    So basically, my university has an unofficial school website in which people can talk anonymously, and there were some (presumably) gay guys on it gossiping about guys on campus and who was hot/not, who was out/closeted, who was promiscuous etc.

    Occasionally, when I'm bored, I read through the logs of the conversations because the conversation is stored like a long single thread, and I noticed that I was mentioned at one point for having "huge ears". I'm not particularly insulted by this -- there are many more things more wrong with my appearance than my ears, so it's funny that they fixated on that -- but it does raise the question of how forums like that (and gossip appearing in such sources) should be handled.

    What do you think? Some themes to think about: freedom of speech, outlets of frustration, anonymity. (Not to make this feel like an essay prompt...)

    People who have no life...gossip. Consider the sources.

    Big hands, big feet, big nose may or may not indicate a big dick.

    But big ears always = big dick (in my experience)

    I say enjoy the attention.

    Then find the guy and show him what else is big.

    Hey,

    If they were desperate enough to pick something like "ears" to knock you on, you know they are jealous that the rest of you is flawless (at least what we can see here!!) Losers :mad:

    Ignore them and don't let them know you even saw it. Not worth your time. :rolleyes:

    don't ever put a shirt on and they will not even know what color eyes you have.

    There was a badboy list at my college, some of my buddies where on it. Some harsh stuff was said. Called a few guys rapists. (other guys not the guys I knew) There use to be a website called juicycampus.com or something like that, it was taken down because of all the slander that was what going on. It could have been much worse.

    Libel actually. Slander is spoken, libel is written.
