Online Tools For the Criminally Minded

Who's A Rat is an online database of known informants and agents of the law. This will undoubtedly become an integral part of a background check when, say, applying for a position in the underworld. Users pay a small fee to join the site, after which they can search and upload profiles for informants and agents and interact with other users in the forums to share stories about their legal activities.

Like many services with dubious purposes, Who's A Rat tries to maintain plausible deniability -- "THIS WEBSITE DOES NOT PROMOTE OR CONDONE VIOLENCE OR ILLEGAL ACTIVITY"

Of course not... It's just part of a campaign to 'Stop Snitching' (which has its roots in the drug trade).
