    Thewebsite is for all those people that find it more convenient to bother you with their question rather than google it for themselves.:hahano:

    It's a funny idea - I can see myself using it!

    A couple of suggestions ;

    The heading says "let me Google that for you" - shouldn't it be "let me Google it for you" ?

    The links at the bottom are dead/ seem pointless.

    I don't get the Tiny URL button - it just hangs at the "Fetching.." stage for me. Is it supposed to do that?

    Isn't this just a rip-off from the site's original creator's??

    Edit : Kayos pipped me to the post on that last line which I was editing in!

    You're not getting my point.

    There's Youtube, Daily Motion, Hulu, and multiple other video sites because video websites are used with high frequency, and these websites are competitors. They program their own material from scratch, and they have their own specialties and features.

    Your clone, on the other hand, is just stealing the work of someone else. I'm on the verge of wondering if this is even legal, as you're plagiarizing someone else's code and script.

    If you want to use the "google video or daily motion" analogy, then think of it this way: It's fine to have a Google Video and Daily Motion, but do we really need two Daily Motions?

    loveispoison, Hi. This is one of the owners of LMGTFY, LLC. You are in direct violation of our copyright. In addition, outright copying code and rebranding it as your own just isn't cool. Be original. Be yourself. Stealing other people's ideas (and implementations) just makes you look like a fool.

    It doesn't totally suck, and it's kind of funny, but i'd add more so it was more awesome.

    @loveispoison - I can't believe your site is still up, after you were warned nicely by the copyright holder.

    Some people aren't lucky enough to receive those nice warnings first, & get hit by legal action straight away. Is that what you're now waiting for?

    I wouldn't if I was you. Even if you aren't concerned by the legal stuff, as has been said to you earlier, "copying code and rebranding it as your own just isn't cool".

    Now you've had your fun, isn't it time to get original?

    Zen-R summed it up very nicely. Although, let me just give you some tips: If you are going to post a site to be reviewed, make sure that there is something to review. If all that your site has is a blank area with a YouTube video inside it, there isn't going to be much to rate. If you just copy code off a site that you don't own, there isn't going to be much to rate.

    That's pushing aside the legal stuff. You really shouldn't do that. :p

    I've been doing some pretty hard work cracking down on loveispoison's copyright infringement on x10Forums - I'm not letting all of x10 get in trouble because of an idiot like him.

    I had a chat with an awesome administrator ( ;) ) and he suspended http://get-vid.co.cc last night (or about 5 in the morning GMT). According to the CO.CC WHOIS lookup of the LMGTFY site, this one is hosted on http://000webhost.com, so there's nothing x10 can do about it immediately.

    http://www.co.cc/whois/whois.php?domain=let-me-google-it-for-you&button=Whois+Lookup

    I guess I could keep up my determination and send an email to http://000webhost.com as well. -falls over in exhaustion-

    Update: I have used the 000WebHost.com Helpdesk to file an Abuse Report. I'll keep you guys updated about the status of my ticket.
