    What a let down of a thread...

    No idea if Afrihost is cancelling him as a client and thus deactivated his service or if there is some technical issue. Thor is not being specific just posted in here to get the attention of the reps. I would love to know the story here. Doubt it will ever come out...

    If emails and twitter and phone calls goes unanswered trust me a PM will not solve this problem, especially if that PM goes a little something like this: "Hi <InsertUserName>. I'll escalate your ticket with our team immediately. ^<insertBotName>"

    So you create a thread in order to force them to address your issue?
