I am inclined to agree.  I am not a fan of Interland.

Will their support improve because we are dealing with someone higher
up?  I have no reason to say that it wouldn't, but every time I have dealt
with them in the past, it has been frustrating, if not downright
infuriating, with their poor support and technical know-how.

That, and they gave ColdFusion users the shaft when they tripled the
monthly price on us with little warning.  So, no, I don't particularly care
for their business practices either.

So, that's my take: I wouldn't want to inflict that on others, even to
support a cause I like. -1
