Hi there ...
My name is Matt and wanted to here your thoughts about an issue to do with a website I very recently developed - http://www.london2012rentmyhouse.com
A little background.....
Sydney homeowners saw the 2000 Olympics as a profitable opportunity in terms of letting their private properties, this also helped house the millions looking for somewhere to stay.
My site addresses both these issues by providing a means to post an advert to let your property, and an easy to use search facility to search through the adverts and find a place to stay during the london 2012 games.
The BBC contacted me recently about the site and we did an article - which can be viewed at
it comes on after 10 mins.
The Olympic committee legal team have since contacted me to take the site down and have basically used bullying tactics to remove the site. I am 100% behind the 2012 Games, they know this, and my site is there to help an issue which will surely be a problem in 2012.
I would be interested to hear your comments. One of london-se1 regular users saw the report on BBC London television and contacted me urging me to seek your thoughts and comments on this.
I feel my site will be extemely effective in the long run and will help serve the local residents as well as the visitors to the city in 2012.
