BREAKING: LAST POST PARTIALLY INOPERATIVE, LIEBERMAN CAMPAIGN DUMBER THAN PREVIOUSLY THOUGHT
THIS JUST IN: TOTALLY NON-CRAPPY WEB HOSTING COMPANY WANTS TO SUE US:
Hello, this is Kerry Szeps, owner of 2Dog Media, LLC. We have been notified of the false statements on the front page of your website regarding our business. These statements are false and damaging. 2Dog Media, LLC has not hosted the joe2006.com website for over 3 months. When the site was hosted with us, it was on a dedicated server with unlimited bandwidth and daily server back-ups. The Lieberman Campaign was paying much more than $7 a month for this service. The campaign manager, Sean Smith, came on board and decided he would rather work with a friend of his that he had worked with in the past. Since then, our company has not been in charge of the hosting services.
Our lawyers have been notified and are requesting a number to contact the owners of Wonkette.com. Please send us this information.
What this means: Sean Smith/Lieberman ditched a (hypothetically) competent web hosting service to go with a cheap, easily crashed one owned by a buddy. Cost-cutting or cronyism, it's still idiotic. Thankfully, they've switched to a reputable and family-friendly alternative.
