    I wouldn’t recommend Comodo to anyone, after the experiences I’ve had in the last 24 hours (lack of communication and bad customer support). More details on my blog…

    Hey Jeremy, I read how much fun you had with Comodo on your blog. I must say, after that, I wouldn’t recommend them either. I probably should have let people know that I didn’t end up going with Comodo anyway.
