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.
C: I call bullshit Richard. You are not a Crip. If someone commits a crime against you your cell phone will be dialing 911 before they leave your property. And your neighbors would thank you for it. R: 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 informants who lack any kind of integrity or balls. C: Standing up for yourself against cyber bullies using damaging lies to hurt your real life IS integrity. It helps make this a safe place for all of us to post and I thank Barry for helping keep this site safe for me to post on. Those two were starting down that same road with me. Calling Jim Barry's friend is ridiculous. He was not just an opponent in discussions, he was an actual enemy who tried to perpetrate actual harm. He was stopped. You need to get your head right about this issue. R: 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. C: First he didn't call them on the forum, he called it (if he did, I have no way of knowing what really happened. It could have been mindfuck jiu jitsu that worked.) on individuals who were trying to harm him unfairly and unethically. R: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. C: Come on Richard. Put your prodigious mind to something useful. This is contrived bullshit and you know it. You are acting as if you have a part in a gangster prison movie. "Barry is a dirty rat see, and we need to enforce the code we live by. Otherwise the screws will get the jump on our cigarette smuggling. Lou, go upstairs and toss the leader of the Mexican's salad during breaktime in return for his group guarding the door to the laundry room when we make our move. Lefty, you go up to the guard station at exactly 12:05 and pick a fight with a guard. While they are distracted Buzz Saw and Little Nads will come with me to the laundry where our rat has his work detail. I need Buzz Saw to keister a shive up his ass till we get into the room. Remove the shive and for F sake please wipe it off better this time before you hand it to me Buzz Saw. Little Nads will restrain the rat by his namesake and hold him for me to do my work on him. When we are done with him, he will never cross the amerta code again see. That dirty rat." Is that who you see yourself as Richard? > Maybe FFL should have regular Skype-type conference calls to re-calibrate FFL members back to "fully functioning human" level . . . > There's only one solution to this situation: Barry must apologize to 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, Seraphita?
