hotornot <reply> We tend to strongly discourage hot-or-not style discussions about women, as they're known to discourage female geeks from participating in communities. Female participation in geek communities is really low (less than 2% on average :( ), so lets not discourage any more! See also !girls and !women for more information on how to help stop this tragedy. elkbuntu
