Web sites let you tattle on bad drivers, neighbors, mean teachers

SPOKANE, Wash. - 'Revenge sites' are a new and controversial class of web sites where you can complain about the way you were treated or the behavior of others.

Zapatag.com is another outlet for road rage.

It's a place to publicly shame rude, aggressive and unsafe drivers.

License plate numbers are cataloged by state, pinned to Google Maps and posted online as a virtual hall of shame.

The postings won't result in a traffic citation, but they are stored on the site's database where previous incidents can be tracked down and presumably, create a pattern that could be of interest to authorities.

Rottenneighbor.com is a variation of that, a tell-all website that boasts being the first real estate search engine of its kind, helping you find troublesome neighbors before you sign the paperwork on your new house, condo or apartment.

You can search by address, post a report or check out a street.

There's even video, rotten media, documenting the complaints.

Finally, Teachercomplaints.com is geared toward parents and students to compare and complain about teachers, homework, discipline and classroom behavior.

You can search by school, teacher name and state.

Critics of these sites say they can be used to easily and unfairly to target innocent people.

Site backers say those singled out can post their rebuttals.

Either way they seem to be here to stay.
