"social networking service Formspring"

Never heard of it. So I go looking.

It says here that "Formspring was an anonymous Q&A forum. [..] It allowed people to anonymously ask questions and send messages to other users without having to sign up."

The article states Kislitsin is accused of : "stealing usernames, email addresses, and passwords". How is that possible if users didn't need to sign up ?

Or is it that users had to give a username and email when they posted, being able to change anytime they wanted ? That's just like signing up, then.

I don't get it.
