Did they get sold or something?

BlueVM_Sales has been spamming WHT tonight with offers in random discussion threads. I thought BlueVM was a regular contributor.

    Doesn't seem like the same person that comments on here, just going off punctuation. It seems like it's someone whose native language isn't english going off the spaces after the punctuation (esp. w/ commas).

  • @kbar said: so he paid someone to do it for him....?

    I doubt it. Could just be some pissed off kid who wants to make it look legit before taking it down? I personally don't know, its all speculation.

  • That would not be a wise decision, letting someone be your image here. I would trust nobody with that, even tho many ppl hate me anyway, it is better to hate me for what I am rather than for what I am not. That being said, I had to cancel BlueVM due to huge stability issues and I still got invoice overdue and suspension notices so I doubt he has the time to properly run the business anymore, which is a shame, I was happy with the service before.

    Who's General Failure, and why is he reading my drive A: ?

    yeah it was pretty good until I had a billing issue and they deleted the wrong VPS, when I brought it to their attention they created a new VPS but in a total different location saying the old location is full?? I mean really!!

    I dont want to be negative in any way shape or form, I just say what happened to me. My VPSes had the bad habit of going down and not coming back for days. Since I use a setup like set and forget except the usual round up of security updates, that was highly annoying and lasted a couple of months. M

    Who's General Failure, and why is he reading my drive A: ?

  • @Maounique: oh well sorry dude.

    @jarland: how is it? I was looking at it and then said... Nahhh... too expensive :P

    @HalfEatenPie Something was wrong with the system he was going to provision me on, getting that sorted so I haven't tried it yet. Their half server though, looks like the real bargain.

  • @jarland: I just got a 1GB KVM from them yesterday. He's waiting for IPs but I'm pretty excited. Gonna use it for my remote desktop :P (I'm getting Windows installed on it)

    Good luck with that, and remember to have a good firewall and remove all unneeded services. M

  • I remember the thread asking if anyone would be interested in these machines a few weeks back, so probably legit. Might get one..

    Pretty impressed with my BlueVM machine, use it as a US DNS machine and secondary mail server in case my first is down. Had no issues at all, except for some firewall issues due to kernel modules being disabled or something.

  • @kbar Yeah I know, but it was the $2/mo special they had on. I decided later on to stick cPanel DNS and Exim, it's been running fine for the past two months with no firewall.

    ur tearing down their Special and putting their reputation at stake by highly inflating the price!! it was $1.99/mo :)

    @halfeatenpie - I agree, they could be trying to pump up our company then proceed to make us look like idiots or to attack our servers.

    -- I wrote the WHT support team this morning with the following:

    Yesterday I found someone posting as "bluevm_sales" on the forums and who ever it is they aren't a part of my company and they do not have authorization to speak for us. I would appreciate it if you would suspend this user and delete all posts by them.

    BlueVM Communications LLC is a business registered out of Colorado, USA and we have authorized no third party to speak in behalf of our company. We are also requesting the IP address and any information related to this person's account so that we can look into filing a legal claim against the individual.

    It's also possible it's just a well-intentioned idiot who doesn't realise they're crapping on BlueVM's reputation by being spammy.

    It would seem someone is spouting rumors about BlueVM too... I logged into IRC and people honestly thought BlueVM was going up for sale and that I had some "massive debt" to pay off. Both of those rumors are untrue. Seriously whoever this is they need to grow up and stop with the crap...

    @Jack - Nothing about bluevm on that page... maybe WHT is already at work cleaning it up (that'd be nice)

    @zhuanyi - Typically they speak poor English which can come off as spammy in nature and typically they ask for discounts on top of an already running special which can be seen as being too cheap in some situations.

    Well, why do we running stuff on LEB? Because we are cheap, Chinese or not we like discount and I do not think it is just the Chinese asking for discount.

    And not speaking good English = Spammy? Dude, I am sorry to tell you that one of every 5 people in this world speaks Chinese and only 1/3 of that number speaks English (as their first language anyways)

    So, I'd suggest you take back your racist attitude and get back to business. That post just shows how arrogant and ignorant you are.

    @zhuanyi It's no secret that spammers are often non-English speakers who live in countries with low labor standards and work for very little money, making China a hotspot for American companies paying them to do their dirty work. So yes, Chinese spammer is a very common thing and they are often the worst because they work for the least.

    So grow some thick skin. It's an English forum. If we didn't speak English here we wouldn't complain about Chinese spammers who speak bad English.

    On a serious note its mostly true even if its not the correct thing to say.

    Wouldn't that make the American the spammer, and the Chinese bloke is just trying to make a living?

    Poor English can appear spammy to an English-language audience, because many spammers don't speak English well or intentionally distort their language to avoid filters. I'd imagine if someone spoke bad Mandarin to a Chinese audience they'd be iffy about it too.

    From the little knowledge I have of China, like many parts of the world there tends to be a culture of bargaining. That can conflict with attitudes in other parts of the world that asking for a discount on something already cheap can be considered pointless or even rude.

    Pointing out an instance of culture clash doesn't seem racist to me.

    Ever heard of birthcontrol? Thats what China and India Been missing for a pretty longtime. Thats what makes the population huge.

    Time is good and also bad. Life is short and that is sad. Dont worry be happy thats my style. No matter what happens i won't lose my smile!
