Chicken-Fried News: Affair-well cheaters

We’re not mad. We’re disappointed.

It wasn’t a huge surprise when word came out that some okc.gov and ok.gov email addresses were among those revealed in the Ashley Madison hacks.

Ashley Madison is a “matchmaking” website for adulterers, which is kind of genius. If you haven’t heard of anybody finding a date on PleaseDateMe.com, then that site probably sucks. But you’re never supposed to know about anyone having success with Ashley Madison, so if it doesn’t work, you can’t complain to your spouse or friends.

Forget for a moment that adultery is at best in a moral gray area: The most glaring error these people made was using their work email addresses.

Do you know quickly someone can set up a Gmail or Yahoo or AOL address? About as long as it takes someone to read this far. If the 25 local government employees whose email addresses were leaked weren’t smart enough to do that, it’s hard to believe they would successfully fool their dearly beloved marriage partners.

It looks as if the City of OKC isn’t too impressed either. Word is it will update its IT policy in response to the revelations.

In the interim, “outed” employees might consider updating their LinkedIn profiles.
