Lately every time I'm on macrumors I get an ad for a dating service called ashleymadison.com, which caters to people who want to cheat on their spouse. I think this is inappropriate and probably seen as immoral and offensive by many.

Life is short, have an affair!

How can you argue with a slogan like that? It's very fun.

No one is forcing you to become a member.

I don't see how it is inappropriate or offensive......

Without ads, there would be no MR or any of the other sites we frequent. It keeps the site going, do you all want to pay a grand a year for being here?

I think not.

$1,000 a year. Really? Exaggerate much?

Yes, he was exaggerating. And successfully made his point.
