As the title says people post their secrets on the site. Some say thats its sometimes NSFW.
www.Postsecret.com (http://www.postsecret.com/)

PostSecret has opened up a new world for Warren. The project started with 3,000 self-addressed postcards Warren handed out to strangers, asking them to mail back a secret, anonymously. He received about 100 and thought he was done. But "the idea spread in a viral way," he says, and with postcards continuing to trickle in, he started posting several every Sunday on the Web site.
PostSecret has now received more than 100,000 cards, up to 200 a day, which have toured the country in exhibitions and appeared in two other books: "PostSecret" and "My Secret." It's enough of a job that Warren now leaves others to run his document delivery firm and spends several hours a day on PostSecret-related business. (He checks his mailbox two or three times a day and adds he has a "great relationship" with his mail carrier -- "but some at the post office probably do hate me.")
His family has been extremely supportive. Warren impishly notes that his wife has tried to sneak in some of her secrets, but he's always recognized them. As for his daughter, "This is all very normal to her."
He's seldom fazed by people's anonymous revelations anymore, though he has run e-mail messages urging people to seek help. (The Web site includes a link to hopeline.com, a suicide-prevention hotline.)

The one that hooked me on this site though..... was a postcard of the smoking twin towers with a note that said something to the effect of "Everyone in my family thinks I died on 9/11"

Wow, that IS an interesting site. It kind of reminds me of a recent music video that has a bunch of people holding up pieces of paper covering their face with thier secret. Anybody know the video?

For some of us, that is a reality.
