Ever notice how many questions pop up on forums that could be easily googled by the person posting?

Ever notice how many questions are answered by someone cutting and pasting the Google search?

Asker-accepted answers cost $2 to $200. Google retained 25% of the researcher's reward and a 50 cent fee per question. In addition to the Researcher’s fees, a client who was satisfied with the answer could also leave a tip of up to $100. In late November 2006, Google reported that it planned to permanently shut down the service, and it was fully closed to new activity by late December 2006, although its archives remain available.[1][2]



Whoops! I copied and pasted my google answer, damn.
