+ - British domain registrar offers "no transfer fees", charges transfer fee->

Submitted by RealSurreal
RealSurreal (620564) writes "British web host 123-reg, which previously advertised "no hidden transfer fees" has angered customers by introducing a £12 fee per domain for transfers out. Best of all, they didn't bother to tell anyone they were doing it relying instead on terms and conditions which say : "123-reg reserves the right to change, add, subtract or in way alter these Conditions without the prior consent of the Client.""

+ - Should we remove all MS ads here?

Submitted by Invert314
Invert314 (920939) writes "Is it time for Slashdot to ban all Microsoft ads for Ballmer's evil business ethics? Slashdot two weeks ago firmly established a consensus counter to Microsoft's behaviour. Each member of the Slashdot community asserted a unique swath of reasons to explain our love for FOSS and our hate for Microsoft. So now let's act accordingly. Perhaps Slashdot can consider permanently removing all Microsoft Office/Windows/Exchange Server ads on the grounds that we simply do not like the way Ballmer manages his company and treats competitors unfairly.

We can lead by example for other news networks to follow. Perhaps CNet, TheInquirer, OSNews and TomsHardware can also consider excluding propaganda from a corporation which has engaged itself in aggressive and perhaps secretive unjust anti-trust campaigns over the years.

Senior management at Microsoft should be extremely worried that educated Computer Science Majors and Engineers share the same sentiments as the Slashdot community."

How can you work when the system's so crowded?
