A young woman takes revenge on her ex by reporting his activities on the message board of the football club they both support. Global hilarity ensues.

As per the warning, this may not be the most elegant FPP, but as this seems to be STD day on MeFi...

Bwahaha. Kind of amusing, the idea of getting revenge by telling the truth about someone in an online forum.

Of course, it only works if the truth is unsavory enough...

And the trouble is, how are you going to prove it? On the net, the truth and the lies look an awful lot alike, and not many people are going to go to the trouble that it takes to sort out whether a given accusation is one or the other.

High profile stuff, like the whole Kaycee Nicole thing, is a different matter, though.

I've been following that, a bit, and I will eat my lucky hat if any of it is true. Odd that no-one on that message board had ever heard of Brian before. Bimbo is definitely a bloke.
In my hapless opinion.

Cracking good stuff, true or not! Reminds me how boring we Americans are with our total lack of good slang words.

A few of my favorites from the thread:

minger= A sexually undesirable or smelly person.
scummer = Term of abuse for those from Southhampton

And you can even buy the Tindlegate t-shirt!

What would happen if someone here said they got a sexually-transmitted disease from a fellow metafilterian?

How would you know if they were telling the truth?

If I'm wrong, Ragamuffin, tell me. What does the truth look like on the net, and how does it differ from how the lies look?

junkbox, no one should be deprived of a well stocked lexicon of slang words, a gift for you :-)
