here are some stats:
While 20% of all married men have had extra marital affairs, close to 16% of all married women have strayed from their marriage to explore relationship beyond their partners. The married persons found to be cheating mostly fall under the 34 years age group. Often, married women are found to have extra marital affairs with men of younger age.More than 71 per cent of the married women were aware of their spouses’ extra marital affairs. Similarly, 42 per cent of the married men were aware of their spouses affairs.

I’m late to this thread but I’d like to point out one thing. The CoS members may have been banned but there ARE ways around those blocks. Masking and strait up changing your IP address are not impossible.
And lately it seems that almost all relationship posts made on brand new accounts turn into drama within the first page, so I ‘m not really surprised that anyone would be thinking they’re back.
@Gingersnap: QuietOne’s stats come from one of Oprah’s friends. (I wouldn’t trust him as far as I can throw him.) The guy is a marital therapist, so maybe 1 in 3 of his clients have cheated on their wives, but I will never believe that to be true of any large percent of the population.
Is anyone else a little bothered by the other thread on this being closed? We’re not allowed to talk about something going on here on the bee (No fingers were pointed, no particular posts were called out as trolls, honest questions were asked) yet there are at least 3 other posts on the Bee right now that have turned to drama and name calling, and they’re not shut down. What gives?

@joeandangela: The one thing I would like to address is where you say “When you are on the internet you have to take these types of things at face value.”
Very little that you read on the internet should be taken at face value. Unless you have an identified, credible source, you should always have an index of suspicion.
When you read statistics for example, if the source isn’t posted, you need to check it yourself before accepting the information as legitimate.

To me, none of the cheating posts I’ve read recently have seemed very fake. If they are trolls, they need to work on their trolling. Because I could troll harder in my trollsleep with both trolls tied behind my trollback.
But there have been a lot of them lately. Perhaps we should all take this moment to reflect on the fact that getting married is not about getting married. It is about getting married to someone you want to get married to.

@futuremrshc: I had this same thought yesterday-why can’t we speculate and discuss other threads? And I know exactly what nasty threads you’re talking about and yeah, nobody bothered to do anything about those and they were way worse.

@futuremrshc: The OP asked for that thread to be closed, so the mods obliged. They didn’t just close it on a whim.

@MissBoPeep: Even though you weren’t replying to me, thank you for the explanation:)

@MissBoPeep: Thanks for letting me know.
It certainly appeared that a mod just showed up and closed it.

@2ndtimeacharm, @futuremrshc: No problem.
This is what she posted in that thread:
“Fair enough, I’ll flag the posts for the mods to look into them and I’ll have this thread closed! Thanks everyone, glad I’m not the only one who thought suspiciously.
EDIT: MODERATOR PLEASE CLOSE THREAD WHEN POSSIBLE :)”
She posted in the support section asking for it to be closed as well.

If it is the CoS ladies (or who ever really), everyone participating in this thread is giving them exactly what they want (including me, I guess).
And to be honest, I’d rather assume the posts are real and help if I can, than assume that they’re not real and make things worse on people who are actually going through something shitty.

@Amaryllis: “Guess what — there were trolls before the snark board, and there will continue to be trolls with them gone.”
I agree. Trolls were on this board long before the snark board drama, so I’m really not sure why every supposed troll is now linked back to those guys.

@bells: The mods have said multiple times what the protocol for “calling trolls out” is. Flag their posts, period. I’ve seen a number of threads (that ended up being legitimate posts by regular posters who were hiding their “identities”) in which these poor girls were torn apart at their time of greatest need, when all that needed to be done by suspicious people was click the “flag” button below the post.
Some of these posters requested to be removed from the message boards altogether, the responses were so malicious. A simple IP check by the mods would clear this up easily (if the IP matches a current account, I expect that would dispel suspicion), but instead posters start a troll witch hunt.
