Came here to say the exact same thing. Pure extortion.
Over time, I'll be moving my hosting to those companies that do support Let's Encrypt... a big, nasty job that I won't get paid for...
Judge Dredd manages quite successfully with a smart gun. I would suggest that the principle of safety first is sound, it's the technology that isn't up to speed yet. Go back to the drawing board.

I rest my case...
What do you mean "now". I've successfully been side-stepping exchange my IT career by employing open standards based protocols and infrastructure instead. Easy.
My business' email is working perfectly on all operating systems and devices*.

Getty's business model is flawed and it's not Google's fault they can't make money
My standard response to anyone that says "don't swear"
It shouldn't be rocket science to make the records of school leavers anonymous each July. That way they have the data but it's not linked to an identifiable person for ever.
Whatever, this system should not be Internet facing
couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of f**g leaches
Recent did this myself on my Galaxy Note 2 since Samsung & O2 refuse to keep Android up to date on it.
Cyanogenmod, Privacy Guard, AdAway, Firefox, Adblock Edge, Ghostery. I now have no adverts anywhere except those sites and Apps I actively want to support (El reg etc.)

There's room for both
x4 pages = x4 adverts
And they wonder why people use ad-block...
... firing up Rhythmbox...
I've never had a problem with eBuyer - but never needed to use their customer service either.
I do try and use vendors who play nice so who should I be using instead then?
Needs two people to log into your account. Simple!
>>hopes to keep the OS up to date: by updating it automatically for its users

They should drop the whole office suite and start contributing to LibreOffice ;)
Homosapians have been waving theirs hands around for over 60,000 years - and Apple are now patenting it?
