    well, it just is freaking me out. I keep searching for some interesting real meaningful topics to see people discussing..feel getting into it too by myself.

    But all I could see is these overrated topics, is the guy above you this, that, here there !!

    Well, isn't that bothering you? icon_evil.gif

    Nope. There are lots of topics that aren't 'guy above you'.

    Those guys are having fun, so I say let 'em have fun. icon_wink.gif

    'guy above you' is a nice kind of topics , it makes us happy when receiving a compliment.
    But too many 'guy above you' threads is very irritating when they're on the front page.

    Nope. There are a lot of things in this world that are popular in this world that I don't care for. I don't let it get to me.

    It's an easy way for guys to pander for cheap views. There was a new spin on that recently with "What body part did you work on today?" A win-win for everybody - OP gets a zillion views and contributors waste nary a nanosecond posting something easy and mindless. Now if the next poster were smart he'd say "the guy above me is right!"

    Btw, what's that girl doing with my dog?

    It's like playing spin the bottle; you get to flirt online with someone without the social ramifications of actually flirting with them, because it's just a game. Or people have low self esteem and are fishing for compliments

    It seems seriously juvenile, to me.
    It used to drive me up a wall, because I like intelligent conversation.
    But, now I'm used to seeing those silly thread titles, and I just skip right past them.

    Edit:

    Another thing about them that I don't like is that the responses could very easily be insulting or hurtful. That isn't fun...

    Inorite? I see those threads and I'm like, why would I want to post in that thread? But instead of I dunno skipping it, I dwell on how much I hate it. Its like I dont want to be judged on my sex appeal or looks, thats why I have topless pics in my profile. Geez icon_rolleyes.gif

    Don't like them either. I think they should all be banned into the 'group activities' folder and whoever wants to indulge can go there.

    They are blocking the space for the really important threads on here, like
    what I had for lunch today,
    I've never had a boyfriend,
    am I attractive,
    what's on your mind is really embarrassing,
    Etc

    The biggest issue with the G.A.Y. threads is that they are so overly weighted in terms of what bubbles to the top on the RJ home page due to views and posts that they drown out a lot of other posts with more substantive content.

    Like... posts about fitness! Grrrr...

    Well how else would you do a group activity?

    "Based on your foresight abilities, predict the hotness of the guy that will appear below you."

    That will in no way flatter anyone since it's just a guess and way too random... But do it anyway!!
