Black Lotus supports spammers
For several months now I've been receiving 10-20 messages per day that bypass all spam filters. The mail is clearly spam and clearly in violation of the CAN-SPAM Act. The headers contain false information, and the "unsubscribe" addresses contained in the email do not work. Black Lotus Communications are the hosts for these companies sending the spam and have done nothing, after months of complaints, to stop the spam. I believe that a significant portion of their profits comes from these companies that are violating the law.

They host hate sites
BlackLotus hosts hate sites like I refuse to do business with any company who considers garbage like that to be acceptable content and those who would create it as being acceptable customers. I urge others to do the same.

Horrible Service. Scammed me of over $500. They claim you need 'plan upgrades' every time you get attacked. This is classic bait and switch scam made down to a slick fine art. These people will take your money and hold your data hostage. Do not go near them!

At the turn of the century, distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks were not part of the dialogue within information security circles.

This is the worst company I have ever dealt with. They scammed me out of $5,000. STAY FAR AWAY! I signed up and it started fine until the first attack, the next thing I know I'm calling for support because my site is down. They hang up on me! This company is horrible.
