Forget The Dirty; defamation just went post-secondary with the all-Canadian Room 110

by Liam Britten | Culture

By now, everyone’s probably heard of first-rate gossip site The Dirty. It’s basically a place for anonymous Internet users to post Facebook photos of people they have a grudge against, and then post defamatory stories about them — usually in regards to their promiscuity (for women) sexual orientation (for men) and their history of venereal diseases (both genders). Nik Richie, founder of The Dirty, then adds his two cents to every post (which, considering the amount of slanderous material posted on a daily basis, must keep the guy busy).

But now, defamation just went and got itself edumacated, because an all-Canadian answer to The Dirty, Room 110, is on the scene.

Unlike The Dirty, which organizes posts by city, Room 110 does it by post-secondary institution. Now, you can see what kind of benefits your wonderful child is getting when you send them off to school, and your child can have their reputation ruined all in one website! It’s a win-win!

I’m always amazed that such defamatory websites like these don’t get slapped with lawsuits. After all, there’s no way to prove that most of these lurid tales of debauchery are true in any way; I guess that once you get your face on a site like that once, you don’t want to drag your name through the mud in a lawsuit.

Anyways, for more tales of home-grown shenanigans at the post-secondary level, visit Room 110. I, for one, can’t wait till they add my alma mater, Douglas College. I’ve got a few tales to tell that could ruin some reputations, careers, and even once-clean criminal records...
