So Ashley Madison is now a well-known adulterous website, particularly after hackers stole 37 million records on the site participants, and have released that information to the public.
These tens of millions of users seek companionship for loveless or sexless marriages or perhaps are just plain liars and cheaters–who knows?
But yikes, now everyone knows!
Huffington reports that divorce lawyers are anticipating a deluge of new clients seeking divorces.
And BBC reports that two people have already taken their lives in Canada as a result of the release.
What is incredible as well are the 15,000 people who used their .gov or .mil accounts presumably to hide their infidelity from their spouses, but now are in potentially huge trouble with their government agencies.
I assume that Ashley Madison prided themselves on their discretion in handling their clients accounts, but lo’ and behold the discretion is for naught compliments of some very naughty hackers.
Privacy is becoming a very lonely and meaningless word whether you are faithful or a cheater–it’s all open fodder on the net. 😉
