This is just my opinion.
Oh HostGator would never be the same without Brent I agree, it was very easy to get in touch with Brent almost felt like a personal company for such a size.
My point was I don't believe their problems today are due to the fact EIG acquired them. I think this would have happened anyways, maybe with Brent he would have handled it differently (cut marketing earlier like before to invest into getting talent into the doors) though who knows.
