This could get messy. Hackers have released data they claim is from the Ashley Madison web site, a dating sited for married people. It includes, names, addresses, email accounts, personal profiles, etc.

Of course, there is no guarantee it is accurate either.

I forsee a fair bit of turmoil in some quarters. A family member of someone I work with has already split with their spouse over this leak...

Ha ha, I can honestly say I have nothing to fear from this one.  For a change.


But, seriously, you would think that by now people would get the message that there is no secrecy out there on the web.

It is times like this which make me question the wisdom of my decision to take no matrimonial cases. :-)

And yet for some people even the compromise of their Beliefnet identity could be life threatening.

I'm not seeing how that's possible?

I dream in my lifetime uhmericans will come to realize hezbollah, hamas, and isis gain followers by helping society AND the only way to defeat them is to perform greater good.

There are countries where they kill gays.


There are countries where they kill witches.


There are countries where they kill women who have sex with anyone other than their husband.


There are countries where they kill anyone who criticizes the ruling faction.


There are countries where they kill anyone who criticizes Islam, the Prophet, or the Koran.


Take a look at the list of forums...

Sadly, all that is true.  


Thank goodness most of us on B'net live in countries where we can freely express our views and we have the right to be right, to be wrong, to be wise, to be foolish, to be reverant, to be silly, etc...

I'm well aware of this... and am Baha'i who tells my fellow believers to pack up and move out of iran rather than continuous complaining.


people in such countries should not visit ANY questionable sites because there is so much power to track people on the internet.

As a Baha'i you should also know that what you call "... continuous complaining." is one of our laws that says you should appeal to your government against injustice, instead of taking up a Jihad which was carried out during the Babi Dispensation, and which we are specifically forbidden.


There is also another of our laws which says to obey the Head of our Faith, the Universal House of Justice, which doesn't want Baha'is to leave Iran.

That is good advice. Sadly, studies in sociology and psychology have shown that people will ignore being watched by store cameras and other monitoting devices after a short while, even when there is direct feedback like live screeens showing them being recorded!
