Just in case you need another reason to avoid these hook-up sites, not there's more public shame -- 10 times more shame then the great Ashley Madison hack of July 2015.

An excerpt from The Guardian:

Adult dating and pornography site company Friend Finder Networks has been hacked, exposing the private details of more than 412m accounts and making it one of the largest data breaches ever recorded, according to monitoring firm Leaked Source.

The attack, which took place in October, resulted in email addresses, passwords, dates of last visits, browser information, IP addresses and site membership status across sites run by Friend Finder Networks being exposed.

The breach is bigger in terms of number of users affected than the 2013 leak of 359 million MySpace users’ details and is the biggest known breach of personal data in 2016. It dwarfs the 33m user accounts compromised in the hack of adultery site Ashley Madison and only the Yahoo attack of 2014 was larger with at least 500m accounts compromised.

If I wanted people to know that I like cucumbers coated in chilli-oil inserted into my various orrifices, because I like the burn, I'd post that freely on IAB. But that's not what I want the world to know about me. ....wait, what? Oh damn....TMI, I think......:P

Whoops! Sounds like this would be a great time to specialize in divorce law.

Lol, this reminds me of South Park this season with troll finder exposing internet history. Glad I'm not a part of that stuff.
