100% Tier-1 Gogent
Geez Mao, just geez!BuyVM is sinking without my help. When they started this trying to prove their network is stellar and there is only the moral motivation they call people names for, they were at their height, the zenith, 90% of LET firmly believed they have a legendary quality, every second thread was hijacked for praising BuyVM, were out of stock permanently.
Then Aldryic decided to go in a shit throwing campaign... The rest is history. They are now out of 2 more datacenters (not that they had none before EGI, every DC was rotten), Joel screwed them up big time (but, again who is to blame, who handed him the keys to give an air of legitimity to their shilling ?).
They are now attacking their competition trying blackmail with hacking threats. While everyone considers that is a legitimate course of action in revenge to my proofs that their network sucks, it is not so and many people will realise that after he will put it in practice. I am sure Prometeus will not press charges for the blackmail, but after he will do the actual damage, we will have another chapter in this saga.
Everyone should note I offered an elegant exit, they will appologise to the third party and do a service to the community by disclosing the exploit. They want to go on and use it, fine, even if we will suffer, that guy must be stopped somehow so he can no longer threaten anyone. He doesnt have anything to gain from it, the people hurt by the exploit wont run to BuyVM, nor will Salvatore fire me, he will do it just to prove he can be an ass which we already know by now.
"BuyVM is sinking" --- I don't think they are. They are doing better than probably ever. Ignore their stock control and the jokes around that. Fact is NJ has been strong for them - great facility at Choopa/Reliable. Plus note their big investment in SSDs, storage nodes, etc.
"90% of LET firmly believed they have a legendary quality" --- ehh maybe in years past. Buy got slapped for being so long in Cali with subpar throttled to death network. I know because I was there and smacked by it and not thrilled. LET is more rounded with other providers who have stepped up their quality a bit compared to years past. Time and practice for some, others are new to the industry/new companies offering.
"They are now attacking their competition trying blackmail with hacking threats." - not quite.
I read the messages before they were made public. Fran threw a sharp funny poke your way with room for it to be read as a threat or a kick in the scrotum to Solus. I'll 100000% put my faith behind Fran and Buy to not engage in such. Likewise, I'd put just as much in Prometeus to not do the same or turn this into some oddness around that jab.
Fact is, Prometeus wasn't hacked and Fran didn't mean such to be inflated like this.
"not press charges for the blackmail" --- no ONE NO ONE NO ONE is blackmailing anyone. Bad idea and get it out of your brain now before it grows in size.
"Aldryic decided to go in a shit throwing campaign" - Fuck Ald. That guy isn't someone I want to be debating with on wishy washy stuff. Odds are he spent some time not on the debate team but in some gov ops program being taught to make normal folks feel less than worthy. I like and respect Ald, but he can pour some words out that leave you feeling beat up at times.
"do a service to the community by disclosing the exploit." --- if there is some exploit and there are bound to be 100 more for Solus, Fran isn't the person to ask until after the damage happened and people start talking/asking about the exploit. Fran is a friend to many providers in this industry. That's where and why he shows up often early to the fire scenes. Calling him the arsonist, well, look, he isn't it.
[quoute], was LET really such a shit-hole in the past that someone who is simply annoying would be banned?
