CampusGossip.Com Making News

A new campus website, CampusGossip.Com, is making big news. Of course after hearing about it, I immediately had to visit it. You do not have to set up an account to post and you can remain anonymous. It is a place where you can post your best gossip. It it getting some press because some of the posts are quite direct, mentions individuals by name, and requires no accountability from the one who makes the post.

In looking back at the archives of S&P I remember some posts some individuals made on their FaceBook and MySpace pages that created considerable controversey. These same issues are surfacing over the posts on CampusGossip.

We have become such a Schadenfreude Society and this website certainly exemplifies that.
