The other 30,000 were purged from the site, which refunded over 0,000 in membership fees.The breakdown of people deemed too "ugly" to join were: USA: 11,924; UK: 3,156; Brazil: 2,911; France: 2,340; Canada: 1,220; Germany: 1,205; Australia: 1,093; Japan: 998; Russia: 840; Denmark: 470."We have sincere regret for the unfortunate people who were wrongly admitted to the site and who believed, albeit for a short while, that they were beautiful.Beautiful, which allows only visually attractive people to join, has reportedly suffered an online 'virus attack,' allowing 35,000 ugly people to sign on in search of love.

Beautiful, whose main offices are in Denmark, boasts over 700,000 members from 190 countries around the world.

When asked if the premise for the website was promoting superficiality, Hodge had no qualms acknowledging that the dating website is indeed for attractive people."It's not political correct to say but it's very honest.

The free website, which boasts more than 800,000 users, first launched in Denmark 2002 and took off in the U.

We gave the power to the members to let them define beauty in a very democratic way," Hodge told CP.

Rejects of the site are notified by email that members of Beautiful did not find their profile attractive enough.

Speaking to CP, he said that following the virus attack the site set up a helpline staffed with motivational speakers that listen to people who were denied membership vent their "bitter" frustration and anger.

Cluley suggests the whole thing could be a hoax intended to draw attention to the site.
