True... I wonder if that's more of a pain now, since they started logging domains as part of preventing double-tapping the promo codes.
I don't know if the way they coded it would let him off the hook, since he obviously didn't use one if he paid the setup fee, or if they'd have to let him back in manually. I guess it depends if they're monitoring all cancel/rejoin customers, or just the ones that used promo codes their first time around.
Even if it's just targeting promo code users... it's just a matter of time before they have to tweak it to catch the people that cancel & renew every 96 days.
Save up to $96 at Dreamhost with ALMOST97 promo code (I get $1).
Or save $97 with THEFULL97.
