Another example of why "The Cloud" is a bad idea.
Users should always have full ownership (thus full control) of their data, not some random online entity. This is why I advocate people do their own backups to media they themselves own and have physical control over.
That said, I should note I do not have a problem with services like rsync.net because the overall demographic is different and they're less of a "black box" than these weird online "cloud" or "cloud-esque" providers -- but I still would not use them for data which I consider extremely important or mission-critical.
