Fandom_Scruples was a pseudonymous LiveJournal troll that caused a disturbance in the Harry Potter fandom for a while in 2004. In 2006, it was revealed that Fandom_Scruples was a sockpuppet of HP fan Msscribe.

Fandom_Scruples was ostensibly created to pass judgment on HP fanwriters who "post incest, rape, beastialiy, or NC17 fics where young children can access them."[1] A "gold list" and "blacklist" were created. The blacklist originally included a number of BNFs ... and MsScribe.[2][3] See Fandom Scruples' Black List. [4]

It is now generally believed that Fandom_Scruples was deliberately designed to be wanky. It was covered on Fandom Wank several times between January 2004 and January 2005.[3] The first F_W report was actually posted by Sporkify, another sockpuppet of Msscribe.[5]
