    This was posted by Chris Holland on DNuk the other day

    ______________________

    Hi folks. Ronnie is currently in the United States pulling 24 hour shifts at Harvard Medical School. I understand people's frustration at the detagged forum being temporarily offline due to a database corruption and Ronnie has assured me that he will fix it as soon as he gets a couple of hours sleep. The DropCatcher system is completely unaffected and continues to catch names aplenty!

    The detagged forum is of course a completely free public service provided on a "best efforts" basis. It is not a paid service with an SLA and when I received an outraged email yesterday berating me for the "disgraceful downtime" of the forum it really was a bit silly!

    The detagged forum will return shortly!

    Thats good news i suppose, but arnt all forums free public services?, never heard of a pay per post forum :)

    If a website / company has a forum, then if the forum is down for an unacceptable amount of time then surely it doesnt reflect well on that company, people are bound to get a bit fraustrated... although i wouldnt go as far as writing an outraged email :)))

    well i think, if you cant fix a problem to a forum you run as soon as it happens then you might as well give up :)

    I've been trying to get a nameserver change for a domain caught by dropcatcher over the past few days with no success.

    Can anyone tell me which is the most likely email address that I would have success with please.
