Misleading information about Datacenters

Don't you just hate it when you see websites that have misleading information about their datacenters, they are actually taken from other websites. is a good example of this.

It uses a picture from ev1servers (former rackshack) and its details are taken from AboveNET (I think)

I think it makes companys seem really bad.

I don't have a problem with people putting these details on their site, as it is pertinent information.

As long as they keep "our servers at the abovenet facility" are housed blah blah blah, rather than simply the "our facility", then I think it is fine.

Many hosts use pictures to spice up their network pages.

But I agree with Professor, they should not lie and should always state, in text, where they are operating from.
