1and1’s latest bullshit excuse

For those following the progress of Internet hosting company 1and1’s email screw up this week, the story has taken a comedic yet not entirely unexpected turn.

Internet Geek news The Register has posted its third installment of the news, where some soon to be ex customers of 1and1 have vented their anger.

The real humour comes however from 1and1 themselves, who have passed off this monumental cock up as nothing more than planned server upgrading and maintenance.

Following an important update to our mail server software and the subsequent restart of the mail servers, there have unfortunately been delays in the delivery of inbound email to your mail boxes.

Now don’t bullshit me guys, I’ve used that excuse to clients before myself (any clients reading this, just kidding!).

Oh yes, honestly, your service has been down all week because we’re improving our service to make things better for you, instead of the truth, some pizza faced twat has spilled his coke in the server room and fucked up all of the hardware.
