Re: Colosseum Online Inc. review

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.

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.

TSI isn't fly-by-night by definition, since they've been in business for 14 years...

I think the word(s) you are both looking for are:
disreputable, disgraceful, dishonorable, ignominious, infamous, louche, notorious, opprobrious, shady, shameful, shoddy, shy, unrespectable.

See: »www.merriam-webster.com/dictiona···eputable

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.
