I did mark it as off-topic and you came in and did nothing but made a
personal attack on me (and after the thread had otherwise died a natural
death).   If you consider it whining (which is defined as anything you
don't want to hear) then you have one very small option in the matter,
ignore the thread! (which was already dead and nearly buried anyways)
Instead you added *ABSOLUTELY* nothing to the discussion except for
personal attacks on me.

Again if you had been bothered to read you would seen the primary questions
(which were answered early in the thread to my level of satisfaction) had
to deal with firewalls, ssh, vpn's and database backups (not a single one
*DIRECTLY* related to hosting per se).

You are reading into things that are not there.   I agreed with everyone
who said that *IF* the hosting company *STARTED* to enforce its new policy
on us we were SOL.  I never disagreed or complained about such answers.  A
good part of the thread was taken up by a side tracked discussion on
general security theory and not my situation per se.  Perhaps that is where
you are misreading my comments since I was disagreeing with what some
people considered to be "best practices" (in theory) as being good
practices at all.
