"Fatties" Booted From Dating Site
"Letting fatties roam the site is a direct threat to our business model and the very concept for which BeautifulPeople.com was founded." - So says the site's founder after booting more than 5000 members for gaining weight.
The members were singled out after posting pictures of themselves that reportedly showed they had put on pounds over the holiday period. The site allows entry to new members only if existing members vote them as sufficiently attractive to warrant it. The US, the UK, and Canada topped the list of excluded members. The site has always been unrepentant about its selection process, calling itself "the largest network of attractive people in the world". The move was reportedly prompted by members themselves, who police the membership of the site to maintain a high - if highly subjective - standard of attractiveness.And here we thought Bear411 was bad.
