Re: Is this site legal?
I don't understand how anyone would think this site is illegal! It's married people hooking up with unmarried/married people. It's called an affair an although morally wrong, it is not illegal. What I don't understand is why the hackers are not being prosecuted also. They should be. I don't understand because they leaked credit card information. If I bought something through eBay, Amazon, or even paid my bills online & a hacker was caught exposing the info would they not be prosecuted? Everbody thinks that's exactly what these men/women deserve but no, they deserve for their spouse to get a fat chunk of everything in that impending divorce proceding. They don't need more bills added on because of the credit card leak. The cheated on spice needs to get as much as they can. I thought it was very funny that many of the guys expessing disgust are government officials where I live that I KNOW for a fact have cheated on their wives. I bartended @ a couple of well known adult entertainment clubs for years! Lol

Re: It's is the Internet
That is what I was wondering, it is not ethical for sure, is it really legal? I wonder how they would not end up with problems with the governments with this site.

Re: It's is the Internet
Agree, you do not expect privacy in the internet. Once it is there you can expect that it is disclosed to the world.

Is this site legal?
I did not even know could be a legal site. How are they able to survive up top this point without any legal issue?

Re: It's is the Internet
That a site supporting infidelity might prove less than trustworthy. Who'd have thought?

It's is the Internet
Let's just say if you don't want to potentially be exposed to the public or have something exposed to the public that you should not interact with the Internet for that particular instance. No matter how stringent the protocols of the site, in situations such as this privacy agreements and such don't mean anything.
