Rackspace buys out Slicehost

Andrea‘s going to hate this.

Rackspace buys out Slicehost.  Cool.  Dandy.  Whatever.  Only one little problem.  Rackspace is known for their spam. (Yes, they’re old.  I don’t have time right now to go digging for more up to date links.  First ones I found.  Running out the door.) We have large portions of Rackspace’s IP blocks blocked at our routers due to this since there’s little to no follow up from those folks.

I for one think this is a very bad idea.

  1. You must of been out of the game for a while now. Rackspace hasn’t had a problem with SPAM in years. Compared to most other hosters out there they appear with close to the least amount of complaints and have a much better reputation for resolving complaints when they do arise. Instead of excuses like “I don’t have time” or “I’m running out the door”, try doing you homework.
    I think this acquisition was a pretty smart move for both companies
