Bye bye to the fat 5,000
As if the first Monday of January isn't hard enough, 5,000 former members of BeautifulPeople.com woke up today to find they have been turfed off the world's most lookist website.
Their crime was to have piled on the pounds over the festive period. Which isn't a hard thing to do, when you imagine how many slices of yule log, mountains of Christmas cake and gallons of mulled wine we consume to celebrate.
This mercinary culling has provoked mixed reactions on every media platform. We're pleased to see that twitter is rife with reactions, with lively debate off the back of articles written on BBC.co.uk and the Washington Post.
