Yes, Zing.com could be put to so many better uses.

Do people actually get paid to make these sites? Wow. I thought all the best sites were done for free? How did they survive that long? I'm really thinking of Suck, here. Didn't think cool shiat could really make money. I thought we just did it to make ourselves feel better about sucking the corporate monster most of our lives.

Man, I've pulled some sweet ones from zing over the years.

That ofoto site looks crappy, you can't search for pictures, the owner of the series has to mail you a link (or so I understand). Anyone know of another site like Zing where you can just search through the pictures?

The only ones that come to mind are...

Fugly or Not. You can't really search, but you can get a lot of fugly pictures without being sent links.
It seems to be a direct ripoff of Hot or Not

There is another site where you can actually search for people, but I can't think of it at this moment. I am sure there are many more.

Sgamer- It's not really all that special, except that some people have their pictures there and noplace else. I thought it would be fun for all the photoshoppers to get one last look around there. That's why I suggested it to Drew.

Bummer, I remember grabbing a metric assload of pics from Zing a summer back. Some guy had about 500 or so pics of a bunch of playmates, that made my day.

ImABraveLittleToaster- Let me refer you to the comment I made on July second at 3:53:21 PM.

Is that OK? I thought it would be good to mention to all the photoshoppers that this was their last chance to use zing to steal pics if they had been in the past.
