Reading through many of the PYSpeed threads, it seems shadiness is prevalent in their business practice. It seems they try to see what they can get away with. When called out, *that* is when they do the right thing, which IMO is too late. A well run business should do the right thing *from* the beginning, and not try and see what they can squeeze out of a prospective client, be called out on that, and then post publicly a solution which should have been offered before all the back and forth that happened prior to said unhappy client posting a negative feedback thread.
And I agree with you, only after one conducts due diligence. A simple ban on a forum does not tell you anything about the sponsor, other than that the forum and the sponsor had a disagreement. It does not attribute fault one way or the other.
As I stated, I have no dog in the fight, and I am not vouching for other side. All I am saying is that you can't simply say PYSpeed is in the wrong simply because it was banned.
