AM Hackers did a service.
I couldn't disagree with you more. While I can understand that the hackers taking down AM weren't being wthical, the greater crime was the sleaze and knowing complicity of the AM management and leaders. The users and the management of AM got what they diserved.

If I made a site to aid bank robbers, no one would think twice if I was hacked and taken down. I feel the same way about the AM site. The people using it were committing crimes, they were hurting other people, they were unethical sleazes. The AM management were specifically doing this as well as committing fraud.

I think both groups got just what they deserved.

Re: AM Hackers did a service.
I'm sorry, you clearly don't know what you're talking about.

First: how were people registered at the AM site committing crimes?? Which crime?

Second: how were they hurting other people and unethical sleazes? 

I signed up for AM when I was SINGLE. This wasn't a site just for people who were married. Many of the women I spoke with were either divorced or separated or had full understanding of their spouse for being on the site.

You don't know anything about these people, yet you've decided -- with all the smugness and moral sanctimony of your typical ignorant fool -- that everyone on this site somehow deserves "what they get."

Who hell are you? Pull your head out, shake the crap from your brain, and try to understand that your misconceptions about all the "evil" that was going on at AM.....wasn't really. At least for a lot of people -- a lot of people who will be hurt by this.

@SamArv

Your post was very informed. AM is not soley for married or in relationship individuals.

However, lets not resort to adding to the hatred within the previous post. The post you responded to was ignorant and I understand your frustration but lets rise above it. We should be sharing information and thoughts here respectfully.

AM site was not a criminal site. Your views are deluded, and your comments moot.
