I can't comment on Lyle's particular case as he may have perfectly valid reasons for his decisions (I haven't read all of the thread), but since I work at the same company as Smylers (up until the time my BBC job kicks in), I can agree with the general sentiment.
I can't even begin to tell you how many times customers have complained that they're losing "thousands of pounds a day" when they shell out for the cheapest hosting package they can find and then get upset when they find out *why* it's the cheapest hosting package. These customers get exactly what they've paid for.
