    Not that anyone is surprised or anything.

    Odd thing is they are still selling them.



  • What is really odd is that the company is still around at all.


  • Service Provider

    Someone posted about this is the "What are you doing now?" thread just before I went to bed last night. I think it is that they are discontinuing the old products and forcing people to either go with the new one or to choose now and be stuck or something like that. It was a really weird email message.



  • My servers are still running even after I got a full refund months ago.....

    If that was a chargeback/paypal forced refund that's technically stealing and companies can (and have) sued to get money for the time you used before.



  • @Jason That seems like a bit much.

    Regardless, I am not using the servers for anything anyways.

    No different than a cabling company suing to get back pay from someone when they forget to disconnect the service to the customer.



  • @Jason You think they are going to sue me all the way over here in Russia?

    Only stealing if he uses them. If they have been ignored and CloudatCost is using them, that's their own concern.

    Actually that seems like a bit much. I can see back charging for something like webhosting VPS hosting when it's quite clear the purchaser is still using them... but cable - How do you prove they were using it?

    It IS different than that, completely. That's not stealing in any way and because it isn't the government had to write laws specific to the case because theft laws did not cover it. Cable companies pumping signal into your house is not stealing if you do not cause it. That's like saying watching normal over the air television is stealing. Or that looking at people walking down the sidewalk is stealing. It's not, it's just RF signals in your home that you observe. Stealing implies you take, not it is given.

    Actually it's still a crime. Cable companes can detect which devices are watching, heck even some the newer stuff will report the Model # of it.

    Here is the difference the government is in bed with the cable companies. They have never even heard of [email protected] Saying someone is going to get sued over a VPS is a bit extreme.

    [email protected] has their heads so far up their ass that they have no clue anyway. Even if they did decide to try to sue, it would get thrown out immediately once they say all the PayPal charge backs and complaints.

    Did I say it wasn't a crime? I very carefully explained that it WAS a crime, but only because they wrote a new kind of law to make it so because it isn't on its own.

    Yeah, notice the "passive theft" wording makes it only about cable services - because it is in no way theft.


  • Service Provider

    @68biscayne you need to read the threads about CloudatCost. You would never, ever use them no matter what BS they feed you in their email ads if you were aware of the situation.

    Cause if it was someone leaving $5 in my house would be theft.

    Again, nothing like that. You can try all you want to support cable companies but it is super clear that no normal concept of theft applies to a company running a cable into your house and pumping unrequested material into it. Under normal laws, if the government was not providing special cases, you could sue the cable company for putting things in your house without your permission. Like adult channels. They don't have the right to force that into a home. I've had them put it on my antenna before. Claim all you want that changing channels is stealing but that's just lying. Cable companies only get to consider this a crime because of corruption.

    There is zero stealing involved if something is being pumped into your house without your authority or request. I'm not talking about splicing lines or anything, I'm talking about the cable company doing it.

    I've had cable forced into my home and sometimes you can't even know it is cable. If you can't know it is a crime, you know you are dealing with corruption.

    @Jason said:

    If you force money into my house, have no way to give it back, make it clear that it is your money and force it over time over and over into my hands but have no means to return it and...

    See how completely struggling you are to come up with something "theft like" to make it a crime?

    If I move into a new house and there is a $5 bill in it, by law, that money is mine, actually. So even in your unrelated, contrived example, it isn't theft.

    Is this really a crime? $5 is left on your counter and you see it but don't touch it... suddenly you are committing theft?

    Even if you touch it. Remember with cable theft you don't necessarily know that there is a cable involved, don't know who the provider is, did not let them in your house, etc.

    If stealing cable is a crime, does providing cable to be stolen constitute breaking and entering?
