Hmmm, that's an interesting idea, Vill. Would definitely be a good experiment to test.

Work slowed down enough I get to type in here!

Hey Midori!

I'm with Vill on the 'portions of the internet actively seek brains rather than beauty of an avatar'. I actually met my lady through an MMO when we got talking and I posed a thought experiment of mine to her (actually, the one I just threw on my intro thread... it's my favorite for a reason). She has had the best answer of anyone I've posed it to so far, which piqued my curiosity...

I'm up for being a "test person" too, think it's worth examining.  ;)

No, just thought I'd give the guys (and myself) a break from having to PM me all the time... saying how hot my avi is... ::)

Wow I didn't realise it was becoming that much of problem, must have been a lot of pms!  :-(

But, like you said Shewolf, it's probably not necessary. I was more lamenting the fact that -- where something like a writing site should be an intellectual haven -- the shortcomings of corporeal judgments still manage to interfere.

Oh come on, who doesn't want to be the hot chick or the buff guy everyone wants to do.
I guess here people can escape, taking on any shape or form they like. And ofcourse it is bound to mostly look like what the majority gets fed on tv... I mean your avi was the bad guy of a very popular series, and I can't say I didn't drool over him. :P

Jack my dear, you can PM me any time. ;)

I guess in a sense I'm as guilty as the next man... I've been considering potential avatars... Tossing up between taking one of myself or using Benedict Cumberbach...

The thought of using a picture of myself never once crossed my mind. I selected mine because of the feel of photo.

Yeah, I get that people want to be associated with attractive bodies. I just find the notion of people inherently associating a super model with the writer behind the screen disappointing. I realize not everyone does this, but I think we'd be lying to ourselves if there wasn't at least a subconscious conclusion drawn that they were actually sending a PM to someone hot. All I'm saying is: why approach someone based on their avatar when their thoughts are laid bare for the whole site to read? Physical attraction is the only thing we have to determine whether or not we approach someone at a bar. So, of course, when we get to a literal forum of interaction where there is an intellectual alternative: we still opt for the half naked hot chick.

All you need in life is the last minute, coffee, duct tape, and WD-40. With all that, the impossible becomes merely improbable, which just means it'll take you a bit longer than normal.

Also: So what do you do if the writer behind the avi is actually that hot in real life? Just a question.

Now it's a bit of both though. You'd go to the own with an attractive avatar and that knows how to write, not going only for pretty avatars.

I consider it both a blessing and a curse that the internet is as anonymous as it is. Occasionally I'm in a mood to try and break that anonymity, at least as far as throwing myself out there goes.
