Can't Stand Your Coworker? Now You Can Tell Him Anonymously

A new email service will either make things better or WAY worse.

"You need to bathe." "Turn down your ridiculously loud music." "Don't talk to me about your rash. TMI!" If office workers were honest with one another, things would run a lot more smoothly.

But since people tend to be too timid to ever say anything like that, these problems continue. Luckily there's now a site called Leak that could put those annoying cubemates in their place. (Or create a whole new office conflict. The choice is yours.)

Leak lets you anonymously send an email as a coworker, a friend, a family member, or a friend of a friend. You can write any message you want (within the site's conduct guidelines) and the recipient will have no idea who it came from. Here's what a sent email looks like.

 

 

If you sign up, Leak will also send you weekly roundups of the juiciest leaks sent. It's like a passive-aggressive PostSecret.

One more thing to note: Leak is not 100 percent anonymous. It keeps links between the emails you send and information like your IP address, in case shady people start using the site for illegal activity. As the site instructs: "So be good, and use it for mischief, not malice."
