rapid response to a spam report....

By Jaqui ·
Took less than an hour for Bravenet to respond to the report this morning.
Definately gives a good impression on them as a hosting company if they react that quickly.

Hey OZ,

by Jaqui In reply to rapid response to a spam ...

did you know that Bravenet is based in Parksville on the island?

I noticed the mailing address when I was reporting the spam message.

Possibly a bot?

by JamesRL In reply to Hey OZ,

I wonder if they are using Brightmail or something similar and have an automated response to keep you out of their hair while they work on it.

Either that or they have way too much time on their hands.

or,

by Jaqui In reply to Possibly a bot?

they really do pay people to be working overnight to handle customer service issues because they want to have a good reputation.

They are much faster at getting a response back than my own host, which takes 4 hours.

since the response wasn't emailed, it was a message with the url to where the "support ticket" is posted as a webpage, it actually isn't likely that it is a bot to buy time.

Nice to hear

by j.lupo In reply to or,

that some companies take pride in their products/services.

yup,

by Jaqui In reply to Nice to hear

it's easy to point to companies that don't care [ they are so common ] that when a company does do it right, it's more effective to point to them, and then let people make up their own minds about their supplier for the same service(s)
