This is a one off message and I will not reply to any public posts. But 
it's gotten to the point that I am quite angry by the underhanded sales 
tactics by a company that I once considered reputable.

I have available discounted SSL certificates via a small reseller 
account with SRSPlus.  I get a very good price via this service on 
Thawte's ssl certs.

Comodo sales droids are now calling my customers to offer them 
discounted SSL certificate renewals.  However they are quoting them 
retail prices.  I am paying well under posted retail prices and 
generally sell them to my customers at about 50% of what Comodo is 
claiming to be a discounted price.

Comodo is cold calling business owners that have no idea what a SSL cert 
is for a website and trying to sell them something they know nothing 
about.  My customers contact me for their website needs and I take it 
from there.  I bill them after I pay for the cert via my resellers 
discount program.

Enough.  Just fair warning to rest of this list about this practice from 
Comodo.  End of subject from me.
