I want to be very clear about something before I begin: I am NOT implying that Shaun, or any other G&G member, would do any of these things. I can see how someone may be enthusiastic about this site because they assume that everyone is as fair and just as they are. I, on the other hand, believe that such a site is an invitation for abuse.
This is a horrible idea.
Why not just report your suspicions to the authorities directly? Unless your accusations are malicious or frivolous, what do you have to fear?
Why do you have to rat someone out anonymously?
1. So you can harass a person whose skin color/nation of origin/religion is different from yours? Admit it or not, this will be the primary basis for virtually all of the accusations.
2. So you can divert the time and resources of the authorities from legitimate threats? This would be a way for terrorists to throw red herrings into LEO’s path.
3. So you can get back that waiter at the Mexican restaurant who took too long to bring you your lunch today?
4. Because you don't have the time to round up an actual lynch mob? Vigilante justice is now e-vigilante.com.
This assumes, of course, that the website will actually do something with your information, and that the authorities will listen to them. Maybe they will just keep your $10.
If your "suspicions" are so vague and lacking in evidence, just because they are put into an anonymous email doesn’t turn them into gold.
Really, what is to stop me from ratting out my boss? Or my ex-girlfriend from ratting on me because I own "scary guns"?
