Journal: Earthlink is Messed Up

Journal by seanmcelroy

Here's something really messed up. I put a few .XML files on my Earthlink webspace with an XSL stylesheet. Worked beautifully until today. I chatted with support, and they informed me they saw it and removed the content-type mappings to text/xml on the server. I asked why, and they stated if I wanted XML and XSL to work, I would have to pay for a premium hosted account. So I asked, "So, to make sure I understand you, you have misconfigured your servers to ignore the standard, published content-types on purpose unless I pony up more money?"

The answer? "Yes, that is correct." How's that for MESSED UP?!

If builders built buildings the way programmers wrote programs, then the first woodpecker to come along would destroy civilization.

Working...
