    This is just pathetic...

    He copied LEB's about page word for word. http://www.lowendbox.com/about/

    • Meh think this site is better. I really dig the forum software here.

    • laaevlaaev Member

      Of course this site (Lowendbox) is better, there's no comparison. Never in a million years will there be competition to LEB, the community here is too strong and unique. Rockbottomhosts looks like a wanna-be and rip off of LEB,coincidentally the owner of LEB and Rockbottomhosts are both named Joel :P

      Not to start a war, but I've seen many competing sites to LEB who never achieved similar success to LEB, I challenge you to find a site that is exactly the same concept (Low End VPS blog under $7) as LEB that is successful. good luck buddy

    • Why would any host want to advertize as a rock bottom host? There is a huge difference between low end and rock bottom

      That was before LEB died. There's plenty of room for something better to pop up now. I for one wouldn't mind seeing a site that actually posts updates and maybe tries to be something more than a billboard. But hey, that's just me.

      That one actually looks good, I like how they list all those details in the post, you can quickly find what you're looking for and tl;dr the rest.

    • thanks, that cheapvpsdeal seems great. I use sometimes this site:
      http://lowendstock.com/

      It is more of a list with no user interaction, but i like the way it lists sites.

      Fairness, I suppose. Pleny of folks have been complaining that setting 'rules' and 'standards' for LEB was unfair/etc. As one user put it,

      it should be our choice if we want to sign up, the admin should post all offers

      But then if they get scammed by the company surely they'll come back and flame LEB for listing it no?

      Oh, I don't advocate that view at all, just reminding folks of what was said. There was quite the outcry over Chief making an attempt to keep known horrible/fraud companies from being able to harm the community further.... nevermind that none of the folks making said outcry actually knew for certain whether or not LEA followed similar practices quietly :P

      Personally, I feel that the content of a site is the decision of the site's owner. Some folks tend to overlook the fact that LEB is a blog that allows commentary... the 'community' is here at LET, where any provider that follows posting guidelines is allowed to put up an offer.

      All new writers posts have to be reviewed by 1 or more of the "old" writers before allowed public viewing.

      As of now there are posts made by the new writers waiting for release. When thats going to happen I dont know.

      Guess all we can do is wait and see... there has been alot happening to LEB/LET that wasn't planned when @Chief took up after LEA. Guess that with all those "accidents", there hasn't been enough hours to a day to make ends meet.

      'Jasper' is who posted the alien one. As far as I've heard from Chief, the new guys don't have auto submitting priv's so Mark/Joe will have to audit & submit their stuff.

      Why not? As I heard on IRC yesterday some more known LET/LEB members which are already their customers (so they are familair with this host performance) even purchased new vps from another location from this offer. It shoud not be you who decide in name of all others what is acceptable for them (or us) and what not.
      Requests like your is are on moments extremely annoying. It's not like AlienVPS would steal our money or something. They provide bottom-end service for bottom-end (in this offer 12$/year) price. It's up to you if you want to pay for this what they give or not and this what you see is just offer introduction and nothing more.

    • lowendcube.com was another site that seems to have a copy/paste of a lot of stuff off of here.

      @Spirit just lol is all I have to say. There's so much on AlienVPS here on LET, especially the whole thing with Joel... they shouldn't be posted on LEB.

      Just like any other host which part of population dislike, correct? Should I add my own list of "crappy" hosts which shouldn't appear here because they did something what displeased me?

      @Spirit said: Just like any other host which part of population dislike, correct?

      So you're saying that nothing is wrong with posting hosts like Hostrail?

      I think the LEB/LET community should protect the less informed visitors (the ones that come on LEB check out a deal, and grab a VPS when they need it, don't stay and interact) from horrible hosts.

    • AldryicAldryic Member
      edited April 2012

      I could go either way on this. On one hand, some folks trust LEB's postings and will go with pretty much any provider listed.

      On the other hand, a more cautious user will read through the commentary.. which aside from being helpful, has been absolutely HILARIOUS for me. The downside, though, is that prospective clients with limited/no understanding of English might not be able to glean this information from the comments on the thread. Plus, there's always griefers that are butthurt over being denied service, and will go to lengths to trash any post by that provider.

      @kairus - So you compare AlienVPS with dead rip off company which stole our money? Sorry but your vague arguments don't convince me. Strange because my IRC bot hosted on AlienVPS box is up and running. Most of the time...

      YES OF COURSE. I partially agree with you here (but I wouldn't use word "protect" nor want to be protected with denying the right to see offer which may interest me). That's why some people use web browser... google, open LEB, WHT... and read comments. LEB is GREAT source of informations but not thanks to your suggested approach.
