Re: Digex and Akamai are raping the ARIN whois database

Ah, I knew this was coming.

For the record:

  Digex.net does not do any sort of web hosting.  Digex.com does not
do any sort of leased line sales.  They're vastly different companies
these days.  You did, however, send your complaint to the correct 
address (digex.com).  Folks, please follow Kai's example, and let
abuse () digex com (and your digex.com salesperson, if you have one)
know exactly what you think of this.

  I'm sure I'm going to hear a lot about this over the next few days,
and I'm hoping that everybody realizes that the digex.net/icix.net
folks have nothing to do with this whatsoever.  I have no idea if
digex.com knew what they were getting into with this.  I hope they
did not.  Please, though, don't harrass/mailbomb us IBI/digex.net 
folks.  We're innocent.  I swear.

  And Kai, I'm sorry our sales force let you down.  I'm more ashamed
to admit you're not the only one.

Nothing like the smell of spam in the morning - coming to you through the
"benevolent" acts of Akamai and Digex - sent to POC handles blatantly stolen
from ARIN's whois database.

Yo, Digex: this just reminds me how much your "sales team" sucked the last
time around, when there was a DS3 contract up for grabs on an RFP.
This spam certainly cuts you out of any future consideration for a while:
You'll find yourself in good company with Savvis, I am sure.
