    I'm no wildlife biologist, but this doesn't seem like a workable business model :rolleyes:.

    I smell a giant bullseye for ugly self conscious hackers.

    Hey, we're pretty - don't expect us to figure out load balancing. (or whether or not you're a member).

    Can we start a website for crazy people? I think that would be fun.

    In the case of www.beautifulpeople.com, it might be redundant. :tongue2: Perhaps vacuous/narcissistic would be more the case.

    I could only imagine the people that sign up there. I can see how it's insulting but, really some people place certain traits higher than others. I personally prefer stuff that you can get stuff out of it. What do
    you get out if holding beauty on the highest regards? Ego-centrism.

    - You hold strength in high light, you get stronger (to varying degrees)

    - You hold Intelligence as the only way, you get smarter (to varying degrees)

    ..you can keep your beauty.

    Well I signed up.



    I'M ACCEPTED!!!! I'M BEAUTIFUL!!! :smile:

    So far I can't vote or do certain things because the site seems extremely buggy.

    ++I've joined because it gets you connections to all the good parties/clubs etc. I'm not really interested in the 'finding a beautiful mate' haha.

    Riiiiight :tongue2:.

    Congrats!

    Is there a place where you can post things for all the members to read? You should post a physics homework question!

    haha.

    There's this like shoutbox that everyone can see but I can't write anything on it I keep getting errors :(. I will though it'll be a nice and easy force question :P.

    So far after chattin with a few of the ladies on this website I've noticed most of them are complete idiots.

    I think everyone gets accepted at first, it's the following 48 hours apparently that people will vote for you or against you. At least that's what I gather from reading the article.
