I always believe that plagiarism is the sincerest form of flattery. If someone copied from you, it means that he/she felt that your idea is good and worth copying. Its a benchmark that says you’ve reach a certain status.
I know Uzyn wasn’t quite happy that someone copied his work. But then, lets face it, in the internet world, copying is everywhere. When a website is successful, someone will try to copy it. Friendster, youtube, myspace, twitter….. they all got their own clones. And I’m happy that ping.sg reach this status.
The only thing sick is that, the copycat has no creativity at all. The entire layout is very similar to ping.sg. Login on the left, most popular on the top and shoutbox on the right. Hello….. at least change the layout abit lah.
But there is one thing about ping.sg that nobody can copy. That is the community. The community in ping.sg is very unique. Everyone is friendly and united. No matter how good you are at copying, there is no way you can create another community as united as ping.sg.
Anyway, thanks to the folks at Vietnam for their compliments. We are greatly honoured.
