Ok, everyone... with 14 hours to go, we have a new leader!!! (after I figured out double voting, reversed votes and surfed through the pictures of two Swedish girls kissing... not that it necessarily made the search unpleasant or anything ).

New tally as of 9:50 a.m. is as follows:

FlyYourKite's Friend: 12 votes
Charlize Theron: 11 votes
Natalie Portman: 11 votes
Elisha Cuthbert: 6 votes
Andrea Corr: 4 votes

It seems that this one will be a nail biter, so do not take anything for granted and vote! (ladies, remember what happened to Constantine in American Idol... ).

We need many more votes today!!! Come on, it is just 5 seconds of your day!

I am also impressed by the speed at which the original "Hottest Chick Around" thread disappeared after it reached 500 posts... You can tell there were certain mods waiting it to hit that mark.

Right, because it would be so sweet to put up pictures of Interference girls and have their faces, bodies, and characters analyzed.

You just don't get it, do you? I'm not about to let LS become an environment where girls read threads and then become depressed, sad, and upset because they think they're not as "pretty" or "thin" as some girls. LS is not your personal playground. It's a place for EVERYONE.

This has gone on long enough, and I think I've been more than understanding. I let your original thread go, I let you post this thread, and I only asked that you refrain from commenting in certain ways in the Octagon Bar threads--I never said you couldn't post there. Part of my job is to try to create an environment where people don't feel judged, where people feel safe and comfortable. A thread like that would definitely work against that goal.

I don't care if you were kidding or not in your last post. I won't let a thread like that happen.

And FYI, *I* didn't close your original thread. Probably KhanadaRhodes did, judging by the time it was closed.

why are no other mods checking u2@nyc for his on going personal remarks towards Pax?

is pax not allowed an opinion, is she not allowed to part-take in discussions because she's a mod? stop playing the mod card on her. it's low. she remarked about someone's suggestion to hold a poll for 'best' interference woman. it's terrible idea, what next? a poll for the ugliest?

these threads are shit and do more damage than fun.

Well I thought it started out as "harmless" enough, I don't read or participate in the bar threads so I don't know anything about that. I didn't mean to offend w/ my participation in this one.

I do see your points about individuals being singled out, honestly that girl's picture being included here freaked me out a little. I know I would never post my picture here for reasons of the scrutiny etc and I don't want my picture on the Internet anyway.

I agree, some "ms interference" whatever it was idea is not a good thing imho. Pretty pictures of celebrities is one thing..other things start to get weird..sorry.

Do we get a prize for being the ugliest? Cause I would make a run for that one.

Ok so I really didn't mean to offend anyone at all with posting in these threads. I'll admit I was a little when U2@NYC moved my pictures himself from the Interference photos thread or wherever they were...but I didn't say anything as I thought the excitement or whatever would die down.

Now that people are getting more and more uncomfortable with this, it's starting to make me feel that way as well. Again, sorry for any offence I may have caused and perhaps the vote's should just be for celebrities or no one at all.

While I am sure there are better ways to spend a day than posting pictures of pretty people, I don't think its fair to call NY 'shallow" (a personal attack I might add).

I could be wrong, but I don't remember NY making this a value thing. He isn't saying that these women are better or more valuable than other people because of the physical features. That would be shallow.

I haven't seen him do that. He is admiring women that he thinks are attractive. Silly? Yes. Shallow? Most likely. But it certainly doesn't give you the right to define his entire personality.

It does give me the right when he made personal remarks towards me in the other "hot chick" thread and is on-going with personal remarks to Pax.

Does it?

If you think he's an idiot (and it seems you do) just ignore him. I appreciate your wanting to stick up for Pax - she seems quite capable on her own.

The old "an eye for an eye"-thing?
Your definition of shallow may not be someone elses, Ewen, I take offense in your statement that someone is shallow when they like to post pix of women they think are cute, it's all in good fun, imo.
At least, it started that way.

Of course it gives me the right. He made personal remarks (twice) directed to me. I did choose, actually, to ignore it the second time. It's his on-going snide remarks towards Pax I am now objecting to.

Yes I'll stick up for Pax, nobody else seems to be. She's apparently got friends here. They all seem to be too chicken shit to say anything in fear of coming across "boring".

1. I didn't say that you had personally closed my thread.

2. The issue with you Pax is that you feel that your judgment is what Interferencers want. I am sorry, but that sounds like a dictatorial approach to me. However, to make things fair, I agree with you that a thread picking the hottest Interferencer would create more trouble than anything else and I was being just ironic in my previous post (my apologies if that did not come out clear). So you know, this issue also came up a couple of years ago and the general consensus of the forum was that a prettiest Interferencer contest was detrimental for the goals of the forum. And I completely agreed with that.

LS has never been my personal playground and I do not intend it to be so. However, please accept that if a "Hottest Chick" thread reaches 500 posts relatively quick and has over 11,000 views in less than a week, there might be a significant amount of Interferencers that enjoy it, as superficial as it may seem to you.

All right...I can't let this thread turn into a flame war, either.

I guess what I'd like to see happen is this: Let this thread run its course, on its original topic. Let whoever wanted to vote, vote. As I said yesterday, I'm not all about closing threads because I have a philosophical disagreement with them.

That said, just because I am a mod doesn't mean I don't maintain a personal viewpoint. I don't like these threads. I let the original thread go because it did not violate any forum policy, just my personal politics, and although I commented strongly to the negative in it, that remains my right.

If this thread can get back on topic, I'll let it go. But I maintain my position on a "Miss Interference" thread...that'll happen when pigs fly.

Thanks.
