That's priceless. Let's just face it: this website is to trash their exes. I don't see anything really beneficial coming from this site. If their point was to mentally and emotionally wound men, they achieved their goal.

It's basically there to artificially trash any guy on facebook using a few mouse clicks, if a certain group of girls don't like the way you look or act, they will artificially shape your future and reputation what concerns dating and women to their personal (dis)liking, regardless of anything else.

It's up to the smart women to not take anything of that lulucrap seriously when they see it on guys profiles.

Perhaps a sh***y rating might be a quest to them to really find out objectively if that rating was accurate or not.

It's the same legal principal of the public domain, you have no expectation of privacy in the public domain. You can't put your profile up online then claim it's private.

If you had a true private profile, you might have something to stand on though,

I think you're missing the point. Sure, Facebook has many flaws and privacy issues, but it wasnt created with the intent of bashing a gender and slandering others. I'm not saying it doesn't happen. You're also not rating people on Facebook. I never claimed that every profile was private.

Well, Facebook started with the similar idea actually. Didn't you guys watch the movie?

Wikipedia wrote:
Zuckerberg wrote a program called Facemash on October 28, 2003 while attending Harvard as a sophomore. According to The Harvard Crimson, the site was comparable to Hot or Not and "used photos compiled from the online facebooks of nine houses, placing two next to each other at a time and asking users to choose the 'hotter' person"

To accomplish this, Zuckerberg hacked into protected areas of Harvard's computer network and copied private dormitory ID images. Harvard did not have a student "Facebook" (a directory with photos and basic information) at the time, although individual houses had been issuing their own paper facebooks since the mid-1980s. Facemash attracted 450 visitors and 22,000 photo-views in its first four hours online.

Similar idea, yes. But that's not what it is anymore. Do you think this will also happen to Lulu? It will become a hugely popular website? I can't say for sure.

Actually Zuckerberg is what first appeared in my mind when I checked lulu, I don't recall the facemash detail though.

Just researched and found it. He did use people's private information without their knowledge. I guess it is similar, except Lulu is only focusing on men, not both genders.

A HisCockSize or GirlTalkAboutCock site would be a lucrative idea.
