MySpace cheeses me off

It’s killing me how often a crucial feature of MySpace is offline. Two weekends ago, their whole system went down because of an L.A.-area blackout. It’s understandable, although a service so large should be prepared for such eventualities.

Tonight, their log-in is disabled.

It’s frustrating. If it’s not the log-in, the search is down or it’s a specific user’s profile.

I would be careful if I were MySpace. Users may be willing to forgive some things, but these sporadic and all-too-frequent outages can be a massive turnoff.
