Homepage abuse comes in many different forms. The following is a list of abuses that can lead to the termination of a Tripod or Angelfire membership without warning: Remote loading - Using a Tripod or Angelfire Basic account for the sole purpose of storing files for use on another Web site or for backup purposes. MORE Pornography - Displaying content on a Tripod or Angelfire site that may be considered pornographic, including images that depict nudity. MORE SPAM - Using a Tripod or Angelfire account to advertise a product or service via unsolicited bulk e-mail. MORE Piracy - Storing, linking to, or providing the serial number for, copyrighted software. This includes linking to hacking/cracking sites. MORE Hacking - Linking, explaining, or demonstrating how to hack into software or computer systems. MORE Fraud - Collecting information from a visitor by misrepresenting the authenticity of a site.MORE No Banner - Altering a Tripod or Angelfire page to prevent the display of banner ads. Copyright Infringement - Using copyrighted material on a Tripod or Angelfire page without the permission of the owner of the copyright. MORE Invalid File Extentions - All files located in your member directory must have a valid file extension. Files that do not have a file extension will cause the account to be terminated. Examples: Invalid: "my_dog"Valid: "my_dog.html"
Naturally, I did none of this. I tried e-mailing them, with no response. So I said to myself - Lets go to another hosting service. GeoCities looked promising, but guess what - They don't support FTP. Uploading 381 files manually can be a real drag.
Next. Found a different provider - www.greatnow.com. They offer 100MB free, Allow FTP, only problem - You have more ads popping up for each page than you have concealed nuclear weapons in Iraq.
Still - I uploaded the site, all 16.5 Megs of it. Only then did I recieve an e-mail from Tripod:
