Bad Customer Service - Or Just An Ass?

I would like to share a business interaction with you this morning that I just can't seem to get my head around.

A little pretext - We are testing some software that is open source with commercial support. We have purchased the supported version and wanted to ask the vendor about adding support for a certain device we wanted to monitor. (My sales ear hears "I have spent some money with you and would like to spend some more")

After going to the webpage, I could find no way to contact them other than Twitter. Odd, but I reach out through Twitter and below is the exchange...

Me: Who do I go about sponsoring a certain MIB support? Average cost?

Vendor: how much rope do I need to tie something? What is the average length?

Tripadvisor - Why No Wi-fi Ratings?

I know this is self serving, but we regularly read TripAdvisor reviews for guest wi-fi complaints looking for leads. With good wi-fi being so high on a guests list, why no rating category for it?

They have categories for Location, Sleep Quality, Rooms, Service, Value and Cleanliness but no Wi-fi.

It would be awesome to have TripAdvisor show me all hotels in a city with crappy wi-fi!
