    We don't, but then again, we don't know much of anything, let's just be perfectly honest. We know nothing.

    That's what I'm thinking. On the surface at least the site seems 'equal opportunity beauty' and is offered in many different languages. Now, if it started turning into a Stormfront kinda website (you know, neo-nazis) and only 1 race or very light skinned people were being voted 'beautiful' and the rest booted - that would be an issue. But hey, they're "inclusive" and just trying to get a groovy love fest happenin' with 'beautiful people'. As for the IQ test dating site, I think that sounds neat.

    It would also be different if you signed up to a 'regular' dating site and suddenly got booted for not being attractive or educated or interesting enough. Then you could be wtf.

    Conceding that the latest set back was a "very embarrassing day", Hodge said he felt "very sorry" for the "unfortunate people who were wrongly admitted to the site and believed, albeit for a short time, that they were beautiful"

    It seems like a joke. I keep saying this is a joke. The Wikipedia article says the owner was inspired by Zoolander.

    I've seen your pics. Chances are you can make the cut.

    Then you can fink on them and let us know all the dirt.

    Who knows? It's been done before.

    And now the simulacrum has become the real, we are lost within self-referential loops of reflection reflecting other reflections, and we no longer have any idea of what the real truly is.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    You know.. I don't have a problem with things like this.. but I also don't feel bad at all when bad things happen to people like that.

    With people like that joining, I'm surprised someone hasn't created a "We fell in love due to the Shrek virus! If it hadn't hit I'd never have met Ugly McScummerson!" story for publicity. :3

    Rachel Godfrey, a 31-year-old Australian nanny living in LA, said she received an email telling her she was rejected two weeks after being accepted. "I was getting on really well with this American guy and we were going to go on a date and then they said I'd been chucked off and they locked me out of the site," she said. "Now I can't get in touch with him."

    Godfrey said she is planning to have a makeover and professional photo shoot before reapplying to the website. "What if he's the one? This is only way I'll be able to get in touch with him," she said. "If that doesn't work I'll see what I can do with Photoshop."
    ROFL, what a pathetic primate.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Meh, it's hard to get worked up over this. It sounds too elaborate just for a joke. Anyway, they're doing their things I'm doing my thing and never the twain shall our paths meet. Welp, back to doing quizzes on OKUgly.

    I tried to log in this morning,and got this message.
    Due to recent extensive media coverage, the BeautifulPeople.com servers are experiencing latency issues. In response we have had to limit applicants from browsing the site.

    The Sign up process remains fully operational, and we remain open to all members.

    We encourage you to sign up to beautifulpeople.com by creating a profile; giving you access to exclusively beautiful people; locally and from around the world.

    Please check back later if you wish to browse BeautifulPeople.com as an applicant.

    We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.

    Kind Regards
    BeautifulPeople Team

    Note:
    If you have just created a profile and were forwarded to this page, your profile was registered correctly.
    The front page also listed all the news stations/ papers they've been noted in.

    I'm pretty sure that article was set out for press purposes. Also, the "about" beautiful people is kind of funny, specifically this paragraph. (I laughed at the bolded.)

    Over 700 couples have been married through unions founded on BeautifulPeople.com. Thousands of people are in committed relationships and many have gone on to start beautiful families. Everyone on the site is attractive, so there is a lot of chemistry between members as seen at the regular events and parties hosted through BeautifulPeople.com.

    Many of our members have been ‘discovered’ and have secured lucrative positions in TV, modeling and acting careers.

    BeautifulPeople has also become a playground for the aesthetically blessed for those who seek adventure, chemistry and if partial, a less serious approach to dating!
