Boston University sophomore Justin Doody, who created the website, said that he got the idea ' The Social Network,' a drama about the creation of Facebook.

He expressed amazement at how quickly the RateBU site has gained popularity and media attention.

"I expected some people to find it interesting. I knew it would be a little bit controversial, definitely didn't expect it to take off this fast," quoted him as saying.

"I have had a lot of positive feedback. A lot of people do realise it's just a joke, guys and girls. There are some people that take it kind of extreme but I am honouring take-down requests and I have plans to change the site in the future," he said.

Doody added the site was not meant to be malicious or to hurt anyone.

However, there is a mixed reaction among students.

"I really hate it. I'm really embarrassed that I go to BU because somebody would make that. I can't speak more harshly about it," said Sasha Goodfriend.

Meanwhile student Nate Ashcroft said, "I don't think it would be demeaning."
