She was called a liar, an attention whore, a fake, a gold digger, and when she asked for a small favor in regards to the contest she's in. She was told not only are we not voting for you, but we will take it a step further and point out whose better than you...AND vote for them instead. I felt that was a slap in her face...



I have mentioned that I felt it might be better for individuals to not vote at all (if not voting for JuicieJennie) unless they would have reasonably found themselves voting in the competition anyway as most people only know about it as a result of JuicieJennie posting about it. However, I still don't see what is wrong with comparing JuicieJennie to the other girls in the beauty pageant given the fact that that is the sole purpose of a beauty pageant. I think that there's a reasonable expectation of being compared to other girls in a beauty pageant if you bring up that you are in a beauty pageant.

Another mitigating factor is the fact that JuicieJennie will need to get in by judge vote as she was doomed (through no fault of her own) by the formatting of the public vote being, "Likes," on Facebook. There's one contestant (Megan White) with 4,291 Likes as of this moment, JJ has 14.

JuicieJennie has publicly stated that she made no serious effort at a Facebook campaign as she didn't realize voting was done this way. In terms of attractiveness, if anyone should look it up, I think it is fair to say that JuicieJennie utterly destroys Megan White.

The problem is the way the public vote works for that competition is fundamentally flawed and skewed to favor individuals who had very active Facebook accounts prior to entering the competition. If you are not such an individual, the only chance you have of winning is to be one of the seven the judges hand-select.

The way the voting should work is someone should have to register a Mint 400 account in order to vote, that way, there's more to the voting than absently clicking on some button on Facebook to the extent that you don't even have to go to the Mint site.

I believe JuicieJennie could very well have kicked @$$ in public voting if the votes had to go through that site and Facebook was otherwise uninvolved. The whole Facebook angle is just a crappy way to do it...

I think it might be a little different if the public voting for the eighth entry to go to Golden Nugget were neck-and-neck and we could be having a realistic impact on who goes and who doesn't. As of right now, we cannot and we do not, Megan White has apparently found a creative way to market herself on Facebook, or has a ton of Friends on Facebook to begin with and is playing to that strength. No other contestant is even close in votes.

You're absolutely right.. There were several awful things said to JJ throughout this thread.

She was called a liar, an attention whore, a fake, a gold digger, and when she asked for a small favor in regards to the contest she's in. She was told not only are we not voting for you, but we will take it a step further and point out whose better than you...AND vote for them instead. I felt that was a slap in her face...

Yet, no bans.

I think it is a shame when people try to objectify women based on physical appearance. My guess is that the username "BrainyBlonde" must have already been taken on Feb 8th, 2011.

I preface this post by saying that I met HB at WoVCon]I[ last year. Not only did I think she looked very nice, but I thought she indeed was very nice.

However, I thought that Roger's "sarcastic" comment was the same kind of sarcasm that Statler and/or Waldorf would have used and then laughed heartily about. Haven't they made plenty of cutting comments about the lovely Miss Piggy?

Guess the forum rules are continuously being revised without announcement.

I'm so sorry you were suspended over this nonsense, Roger. You are an excellent contributor to this site. To show my support for you, I will not post until your return. Back to the drooling board, everyone.



Completely agree. I will also not post until Roger is back. Worst banning of all time on this site, and not even close. Roger was simply AGREEING WITH THE SAME STATEMENT HB MADE! A statement which is obvious, by the way, considering JJ is a professional model.

I'm probably worse at basketball than LeBron James.

If someone quotes that and agrees, he'll be suspended?

See you all till Roger is unbanned.

Yes, total uncalled for ban -- she opened the door, he walked through it. Light-hearted ribbing is the way I took it.

I'm a bit confused.

When an attractive female posts provocative pictures of herself, solicits entries in a facebook contest, and puts herself in the middle of a sexual encounter, comments and debate are off the table, as long as she sticks around?



JJ, keep posting, I won't bother you anymore. I'm sorry if I caused you distress.



I doubt if you are really sorry. You obviously don't like her and what she represents. Your posts have made that crystal clear. But we will see about 'not bothering her' anymore.

And the answer to the first question is yes.

No. But I think there is a different standard in life.



Anyone who doesn't agree with this does not live in the real world.

The reaction of both JJ and HB were inevitable, first with the unwarranted comments of the bulk of male posters, and all the attention that was given to JJ. HB was the main "woman" of the forum(no offense babs or any other female posters, she was more about the attention and less about the gaming aspects, but this is just my subjective opinion from what I have read) until JJ came along and stole some thunder. Humans like attention, male or female, and when someone garners attention from another, the other wants it back.
