    Dear Tripod,

    I have noticed an unusual increase of anger and frustration on my face the last few days. This must be because I continually have my site taken down for no reason. Well, your reason is under the false pretences and acquisitions. I have read your \"terms and conditions\" and have respecively abided by them from the first existence of my account. Instead of shutting my account down, perhaps you should follow the link, and see where it takes you. On that site, you will find NO pornography, NO pirated software, and NO other illegal activities or \"storage spaces\"... Considering the fact that I recieve these emails on a regular basis, I can\'t understand why you say you\'ve noticed an \"unusual increase in bandwith\". Does it not occur to you that my website ALWAYS uses that much bandwith? And not much at that, give me a break! Not only am I having to put up with your slow service to begin with, you shutting my account down doesnt really make my situation any better. Please stop shutting down my account for no reason! THANKS

    So, can \"my lycos team\" finally be a team player?

    --------

    I think it just might work, hah...

    Now i KNOW im not the only one here who hates their webserver host... they\'re up there with telemarketers...
     
  2. Hah, way to fight the machine.

    And whats the web site all about?
     
  3. Try Geocities next.

    They have enough bandwidth for about 5 fucking hits. Bastards.
     
  4. You arn\'t paying them any money. They can do what they want.
     

  5. it actually wasnt a website, just a storage space, haha, but i never had an index file, so it was a dead giveaway. I copied the source code from some other lycos members website and just pasted it into mine, so the link goes to his website, hah..

    and for all you haters, it did work and they sent me a message saying they would re-enable my account...
     
  6. good job grass roots. fight the power *chuck d tone*
     
  7. I hope, for your sake, they\'ll give you a brake.
