You’ve probably now heard of Ashley Madison, a dating website set up explicitly for married people looking to have affairs. There’s a lot of speculation about what the actual split between men and women on the site was (although I’ve not seen much on sexuality so am working on the assumption of predominantly heterosexual relationships), much of it relating to fake female accounts possibly created by Ashley Madison or accounts created by sex industry professionals to lure men into paying for services. Much better to get online, where at least when women decide they are not interested, you can send them 1400-word missives at three in the morning about why females never go for nice guys – 19 days after your last message went unanswered.

Users can observe the Installed apps on the app and the data shared by way of them.
For Buell, he is still focused on the people who presently use or may join Ashley Madison. You can have pictures in a ‘private showcase’ so only Ashley Madison members you choose can see them. The site does concede that there are still men and ashley mad women seeking an affair on Ashley Madison, but we don’t let that define us and neither should you”. I wrote about this last month in anticipation of the Ashley Madison data being leaked and I stand firm on that today.
