    Mike is downloading stuff on people? That'd be ironic wouldn't it.

    Depends what area of his site/s you go to?

    Man, would I be LIVID if I saw that on my site. I don't give a crap that they sold out to another company. They should have your phone number and/or email address. Let them email you instead of changing the functionality of your site for who knows how long.

    Imagine if Mike had a actual online retail store. How much credibility would he have with his customer with something like that popping up?

    I would let Customer Support have it come Mon am.

    That would be reason enough for me to leave instantly. If I fail to pay my current host, they contact me to ask what is going on - not get my attention in this fashion.

    Time to switch Mike.

    ok just checked it out becuase I couldn't believe it. Now I believe it!

    Hey Mike,

    Tough one to swallow buddy. I would hate to see you change a host that has served you well all these years but you need to give some feedback to whoever implemented this AND their manager. Sheeesh

    That is terrible, they can't do that!

    That's harrassment!

    Well I will point them to this thread and show the wanks the PR damage some bean counter came up with as ABW represents a huge domain hosting pool. Used to be a local Metro Detroit company with a 24/7 call to Developerschoice staff since 1997. Wham ...buy out by Domainhost.com and you guys are correct. Friggin popup alert banner on a sight that banns popups yelling to the world something is amiss here.

    Auto responder to the e-mail support group is all you get. Phone call gets standard voice message to call back monday 9-5. You guys all rush on out and sign up with them for 20.00/month Unix Frontpage hosting and enjoy all the benefits.

    There's more way to skin this cat then normal channels. Needless to say some CEO got his ears rung by a personal phone call at his home. Gorrilla extortion Popup should be gone by now...
