anonymous confessions

I feel like the "anonymous confessions" phenomenon is closer to a real meme than the "what kind of [x] am I?" quiz (how did those end up getting called memes, anyway?). The idea is simple: someone turns off IP logging, and writes something like, "Please tell me a secret, anonymously."

I've seen it all over LJ, but apparently in the ucberkeley community this is a tradition. The spring confessions thread is nearing 3000 comments, some of which name names.

(See also: http://grouphug.us/, of course.)
