A new leak website is wrestling with what to make available to the public, an illustration of the difficulty of balancing full transparency with respect for privacy in an age of mass disclosures.The site's founders eventually decided to pull from its public collection the haul from the Ashley Madison site along with more than a dozen other leaks.More controversially, the site also included gigabytes worth of username and password data, as well as copies of highly sensitive leaks including the Ashley Madison material and data drawn from the religious dating site Muslim Match in 2016 .Best acknowledged being uncomfortable with the Ashley Madison data but argued that any sensitive material was "stale and is now only useable for historical purposes".She said it was hard to predict how useful data could eventually be, pointing to a number of academic studies based on the Ashley Madison leak.
