Agreed, it's not a linear scale at all, and yeah I'd never rate someone who'd be below a 3 (because that's where "plain" is on my scale, so it's equivalent to your 4) because that would just be mean.
I'd add one extra caveat, which is that a particular look (as in way of presenting oneself, including dress, hair etc.) can have huge impact on whether or not I think someone is attractive. And I don't mean someone having a bad day, just a different style.
Totally. I see a girl done up like a bar hopping slut and she goes down on the scale. Put her in some nice clothes, maybe some dreadlocks (or not, they work for some girls), nice tattoos, punch some holes in her face and fill them with chunks of metal... or not, some girls look great without ink/piercings.
EDIT: I still want to see pics of what some of your tastes are, get posting in the hot girls/boys thread already! Objectifying people is all good as long as it's all in good fun and we're not actually objectifying people literally in our minds.
