Cheaterville: A Website Where The Broken Hearted Can Seek Revenge
Watch out adulterers, because the internet is now on to your cheating ways. Thanks to a website called Cheaterville.com, broken hearted users can now anonymously "out" cheaters by posting their profile for the whole world to see.
The site first made headlines after it broke the news that Jesse James had cheated on Kat Von D. Since then, it has almost 400,000 Facebook fans and scores an average of 10,000 new users every week.
Cheaterville was founded by James A. McGibney, a former Marine Corps member who started the site after one of his buddies' wives had an affair and he thought "it would be cool if there was a website where we could put her on blast."
McGibney said he expected the vast majority of alleged cheaters to be men, and isn't exactly sure why the site appeals more to the opposite sex: 81% of the alleged cheaters posted on the
site are women, while a whopping 40% of their outers
are other women. McGibney believes these stats prove that women are "much smarter" than men:
"Cheaterville proves women are more intelligent. If a guy finds out his girl is cheating, he usually writes something like, 'I hate her.' But when a woman posts, it's like a CSI investigation come to life. They're so thorough — they include videos, emails, texts, everything."
"I think the women who out other women are fed up with the fact that
they are faithful to their significant others, while their friends are
not — and they're disgusted,"
Cheaterville allows users to anonymously email posts as well as simply write them up on the site, so concerned parties can easily alert the potentially-cheated upon. Here's a sample of one post entitled "Heart Juggling Harlot":
An aspiring teacher, Ann has been with her boyfriend, Andrew, for nearly a decade. Unfortunately, Miss Shifty Squires has been seeing one of Andrew's former high school classmates on and off since 2010.
To her occasional bedmate's dismay, Ann is an attention needy enigma whom only appears when she's feeling emotionally destitute. Soothing her mentally and physically, Ann is satisfied with his touch for a brief period before she goes running back to her boyfriend. Keeping him hidden from family and friends, Ann constantly puts her lover through the ringer, giving him false hope that she'll be leaving Andrew.
When all is said and done, two men are poorly mislead by Squire's rotten antics.
If there's one downside to this is the potential of spreading false rumors. One of their advertisers, Truth in Posting, provides users with the opportunity to have offensive posts reviewed by a third-party arbitrator for a fee.
