    No...

    I could have bought an appropriate domain name and created a website instead.

    that's OK - to be honest, I couldn't understand why you objected...

    also, it's just not worth creating a web site about those slimeballs

    Probably a website a week for the slimeball / moron hoster of the week?

    Absolutely, there can't be enough of these threads.

    Sort of like the multitude of HostScum that seems to be popping up here in the forums. So, when's your next scam due?

    And do you really think that I give a fat rat's behind what you think?

    We have something in common then since I really do not care what you think.

    As for invoices being sent talk to Mike. He is the one that setup everything on VPSWiz for billing and all that jazz. I am not wanting any money from you, and soon enough that site will be down as well because it will not be renewed.

    And CobraStrike, I can say with quite a bit of certainty, that nobody you ripped off CARES WHAT YOU THINK EITHER.

    So now you're playing the "Blame Game" because you got caught with your hand in the cookie jar? Puh-lease!

    Edit: and maybe you should be spending your time in a more contructive way - like paying attention to your customers (if you have any left) - instead of coming in here, wasting time, and trying to make people feel sorry for ya ('cause it ain't gonna happen!).

    @cobrastrike

    I really am curious as to why you still visit this forum . . . a lot of people know what you guys did, and I don't think anyone has very much respect for you after that.

    Funny Brendan how you say you had no control over VPSWiz, when according to company chat logs, you agreed VPSWiz was a great name.

    Funny how you also messaged me asking me to start marketing VPSWiz as you and Michael had started it as a way to get away from Polysk leaving HostChum.

    Very funny how your not in any management position, or how you created S2K Solutions and did advertisement and hiring from that account.

    And in case you try to deny that was you, Once again when I posted that clients should be careful with a host who barely covers their costs you posted and I paraphrase

    “Josh you know our support is better, we hired an outside organization to do our support”

    Followed by an msn message saying that I am lucky you’re monitoring the thread and not Michael or he would terminate our contracted work. But that you liked me and wouldn’t say anything.

    So how does someone that’s not in management dare say that to me?

    Oh and glad to see the real attitude is coming out of you, that’s in itself is enough to warn possible clients of your ways. As I said many times, you should have taken my advice, your just causing yourself more trouble anymore.

    ** For those who are new to this issue, I am not involved with anything HostChum/VPSWiz. I was hired as an outside party to do marketing and business relations work for them, however ever after not being paid; I stopped working, but maintained presence there to collect information to post to warn users. However I was to slow, they deleted everyone’s files and then failed to make payments. **

    Just in case you want to deny it, and screw these people around more, below is quoted directly out of the chat logs. Do note that I have cut some spots out, as they talk about snow, smoking, and other childish things such as Brett, using a phone spoof to call 911 - Real mature, and they made him a manager !!

    Michael Pearce 4/1/2009 10:58:59 PM

    We need to come up with a new name, we won't be able to use HostChum anymore.

    Michael Pearce 4/1/2009 10:59:08 PM

    We need suggestions on a new company name.

    Michael Pearce 4/1/2009 10:59:46 PM

    Me and Brendan are stuck so we thought we would ask you guys.
    Brett Lowe 4/1/2009 10:59:40 PM

    VPS Hosting Right?

    Brett Lowe 4/1/2009 11:00:07 PM

    Brett Lowe 4/1/2009 11:01:02 PM

    i can buy the domain and i have a Free SSL With 1 LOL
    Brendan McNiff 4/1/2009 11:00:19 PM

    My best idea is VPSWIZ

    Brendan McNiff 4/1/2009 11:00:49 PM

    So.

    Brendan McNiff 4/1/2009 11:00:52 PM

    That is our main focus.

    Brendan McNiff 4/1/2009 11:01:17 PM

    What do you guys think about VPSWIZ ?

    Michael Pearce 4/1/2009 11:00:44 PM

    We aren't just doing VPS Hosting though

    Brendan McNiff 4/1/2009 11:01:23 PM

    Its short, memorable, and available.

    Brendan McNiff 4/1/2009 11:01:57 PM

    VPSWIZ - Your magical source in the hosting industry
    Normally I would never display internal company logs, however with the mix of not being paid for my services and then screwing many WHT members over. I feel its best to show exactly what kind of people they are.

    Hello,

    First off they do not just trace by ip. They have many ways of telling who uses the account. Secondly, unless your saying that you were not the one commenting to my posts here, but you claim you were on msn?

    Must be another one of your delusional claims.

    Oh well, everyone knows the type of people you are. And its further proof now that you’re all trying to invoice these people.

    Why is Hostchum still sending me invoices to pay

    ?

    Biggest mistake i have ever done was go with that company. Is anybody else getting these also in their inbox requiring a paypal payment.

    The nerve of these people.
