Geo mapping Ashley Madison

No, I do not look at the raw data. Don't want to know which of my neighbors is stupid enough to pay for the infidelity service. But it's certainly interesting to find out the gender distribution. Reminds me of an old joke:

"Did you hear about the free brothel? You don't have to pay a penny to get laid."
"No way. Have you been there?"
"Not personally. But my wife has."

Looks like there is a possibility of international arbitrage.

Perhaps a joint venture with Airlines?

There seems to be a higher percentage of women members in socially conservative countries (India, Philippines, USA).

Hypothesis: There are less opportunities in socially conservative for women for a discreet chat-up than, say, in Western Europe.

Wouldn't explain why Japan is so red, though.

Good comment on the whole issue (http://uk.businessinsider.com/ashley-madison-hack-is-still-an-invasion-of-privacy-2015-8):

I'm no sympathizer with anyone who cheats on a spouse. Each of them deserves the bright-red stew of shame they now find themselves boiling in, regardless of how they were exposed. But releasing the information of 37 million people who thought they were conducting business in private online sets a horrendous precedent.

Today, it's a dating website for cheaters, and we all laugh. Tomorrow, maybe it's the names of anyone who has ever had an abortion in the US. Or how much money you make each week, or your Social Security number and your home address. Or maybe all 4.5GB of your Gmail inbox will be splayed across the internet for all to read.

No matter how much you insist you don't have to hide — no matter how little you actually have to hide — we all have the right to privacy. And we should be leery of anyone who would seek to take it from us, whether it's hackers with good intentions or government bureaucrats with crummy intentions.

@Jochen: No one deserves it to be shamed. Full stop.

Interresting blog post also on the topic: http://www.troyhunt.com/2015/08/heres-what-ashley-madison-members-have.html
