I think the issue here is not so much what happened, but how it happened. The phishing problem was originally reported to godaddy and then passed on to nectar on 1/9 (a Monday). It also appears the nectar folks resolved the problem on the same day. After that point godaddy continued to receive complains about the same problem and rather than checking to see if the problem still existed, they just assumed it did. Nectar appears to have even responded to godaddy stating that the problem had already been resolved long before service was cut. IMHO the big issue is that service was cut on a Friday night just as the only folks empowered to resolve the situation have left for the weekend. I can see cutting service during a weekday morning to get the client's attention on the matter. Doing it at a time when you know you'll be causing a long term outage is just plain nasty. HTH, Chris
