That's not FAST, that's LYCOS, there Support is some of the worst i have seen!!!
The only thing FAST does here is to provide the backend solution.

>FAST Insight...
Hehe, nice thread title, Consumer_Info.

You're not the first to complain about the way Lycos.com handles the PFI packages, InSite Select and Pro..

If however this FAST/Y! deal materialises - what is going to happen with that PFI programm anyway?

They for sure can't let Lycos profit from submissions aimed at Yahoo inclusion.

I agree that Lycos/Fast account is the most terrible user interface one could possibly have. You would think it was impossible to add an extra URL/Page. They do make it very easy to click on "Spider and submit my entire site" :)

Of course check your Credit Card limit before trying this ("Spider and submit my entire site").
