First, it's "unprofessional and lacking in business acumen" for someone to criticize their customers to their face. As one manager taught me, "The customer may not always be right, but they're never wrong." Second, it's their own damn fault for not maintaining their contact information properly in public databases. If the only option they leave you is to post to NANOG, because they don't respond to (or even accept) direct requests to the listed contacts, then that's what you have to do. Many companies are guilty of the latter, and we all get the benefit of seeing the state of their customer service for reference when making future buying decisions. Very few are arrogant enough to do the former, though.
