I just wanted an account at @Hetzner_Online but they don't accept my French ID as proof of identification and refused me as a customer. Ranted on the phone: turns out they can't tell me why, but I can send them a selfie.

Did anyone have a similarly shit experience with them?

@shiro
I'm curious why they need your ID at all. They are not responsible for the data you upload, so the only thing relevant should whether you are paining.

@utzer @kirschwipfel Same. The only info I have is that they say they “have a responsibility to protect other people on the Internet”, whatever that means 🤷🏻‍♀️ twitter.com/hetzner_online/sta
