Gordon Gekko would be proud. On April 24, the 1,000th member joined “Greedy Associates,” an Internet chat club founded last fall as a “place for the overprivileged to complain.” More precisely, GA is a Web site where young lawyers swap pay rumors (or create sex rumors) under silly pseudonyms.

Some 20 copycat groups sprang up over the winter–from Greedy DC to LA Greedy–and on April 13, Yahoo! recognized “greedy associates” as a distinct club category.
