Rabbit Hole Recap: Bitcoin Week of 2021.02.22

Gary69 , Australia – Terrible Keep Away – I hold a reseller account and for a year now have had nothing but trouble, I click on CPanel and get redirected to the “adddons” page, I try to access my account directly through CPanel and get rejected I ask for tech help and get no help whatsoever, its been 3 months since the last complaint I started about his and I only get replies like “there are no problems” “its your computer that has problems” yet when I explain to them that I get the same issues no matter what computer I use they keep blaming my end instead of looking at there end. Tech help is useless. NEVER use this host. Nothing but problem after problem.

    I’m so glad we have the government to keep us safe from the evil money launderers.
    I didn’t even realize I was how dangerous is was to allow me to have financial freedom. Fuck the overlords
