Ashley Madison gets a pretty bad rap because it's all they cater to, but other sites do it too and you don't hear anything about it. Hell, lavalife had ads a few years ago about it and it really wasn't scrutinized the way Ashley Madison is.
ahhh but the principle difference between those sites and this ashley madison one is that AM caters around infidelity. Those other ones may have 'one night stand' options, but they don't explicitely cater to people involved in relationships/marriages.
I find nothing morally wrong with a one night stand, but there's plenty wrong with encouraging infidelity.
Also, what's with the name "ashley Madison"?? Like giving it some young sounding girl's name makes it any less sleazy? pffft.
