    BeautifulPeople.com, a social-networking and dating site for "attractive people," announced on Monday that it has removed 5,000 members from around the world for putting on too much weight over the holiday season.

    According to the site, "many members posted photos of themselves celebrating Christmas and the New Year--revealing that they have let themselves go. Vigilant members, who take pride in the standards demanded by the site, called for action."

    Greg Hodge, the site's managing director, said in a statement that the service "responded to complaints by moving the newly chubby members back to the rating stage. This is the same as having them re-apply. Their re-applications were reviewed by existing members and only a few hundred were voted back in. Over 5,000 were rejected."

    The United States led the list of ousted members with 1,520 people being told to leave the social network. The site also let go of 832 people from the U.K. and 533 from Canada. Russia lost the fewest people with just 88 being told to find a new social network.

    "Every year we see that some of our members from western cultures eat and drink to excess over the holidays and clearly their looks suffer," Hodge said in a statement. "The USA has been grossly over-indulging since Thanksgiving--it's no wonder that so many members have been expelled from the network. We hope they will be back after shedding the festive pounds."

    "As a business, we mourn the loss of any member, but the fact remains that our members demand the high standard of beauty be upheld," BeautifulPeople.com founder Robert Hintze said in a statement. He went on to say that allowing those members to stay on the site "is a direct threat to [the company's] business model and the very concept for which BeautifulPeople.com was founded."

    Now it's time to hear from you. Did BeautifulPeople go overboard? Is the site itself troubling, since users are judged by their looks? Let us know in the comments below.

    I'm unable to fathom why anyone would want to be part of a site like that.

    Wait, it just came to me, ego, has to be ego and self-absorbtion.

    Wow. Well, I guess when you know what you exactly want in a partner, thats where to go.

    What about www.gold digger.com for the person who is attractive but doesnt want to work for a living and wants to leach off another person?

    Hey, Fox News used The Onion as a legitimate source, don't knock The Onion!

    (on a side note, The Onion hardcover book is good for countless laughs - wife bought it for her sister for Christmas)

    When I was in High School, I worked for a small store. There was a couple that would come in 2 or 3 times a week. They both looked very athletic. They were almost perfect looking. They both had blond hair and blue eyes. For a while, I thought they were Ken and Barbie brought to life from the movie Weird Science. Before I graduated from High School, they had a kid. It was a nice looking kid also.

    Not to be a shallow person or anything but if I was in great shape I would want a woman to be in great shape as well. After all being fit is always in style.

    I see them giving their customers what they want. I guess they don't want to lower the bar of standards.:dunno:

    Life isn't fair, is it?

    I like the idea. They should have high standards. That's why they get paid.
