The IM Police is a self-appointed task force of suck-ups, out to rid the world of working-from-home slackers. They constantly refresh IM contact lists, looking for idle timers that exceed three seconds.
Unfortunately, their sleuth skills are very limited and usually lead to debacular accusations. They make Barney Fife look like a supercop in comparison.
Sgt Peterson, IM Police: Uh, can you explain why you went idle for 12 seconds just now? If you are working from home, you need to be working.
Abe: I'm on vacation, you pwned nitwit.
Sgt Peterson, IM Police: Oh... uh... see any good movies lately?
