I have a public confession to make before everyone finds out.

By now you've probably heard that the cheating website Ashley Madison(.com) has been hacked. The users' emails, credit card details and sexual fantasies have been leaked.

Millions of members of the infidelity website are now exposed.

In Australia hundreds of everyday average people who've lived another private life have had their deepest secrets made publicly available at the click of a mouse - government department employees, police, businessmen, tradies, everyday mums and dads.

Australia is chockers with cheaters:

Sydney and Melbourne are on the top 10 list of world cities of extra-marital affairs.
Sydney rates third in the world as a city of cheaters - the cheating capital of Australia.
One in 17 Sydneysiders have a profile on Ashley Madison. That's a whopping 251,813 accounts in our own harbour city.
Websites have sprung up overnight where anybody can type in an email address and bust the neighbour.

That means all my friends and family will find out the truth. So it's time to fess up.

Yes, I am embarrassed to admit if you type in my email address you will find....nothing.

I really do feel like an outsider. A social misfit. I'm so humiliated.

I don't know how I'll be able to look my friends in the eye again.

You can check your own email address here, if you dare admit to the truth too.



Sydney's sister city of San Fran... or is it brother city?




Fortunately for me, my sexual fantasies were so weird and beyond belief they refused my application to join.

As far as I am aware, all these dating web sites feature beautiful young things. Why is it I only get approaches from Nigerians with impossible sounding sexy names?

Men Get Off Better With New Women PlanksConstant (Planck's Constant)

Nearly all these dating sites are scams. The women simply don't exist. I joined one site for a joke. My profile was deliberately designed so no woman would ever contact me. Sure enough with 24 hours my inbox was full of (fake)messages from (imaginary) women wanting to meet me.

Paul sadly there are a few of us left, my wife and I have been together for 40 years no divorce or infidelities we believe in God (the real one) and believe in honesty and truth, we are clearly abnormal and should be branded as outcasts along with you and those below!

Damn it ! All my life I have sensed that I was a bit different from most of the flock, but couldn't put my finger on what it was . Any ladies here up for a 5 minute fling ? At my age and physical condition, any longer would do me in !

Ashley Madison has got nothing on labor. They have been f......g and cheating on us for ever. Just look at the union history.

Lawyers probably orchestrated this to get Divorce work. Could be a Bonanza for rhem.

IF there are to be any abandoned and frustrated ladies in SE Qld may I offer my sympathies and my contact number ! Signed: The Good Samaritan.

fingers crossed, Paladin

No, it is not his current address. But it will be. Perhaps very soon.

Now we know, the Paul Z.Natty on Ashley Madison is not Paul Zanetti.

All night long I've heard nothing but the cheering and shouts of joy from "Leech Lawyers" who frequent the " Family Whore Court!"

Oh Dear. I must live on another planet. I thought Ashley Madison was a fashion label.

Quite apart from supposedly secure sites like Ashley Madison, lots of people store their information on the cloud without thinking twice. The cloud is simply a data centre somewhere where all your information is stored, its security at the mercy of the employees of the data centre. An example is Dropbox. I wouldn't touch it, but millions worldwide do.

Famous Last Words

Well that's a relief, I thought this Ashley Madison crap was the month long run up to another bloody reality show. Well, I suppose it is in a way.

Seriously Concerned: You press Enter when the curser is INSIDE the box. Just thought you should know.
