wasn’t handled properly but I can’t just throw out a hundred mostly good radio shows over one thing. It really seems like the way things went down this was probably exactly what psyopticon was aiming for. He’s apparently very good at what he does

            The whole 1999 Simon Shack video controversy is just kind of stupid. I just don’t see the significance.

            Basically just giving another thumbs up here!

            I hope this settles out over time and people can reconcile or at least move on.

            I’ve enjoyed most of the DustBan shows quite a bit and I hope they continue making them and get a chance to talk about topics they felt were off-limits before. Like the persistent contrail thing, there are a bunch of different ways to look at it and I’m sure you could fill a whole show on just that and the general group of “fakeologists” seem to have a wider range of opinions than you’d get on some chemtrails forum.

            Another topic I’d love to hear a show on is the Ebola thing. All of this crazy shit going on and we’re arguing over the identities of each other when it’s impossible for any of us to definitively prove that we’re legitimate.

          4. Banazîr Galbasi

            Nearly five hours of audio dedicated to several problems and the smallest (but apparently the most interesting) topic of 1999/2000 music video is all that gets discussed. Need I say more?

            Someone (Pierce Scrim) mentioned that the them of this episode was “(What is the reason) you just never get an answer”.

            Thanks for answering but one of the concerns. But why if his written response came long before we asked the question to Simon last December or so, didn’t he just say so then?

            The point is many people are vague with responses. A small insignificant detail though it was, speaks volumes when exploring a larger picture. If there is a simple answer, give a simple response. That’s all we were looking for in the first place!

            Anway, how’s the weather out there guys? Apparently the inane brings more interesting subjects to light. (and a happy 9/11 to you all too!)

            Cheers guys.

          5. simonshack


            I listened to about half of your nearly five hour show. It all sounded as a full-fledged dissing of Fakeologist.com and Cluesforum.info. Pretty surreal stuff, if you ask me.

            Why don’t you just submit all of the specific questions you have about me and my research right here? I’ll be glad to answer them. Alternatively, you can call me on Skype – and, if you’re a honest guy, I’m absolutely sure that we can work this out. You already know my skype username – “simon.shack”.

            Call me whenever you see me online on Skype – and I’ll be glad to answer all of your questions. In fact, I wonder why neither you or Dusty have never called me for all of this time. Didn’t you think it was worthwhile to talk to me – before forming your opinions about me and my forum’s efforts? Yes, you DID invite me once to your Dustban show – but I was truly busy at the time and couldn’t make it. Sorry about that.

          6. el sushi de la mancha

            In response to the last Banazir’s comment following Simon’s last statement.
            “Call me whenever you see me online on Skype – and I’ll be glad to answer all of your questions. In fact, I wonder why neither you or Dusty have never called me for all of this time.”

            Read more: fakeologist.com/2014/10/07/fak…

            That would definitely be the very first thing to do in the first place, Benazir and Dusty. Claiming that Simon is allegedly avoiding your very specific questions tends to show your eagerness to make this thing spin over and over again in order to confuse everyone…but there’s no such a thing and you both know it (5 hours long show addressing nonsensical issues…that’s another very strange thing to do). I just hope you both will clarify this with Simon over Skype…no one is running away at that point.

  3. FauxCapitalist

    Ab, one of their grievances was, according to them, a lack of interest in discussing chemtrails, with the justification that it didn’t fit in with the theme of fakery with the site name change form Abirato to Fakeology. I, for one, would like to hear a discussion of chemtrails on future shows and on this site, as there is a relation to gatekeepers and 9/11, as Michael Rivero, in addition to acting suspicious in attacking those who say Flight 77 didn’t hit the Pentagon, also doesn’t allow for any discussion of chemtrails.

    There is a media fakery aspect to it as well, as the current Wikipedia page on chemtrail has the nerve to have two of the most pointed to pictures that those have pointed to as evidence of chemtrails — a high-flying plane showing huge streaks and the sky filled up with all sorts of weird looking trails.

    Also, Psyopticon was claiming that there was nothing to chemtrails, and then we found out he was a shill, and therefore his denial could have been intentional for that reason.

  4. Jiller

    Ab, you’re right, the audio is disturbing. Your response is quite magnanimous. I only came across Fakeologist this past April so I don’t know how far they go back with you but I did enjoy their shows and I have seen the EE/POC debacle unfold. However, I don’t understand the unwarranted criticism of you. Quite frankly it seems everyone on your site capitulated and banned the psyopticon character…doubled banned him…kicked off the prestigious CluesForum too…what more do they want!!! I have only listened to about 30/40 minutes of their show but I intend to listen to it all. In the end it’s just a sad affair because everybody wants the same thing…a community like you provide…one of them even said that in their show.

  5. Blue Moon

    Critical thinking is one virtue of aging- When young and life remains a series of experiments, emotion, even unrecognized as such, can cloud one’s judgement- Ab, you and Simon et al have the temperament for this kind of ongoing critique of society- Impulsiveness doesn’t yield good results in this line of work- Carry on… (And BTW, why would anyone bail just because of that Brit twit? I’m missing something here-)

    1. ab Post author

      We have many like you Blue who can see the big picture without being thrown off with the minutia. I am thankful for such a great gathering of thinkers.

  6. UNreal

    These podchilds are dead, long live the podchilds !

    and more importantly,,, Ab, your work on this website is outstanding, so much work and good material that anybody should be able to enjoy many bits and pieces regardless of their personal griefs with you or your success. maybe you are reluctant to see your achievement right now, but you have already created more than 120 truly innovative shows with thought-provoking interviews and subjects with a style of debate that is intelligent and humane in its presentation and form.

    i feel more fakeologist prefer to see your unique qualities rather than to stir in mud.

    look forward to the next radio show here on Fakeologist .com !

      1. UNreal

        well, i have listened to the DB21 so generously hosted by Delcroix and I must say;
        what a hateful, presumptuous pair of guys.
        by judging the “like” count in this thread, they are also a pair of trolls.
        i am unaware of the moment Dusty and Banazir ever came up with any original content or theory of their own, other than borrowing guests and theories from this very site and podcasts. and yes, i am aware of them going to the richard Gage conference, but it seems to me that they never once mentioned that Gage was denounced on your show, as a matter of fact between us two (i’ll have to take credit here as i called out R.Gage first on air).
        maybe we can call them DustBan’ned from here on ?
        and as Delcroix keeps posting shill shows, i guess these guys are a team made for each other.

  7. columjaddica

    It’s risky to give any opinion when there’s drama going on, you never know whos the shill, one side, both sides, neither side. I’ve been fairly inactive here because of the recent drama and being generally too busy. I really don’t know what to think and I only caught half of the DustBan show yesterday.

    Overall impression was that it seemed like they went through a lot of effort to make the show, over something that isn’t all that important (not banning a user quick enough and not apologizing?)

    The edit of AB that played at the end, after the music, was completely unnecessary and probably not helpful to their earlier arguments. Seemed a pretty malicious thing to do

    I’m lucky in that I have a private place to discuss media fakery that I can retreat to when the public places get nasty. It gets tiring being constantly under scrutiny and having to constantly scrutinize others, never being 100% sure that somebody isn’t a shill.

    In the end I’m probably going to disconnect from public discussion of media fakery and I have to wonder if that’s the intended effect of this kind of drama?

    1. ab Post author

      I hope neither side are shills. Yes Ban worked hard on his clips. Inxs if you ask me. As for a private board, I’ve enjoyed too many smarter people who’ve come by to go private or pay. More good than bad.
