    Question What act did you hate the most?

    Hi,
    Just asking what act that a company did to their own services that you hated the most.
    Personally I hate when:
    1. NameCheap.com and NameDemo.com stopped giving away free domains.
    2. When MSN stopped their free chat service. Now you have to get something to pay for it.

    Can you blame them? They are businesses not charities.

    The act I probably got most pissed off about is the incident with VeriSign interferring with the root nameservers.

    They have banner ads all over them though. I could see NameCheap and NameDemo but not MSN.

    Numerous sites that changed their model and went from free access to subscription.

    Without Namedemo, I never would've gotten into the web.... I started Monkeyz.net with it (looong time ago). I pointed it to a forum and got over 35,000 posts on that forum. A success, especially for a first website. Too bad I hadn't know about ads, hosting it on your own server, and all that stuff. I'd be rich!

    racingpost went from free to 10 per month which was very annoying at the time, after a couple of years it went back to free which it still is now aprt from downloads.

    I believe he means NameZero.

    Oh, and before I forget, that forum with 35,000 posts? No advertising at all.
