You know, what you're talking about is really great. How you're talking 
about it is not so great. I was quite excited when I first saw your 
post this morning. Seeing it again this afternoon on a different list 
turned that excitement into disgust, coupled with bewilderment that you 
would post it to a list (CCSF LUG) that has not seen a single post from 
anybody whose name is not Rick Moen in almost _four years_. I might 
have recommended your colo service to several people otherwise. Now, I 
might not. A less gag-inducing method of letting people know about this 
opportunity would have been to put up a web page about it, and register 
it with all the search engines, AND THEN DO NOTHING EXCEPT WAIT.
"Consider that two wrongs never make a right, but that three do."
