On here, we all know that there is an armada of "How do I look?" "Rate me, plz?" "HOW'S MY ASS?" And from what I've noticed, they never seem to get criticizm, and when I'm blunt about it, I get criticized.
Are you ever actually brutally honest to someone when they don't look good? And do you post How Do I Look questions, knowing that they will all respond good, for feeling good?
Yes, of course! Common courtesy, IDIOT!

No, of course not! Honesty is the best policy, honey!
I just don't answer, haha. I look at the picture, and then I quietly go back to the live feed. I don't think it's bad to be honest, but there is a difference between being honest and just being rude. But even so, unless they put up a little warning or something (like "please be nice"), they should be prepared for rude answers as well, because they literally are asking after all.
That is the worst type of HDIL question for me - I try to find someway of not lying to them without crushing them, it probably turns out as a bland middle of the road answer but hopefully if there is a chance to give constructive criticism I will take it.
Lol, I either don't answer or I tell them the truth. That they are attractive. The only thing is that, while I may not find them attractive, someone else will. So in the end, they are attractive. To someone.
If I have nothing nice to say I don't say anything at all, I just don't answer the question. My opinion on how they look doesn't matter either way, so why say something that's going to make them feel bad about themselves? I won't lie either though.
I usually ignore them. Why do you care what strangers, people you will probably NEVER meet, think of you? Can't you just be confident in yourself, and be YOU and know that NOBODY can be YOU, like YOU? If you love yourself, and are confident in yourself, who cares what strangers think?
Honestly, I take the approach advocated by Thumper's dad and the anonymous user above - "If you can't say something nice, don't say nothing at all". Obviously that's going to skew the results a bit (which is why sites like HotOrNot usually normalize ratings) - but so what? I don't see any harm in letting people feel a bit better about the way they look.
