    Lance, this is a terrific article.

    I buy lots of domain names through GoDaddy. Every time I do that I get the same feeling that you do. I guess I could buy at Hostgator or other places, but like so many, I hate change. ;)

    Yeah, I agree 100% with your examples…it seems almost deceptive when companies try too hard to hit their revenue goals…Vistaprint is a company that I have used for years (they have low cost printing products) but the ALWAYS try much too hard for the up sale…

    Really nicely written, and great illustrations.

    Given the expertise of these two companies, we can assume that these “mistakes” are not mistakes at all, but attempts to get people to upgrade, buy more than they need, etc. Sigh.
