CEO WARS: LOCAWEB
Welcome. This is a resource page with all the business reality that PETERSON TEIXEIRA is going through involving Locaweb, The Hosting Company. Since in our time many businesses are under Monopolies and Duopolies, it’s important to show the realities of business sabotage, in this case, by Locaweb. Business sabotage is a real thing in our world, however it doesn’t hit the news much since this subject impacts business deals, business relationships and ultimately, a business’ bottom line. Wealth. And the ability to succeed since money is going to fewer hands and companies. Which also means that many are afraid to speak out due to fear of not getting another job, or another customer, or having a way of supporting themselves. However, we have truly reached peak levels of business sabotage, including by Locaweb. Therefore, this resource must exist to warn other businesses and entrepreneurs. Naturally, this resource page will be constantly updated and/or corrected to prevent any misleading information and to maintain a good, reliable list of the truth about Locaweb. With a bit of entertainment.
All cards have the Status field which shows whether a War is CURRENTLY ongoing or not: RESOLVED or FIGHTING . However, since many of the brands that do get a worthy place here may have several other business arms, and since there are too many variables (employees, new CEOs etc) at play in the business space, a RESOLVED status may change its status back to FIGHTING again (and vice-versa). New Monkeys may be the ones to blame for a status going back to FIGHTING. Likewise, new good businesspeople can be the ones responsible for solving a current problem, turning its status back to RESOLVED. Therefore, the Status field does not reflect a final state. Nothing is final. Use it wisely.

- CEO WARS #1: The Shortened Story of The last 5 years
Because LOCAWEB THINKS it can freely do business sabotage and use it to maintain its business success and all kinds of cute “control”
Are you ready for another true story? Ready? Then here we go! I worked in all areas possible that any human can engage with a Market. “Wait, what do you mean Peterson?”. I explain: I worked for the federal government, I worked for global corporations, I worked for medium-small businesses, I worked as a freelance writer, and finally, I worked as an entrepreneur. Therefore, I know how the market actually works in practice. I have many kinds of experiences from business-to-employee, business-to-customer and business-to-business relationships. I know the realities of doing actual work on a daily basis, both as an employee and as a business owner. All kinds. Customers pretending to be good customers and buying from you in order to see your level of expertise to try to use you as a third-party service provider. Customers that have no word and are disonest. Bosses that use lies to maintain business success and want you to lie as well. Anyways, all kinds of fun experiences. To many of these things you can prepare by reading, but only one thing you learn in practice: Business sabotage. You won’t find much content about it, as it involves speaking the truth and sometimes the truth triggers business wars, lawsuits, even more business sabotage, and other nasty things that no one likes to experience nor talk about. However, at the same time, IT IS A BUSINESS REALITY. And I hate such business reality. So let’s speak the truth. Again. Back in the days when I was still in Sao Jose dos Campos – Brazil, I was doing all the hard work necessary (Read CEO WARS #1: Google | CEO WARS #2: Facebook). I was Reading, Researching, Writing, doing Marketing and everything else that involves building a real online business today. At the time, I thought that the reason for no leads was my work. And my expertise. So I upped my game, made all the sacrifices and the brand became much stronger. As I said before, I blamed myself. We true entrepreneurs always do that first. Then, after doing all that, I was still getting nowhere. So I changed my approach, and started reading what everybody else was saying and then I found out about all the business reality of Google and Facebook sabotaging businesses everywhere. But then, after doing some very strategic work (i.e. publishing The Global Financial Crisis Manifesto)…..I was still getting nowhere. NO EMAILS. NO LEADS. NOTHING. Nothing about partnerships, nor business people or media owners wanting to sue me or my brand, nor new customers. Zero emails about my work. “WHAT?! STILL ZERO EMAILS?!”. Well, that’s when you realize that things are at a completely different level and there’s more sabotage going on behind the scenes. Enter, Locaweb. My own Web Hosting Company. If you run a whois search on the domain petersonteixeira.com you’ll notice that its DNS is under Locaweb. That’s where this whole website is currently hosted. However, now I know that it’s also somehow involved with sabotaging my business — its own CUSTOMER — by blocking my email flow. As it is virtually IMPOSSIBLE to have no emails after building The Market Mastery section because ANYONE can see that it’s a bold move. Some may want to sue, others may want to partner. And others may want to buy. I knew that at the time, when I was still building it. But I saw no other option due to Google and Facebook. So emails to this very brand are being BLOCKED OR ROUTED. That’s obvious by now. Pretty obvious. This means more monkeys, so it’s time to expose. You see, ever since I published The Manifesto I noticed many strange things happening at the Admin Area for customers (CENTRAL do CLIENTE) of Locaweb. Things like the system that sets FTP passwords going from super-secure (over 14 chars) to super simple, and the system that lets you open and view your Tickets (complaints and support) showing zero tickets when you have more than one waiting for Locaweb’s response, along with useless, practically pointless customer support. So this is weird right? But I’m not done. ANOTHER thing I noticed was something I can only understand as website cloning. I explain. When you upload any image to WordPress — The CMS — while writing a page or blog post, it generates a SEQUENTIAL number that is added to the html image tag. Automatically. So after uploading one image and then another, on the same day, few minutes after uploading the 1st one, I noticed that the sequential number…..was JUMPING ONE number (?!?!?!). WHAT?! How is that possible?! I can only understand that Locaweb’s servers are doing some website cloning on the background. And while I’ve been putting out my work, another place is ALSO displaying my work. That’s the only explanation I see as fit for now. Again, my own Web Hosting provider. Now when you have that PLUS no email flow, there’s gotta be something wrong, right? So I opened some AWESOME Tickets on Locaweb’s customer support. Now here’s the funniest part: Locaweb’s Customer Support itself said that it cannot tell whether my e-mails are being blocked or not. It needs to know the header, the email address and the timestamp in order to see if the email got to my emailbox (!?). Well, that’s cute. But I don’t think that’s the truth. Rules can be defined on Locaweb’s email server in order to block incoming emails from particular companies or particular emails from those particular companies. You can set a rule that any incoming email from a company CEO’s email address never hit your emailbox. While another email from the newsletter section does get to your emailbox. That way, if a big company ever contacts you about new business or lawsuits, you never get the email. And in the future, if you need to defend yourself against such lawsuits, you’ll have little time to fight back. That’s business sabotage of the highest level baby. But again, it’s all too cute. Because at the same time, Web Hosting companies are just a few. Just like Telecom companies. Therefore, any potential damage caused by a lawsuit involving my actions that may come to hit my brand, WILL be forward as well to Locaweb. Just like my emails are being forwarded, blocked or rerouted. And there are many brands in The Market Mastery section and The Wall of Journalism. I don’t recommend engaging in such actions as no one else can be Peterson Teixeira. Nor pretend to be me in real life. Just like no one can really stop me from doing what needs to be done.
