Is it wrong to make fun of people who post pictures on the internet?

I have pictures which can be found if you are desperate and needy enough to find them, so go ahead if you feel the need to do so, but this thread is concerning those who open up their ugliness to a global audience then complain when those images are used in a less than savoury way.

Should we respect human frailties and pretend an ugly hom is a hunky stud just because he had the nerve to post on the interweb, or do we look at those who post their pictures on the web and expect no comeback and laugh at them?

What is your take on this?

If you don't want to be offended by this type of crap... WHY WOULD YOU POST YOUR PICTURE ON THE INTERNET IN THE FIRST PLACE? AzH your cool dude. Don't let these people who don't understand the internet get to you.

I hate to sound like a "omg gf wuz better back den" fag, but now would be the time to.

Back in the old days people dished out crap to each other all the time, including what would be considered now to be major harassment. If you couldn't handle it, then too bad, cause deep down everyone know it was all in good fun anyway. Now you can't get away with shit, and it kind of sucks...many a good person has fallen due to the rules tightening up.

tl;dr : Lighten up.

QFT. Even though that may be the case though, I doubt you should actually make fun of people because you think they are ugly. They may not be your ideal definition of beautiful but that doesn't give you the right to put them down like animals just because they don't appeal to you. As for the beautiful (or ugly) person in question, beauty (or ugliness) is in the eye of the beholder. It's an opinion and nobody really cares about those unless they actually have some sort of impactful implication. And for that matter, it becomes so trivial that nobody should even give a shit as to what others think they look like. And to relate this to the abuser, it's the abuser's opinion so it doesn't really matter what you think unless that person being ugly actually did something.

We can't really know that unless the person who started the joke actually comes out at some point, decide that everybody has had enough and say that it was just a joke. At least when you sound serious about like wanting someone to die. Otherwise, if it's some joke like "yo mama" jokes or something, then I guess it would be different.

If I think someone is ugly it is because they are fucking ugly.

No, I don't believe it is wrong to make fun of them and it is to be expected to happen, but you have to keep it within some sort of limits. Using someones pictures as an avatar the way you do does seem sort of mean and creepy.

Well you can think what you want. I couldn't really care less how good or how ugly someone is as long as I can do the dealings I have to do with them.

either but if they are stupid enough to put their picture on the internet they are opening themselves up to public scrutiny and ridicule.

Meh, I suppose so. I think everybody is being stupid in that case, though, and it should be expected and the entire matter avoided. That I guess can only be done by not putting your picture.
