The fact that Oblomov was not EC makes a slight argument that Will Durant is not EC.
I also think Gandalf's argument for Will Durant's innocence is pretty good -- the fact that Will sent Gandalf a PM asking why everyone followed along with the slayer's suggestion. I would expect EC to fully understand this already. If they were going to feign innocence, I can see them making a public posting, but I doubt they would further send a PM to Gandalf.
I disagree. It is some people's nature to be defensive when accused, regardless of how innocuous the accusation. Yoda's constant bickering with 2Pac is consistent with this. So is my own and I was somewhat defensive.
