A vendor notified us of their acquisition at 6am this morning and shut down their APIs 30 minutes later, creating a production outage for npm (package publishes and user registrations). The sheer unprofessionalism of this is blowing my mind.

What the actual fuck. That's unacceptable. Turning down an API requires notice -- hopefully by policy.

It takes weeks to negotiate and sign an acquisition. You didn't find out at 6am. You couldn't give us a week? Even a couple of hours to take your service out of our critical path and avoid an outage? Fucking shocking behavior.

I’ve never heard of or seen behavior that bad. Anything less than a month is unprofessional in my opinion, and a more usual amount is three to six months. I’m guessing the acquisition was an acquihire or taking the tech in-house?

Heh, I’ve realised third-party vendors frequently screw over customers without a worry. It’s pretty sad tbh.

not that it matters who they were now, I'd know if I used them, but who bought them? I don't want to use those people's services.
