Today I received the first 'poison pen' letter I've ever seen.

It was anonymous, of course. It wasn't targeted at me, it was addressed to my P.O. box, so everyone with a box likely got one.

The target of the letter was someone I don't know personally. (Small town, so I probably met her at some point.) The letter was an angry rant against this person, urging recipients to contact Child Protective Services on her.

I'm left feeling rather unsettled–I don't like this shit.

Rusted Neuron – an Intentional Community

Rusted Neuron is an invitation-only 'Intentional Community'. It is not intended to represent a specific focus, although the people you find here are generally intelligent, creative, and witty. Content and conduct rules are set by the community, not by fiat. The one thing we will not tolerate here is intolerance; you can agree to disagree, but you must treat others with respect.

Currently the membership limit is 100 people and there are plenty of slots available. The goal is to try to replicate real-world community interaction and norms enforcement online. Keeping it small is intended to create a village atmosphere by staying well under Dunbar's Number.
