Humanity, eh?   A complex species full of emotion, contradiction and mystery.   Right?   Right?!!!

Not so, according to Peeple, a new app that lets you rate people from 1 to 5 stars.   A bit like TripAdvisor, but actually reducing the human experience to a score between 1 and 5.

Cyber-bullying ahoy, I reckon.

 That is about the lamest bit of programming I've ever seen...I doubt if it will ever see light of day outside of Essex.

There used to be a Facebook app called Compare People, which was similar, but a lot more expansive when asking people to make comparisons.     Who is kinder?  Who has the prettiest eyes?  That sort of thing.   I remember being concerned enough about that (my eyes ARE the prettiest, goddammit!) but at least there, you'd lose on some stuff but win on others.

This just seems a tad reductive.   Judge an entire person from 1 to 5.

FFS I am now going to have to employ a PR firm to set up thousands of fake accounts to make sure my ratings stay high.

I dunno if I even need that many options. I would've been ok voting ppl thumb up or thumbdown. I.e. when HOT OR NOT was a thing, I only ever used to rate ppl as 1 or 10. There is no inbetween with us, ur either hot, or ur not. Except i.e. if someone was really bad then I would give them a sympathy 10.

In anycase it is not so much the rating that is good bout this, it is doing the reviews like on Amazon. I can deffo see this causing aggro when i start writing reviews on ppl critiquing their method of eating asparagus* or whatever.

 Why not simply give the one you're presently using a wider mandate than "FFS, just make sure people know I'm not CB Fry"?

Ha was going to post this last night. Honestly, this is one of the most terrifying use of apps/t'internet I have heard of. 

 

Sorry friends, I love you all. But it really is time to burn the internet. We as a species just cannot be trusted with nice things.

Stunning lack of irony here, from the creators of the app.

Yep, the creators of an app where people write about/rate other people without their input are upset someone wrote about their (shitty) app without their input.

 

Sorry for the link. I still can't post pictures here. 

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Thanks for the laugh, that's a stunning misjudgement on their part. I'm left with no choice but to conclude that this is their first time venturing online.

Love it.

 

Where's Barry?

 

tongue-out

 

Shall I post something sensible or just continue to laugh at the stupidity of the human race (and commercialism, etc)?

 It's also pretty easy to conclude they are a couple of vacuous, fuckwits that after after their 15 minutes.
