Copyscape has been down for 3 days now I emailed copyscape saying I was unhappy (to say the least) about their problems. I also said I thought a free batch of searches would be appropriate given their service is not free and they cannot provide it now. I have received the 200 extra free searches- Im sure I wouldnt have if I hadn't have asked. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and tell them how angry you are you and that you demand a free batch of searches and you may get them. Its only $10- but for the sake of an email, why not.
