sex and the city

LONDON, ENGLAND - AUGUST 19:  In this photo illustration, a man visits the Ashley Madison website on August 19, 2015 in London, England. Hackers who stole customer information from the cheating site dumped 9.7 gigabytes of data to the dark web on Tuesday fulfilling a threat to release sensitive information including account details, log-ins and credit card details, if Avid Life Media, the owner of the website didn't take Ashley offline permanently.

Hackers appear to being have a field day with the Ashley Madison website. Until it became news, I had never heard of the Ashley Madison website. I must be naive to think that people only cheated in their local areas at bars, nightclubs, on business trips, and when the opportunity presented itself. I was greatly surprised when “Sex and the City” was a TV show. Just reading the description was enough for me to not watch it. It is apparently still popular and the former stars of the show must be doing quite well with the residuals. When the hackers release the cheaters’ data have they considered what will happen to the families of the cheaters? I disagree with cheating, but often it is the children who are hurt. There is a woman who runs a cooking show that is fed up with nasty comments from men. She is no way like the Ashley Madison website but she is a very attractive woman. I read recently that she intends to contact the wives of the rude men to make them aware of their husbands’ behavior. That is probably a little better than plastering the cheaters’ names over the internet where savvy children can read to see if their parent is listed. I just saw that Impact Team, the hacking company, released the data yesterday. I am not sure where it might be, but I am convinced that numerous people will scour the internet until they find the information. What I do not understand is why the hackers felt that they have the right to steal another company’s data. I can only assume that they are against cheating, but stealing isn’t the answer. The old saying “Two wrongs don’t make a right” is true. The worst part about cheaters is that they seem to justify their actions. Then they give the excuses. “I didn’t mean it, I didn’t know what I was doing, I was drunk, it was a one time thing,” etc. A friend of mine whose husband cheated on her was devastated when she learned the truth. She has left him and is starting her life over. Sadly, he wasted over twenty years of her life. She berates herself because she feels she was dumb, blind and stupid. She is not a young woman any more either so her chances for a companion or dating aren’t what they would have been if he had just left twenty years ago.  Good Luck to all the cheaters once their  wives locate the Ashley Madison data.
