My account was apparently suspended with the billing snafu. (I didn't get the emails requesting payment, and my credit card's expiration date had passed.) Now, though I've paid up, the Control Panel says the account is still suspended. Plus, it says that I have 0 domains hosted, 0 users, etc., when I have at least 5 domains hosted on my Dreamhost account - all without email and web sites now since Monday! I've submitted (4) support requests, all without receiving a single response (I've been checking the Support History page - nothing.)
Apparently I don't really exist anymore in the Dreamhost system, so they can't "hear" me asking them for help. Unfortunately all of the users who don't have email or websites still have my cell phone number, and keep calling and texting. This is such a futuristic foo!
