I agree.   Swets is providing this service free of charge and many of us who use it are not even customers.   They have no obligation to keep it up and running.     What harm was done having it down for a few days?

Just because a company is in business to make a profit (most of them are; it’s kind of the point of capitalism) does not make them unethical.  What you say here borders on the libelous.  You should more carefully consider what you post in a public forum.

Well, it is a good thing they don't, isn't it since the list hasn't been functional for going on almost a month now.

We may not pay for this list, but I can guarantee you Swets finds other ways to price gouge.  It is beyond a disgrace that there has been absolutely zero updates about this from this so called Swets representative.  With their resources you'd think fixing a simple error such as this would be within their means.

I'm very disappointed that the Backserv list is still not working correctly, and we've had no updates from the Swets representative either since her initial e-mail.
Another example of the corporate big wigs taking our money and running.  (Huh??)
