An apology to the LET community, a plead for forgiveness, and a start of a new beginning.
After the barrage of threads about us recently on LowEndTalk and vpsBoard, I have been going through emotional distress, trying to fight a battle within myself on my personal ethics and morality. I have realized now that my past actions have caused a lot of trouble, anger, and hatred from people in the community and I have decided that it is time for me to open my eyes to reality and come clean to everything.
I want to start by saying that I owe everyone here an apology. Through my actions and through my words, I realize now that I have been arrogant, rude, egotistical, greedy, and disrespectful. Everyone that I have encountered has every single right to be angry with me for my actions, and the things that I have did, and I could not express in words right now how disappointed I am at myself and how much I feel like dirt. I had things going well for me, and once had the respect of many hosting industry pioneers, such as Aldryic, Martin, and Skylar, and I went down the wrong path with my greed for low end market share, power, and money. I foolishly decided to hide behind marketing tactics and superiors, and realize now that I was in the wrong, and that I am to blame. I wanted mass expansion, I wanted growth, I wanted market share, but it was not until when things started collapsing on me did I realize that the path I was going on wasn't the right path to go on.
What a lot of people have said about me on several threads on this forum and several threads on the other forum are right. I was a crazy lunatic that didn't know what he was doing. With my attempts at concealment, I have hurt my colleagues, our community, and most of all, our beloved and valued customers. I want to make a change. I want to turn our company and our reputation around, and cleanse the dirt on our name. I don't want to continue going on the path that I have been going on, I want to turn around and make the turn to go on the right path. There will be no more lies, no more overloading, no more mass overselling, and no more disrespect. We will start alleviating the conditions on our nodes by deploying additional nodes of spreading across VMs that have been congested into a single node, and we will start doing this as soon as possible. We will also be addressing and handling the situation with srv3 as soon as possible by deploying new pure SSD servers and offering clients a free upgrade to move over, along with generous compensations. I realize and understand now that our profits are not the most valuable assets to our company; our customers are. And in order to sustain a successful business, we need to focus on what matters most, our customers.
What is on a lot of people's minds right about about us is the Facebook picture that is being circulated around. I want to come clean, I don't wish to hide anything any more and I want a fresh start. The profile picture posted in that previous thread that is being circulated is a picture that was taken from my Facebook profile in 2013 that I posted at the early age of 15. Nearly two years ago when I co founded GreenValueHost, I had a vision to create one of the best hosting companies in existence. My vision began being blurred and driven by greed and it led to disastrous results in which I could have never imagined. I truly, truly love the hosting industry and have a true passion for the field of technology, and I honestly do love this place. I love hosting and I always want to be right here in the hosting industry, and nowhere else. I have a very wonderful team of staff, colleagues, and friends that I have met throughout my journey to help me through this, and I will always value and appreciate everything that they have done for me thus far and everything that they will continue to do as time continues to pass by to the future.
As much as it seems the opposite to most people right now, deep down I have no bad intentions and I wish for the best for everyone, especially members of the community and our clients. I am writing this thread to ask you, the members of this dear community, and any of our clients that may be reading this, for your dear mercy and forgiveness to accept my sincere apology and to forgive me for the horrible mistakes that I have made. I understand that some people still may be skeptical reading this, and I understand. I understand that the mistakes that I have made have made dreadful wounds, and that it will take time before I will be able to heal them. I am going to work towards not only improving our services, but our morals and ethical values, and hope that one day we will be able to shine bright with a clean name. This will be the start of a beginning for both GreenValueHost and myself, and right now I just want nothing but to put our profits aside and work on building towards a better future.
