You gotta love this. I mean, what motivates some of these people? I can’t imagine why someone would have such hate and vitriol for a stranger. I can’t imagine why my blog’s message of mutual understanding, hope, forgiveness and reconciliation (while being 100% against affairs) is so threatening to someone. But the world is full of people, and some of them are jerks.
And here’s one: Meet “Allison”.
Entitled: “Will You?”

Gee, Alison, if someone cheated on you, what makes you think you can take it out on me? That this is either appropriate or effective? Or that you know anything about me, let alone my wife?
But to answer your question: Yes, I did an awful thing (I guess you yourself have never told a lie, hurt anyone or made a mistake? I’m guessing you have). Something that I will always regret. I have remorse for that. Shame. Guilt. And my wife has something you know nothing about: Depth, character, and the ability to forgive. It was her decision to allow me to stay. Her decision to join me in some radical honesty, and to not just reconcile, but to explore how and where our marriage went wrong and how to address those deficiencies. She took her part of her responsibility for our marriage going off the tracks, which was the backdrop to what I did. And I took my share of that responsibility too. But I never blamed her for my poor decision. For the affair.
I guess for people like you, someone else is always to blame. And you yourself are perfect. That’s the definition of sociopath.
But again, why on earth would you think that an anonymous email from a stranger would make any impression upon me at all? I didn’t start this blog to seek the forgiveness of my readers. I only sought that from my wife. For the rest? I offer my blog, for which I get dozens of “thank you notes” every week to balance the occasional douche-nozzle like yourself. This is merely a sample of what I receive. It tends to tell me that what I’m doing is not only correct but helpful.
I don’t require people to read my blog or follow my advice. It’s an option. I suggest you exercise your option NOT to read my blog, if it, me, or my message of hope, forgiveness, understanding and reconciliation upsets you. I assure you, not you or a 100 jerks like you will ever sway me from my work here. So save your breath and your key-strokes.
I wish you good luck and pray that you learn some maturity and humbleness. It will suit you better than nastiness and get you further.
