I'm very attractive. I know this because people regulary stop in the street and and stare at me (sometimes pointing) and why else would they be looking? However some of you out there might not know whether you're attractive or not and if this is the case hortornot.com is the answer to your prayers.

Have you ever sat in a park on a sunny day rating passers by out of ten for looks? No? er neither have I. Ha ha yes I've got much better things to do with my time as well. Moving on then, the concept of the website that I'm so miserably attempting to offer my opinion upon is simple. Lots of photographs of people. Girls and boys. You then click a button giving them marks out of ten for looks. Next page shows the average mark, how many people have voted, when the ugly fool last checked their score and naturally another picture.

This may not sound like much but believe me its remarkably compelling and if you have nothing better to do its amazing how long you can spend deciding whether a moustache should be a statutory one mark penalty for blokes and two for birds or not.

None of these pictures are pornographic, they contain no nudity and 'fake' photographs of celebrities etc are encouraged to be reported and so removed (somewhat like our beloved Ciao, which by the way is unfair as I do actually look like Brad Pitt). I was pretty much going to conclude here and say what a harmless piece of fun this site is, but there appears to be a darker side of the site I hadn't fully explored.

To become a fully fledged member of hotornot.com you need to enter a user name, password, whether you are male or female and give the URL of the photo you want on the site (here they give a fairly useful warning to be careful of what identifiable personal information is available on the site as it will be on view to anyone who cares to look for it) and then, hey presto you are a honest to God member of the hotornot.com community. As well as an opportunity to put your money where your looks are this status worringly means you can now "meet" other hotornot-ers. I feel I should pause here for dramatic affect and possible sighs of disgust.

That's right, if you see someone that you think is not only a perfect ten but someone you'd like to meet, fall in love with, stalk or be stalked by, then you simply click a box indicating so. If the love of your life feels the same as you after seeing your photo they click the same box and Bob's your uncle. Married in a week tops I imagine.

You've probably worked out that I'm a little scornful of this side of the site. I mean there's no way of assuring that the person who posted the photograph is indeed the person the photograph is of, this brings me nicely to my next point. Stitch up your mates. I don't think I need to go into details but if you know anyone who needs taking down a peg or two (and isn't too sensitive) find a bad photo and start clicking that one out of ten button!

So if you're looking for a mildly amusing distraction I would certainly recommend giving hotornot.com a whirl, if you're looking for love however clicking 'I want to meet you' is probably the first step on a very slippery slope.
