I think part of the problem is that people think of "fog" as that murky
stuff that nobody likes, instead of "FOG" as Friend Of Gump. If it was
clear that it's a "friendship index", I don't think there would be a need
to invert the sense, because a higher friendship index sounds better than
a low one. ;-)
