Ex-lovers seek revenge online

Heather L. Nicholson
Daily Cougar Staff

Revenge to inflict punishment in return for (injury or insult); to seek or take vengeance for (oneself or another person); avenge; the act
of taking vengeance for injuries or wrongs; retaliation.

Many scorned lovers, disgruntled neighbors and backstabbing co-workers have employed the ancient art of revenge.

Now, there's no need to slash your ex's tires or salt the earth of your neighbor's garden. There is a Web site where the truth will prevail,
others are forever warned and revenge is satisfied. is a place where all the lying, cheating and
backstabbing can be made public.

The Web site is for adults only, since most complaints contain much derogatory name-calling and angry curse words, but they sure are
fun to read.

To post your own whine, simply log on to the Web site and choose your reason for revenge: ex-boyfriend/ex-girlfriend, neighbor, in-laws
or co-workers.

After your selection has been made, there is an option to choose the region in which you're warning. Complaints stem from every coast of
the United States to Mexico, New Zealand and Japan.

Then fill out a vague profile on the one you hate, including name (no last names), gender, location and birth date. There is also a place
for your own information so others may sympathize by e-mail.

Rant and rave to your heart's content because there is no limitation on space or censorship of content. After you feel better about getting
the word out, read other people's dilemmas, because there are always a few worse than yours.

The United States has by far the most grumbles, with California ranking in as No. 1 with 164 broken hearts. Texas, however, only claims
29, but maybe that's because of our southern hospitality ... yeah, right.

There are plenty of sob stories going around campus, and with everyone's input, we too can be the highest-ranked pathetic state in the
nation. Get mad, get on and get even.
