God these people are fucking clowns. I was going to put off on this migration but it seems now I have no options.

Digital Ocean is now my current bet. Alternatively, I have a more expensive host in the Netherlands that I can use. Discuss.

Edit: We're moving to a french company. HON HON HON TBH

That's a pretty fucking good question. It'd be real nice if their cease and desist letter actually included anything. This is reminiscent of the Stripe cancellation letter I got that said nothing and refused to say anything.
the edgelords at SC made a ticket so i would assume its CYBER BULLYING that triggered Rich from the Trust & Safety team

Looks like the kids over at SC actually got through to Linode.

That's because your members have come in here and spammed pointless shit, unfortunately. You're perfectly free to do the same with your forums, so as Timon said, that's kind of on you.
Oh look, we ban your shitposters....and your members attempt to get our site pulled. Really guys?
