    The story gets better after that. With this dating site, you only get to be a member if enough members vote you in as "beautiful" within 48 hours after uploading your profile and photo.

    I met my girlfriend, a Raiderette, on that site. It's the place to go if you want to pull 8 to 10s.

    Demonstrably. Proverbially.

    These people sound like real winners. Flippin' douchebags. Whatever beauty there is on the outside is pretty much negated by the ugly underneath.

    At least I can diet. You can't fix asshole.

    And some people wonder why young girls have so many body image issues.

  6. This is a phenomenal marketing move by this Web site, but that's all it is.

    To believe this release, you'd have to believe that

    a) 5,000 people gained weight over the holidays.
    b) 5,000 immediately posted new photos of themselves that clearly demonstrated the added weight.
    c) The "community" complained, only days after the holidays, that too many people had gotten too fat.
    d) The site endeavored to come up with some way of finding those who had gotten fat, judging only by photos uploaded by the participants.
    e) All those people were removed.

    Sorry, doesn't pass the smell test. But the release has served its purpose by generating publicity for the Web site and getting people up in arms over its "elitism."

  7. WFW ... You nailed it.

    Perhaps -- or maybe chubby black dude got kicked off the site.

    Actually, it sounds like a great idea: Beautiful, shallow, self-centered people meet more of their kind, engage in empty three-month relationships that hit the rocks when they have nothing in common except being beautiful, shallow and self-centered. Then they head back to the site. Wash, rinse, repeat. Great business plan... :D

    Oh, and irony of ironies: An ad for a plus-sized dating site is at the bottom of the page now ...

    Do they get kicked off for losing weight? Perhaps given a map of directions to donut shops and pizza parlors?

    I saw this earlier today on CNN so I quickly signed up. There were four women users in Michigan and I'm pretty sure two of them were not beautiful at all. Place was a complete joke. I deleted the profile about five minutes later.

    I'm guessing the people on AshleyMadison.com are only slightly bigger douches than the people on this new site.
