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>
