When hackers threatened that they would release the details of members of the website Ashley Madison, they meant it. Now, the details of millions of subscribers, their account info and more is up for view on a place called the dark web. The repercussion of this was that people could start to be found out having extra marital affairs.
Making this sort of information public, it wasn’t long before the radio stations got in on the act, one in particular who asked listeners that if they suspected their partners might be on the data base to call into the station. If you ask me, that was like opening a can of worms publicly.
One listener who had heard a woman say that she was single and a member of the site, rang up the station with a suspicious mind about her partner and his behavior of late being odd. Money going missing, working different hours. Now, the DJs could have taken the call to private and not announced it live that her suspicions were correct and that he was in fact on the data base.
On social media, the camps are divided as to whether this woman should have just checked the data base herself first before even going live on air about it. Some say the DJ producers are at fault, others say that the DJs could have been careful about what was said. Either way, there were no winners. The woman hung up after giving her two cents on how disgusting the sites were.
Personally, I would have done my homework first, before calling a radio station.
