    I think I actually remember him...but he was shunned for being a nasty judgemental douchebag, not because he wasn't pretty enough - correct?


    Well yeah but I meant his shunning of someone based on their looks didn't sit well with anyone on RJ.

    Scotticus saidI will say, the OP does bring up a very good point. Beyond simply the beautifully sculpted bodies that effectively define this site, there are a LOT of really good-looking faces here too. Why is this the case? My theory is that it relates a lot to inherent body image. Those that already have attractive enough faces may feel they've reached a certain "threshold" where they expect to look not just good, but utterly perfect in all manner of appearance. And so men are drawn to these sites to gain wisdom concerning strategies for long-term fat loss and muscle gain.


    I like this theory. I think having good-looking features does push a man to work on improving his body shape, in order to "complement" the whole look. It makes sense to me icon_smile.gif

    I have. I refer to him as orangette kid. He joined the site and made this really charming thread about making candied orangettes for a boy he liked. Everyone was all awwww soo cuuute!

    His second thread was something along the lines of "so and so was at the pool with this really ugly guy, why would so and so hang out with an ugly guy?? he can do so much better!"

    Kid got flamed for 8 pages and deleted his account on the spot. It was pretty awesome.


    LOL. Orangettes? icon_razz.gif
    Man I love you....

    My rebuttal would be that I could "verify" myself and then use fake pictures. I know a few of the people I've tracked because I was bored have done that.

    I can't believe people would post fake pics. It's really disgusting that people would try to deceive everyone. That's why all of my pictures are 100% genuine.

    <----------- Especially this one.

    Woah! Woah! Woah! No one said anything about Dallas. My ankle tracker won't let me go that far.

    But as soon as you remove the picture that got you verified, you lose the verification. isn't that how it works? :S

    I agree this is an amazing site. I have been on many gay sites from time to time and RJ is in a league of its own. That is partly because most guys on here take their health and fitness seriously and really do look good. But it is more than that. Yes, of course a lot is about sex (just read the comments on the photographs!) but it is also about looking out for others, sharing information and experience. I wish I had discovered it years ago. It is the only site where I have not been abused for being on it because of my age and for that I am grateful. Thanks guys!

    [quote]My experience with this is that guys have looked WAY better in person than in their photos! Either they are not photogenic or aged really gracefully and look better in person. I've yet to meet anyone from RJ that was a let down.


    I haven't found one person that looks less attractive than their pics that I personally met. At least not from RJ. But I have met people from hookup sites that were using photos that were several years old. Big disappointment.

    Guys tell me I look better in person and that I look younger for someone that's forty.

    Although, I have seen candid videos of some of the guys on this site where they are not all coiffed and primped. Compared to their professional photos they look like nothing special. In fact, they look less than average.

    Makeup, the right professional studio lighting and Photoshop all work wonders.

    Ok that's weird. Why aren't moderators enforcing the rule? The verification process is useless in this case. Anyone could get verified
