    There is an oline dating service that you might have hear of that attempts to weed out unattractive members. Only beautiful people are allowed to join BeautifulPeople Network.

    Prospective members must submit a photo and profile; other members of the opposite sex (yes, they weed out them too) rate the person over a 72-hour period--deciding whether they are worthy of joining the community.

    I wonder if this is as shallow as it appears. I mean, MENSA has a fairly exclusionary membership. Shouldn't all private groups be allowed to define their membership? I took a quick gander at their website. Not that impressed. Yes the people are attractive but not overwhelmingly so. They are all young. I'm sure that some people would find Greg Hodge, the managing director of Beautiful People.com, to be ugly.

    This seems to be more of a social networking site designed to stroke the ego, rather than find someone a date. This site could accomplish one thing: get all the stupid... errr... beautiful people to interbreed, eventually rendering them unable use the Internet and ending this idiocy.

    I wonder how long it will be before someone sues this website for not being admitted, claiming mental anguish. 9 out of 10 people are rejected.

    Shallow as all hell!! Let's hope that being sterilized because you're an idiot is a prerequisite of the site too.

    From the site:
    What is BeautifulPeople.net?
    BeautifulPeople.net is an elite and exclusively Beautiful community, founded for the purpose of creating personal and professional relationships between people who stand out from the majority because of their attractive appearance and personal qualities.

    Under Terms and Conditions:
    2. ELIGIBILITY
    2.1. By accepting these conditions the Applicant warrants and represents to BeautifulPeople the following:
    a) that the Applicant is over 18 years old;
    b) that the Applicant has not been convicted of any offence relating to violence or any offence under the Protection from Harassment Act 1997 (or under any statutory enactment replacing or amending such Act); and/or
    c) that the Applicant has not been subject to any injunction or any order to pay damages under the Protection from Harassment Act 1997 (or under any statutory enactment replacing and/or amending such Act).

    ***So you can't be beautiful and violent... damn there goes all the ultimate fighters...

    ***Feel free to put your pic up they can use it for advertising
    6.2. BeautifulPeople may copy or reproduce any information Posted by the User on the Web Site in any form and in any manner as BeautifulPeople may think fit.

    Lord are people really that shallow that they only want to date AND even NETWORK with people who are attractive. Dating I can see.. but networking... c'mon that troll of a man might be best friends with a multi-millionaire venture capitalist.

    I suppose the one flaw I see here is that this is only based on one specific type of beauty, the stereotypical traditional beauty, which is only considered 'beautiful' to a certain type of person.

    However on the flip side of this, I suppose there are websites for overweight people, christians, jewish people, black people, all kinds of people so it's nothing new. It's just the voting that gets me.

    "Beauty is a curse on the world. It keeps us from seeing who the real monsters are."

    The Carver - Nip/Tuck

    This just rang in my head as i read this. A slightly jaded quote on the world, but it seems to be more and more true everyday.

    Sounds like the ugly people from High School got together and made a site to punish others.

    Ive heard about this site before. I don't blame them, or envy them, and they are all more "beautiful" than me (at least until I am making 100 G's a year). But a lot of them are mere 8's.

    fuck, that music is annoying

    After more poking around, some of them women are beautiful, in that overtanned, overstretched over-botoxed, plastic chest and lips porn starlet sort of way.

    It is my gut reaction to hate them, and that's because they are beautiful.

    Actually, the more I look, the more I see they aren't even that hot. meh.

    ...and Im sure you tell them where to where to get off too, Rouge.
    Yes, Ive spotted a few out of control ego's round these parts too but this particular website sounds like a flytrap for the worst of the worst. Find out where their next meet up is & drop a bomb, please.

    Not that farfetched. The voting seems rather out there, though. 'Gated communities' are all over the net, though.

    It really doesn't matter to me. I'd rather stay on here and post crazy things with the rest of you.

    To me, beauty is more than outward appearance. An average looking person with a nice personality turns me on.

    BTW if I am joking with you about tagging you, it's just a joke. Don't get upset peeps. If it bugs you, pm me, and politely ask me to not do it. This is the internet. It is not where I choose to find romance.
