Was this page just rolled over from the old Wiki in its entirety? It's
not in the right spot in the wiki (it's a subbranch of "pages" which
doesn't exist) and it's got a lot of garbarge. In an admittedly random
and unscientific sampling of about a dozen sites, about half were
either not hosting providers or no longer were in operation. Also, a
lot of the listings don't comply with the stated "30 word" guideline.
Should we blow out this information except for providers we are
immediately familiar with, correct the geography issues (or maybe even
break the page into regional sub-pages, since I doubt that someone
interested in EU hosting cares about China hosting) and let providers
who still care come back in and add their information? This seems like
one page where the outside information will populate fairly quickly
once active RoR hosts realize it's there and in usable condition.
I don't think any of us want to sit and verify that each of these 100-
odd providers is still actively operating, but that's really what has
to be done if we want to roll this information over from the old wiki
en masse. This kind of data tends to get stale very quickly and
apparently has gone sour.
