The recent hack and release of Ashley Madison users’ information is absolutely despicable. Though I certainly don’t condone cheating, it’s none of our business what consenting adults do in their free time. I can’t believe the nerve of these hackers, distributing people’s personal information with no regard for their privacy. How dare they?
Also you don’t happen to know if David’s name was on the list, do you? Just wanna make sure.
Nobody has the right to know someone else’s personal business, as contemptible as that business may be. Infidelity is hurtful and unhealthy for everyone involved, but that doesn’t mean that anyone is entitled to blab about other people’s unfaithfulness without permission. Secrets are secret for a reason, people! I know my husband would never be unfaithful to me, and even if he was, I wouldn’t want to know. If anyone came across David’s name on the list, I would want them to keep it confidential. You haven’t, right?
This kind of leak represents the callous disregard for people’s personal lives that pervades this information age. We no longer have the right to privacy, even on supposedly private forums like Ashley Madison. There are no safe spaces on the internet! Not that I support infidelity, but I just don’t think it’s any of our business who is doing what (or whom) on the web. I would never want my husband’s privacy to be invaded like that, even if he did commit adultery. Of course, I have no reason to suspect that he has. Do you? Please be honest.
The hack isn’t just about punishing cheaters; Thousands of families could be destroyed with the release of this information. Everyone has moments of weakness and vice, but those moments shouldn’t be broadcast for all the world to see. These men could lose their jobs, their homes, and everyone they care about. And David could lose me. God, that would be sad. But you didn’t see his name anywhere, did you? He sometimes goes by “Dave” or “Sandy’s Husband”.
One little mistake isn’t worth ruining an entire family’s future. Think of the children! Although David and I don’t have any children so we wouldn’t have to worry about that if he happened to be on the list, just FYI, if you know something.
The worst part is that information released on the internet is permanently available. Once it’s out there, it’s out there for good. And the more it gets distributed, the easier it is for anyone to track it down. There are even websites being posted now where you can search the list of released users’ info to see if your spouse is on there! By the way, do you know how exactly to access them? No reason. Just wondering.
I hope that this information is destroyed quickly, although I fear it won’t be. These men are jerks for being unfaithful, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have a right to keep their personal business under wraps. Releasing this information could jeopardize their entire future. Thank god my husband and I don’t have to worry about that.
Could you just double-check though?
