Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Our post about the unknown individuals behind the hack of Ashley Madison, a site that promotes extramarital hookups, revealing personal and financial data of users attracted a huge response.

Maybe that's because of the numbers involved: 3.2 million users overall, with approximately 70,000 located in the Denver metro area, according to an estimate the site offered to us earlier this year.

Whatever the case, many of our readers found it difficult to know for whom to root in the current situation.

Not this person, however. She's definitely anti-cheater, as you'll see.
