Re: Colosseum Online Inc. review
said by Guspaz:Reputable is so subjective. Even TSI for a lot of people would be considered fly-by-night too. All the other independents and CLECs are very much a mixed bag too.
The point is that you have a pattern of signing up with fly-by-night companies and then inevitably being upset when they implode or fail to provide decent service. If you would just start out with a reputable company to begin with, you wouldn't be changing providers every other month.

said by Guspaz:I think the word(s) you are both looking for are:
TSI isn't fly-by-night by definition, since they've been in business for 14 years...
disreputable, disgraceful, dishonorable, ignominious, infamous, louche, notorious, opprobrious, shady, shameful, shoddy, shy, unrespectable.
They even use an internet service provider as an example in the link. Very similar to the No refund issues for the low quality (or non-service) we see.
So take you pick of one of those words to describe them.
But fly-by-night works just as well since in infers a company who takes your money and gives you nothing in return... kind of like getting a 2-meg service when you were sold a 30-meg service.
So the definition kinda fits them.
