This idea would be for a site where employees and anyone who has evidence on corporate wrongdoing, financial scandals, false advertising, etc, can act ethically and upload this evidence anonymously for everyone (including reporters!) to see.
If you work for a corporation and know that something is going
wrong but you can´t tell anyone then you just go to the site and upload the attachments and documents you have seen.
Many Enron-like cases could be avoided if employees and other people who have access to confidential information but don´t/can´t risk loosing their jobs.
This could also be expanded to politics!

I believe that this implements most of this idea. [Aristotle, Oct 04 2004]
||What is to prevent someone from releasing sensitive company information because they are ticked off at the boss? This information would be available to competitors then?
||I guess there´s always the risk, it would depend on the person´s judgement, but with or without this site someone who wants to share confidential information, not specifically related to corporate wrongdoing, can do so by other means. However this site would just be focused on wrong ethical behavior.
||Many sites sites like this already exist [see link].
