    haha, That is a little laugh, wonder if they even know about this forum, or are just attempting to blatantly rip this one off. It'd be somewhat slightly interesting if they really honestly never knew webhostingtalk.com existed.
    I am here. Did you need something boss? I'm just knocking out your tickets and live chats correctly and fast as possible while monitoring the servers and their services and admiring all the blinky cage lights. Just message me if you need any help.

    I think forums like these poor imitations that basically show no originality whatsoever are sad to the extreme.

    They are a waste of time and effort because they always hit the wall and run out of juice sooner rather than later.

    The majority of their members are most likely people banned from here too.

    The overall success of forums apart from membership, really comes down to originality and what they can offer which differs from elsewhere, so as these attributes are missing then it's plainly a matter of time before they burn out.

    Even sadder is the fact that they were most likely started up by persons who are either members in here or were

    Well immitation is said to be the best form of flatery.
    But they are being 'cheeky b***ers' aren't they.

    I did notice this thread:
    ANy One knows where to get best hosting? - replies '0'


    And just for the OP - OWM, did you notice they DO NOT have any SI
    So I gues we will not be losing you to them. - -

    its just blackhat seo stuff. lots of posts here wind up elsewhere, some for good things like web hosting offers, some like these forums just copying content
