It's sad when you've come on this site enough to be on it and even sadder when you enjoy looking at it. Do you ever notice any trends?
- I'm an anomaly. No one writes nearly as many takes male or female and I'm probably the idiot since I'm not getting paid but, hey, I write incredibly fast so it's not too painful for me.
-WAY more girls than guys are mods it seems. I think this is because little girls are rewarded early on in their childhood for being tattletales, (and it's one of the early ways female power is discovered and asserted over physically stronger boys.)
-there's someone on this site who's given over 50,000 opinions. I've had mine for a long time and haven't even given 1000. I don't understand how it's mathmatically possible.
-The TOP GUYS in the past 30 days tend to all be rude and outspoken (one of them is 15 so he gets away with it) while the TOP GIRLS in the past 30 days all tend to be very softspoken in terms of saying outlandish/controversial/offensive things. This is interesting because the opposite of each exists on the site but is clearly not the norm. In this way, GAG actually does reflect our image of real life since boys are thought to be more outspoken and less considerate of others feelings while girls are thought to be sensitive and empathetic to others even at the cost of articulating their true feelings all the time.

i do not pay attention to trends to the extent you do
but now that you mentioned it, i've noticed a couple things at least with respect to the top 10:
*the #2 xper holders for both male and female have been members for a very long time
*among a few of the girls, they've made rank by giving frequent but short opinions1
