So. I had a Giganews news server account and one day I was having problems retreiving headers. It would start, and midway through the header refresh, it would just stop. I’d disconnect and reconnect and it did the same thing, even on different groups. So I decided to open a support case from their website. Bad idea. After opening the ticket, I get this email:
We have researched this issue and can not find anything wrong with your unlimited account. It does not appear that we can resolve this issue to your satisfaction. I have instructed the billing department to cancel your account and issue you a refund to your credit card. We regret that we could not reach a better conclusion to this situation.

Did I just get blown off and they canceled my account? Can’t be. I didn’t ask for my account to be cancelled, I just wanted an answer to the problem and if there was a temporary network issue. And actually, that evening the problem went away, then later that night I couldn’t connect at all. So I responded to “Jonathan”.
Jonathan, whatever the problem was seems to have gone away as headers retreive fine now. Also, who said anything about cancelling my account? Is that why I can no longer connect?
Still waiting for a response from Giganews support. Now I use UseNetServer.com. It’s $10 less and just as reliable.
