|About:||As Insanejournal gets bigger, I predict that more than a few fakers may begin to crop up. Please post any suspicions that someone is faking a death (whether theirs or someone else's) in this community, and help others who post to do a bit of amateur investigation. However, anything not realted to fake deaths should be directed to fake_users. |
Why Does This Community Exist?
As the internet becomes more and more of a primary source of communication, relationships are readily being built through it. Social networking sites are becoming increasingly popular for meeting new friends with, as has been proven many times before. The simple fact is that these "online" friends are often people we care about deeply in real life. To learn that someone has died hurts greatly -- but if they were lying to you about something so hurtful is a great breach of trust, and the truth should be dug out so that no one is hurting in vain.
