“If people see me having dinner with a beautiful woman, they immediately believe that I’m having a love affair with her. Of course that’s rubbish. I’m not a playboy!”~ George Clooney

I do not believe that at this point I would have to explain who or what Ashley Madison is. Its been in the news for many, many days now worldwide.

But the domino effect of what did happen has begun. And it has turned dark, ugly, and even deadly.

Just recently, there were news reports coming from Toronto, Ontario, Canada about suicides of people who were members of the cheating website.

When I had heard about the hack and the information leak, almost immediately there were articles on the web about how members had committed suicide because of their private lives being turned loose into the public eye.

But at the time, it was false information and satirical articles.

Now it has become true.

The entire situation has officially become unraveled and out of control with the confirmed deaths linked to certain people and their memberships.

What I find sad is that as we go on, we are more than likely bound to come across even more suicides and harmful situations because of this hack and leak of information.

Avid Life Media could be facing many of class-action lawsuits of at least $760 million USD in damages.

And now the owners of the cheating website are offering hundreds of thousands of dollars in “bounty” to catch those people who are responsible for the hack and leak in the first place. fasd

This situation of vengeance, death, suicide, and overall heartache and pain will NOT cease at any time soon. More people will be exposed. Celebrities, athletes, musicians, etc. etc. etc. — it will all come out of the 37 million users within the database that was exposed to the public.

I think that most of us would agree that what this particular website offers, are services that are deplorable and horrible. However, for some people, it is exactly what they are looking for.

At first when the news came out about the hack and leak, there were many people who were cheering and applauding the actions. They would go on to say that the 37 million users deserved what they had coming to them.

But death? Suicide? They “deserved” that???

Really?

There’s going to be a lot of hurt people by the time retribution is over. Lives shattered, and already as stated — lives stolen away. There were even jokes made about how it would be financially beneficial to be a divorce lawyer right now.

Yes, I am a very firm believer that there are consequences for our actions. But who are we to say that these people are deserving? All because someone or some people decided that what Ashley Madison was doing was very wrong, that they became judge, jury, and now….. executioner.

I am so afraid to see how many more dominoes are going to fall because of this. How many more lives destroyed. Reputations ruined. Children scarred. And spouses betrayed. It becomes a story of “When trust turns to tryst.”

Hopefully we are able to get over and passed this by the end of 2015 without any more SERIOUS harm to anyone else on the planet.

Dark Secrets

“The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources. “~ Albert Einstein
It would be foolish to assume that not everyone has a deep dark secret. In fact, by some definition of the term, we all have secrets in our lives that we would prefer to keep away from the rest of the world.
 
However with the Peyton Place style of life in which I live, news came to me that was something that got leaked out. But “leaked” is such a judgemental term. I just ended up getting the news from someone who had heard it directly from the soure. Gossip? Maybe. But I can see how in this case the gossip wouldn’t be woven in lies but in truth.
 
It was difficult to hear that one couple who lives here, has some how been able to screw the utility company. 80% of it though, is from non-payment. And they still have their electricity on. They have not once been turned off.
 
In this state, it is a law that the utility and power company cannot shut off electricity for those who are on a medical need. Such as oxygen, and other assorted medical equipment that needs to be plugged in to keep that person alive.
 
There are some neighbors here that are on oxygen 24/7. But the ones that I am writing about… are NOT. At some point, they contacted the electric company and actually lied by saying that they were on these machines that had to be kept running day and night. They knew about this law, and they abused it.
 
Now their electricity bill has grown to over $2,000.
 
I do not know just how much energy that they actually use from daily living. I know that they are in a 2 bedroom, and I am only in a 1 bedroom. So there’s going to be more usage for cooling and heating purposes.
 
And so the thing about it that honestly blew my mind, is that they’ve never paid their electric bill. Obviously they haven’t for some time if it actually has gotten that high. For myself, that’s like nearly five years of usage! Who knows how long it has been since they’ve even dropped a penny at it?
 
I am reminded of my last relationship. My ex-girlfriend’s father was similar in his wicked ways. Not so much by telling sob stories and lying to the power company, but rather never paying the bills. Her father was an active member of movie and music clubs. Her parents had a enormous collection of DVD’s that numbered into the thousands, and was fast approaching ten thousand. The number of CD’s that they also had in their home was insane as well. Because they kept ordering and never paid.
 
I cannot imagine a life of dodging and ducking paying bills. It must have been hell for her parents.
 
I remember the conversation I had with her father when I asked how he could afford it all. He said, “Just let them come after me and try to collect. By the time that they catch up with me. I will probably be dead. At least, I hope so. Then they can take it out of me.”
 
It really bothered me to hear that from a man that my then girlfriend looked up to and adored the ground he walked on. Combined with the fear she had for him if she were to go against his wishes.
 
Nonetheless, the neighbors here will still have to pay that huge amount. They ARE using that much power and have accumulated that much debt to the power company. To believe that they are just going to “get away” with it, would be very foolish. It was just so shocking to hear their attitude about it. I thought they were a bit smarter than that. But it would explain a lot about their own personal lifestyle. Which is their own business of course, but living in this small place that I do… one must be careful of what they do and what they say.
 
I do my best to keep out of a major part of other people’s business who lives here. Mainly because I would not want them so deep into my own business. And learning my own dark secrets.
 
Many have assumed that because in the past, I have spent a lot of my free time with this couple that I would hang out with them a lot. So others believe that it was okay to ask me “Where are they today?”. I’m not their keeper. I had luckily put an end to that one by simply not answering the curious crowds.
 
This dark secret of my neighbor is out. It’s quite a shame.
