My last interaction with LunarPages (rant warning)

Ok after the LunarPages fiasco (see Prolurker is back from LunarPages hell (long ranting post warning)) I requested full refunds on both sites, and LunarPages processed the refund for prolurker only. I immediately emailed then that my request was for both sites, a request they again ignored.

Of course I got busy and didn't follow up immediately. So once I was back on my feet from the trip to Germany I again emailed them and requested a full refund for stating that my previous request had been ignored. I got this insightful response:

I have gone ahead and reviewed your account for you. Being as how you are outside of the 30-day window that qualifies for the full money back refund, we will be unable to issue a refund for this cancellation.


If you have any more questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Lunarpages Help Desk again.

Best Regards,

Some review...yes I'm out of the thirty-day period ONLY because your company didn't process my original request for a refund at the time you processed the refund for the other site.

Emails went back and forth, no go...they have policies you know and none of them have the ability to think about the policies they are applying. *sigh* It's scary sad.

So I took my partial refund and walked to the sites online door...goodbye and good riddance. If you are reading this because you found my post via a search engine and are thinking about using LunarPages...Don't. Take your business to DreamHost or another site. Trust me anyone is probably better than these jokers.
