I think it's time to give up on Fleaflicker as a gaming platform, unless it is a private league and you know everyone in the league. There are so many leagues where immature commissioners and other players are changing the rules, changing settings, deleting teams, switching to no waviers, and then picking up players. Or, the one guy has multiple IDs and multiple teams and makes obviously one-sided trades.

Fleaflicker has some real problems as a legitimate gaming system:

1. If you report cheating - you earn bad karma.

2. People can drop teams in mid-season - Not like that on ESPN, Yahoo, CBS Sports, Fox Sports, or NFL.com

3. Flea is VERY SLOW to respond - the usual response is we don't get involved.

4. The interface is primitive comparied to fantasy sports on the other systems listed in item 2 above.

If you drop teams, you get a red flag. If you report cheating you get a red flag. And Flea is slow to respond.

I was in a league where the commissioner changed the settings in mid season, dropped a team, and then picked up the players from the dropped team. I complained to Flea, and they did nothing. I complained on the league message board, and suddenly four players on the league started a vote to vote me out. I now know that the commissioner HAD FOUR TEAMS in the league. I got four "You're Cheating" votes, and now I have a red flag. I thought this was crazy. I wrote Flea, and two weeks later they said it would go away after two weeks. It has now been six weeks. I've written again, and no response.
