This question has been discussed a lot this week and the now the ramifications/consequences as a result of the hacking is starting to emerge. There is now a website link which loved ones/spouses/anyone can put their email address in to see if their details have been released, so consequently anyone who wishes to check if they have been cheated on or not.
So, where do you stand? What are your thoughts?
Do you take the moral high ground and think the Ashley Madison clients be outed and exposed for the cheaters they apparently are?
Or perhaps two wrongs don't make a right and that hacking is another form of control and manipulation and in this case blackmail of very sensitive information that was not the hackers to take in the first place and hence details should not be exposed? The ultimate blackmail?
Here's a link to the hacking scandal.
For the non-clickers:
Intimate details of sexual fantasies and personal information of Australian members of a cheating website have been released online.
A copy of the leaked files contains email addresses and personal messages which appear to be from members of the cheating website Ashley Madison, the news agency service Australian Associated Press reported.
The file contains detailed personal information from Australian users, with one message reading: "I'm open-minded and adventurous (both in and out of the bedroom), and love passionate sex - giving as much as receiving."
There are over 30 million Ashley Madison users.
Included in the message data was the user's name, location in Sydney and email.
Postal addresses from around Australia were also in the file, including a Riley St in Sydney and the details of a wedding photographer in Brisbane.
As well as the addresses, phone numbers and names were also listed.
