    I had an issue today with a crappy shared hosting server I have. It hosts all the sites I use to experiment with.

    Today they were all down, resources were 'exhausted'. Turns out my hosting company thinks googles bots are attacking it.

    some people just are not cut out for this.

    LiquidWeb. Move to LiquidWeb. They at least know how to write a solid sentence in their support chats. No more "You need to configure robot.txt file with the help of SEO experts which will you in future".

    I'm using namecheap to host quite a lot of my low volume sites, one of the reason is that live support is available within 30 seconds.

    Matt Cutts definitely saw that tweet you sent him bro. It was all over YT. He gave you the middle finger and vowed to get revenge on you.
