Can we just stop for a second and appreciate that in group situations people want to be good, and moral and right? For a shining, solitary moment, the internet was at its moral best.
What the hell am I talking about, you ask? Only about how Neil Gaiman - and the internet - were saved from a potential leak of his latest Doctor Who script which was accidentally left in the back of a taxi.

The script was found by a non-Whovian (non Doctor Who fan - to those not in the know) who posted a photo of it on her Facebook page. Her friend, a Whovian and Redditor (editor on social news website, Reddit), known as “Shrimpdude” posted the image on Reddit and pondered over what to do.
