Today, it is apparent that the eponymously mentioned twitter accounts (@PsychoNorma/@JasonVorheesMe) have been permanently banned from twitter.
I made a report to twitter about @psychoNorma a matter of days ago…I have had no confirmation mail from twitter support as yet; by my experience that means that for some reason twitter-support has kept elements of their investigation open. With both of these accounts now closed, I can only conjecture why; not wanting to give the remaining trolls any further information, I’ll keep most of my thought-processes to myself until all of my issues with specific abusive accounts are resolved with twitter. With all that said, this blog post is an effort by me to show you how I feel qualified to know a troll when I see one, and how I arrive at that conclusion. I followed the logical path I’ve previously developed and laid down in another part of my blog – https://adeybob.wordpress.com/2013/12/11/your-trolls-and-you-identify-and-neuter-them/
Until I do get a response from twitter-support either way, I can either assume that someone or some other persons also made a report and my complaint coincided with it/them, or I can assume that my single report hit the nail on the head…keeping in mind that, like I said, twitter-support are very likely still investigating elements of this whole issue, as well.
Background: both these accounts were ‘born’ around the same time only a few months ago. Most of that time, the @jasonvorheesme account has been locked, and it’s tweets were only visible to it’s only follower (until the last few days, when it was followed by several other accounts in quick succession) – @PsychoNorma.
When these accounts first appeared, I and other concerned twitter-users were at a critical juncture in the operation to expose, and to have permanently banned from twitter, the troll-team known as #TeamOutlaw. Most of the troll team were indeed permanently banned on the basis that they were operated by the same twitter account-user, but minor accounts that hadn’t yet interacted were spared. Instead of using the remaining accounts to apologise or somehow explain the abuse they’d constantly given out for a year, these remaining elements of #teamOutlaw decided instead to carry-on the abuse, the intimidation, the harassment…even trotting out the exact same evil sleights that #teamOutlaw did.
@psychonorma only really communicated regularly with one other account – @JasonVorheesMe. I inferred from @psychonorma comments to @jasonvorheesme that the @jason account was proliferating the same defamations.
1) Tweet from @psychonorma to add to and amplify an on-going attack on myself, @denverelle and ‘co’:
…this tweet is designed to proliferate the foundless accusation that certain accounts mentioned in the tweet had deliberately wound-up the recipient of the tweet by stating that they were out to ‘get her’.
Note: The accusation mentioned was initially created by the recipient of the tweet, tweaked to include me when amplified by @psychonorma – and has been thoroughly discounted and dismissed on the basis that the only person who had ever stated it as fact was the recipient – the only ‘evidence’ being an endlessly tweeted screenshot of a Direct Message; taken out of context to make it improperly appear as if @denverelle had made a statement. This will be the subject of an upcoming portion of my blog; ‘How Trolls Interact To Create and Amplify Bollocks’.
Note: I have removed one name to preserve the integrity of an on-going investigation.
2) Tweet from @Psychonorma to amplify an ongoing attack against Jan:
…This targeted tweet is made only to attack Jan. Jan has got a well-documented long-term illness which only recently required an invasive operation to address a life-threatening condition. Her best doggie-friend – her loving companion and most faithful friend of the last 13 years has also recently died…both of the accounts shown in the screenshot think it’s ok to try and further attack a person that has already had over a year of constant abuse from the parent of these accounts – #teamOutlaw. I can only guess why these seemingly-unrelated accounts saw fit to spontaneously talk about issues found only humourous by themselves and the other vestigial elements of #TeamOutlaw…but I leave you to draw you own conclusions.
3) My report to twitter regarding @psychonorma and the interactions/relationships it had to other accounts – this is in the same format as received, with one account name redacted to preserve the integrity of an ongoing investigation:
What username is causing the issue?: @psychonorma

Blocked user(s): Yes
How many times has this happened?: after looking at the account, I can see that almost every tweet is designed to abuse someone.
Further description of problem: This account is permanently making abusive and harassing statements about other accounts. I believe it is an account controlled by the same account-holder that controls @XXXXXXXXX. I also believe that it is the same account holder that has controlled the now-banned @MFOKate/@MFOGlasgow/@fairybulldog accounts [ https://kevingreen1950.wordpress.com/mfokate-katemfo-mfoglasgow-aka-fairybulldog-aka-un_requitedluv/ ].
This account (@psychoNorma) is perpetuating a vendetta against myself and others…a vendetta that over a period of around a year, a few others and myself complained to twitter support about; reports about a group of accounts controlled by a now-permanently banned account called @theoutlawjimmy…an account that was reported exhaustively to twitter…we TOLD you that it was using multiple, overlapping accounts to abuse people on twitter, we TOLD you that it was part of group of twitter accounts that were perpetuating a vendetta against users on twitter that were high-lighting very sensitive issues. But you didn’t actually permanently ban @theOutlawJimmy until the police were involved. And now the owner of that account has been charged by the police with malicious use of communications; due to appear in court later this month.
Now, after a year of serious abuse from @theoutlawjimmy and his many other accounts and supporters, I am trying to rebuild the reputation that was all-but destroyed over that time. I won’t let it all happen again. The tweets emanating from the @psychoNorma account are designed to create and proliferate harmful accusations against me and others…just like the @theoutlawjimmy account was allowed to for a year.
Please investigate, and pool information with @walterhcampbell, who is the investigator that sent @theoutlawjimmy the email outlining why the account had been permanently banned from twitter.
Twitter username: @monadtime
As I said, draw your own conclusions as to why the accounts of @Psychonorma and @Jasonvorheesme were banned, and whether or not my report to twitter was a contributory factor.
I will update this page with any relevant material, and will explore the issue of how to knock out trolls further in my blog.
I welcome comment, suggestions on other lines of enquiry, and any other proof of trolling – screenshots of tweets or posts, etc.
