The List has been leaked. The names have been scoured. More than a few were familiar to you…
AshleyMadison is all the talk, but your name being on the list is not a conviction, at least not yet. It does not even mean you used it.
The site is supposedly anonymous. Meaning anyone could enter a User Name (not their real name), use a Prepaid Gift Card and a dummy (or generic) email address. Reports indicate some did just that. However, some most certainly did not.
Also, just because you were on the list did not mean you had an affair. It means that perhaps you wanted to, intended to, or wanted to have some chat time with a fictional woman. The man to woman ratio makes it highly unlikely that those users of the site were “successful.”
It also means that some of those listed in all likelihood had affairs and spent money doing so. In some instances, it’s being reported, thousands of dollars were spent. This is trouble for several reasons. 1) It is circumstantial evidence of an affair, certainly inclination (or infatuation), and 2) spending money on a girlfriend, or boyfriend, is Marital Waste.
It is at best just embarrassing and at worst indicative of family problems in the past and probably some more to come.
