The owners of the online community BeautifulPeople.com have been forced to apologise to around thirty thousand people who were apparently admitted to the site by mistake and then to rectify this were banned from the site for not being good looking enough, or alternatively being too ugly for a site with the name of BeautifulPeople.com.
Prospective member have to pass a rigorous rating system in order to get in, clearly there is no point in me applying then! However, this screening process was brought to its knees by the aptly named “Shrek” virus; this allowed anyone to join regardless of how they looked.
According to the Managing Director Greg Hodge;
“We got suspicious when tens of thousands of new members were accepted over a six-week period, many of whom were no oil painting. We responded immediately, repairing the damage from the Shrek virus and putting every new member back into the rating module for a legitimate and democratic vote. The result is that we have lost over 30,000 recent members. We have sincere regret for the unfortunate people who were wrongly admitted to the site and who believed, albeit for a short while, that they were beautiful.”
The origin of the Shrek virus is believed to have come from one of those five and half million rejects from all around the world, the site currently has a membership of 700,000 beautiful people and anyone is allowed to join, so long as they are willing to take the test, well are you?
