Hot girl makes GB users act different?

  What fascinates me more then that fact that a girl posted sexy photos of herself on a video game website is the way the community has reacted to the photos. When I was reading the 600+ posts in Ms_Chivios last blog post about how she might upload "suggestive" pictures of herself I couldn't help but notice that some users were really acting different. Some people felt the need to really suck up to her while others chose to ridicule her about her decision to post the pictures while others just chose to post some funny perverted joke. I myself acted a bit strange to, instead of commenting on her photos when she posted them I chose to post the technical aspects of the pictures. I'm not really the nervous type but I guess it just feels weird commenting on hot pictures of someone on giant bomb, I thought facebook was the only place for that type of stuff.

While this thread is going to end up being unnecessary flamebait...even though I can genuinely tell that's not your purpose... 
 
I think all of my opinions can be found in her blog posts and such. 
 
Personally, I'm down for talking to anybody, regardless of looks or anything.  I think it's pretty ridiculous how many of the folks are acting in those threads and blogs.  I hold doubt solely because this is the internet and the behavior exhibited to this point is suspect in my own eyes.  While I'm not a mod and therefore have little to no authority on the manner, I am a member of the GB community and therefore will call into question something like this. 
 
As I said before, if the user is who they say they are, then cool.  I'll move on about my business.  However, we've been fooled before in order for someone to get some cheap laughs.

Holy crap... The only thing that changes on these forums is a million people make a million threads discussing the other thread in question. It's a girl people, albeit a very pretty one. No need to post these threads.

I think of it like the South Park episode Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society.  Its a perfect summation of what happens when a girl is on the internet.

Oh man DualReaver posts in that thread why do you do this to me :(
Posted by crusader8463

This just in, men act differently when they think they might get sex! Of course they did, they think they are talking to a girl and some small part of them thinks they need to act differently. That is why most real women online don't let on that they are because they wont get treated the same way. And that's why a lot of men pretend to be girls online because they can get special treatment.
 
Put your dicks back in your pants and stop fapping, its a person on the internet your not gonna get laid.

Excuse me, sir.  Everyone knows that there are no girls on the internet.
Posted by buzz_killington

We have quite a few female users on the site. No one asks Fallen-something or JackiJinx if they're a dude, because they don't post suggestive photos of themselves or have their first blog reach 20+ pages and then locked. Her blog getting that many comments is just further proof that we are all JUVENILES here, not a single exception. 
 
And this all seems very familiar...

Well for one she wasn't hot and second I thought the whole thing was tongue in cheek. Then again I was really only reading Bliff's awesomely lame jokes in that thread and posted some pictures of myself (wink wink).

Posted by Metric_Outlaw

Lol I agree, I hate guys like that (except on giantbomb, you guys dont suck). The ones who when any girl starts talking they fall in love.

 The reason why I think it is real is because she says the photographer is still a student and I can see some pretty major mistakes with the photography, especially on the third picture.

This is what happens on the interwebs. They somehow think that they can get "closer" to her by giving praise to whatever it is she's doing. Also, throughout the ages, women have been known to make men do things they otherwise wouldn't. And you know, that whole "sex sells" thing.

@Wolverine: And the reason I doubt it is I could pull photos of any user on my MySpace friend pages and post them up here and claim to be someone different.  =  / 
 
All I have to say is "ItalyCanadian".  If you don't know what that means...then you won't understand.

I remember ItalyCanadian. I always had a feel that she was a guy when she was pretending not to be one. I don't know she just, I mean he just didn't seem like a girl.

Yall had to know I would see this sooner or later.  I don't see what the big deal is.  I honestly don't see what the big fucking deal is.  Jakob over here and half of the Giant Bomb community do not believe I am who I am.  I mean what the fuck kind of place is this that doesn't trust people.  I don't know that all of you are who you say you are.  Maybe you are all chimpanzees or robots or something and not human beings.  I can understand that some of you have had a bad experience with some punk kid on the internet who is pretending to be someone they aren't for shits and giggles, but here's the thing.  Automatically going to and saying that a person is not who they are just because of some bullshit experience drives people away and poisons a community.  What you are all doing is juvenile and immature.  Grow the fuck up. 
 
@RsistncE:  At least have the balls to call me ugly to my face instead of going to three or four other topics to say it coward.

To be fair, she did look pretty good in those photos ; ) 
 
But really, the reaction has been laughably ridiculous, and I can't help but think it would have been different only months ago. The number of users on the site has increased by quite a bit lately, and I think most of the problems are coming from newer members.

Ignore them. This is the internet and most of us men are stupid. Plus there was this whole ItalyCanadian incident where a guy pretended to be a girl on this site a while ago. Shocking I know. For the record, Rsistnce has to be insane or have poor taste, because I think you're fucking gorgeous. But like I said, internet.
Posted by AndrewB

Mix internet teens with the thought that girls use the internet (which, if you're frequenting only the darkest depths of the internet, I can understand why you might be missing them), and you'll have a ravenous swarm of hormones and mixed emotions. They'll get all the attention at the cost of swarms of people hitting on them non-stop and compliments on every word they utter. Or they'll get torn down, like the person this blog post is obviously directed at did.

Totally. Even though she looks a little slippery if we all chase her at once there's no chance she can get away.

I didn't mean intellectually, but it's well known that men plus internet anonymity equals stupid. And I'm not desperate like you as to consider a compliment to a girl as sucking up. We'll talk more when your a little bit older, maybe a bit wiser.

Right. Did you read back what you even said... ? Do you think I care what someone over the internet thinks of me. Especially one who can't take the time to spell out the word "please" or form a coherent sentence. And that assumption is based on the fact that he created a thread basically saying "oh people are sucking up to her, stop" which is a childish action. Even if he is an older fellow, he still acts like a child, creating pointless threads. What started as a simple, "hey guys, what do you  think of these pictures" thread digressed into a "oh my god a girl on the internet" and "oh you guys are sucking up to the girl in the internet" and so on. True stupidity reared its head.

When you said you'd talk more when he was a little bit older, I had no idea you meant 30 seconds older.
