Not that I would care, but I never get any derogatory comments or low ratings.

But as an FYI, you can disable ratings/comments for your pics.

Is bemusement and curiousity not sufficient cause?! :-) I suppose I could attempt to rile myself up a bit if that seems more appropriate :-P

Hello,
When I first started using this website I might have given a 2 or 3 rating to random pictures because for some reason I thought that will take me to the second or third picture of the user! I was obviously not familiar with the site. It just happened twice I think.
Maybe that's what happened.

Happens..... comes with the territory. Consider it a compliment.

I have gotten some very nice motivational ones as well. Take the good with the bad.

And yes....you just have to laugh sometimes......I have had some crazy ones from some women. Only a few....but downright nuts.

On another note.....I think a lot of the "2" ratings happen by accident as well. When you look at the gallery photos, I think a lot of people mistake the rating scale for page number. They click the number "2" thinking that they will go to the next page. (at least that is my assumption). I have had several "2"'s from what did not look like troll's. I figured it might be an honest mistake.

Good comments,

I agree- it can be fun reading the comments- I've got a pretty thick skin ( and it's not from living in Australia! ) anyway, so it doesn't worry me.

Nothing wrong with a thread that explores the psychology of people- they are often some of the more interesting ones...

Oh come on now! Some people may actually think you are a "2". just sayin'























Especially with those calves!

They're haters, there's lots of reasons why people are haters. Who cares, most ( if not all ) haters have personal issues. Personally, haters do nothing but motivate me.

You sure they're haters?
Maybe they're pansy azz phaggots and you're being motivated by pansy azz phaggots.
That's not really good imo.

I'd rather watch Dr. Oz than be motivated by pansy azz phaggots.

I give IC's threads a ten for his beard.

Just sayin'...

Really OP, you had to start a thread just to find out that the Interwebz is full of jealous, somewhat unbalanced individuals who have to tear others down to make themselves feel better about their useless little lives?

I could have told you that in less than two sentences. Oh, wait, I just did.

FWIW, keep up the good work, you look fine, and in the long run, you'll have yourself as your harshest critic. At the end of the day, that's all you have.

I thought this might be the issue, thanks for clearing this up for me.

OP, Back when I was 207 I had a PM from a guy, "Walt, where did you park the RV?" I think I spit out some coffee on my desk. Trolls can sometimes bring the lulz.

If you don't want your pictures rated then don't post them or disable the ratings feature.

"lol" at the additional crappy ratings, I definitely asked for it by starting this thread!

It is true that we, ourselves, are our biggest critics - anyone who has made even a little progress knows that they can change themselves, and so it becomes part of the process to figure out the next thing to change. This requires looking at oneself with a critical eye.

I wonder - does there ever come a time when you stop trying to improve? does anyone ever look in the mirror and think "yep, that'll do - i'll just maintain that"?

You can also request to have your bodyspace disabled entirely. Helps keep the creepers away.
