"least horrible" seems like a good way to phrase it!

On lists where the participants are not computer literate, 
is/was the logical place to go when the Yahoos made them homeless.
They weren't even aware of the meaning or the Jonathan Swift origin when 
they named their company, and it didn't even occur to them to do a search 
to find out!

There are people HERE who could probably do a better job, or at 
least one more specifically customized to what WE want.
But, we need to be very careful to select a host with adequate resources, 
AND stability, not just "I'll have plenty of time to manage it all summer 
long."  We are looking for DECADES, not months or years.
