I don't understand the meaning of your statement:
First, I'm not a dreamhost employee, just a customer that attempted to answer a thread that had been sitting unanswered for 8 hours.
Second, if you read this forum, you will find out this is a very common issue/problem. You're not the only one. Frankly I'm just thankful the approvals depts works on weekends now. If you dig deep in the forum you will find that those getting queued for manual approval over a year or so ago would have to wait til Monday if it was anywhere after about 3 or 4pm (PST) on Friday.
Whatever "clam down" means I had no intention of doing it, I was just simply trying to reply to your post.
