I can understand people being upset with the way Tomas has handled both CS and this conversion.
I don't think you should extend that by taking out your frustrations on Greg.
Aside to yumyum-
You asked in a locked thread why I removed my post. Tomas gave the wrong link, and my reply was to that. I thought I had moved them to this thread, but either I didn't, or they were removed, so they are reposted below. I wasn't removing my posting, just moving it to the suggested thread.
Hi BF, I'm glad you just moved it here because I thought it was a well worded post and I didn't want it to go POOF!
I definitely did not even mean to extend anything over to Greg via my terse comments to Tomas, I am sorry if I came across that way.
I was trying to say I would be happier if Tomas wasn't in the picture at all, basically, and that his self imposed gag order this last 6 months or whatever it's been is not going to be made up for by his sudden eager bantering NOW.
Welcome Greg!! sorry I didn't think to use those words earlier, my bad, and I apologize.
Seriously Greg, though, Tomas has alienated and aggravated so many people I suggest you just try to duck when you are in his virtual vicinity and be warned so you don't "get any on ya", if you know what I'm saying?!
I am seeing you as a maybe rescuer, a possible liberator from the ghetto like conditions SD has been deteriorating into. I do hope you have heard what is being said here, and know that you also acquired the nightmare that is the mess he created by failing to deliver any return whatsoever for the added $$ he pickpocketed under false pretenses.
That is, in my opinion fraud, and yes, I realize it costs money to do anything, but we all know this and so does Tomas and it is wrong to have promised us our money would bring rapid improvements and an end to the abandonment we felt back then, to be lied to about a new Beta version that was "nearing completion" all the while knowing that was not true.
There were no improvements being worked on, as he said, nor was this merger close to being a sure thing at the time, according to Tomas last night so what else do you call that but Bullship? And there is nothing to lead me to believe Tomas was using a language that would have been June1/compliant. So I don't see any way to look at his price increase as anything other than deceptive.
It doesn't matter whether he intended to defraud or not, he did not deliver the goods and has not offered any signs of integrity towards compensating us for the inconvenience. Nor outlning when and how he will refund those of us that opt not to stay and wait yet again to be rewarded with future inconvenience of having to learn a new site, and all the joy of our own "data migrations" but without the informed choice of doing so when and to where else we might have done back then if we had known it was inevitable at SD anyhow. He knew, we didn't, he lied.
As someone said, had we even been told that we could look forward to a NEW site altogether for our increased fees in the near future it would have been fine, and not dirty dealing. By continuing to mislead people about the Beta, etc. he cost a whole lotta people time and money unnecessarily that we could have used in productive deciison making at least, not wasted because of Tomas' uncertain path.
He did what was profitable and good and safe for HIS business, while selfishly not considering ours and the time and energy and dollars we could have conserved had he found a safe way of communicating the simplest parts of the plan without divulging any top secret stuff.. Instead, callously watching us bang our heads and scream for help or answers or just ACKNOWLEDGING we existed.
We have endured continually degraded service day by day by month by 5, and we paid double for the privilege to do so on a site that is supposed to help our businesses to thrive, not intentionally leave us twisting in the wind..
So again, welcome Greg! after you get done cleaning up his mess I'm sure all will be smooth and groovy round here in no time, and sorry if my aim was off!,
