I'm so late that nobody is going to read this, but is anybody else concerned about how the hackers are trying to impose their morals on our society? I'm female, and married, and I hope to God that my husband would never feel driven to use this site,but SERIOUSLY! What the people are doing on this site IS NOT ILLEGAL, why should this site be forced to shut down bc what they're doing most people find morally wrong? People can be assholes, I don't want someone overseeing all of my private actions and saying " oh no, that goes against "my moral code". Fuck you! If I want to have an affair I can fucking search the web if I want to. I want outrage on the hackers being fucking prudish and telling us how we should live. I don't want my husband to want to have an affair, but this kind of moral dictatorship is abhorrent. There is no way they should be able to bring down a site that is legal. If they were offering CP or murders for hire I would be singing a different tune, but no they're offering affairs, that's not illegal!

I read it!

It's actually not about the userbase, at least supposedly. AM was taking credit card payments to delete people from the database, then not following through. That's why the hacking group claims they hacked them. Sucks for the existing userbase, but possibly overall in the long run better for all the people who didn't join and get scammed? I don't know, the whole situation is weird.

Thank you for explaining, I hadn't read it and didn't understand about the site "promising" privacy.

I'm not. Aside from the alleged reasons for the hack, which /u/PassingShip presented (I'm not saying those are u/PassingShip allegations, BTW, I'm saying they presented the hackers' alleged motivations), I don't see how exposing the hypocrisy of other people is “imposing their morals on our society”. If anything, it's quite the opposite. Do you want to take a bet on how many of the (former) members turn out to be “social conservatives” that boast about their defence of “traditional family values”, fighting against any form of reform that would touch their (claimed) ideal of marriage as “one man, one woman, together for life”?

This isn't about legality, nor about private matters, or “imposing” somebody's morals on somebody else. If anything, it's about turning somebody's morals against those same people.

I like that point too, just afraid of a slippery slope.

Ha! I am so not even able to think of wanting to use a site like that. I'm very happily married to a guy who makes me feel awesome. I just was thinking they were threatening to close the site bc of morality, didn't realize it was about not providing the protection they promised.
