The new Web 2.0 way to humiliate your ex and get revenge
Now on Breakkup.com, you can expose that jerk (or jerkette) for the world to see, and the community will evicerate him/her on line -- sort of a modern version of the public gallows.
I found this today on Thrillist.com:
"When suffering through the throes of relationship trouble...get intimate advice from people you don't even know, with Breakkup.
A Digg-styled community dedicated to exploring relationship issues, BKU lets users post predicaments to a "Latest Drama" page, where community members vote on whether to Break Up or Chill Out, as well as leave specific comments, with the most pathetic active posts being slapped up on the homepage.
In the event you have no stones, the site's augmented by a Breakup Assistant. Submit a name, address, and grievances, and personal assistants will send your formerly-loved one a letter ranging in tone from You Really Hurt My Feelings to Don't Ever Talk To Me Again."
There are communities for online dating. So it only makes sense that there would be communities for breaking up. Could divorce networks be next?
