real human contact would bring back the cold sneering!

In the real world, anyone that calls the cops and informs on people
would be ostracized from the community and shunned, and/or the rat would
be forced to move out out of the neighborhood.
In the virtual world you might get away with finking on your friends,
because you're dealing with fictional people posting under an alias.
But, the same rules apply - unless the forum is populated with other

Nobody seems to want to talk about Barry calling in the International
Police on the forum. I thought at least one person would acknowledge
this fact and want to discuss it. It looks like I was mistaken.
There's not going to be any "sweetnes and light" on this forum, as far
as I'm concerned, until Barry calls off the cops. YMMV./
Maybe FFL should have regular Skype-type conference calls to
re-calibrate FFL members back to "fully functioning human" level . . .

the entire group and leave the group and never to return. His name is
FINK all over the internet. Do you really want to be his enabler,
