MilesWeb deceitful practices, dishonest provider

jarjar Provider

I promised them that I would do this as a way to thank them for actually taking the time to request that we unban them for shilling for themselves. Upon doing so, they helped me to identify their attempt at ban evasion and continued shilling:

Highly recommend MilesWeb as a provider to avoid.

    I mean while you're correct I highly doubt they will take the time and money to sue.

    @Jarland - nice work finding them out. A bit of name and shame is some nice justice to see.

  • "is scam" is a meme around here I thought. Usually it means the company did fine and it's the poster who's scamming. Maybe not this time, but that's what makes it funny.

    Got it, but that wouldn't fly if you'd be taken to court over it.

    I don't mind, it doesn't bother me, I just figured it's good to remind of the basics in case it would get out of control and they'd be angry enough to do something about it :-).

    Well that's his opinion. If he wants to say they are scam, well he can, joke or serious as long as it doesn't violate any rules. To be fair the most it could happen is that their lawyer issue a letter requesting an "action desist" or some other sophisticated term to just say, warning: shut up or we take it to court. Which well... again...if the provider is from India and the guy from Panama, yeah you know, nothing will happen. Even if he is in the USA. But don't take my word, I just wanted to add another reply, upping the counter.

  • Well if he was shilling, that is scam.

    #lexit spread the word.

  • If you really wanted to hurt them, you'd let them continue to post only to replace all links they post with a rickroll.

    I like my uptime down low and my servers all hacked. Can see me droppin' twenty-fours with a router in the rack.
    Ya like ya Switch-Ports hot and ya servers all hacked. If ya pings real high and ya networks pitch black.

    Shilling is dishonest advertising, but it's not a scam.

    It is a scam because shilling behind a fake account is hiding the pecuniary interest in the commentary. The service itself might not be a scam; the comments are.

    It's an indian based hosting provider with majority of it's customers being fake cloth stores, online drug stores and black hat seo.. what did you expect?

    Ohh.. and they advertise in wjunction.

  • Well done @jarland.

    My favourite prime number is 42. - \forall cpu in {intel, amd, arm}: cpu->speed -= cpu->speed/100 x irandom(15, 30) | state := hacked

  • Okay. According to the Oxford dictionary, scamming refers to:


    @Nekki I'm not disagreeing with you, but lying = fraud? Whether it be a fake review, or self promotion, MilesWeb is being dishonest. One could say that it is scamming, or not, but regardless, they're lying, which is why @jarland suggested against using them.

  • I'm not going to argue about the words, suffice to say we have a lot of them and I believe in using the most accurate ones.

    Fucking about with the English language is why the word 'literally' officially means 'figuratively' now. Makes me sick.

    There's a whole bundle of disasters in that particular song, but I think Ms Morissette has been rewarded by having her career fall rapidly off a cliff after Jagged Little Pill.

    A little ironic, I really do think.

  • For a moment there, I thought this was commentary on their service.

    Admittedly intended. Sometimes I feel like things we deal with that aren't obvious to the members here should be made obvious. I could, perhaps, word it more professionally though. It makes me so mad when people try to use dishonest and shady marketing tactics here.

  • Looks like this case just got.... jarlanded....

    My comments are mine and mine alone, and do not reflect the opinion of my business

  • I can literally see they did nothing to hide their shilling. It's too easy to spot the comments and know that they're heavily shilling.

  • I could, perhaps

    I would. Promoting/spamming at [niche relevant forum] is going to be par for the course for any competitive industry and has been for yonks. Seems a bit of a low ball to insinuate it to be something more than that. Some providers are better than others though I'm sure there's a hint of a correlation between how they conduct themselves in public and how well they perform. I suppose if you want to take the leap, better to be absolutely sure you know they're the owner and... not a competitor for instance.

    I can be sure of that. Do appreciate the advice. I will consider a more tame approach next time of merely presenting the facts without clear judgement.

    I've found the most effective approach is to have the functionality where no one but them can see their posts. It takes them a long time to figure out their words aren't being noticed and the realisation of their spent energy investment is a nice deterrent...

    I understand where you're coming from though. It seems like the karmic response... this is your place :)

  • ricardo said: functionality where no one but them can see their posts.

    That's called ghosting or shadowbanning and they figure it out after a while. Sometimes they even use bots to check for it automatically.
