Raise your hand if you are surprised that Josh Duggar had an account.

Didn't think so.

Remember when Peanuts TV specials were sponsored by Ashley Madison?

I'm quite uncomfortable with all these details being released. Moral crusaders really getting on their high horse. You don't know what's going on in people's lives. A couple of radio hosts here this morning told a woman live on air her husband was on the site. Despicable.

Also, can you really get shitty at the founders of the site when they're just creating something that there's obviously a massive market for?

Is it any different than other hackers who release information?

Guys, I seriously can't handle this thread title .


But seriously, in general, these types of hackers do sicken me. Almost as much as this Ashley Madison site kinda sickens me.

Didn't that lady call up specifically asking the DJs to check if her husband was registered? If you don't want to find out that way, don't ask to find out that way.

Cheaters don't have a right to conduct their affairs privately, this is just a resource for anyone to check if their specific spouse is a dirtbag. The method used is certainly morally dubious but I'd say it's on par with stealing from thieves.

I do hope that the credit card information leaked doesn't enable fraud however. That would be unjustifiable.

Of course it will enable fraud. If it's leaked, that's that.

I'm a n00b on credit card fraud. Do you need the type of card, CVC, expiration date as well as the front number and name for fraud? No idea if all that is in this zip file. It hasn't been mentioned in any of the articles is read so wasn't sure if it was a further issue to this situation.

Yeah I think I concur with this. As much as there are ethical problems with dumping hacked data - especially if, for some reason, people who legitimately never used the site become implicated* - I cannot bring myself to have sympathy for cheaters. That's the sort of behaviour that does deserve to be exposed and called out. I don't care what's "going on in their lives" or whatever; cheating is not acceptable, full stop. The other thing this proves is the adage that if you don't want people to know something, don't post it on the Internet (no matter how private the website may claim to be). I am amused that evidently their paid total-delete feature did not in fact totally delete everything.

*I don't know how that would actually happen, but you know that within millions of names there are probably going to be a few incorrectly implicated for one weird reason or another. Maybe through stolen card info being used, impersonation, or whatever.

I'm not sure, maybe that was the case. I didn't hear it. Fitzy & Wippa?

I think it's all quite troublesome. Cheating is bad, sure. But I don't think it's as black-and-white as "not acceptable, full stop". What if a woman is seeking refuge from an abusive relationship? What about this?



Also, I don't like the "don't want it out there, don't post it" argument either. A cop-out. Reminds me of the icloud leak. Thousands of women all of a sudden had private naked pics they'd sent to lovers or whatever out there for everyone to see. To simply say "don't post it" is akin to victim-blaming imo.

In a sense, I agree, but really, I think the "Don't Post It" adage is pretty sage advice, in general. Should I not have to worry about other people being stupid? Absolutely, BUT, the fact is, these leaks keep happening, so...nope not taking any >_> pictures with my cell phone.

Oh yeah it is good advice. Being mindful of that stuff is a very, very good idea. Just saying that it's kind of a shit thing to say "well if you didn't want to be humiliated around the entire world you should have thrown your smart phone in the ocean and got a brick".

Yeah, I understand what you mean, and I totally agree, from the blame side of it.

My problem with anyone cheering on these hackers because they don't like Ashley Madison is that you're basically saying to the hackers, "As long as you pick the right targets, we're cool with it." And white boys who are good at the Internet is about the worst demographic as far as judgment on social justice issues is concerned.

Agreed. There's a difference between hacking for ethical reasons and hacking to destroy stuff or steal people's identities and such. Cheating isn't acceptable. Sure people should mind their own business, and it's none of my business if people I don't know cheat... but it is their spouse's business, and her not knowing about it is rather nasty.

Why is it so bad that the woman who called the radio station found out this way? Isn't it better to find out, albeit in a shitty way, than to never know you're being cheated upon? I'm sorry, but if my partner cheated on me, I'd want to know. Because for one partner to cheat on the other, something is obviously wrong in the relationship.. Cheating is the lowest escape, talk to your partner for feck's sake if something isn't right. I know, easy talking, but that's as simple as I can make it. Nothing justifies cheating, and if a bunch of white kids want to expose this, that's fine by me.. releasing credit card information? Not so fine.
