    I had an account from '02 that I was never able to re-gain access to after losing an old ISP-based email account when that ISP account got cancelled years ago so now I'm a newb on my circa 2006 account.

    WHT banned me for making a second account after forgetting about/losing access to a long lost account. Now they won't respond to my helpdesk emails. I hate WHT, I really hope that this site can grow.

    They're usually keen on helping out people regain access to lost accounts...

    I've emailed twice, usually just get an accusation of lying, or no reply at all. I've been completely truthful and and more than pleasant.

    VPS board naturally lost some momentum from being down for a while, but I like it being a low volume but high quality forum.

    The problem is that there seem to be a lot of slightly spammy threads: a new member asks for recommendations, or recommends a particular host, followed by other recommendations, comments and likes from other new members. It is hard to tell who is genuine and who is spamming without looking at their message histories.

    There are also a lot of short and useless comments from new members.
