LET, is it worth going back?

So LET is back, but is it worth going back to it? I don't really follow/care about the colocrossing stuff I haven't been around long enough to know/care.

The only thing that draws me back to it is the amount of providers that do post on it & the community, although I stick with one provider for all my VPS needs (UrPad)...

Far as I'm concerned, that 'community' went to shit quite awhile ago - hence why I only posted a couple times a year.  Probably a decent enough place if you don't care about the subterfuge or constant bickering - but my advice to providers would be avoiding LET itself (just post to LEB if you must) to avoid having your own reputation stained just by association.

I can see where you are coming from as a provider, but as a user it's normally about the best deal with the best company and reading the reviews on said companies.

I don't even think the new owners of urpad are on LE* are they?

Really, you'll see more providers come around these parts in time. With the upgrades CC rolled out it actually shows that the LET community really isn't all that big content wise.

There is ~9k threads total and most of them are topped up with meme pictures.

I've seen maybe a handful of meme images on here. Maybe it's just that the format of the forums doesn't promote it where as LE's did.

I've enjoyed the discussions on here so far and I think many others have too. 

LE* became a business venture soon after Joel took over. At this point it has been whored around due to how the advertisers were treated. I have countless people that advertised on LET that have come forward stating that the number of ads has nearly doubled on the forums from

the original 17 to about 30, all the while the amount of hits more or less chopped in half and the cost of the ads went up $30. 

Many providers that rely on CC's pricing to live will stay there because it's a chance for them to get some more exposure where as ones that 

have built in other locations will be more inclined to look at other forums.

I don't about you guys but I will miss Pubcrowler vs CVps drama :(. People trying to reveal this and that.

Hopefully now, since we all know who is doing what on LEN, people will bring in less drama. However, I do see an issue with increasing number of CC exclusive hosts which might backfire, since people will be getting the exact same thing on same network and same hardware but under different names which will eventually kill peoples interest..

I will be there just as well as I am here and on other places. Don't see any reason for not going in there unless Biloh gives 3rd party people access to communications which were supposed to be confidential in between 1st and 2nd party.

Totally unrelated, I just warned myself on this forum.  

Back on topic...

I have just grown tired of everything that is "LET".  It's grown to be such a... I don't know.  I just can't stand it at the moment.

Hear hear! People have one foot in vpsboard and the other in LET. The latter has become a shithole so people need to make up their minds on whether they want to help this community grow or ride the shitwave that is LET. In order for that to occur, we'll have to stop with the CC hate train and try to display some maturity.

I guess this is what happens when you leave things half eaten.

Opinions are opinions. When mnpeep posted that his negative ChicagoVPS review was deleted within minutes last month, nail in the coffin and there's not an opinion to be had. Combine that with the fact that as soon as a host (EndOfReality) leaves colocrossing they're banned and their history stripped from both sites.


Any statement that the content can be valued is either adorably naive or motivated by some strange allegiance to the new management.


That simply is the way that it is.

Well, I"ve personally have left LET completely...  This could change if they get better.

That pubcrowler sure told folks the truth about who ran LE*.

I think he'll reappear on the talk site to dump more in the future, and be banned like usual.

No more contents left for him to talk about. CC owns LEB and Chris and Jon are friend from daycare center. Everything has been revealed :(. No more popcorn. I lost money on my popcorn stock hoping price would go up. But Nooo.Some one has to hack and ruin everything.

Word is, there is more grime on CC.

Popcorn stock, gee, corn has ballooned in price over the past 7 years.  400% increase (although down currently in commodity market to about a 2x increase).

If I recall correctly, I remembered that a growing percentage of the corn produced in the US is now being used towards Bio diesel.

I think this latest hack/restore solved this for me.  I think either someone took over my LET account or they've banned me.  I can't log in anymore and it won't reset my password.

Wrong.   That's some crazy spin I haven't figured out who is doing.  Probably the petrol cartel.

Corn, even with last years drought is record or near annual record production in the US for a number of years.   

Last decade has been massive boom and investment in TONS of silage (silo storage) for corn.

At least a decade of corn demand in silos around the US.

Elsewhere in the world, unsure.

Sorry to say, but lots of folks are going to be suffering from account issues over there on LET.  Far from over.
