I had two gripes with Force9, but they were fine otherwise.  The 
first gripe was that their news service was a joke.  I think that was 
a pretty well known fact at the time (just over a year ago).  The 
second gripe was that they happily dropped test equipment on the live 
paid-for network and denied it afterwards.

Strangely enough, my reasons for leaving Demon and later Force 9 were 
due to ``technicians'' blatantly lying to me.  <rant>I can't stand it 
when people with egos larger than they can handle are allowed to talk 
to the customer.  If they're good, stick them in a dark room in front 
of a computer and feed them with coffee, but don't let them talk to 
the user :*]</rant>
