Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Reader poll Our recent piece on the verbal spat between China's kung fu monks and an anonymous gobby net ninja provoked a certain amount of reader speculation as to who might in fact be the meanest kick-ass mutha on the planet.

Well, we have a certain amount of clout ourselves down at Vulture Central, and a quick phone call to Don King confirmed that if El Reg readers were to pick their top contenders for the title, the Don would be able to arrange a last-man-standing 15-rounder to decide the matter once and for all.
