So 95% of Ashley Madison accounts were males and vast majority of women profiles were fake


The website was pretty much a fraud and chances are, few people actually had an affair because there weren't many real women profiles.

1. It was a long con, I think. I also think that some so called "reporters" or

"opinion columnists" writing for men's magazines participated in the con.

If you look around on the web, you see the odd artice where a reporter goes on the site and does interviews of the people who use it. The fellows interviewing women sound like they're trying to write Penthouse Forum or Playboy LTTE's at the PG-13 level. It all just smacks of fakery in hindsight.

It just proves the old adage right: A fool and his money ARE soon parted!!

3. that's not how women get into an affair

Someone at work pays attention, out with the girls and a guy pays attention, etc. if a married woman wants an affair, there's plenty of less cumbersome ways to do it. And they're up close and real.

Men (not all!) don't care if it'll get them laid.

4. True it probably would have gone out of business then

not being able to deliver what it was selling.

7. Maybe nobody wanted to admit it wasn't working for them.

Kind of like the emperor with no clothes.

8. There were bots sending emails of interest and replying to men's....

 

And every time you read or send a message it costs you. Then they disappear and it starts up again as soon as your out of credits. Then some bots would ask you to video chat on another expensive site- owned by Ashley Madison.
Lots of men figured it out- but how are they going to sue them without their wives finding out?

13. Apparently sex workers were also using the site as a way to

increase their customer base. So, maybe it was a case of stopping by for a drink and deciding to stay for a meal...hard to know or understand the motivation of someone that would use that kind of service.

When things seem too good to be true, they often are.

5. Looks like it was a thinly veiled cover for a prostitution agency.

6. Probably why Josh Duggar set up two accounts...

 

Wasn't getting any interest, figured he would present himself differently in a different account...little did the pea-brain know there were no women out there perusing the profiles, nad that was the reason why he wasn't getting any.

14. Duggar admitted he was unfaithful to his wife.

So it would appear he managed somehow to meet actual women.
