This is a parody, right? I'm looking around the site for the punchline and I can't seem to find it. Unless it's the "unlimited bandwidth?" Ack, no thanks. Even an oil-and-coal-fire-powered web host couldn't possibly offer unlimited bandwidth.

And on their TOS scroll down to "bandwidth":

"Sustainable Host reserves the right to charge $3 per additional 1000MB of bandwidth when client goes over his monthly-allocated bandwidth limit."

So if I go 1GB over infinity, they charge me?!

Doesn't look like a parody to me. It seems more like a scam. There is no such thing as "unlimited bandwidth". Sooner or later, they'll charge you extra or kick you out once you go over the "real" data transfer "limit" of your "unlimited" package.

THis idea was probably not born in Seattle.

Give 'em a break. Just about every shared web host claims unlimited bandwidth for those small accounts that hardly ever ever ever get near even a quarter of a gig of bandwidth usage. Sounds like forward thinking to me.

Only when we have nothing to say do we say anything at all.
