I for one think so. Especially because of the past history of the threads and when you go through them it's the same 10 people talking about how great the service is and that they are going to buy another package!!! Nobody gets this excited over a web host.
My shared hosting plan was about to renew in a week and I was trying to find a decent VPS to switch to since I kept maxing out the CPU 20 times a day, so I was pretty excited to find one with better specs for half of what I was paying. Maybe you don't get excited about hosting, but I don't think it's fair to say that no one does. Maybe some of the people were shills...I don't know, but I do know that I'm a real human who had never heard of SlickDeals OR urlhasbeenblocked before I followed a link to that thread.
