Have you complained to them yet? If you don't, they will never learn. I used
to do the same with a bank, only to find out that others made similar
complaints which put a lot of pressure on both the support people and the
body as a whole. The last thing they want is an offended front-line person
that leaves, as well as bad publicity in the press.

This is often the result of narrow-minded IT education. Judging by the URL,
which indicates Microsoft Windows runs the Web site, I am not surprised, to
say the least. Everybody including the MI6 and FBI knows that Linux server
surpass their Windows counterpart in terms of security and performance.

Indeed. That server infrastructure can be rather pricy.
