Infidelity in the news:
Did you hear about that website Ashley Madison?
It’s already so last week in the news – but what went down was a topic that is as old as Adam and Eve and one we seem to never tire of.
Think…Eliot Spitzer, Newt Gingrich, John Edwards, Bill Clinton, David Patraeus, Anthony Weiner… http://www.rantpolitical.com/2014/10/30/politicians-who-have-had-affairs-go-public/
Ashley Madison is a site where: married people go to find a partner to “cheat” with. Their tag line is: “Life is short, have an affair.”
And now – once again our wandering boys are being brought down because their biological impulses are just too powerful to be slayed by family values, a preferable home life and even a strong religious upbringing.
On an impulse, lives built over years are leveled because of men’s inability to not stray.
And, you don’t have to be a dummy to think you can get away with cheating on your spouse –even smart guys can be idiots when it comes to cheating.
The CEO of Ashley Madison was profiting off men’s weaknesses and he was the big boy who got blown.
Caught in the act of pipelining women to nudgey men, his lovers’ webnest has become the scorned lover of millions of men and some women whose identities have been exposed.
Should we be worried even if we aren’t cheating?
Hiding behind a computer screen just isn’t safe enough for anyone.
And honestly, how could anyone in today’s day and age think that they’re “invisible” if social media and the internet are their “confidential” tool?
Ah come-on guys!
But in fairness, we’re all only human. We are all guilty of denial especially when it comes to our security on the Internet.
The reality is – most of us live our lives thinking we are not going to be compromised on the Internet.
But, even the defense department isn’t safe from hackers.
What have you done lately to password protect your life? And, does it even matter?
What if no matter how many times you change your password – it wouldn’t make a difference because the hackers can figure it out anyway?
That’s what the Ashley Madison hackers were able to do. They created an algorithm to break through passwords no matter how many times the users changed them.
What kind of dolt would sign up to cheat on their spouse on a website?
Since we have all been forewarned about being “hacked,” what would motivate someone to sign up on a web site to cheat on their spouse and think they wouldn’t be discovered?
Ashleymadison.com is a site where married people shop, not for fancy new threads, but for partners to cheat with. Their slogan is “Life is short, have an affair.”
“Ashley Madison is the most famous name in infidelity and married dating,” the site asserts on its homepage. “Have an Affair today on Ashley Madison. Thousands of cheating wives and cheating husbands sign up everyday looking for an affair…. With Our affair guarantee package we guarantee you will find the perfect affair partner.”
For $49 you can register and find someone to “cheat” on your spouse with.
With over 124 million monthly users, the site is a gold mine and was hacked intentionally last week by a group that was intent on exposing all of it’s users if the site didn’t shut down.
Well, it doesn’t look like the site is shut down, but there’s a lot of marriages that may be.
But that’s only if spouses actually want to check and find out if their partner is on it.
As of last week you can see if your spouse’s name is on this list. (The site has been operating since 2001).
My guess is if you kinda suspect your spouse is cheating but don’t want to deal — maybe and you want to keep your marriage together as imperfect as it is– you probably won’t go to check to see if your partner’s name is on the list.
And if you’re a BA50 and you are happy enough in your marriage – why bother?
Apparently the average age of male cheaters on the site was 41 and women 34 so maybe it’s not relevant for we empty nesters. The CEO says women cheat because they want to be the “object of desire.” They aren’t feeling it at home so they go elsewhere.
Men cheat because there is a sexual void and sex has become “vanilla” at home according to Ashley Madison’s CEO Noel Biderman. http://www.cnbc.com/2015/05/28/why-do-women-cheat-ashley-madison-ceo-tells-all-commentary.html
More phony baloney:
Noel Biderman said when he launched this business he was marketing to women but psychographics tell all – the cheaters are dominated by men. He said that the site was half women and half men – apparently not!
It turns out 14% of the Ashley Madison users are women — 28 million men and 5 million women. http://www.wired.com/2015/08/ashley-madison-hack-exposes-wait-lousy-business/
By the way the CEO Noel Biderman is married and says he does not cheat. Whatever!
What BA50’s know about cheating:
This site is exposing what most of us who have reached the age of 50 already know.
When men think with their “D++ks” they are not thinking about much more than the touchdown. The thrill of a clandestine meeting is worth the risk to them.
What do you think about this?
