An attempt to vandalize GS user IMDb page with a title addition

Fellow GS user Ed Jones just got his name added to a title on IMDb which should be either or deleted altogether. I guess it more or less fits minimal critera for addition, however how credits were added is a vandal edit at it's finest. As you can see on the YouTube screener of the title in question, there are credits absolutely none of which actually includes name "Ed Jones". 

Oh, and to Ed himself, for future reference: please do not try to correct plot summaries of such titles, as it further makes reverting the edits difficult. The worst part of this vandal edit is that it was based on a real, possibly eligible title, not a fake one.

Hey Ed, please pardon my language, but what the hell is going on? Someone sure has a big bug up their ass about you. How many times have the (for the lack of a better term) troll has tried to have you kicked off the IMDb and then they create copycat accounts and now this?!?!???!!! I agree that this is getting ridiculous, stupid, and childish. Are you sure this guy is an adult? Because these actions don’t look very mature to me.

Unfortunately it looks like further attempts.
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5575380/?ref_=nm_flmg_tk_1
And it's credits include a character named "unnecessary addition".
Ed, did you find someone's wheaties?
Reading above, I wonder if someone whose credits you've tried to get removed might be more likely a culprit. There are two names that come to mind. Regardless, I hope imdb can shut them down and I've never much complained about how long it takes things to be approved, but I'd gladly accept a longer delay if it stopped clowns like this.

Thanks for raising this. I think that these credits are legitimate (for another Ed Jones), but have just been added to the wrong name page. I've moved them to the correct page now and marked those roles as uncredited on the title.

Thanks,
Will

Hi Bobby -

Thanks for your observations, I have now moved the credits for "Cosby Speaks by Cliff E" to a new "Ed Jones", as this appears to be different individual.  The changes should be live on the site shortly.  Cheers!
