[quote]I don’t work for Dreamhost so this is just my speculation, but I think the
72 hour thing is where there might be a suspected violation and they
want to hear from you.
Yours was a confirmed violation (all anyone had to do was go to USENET)
and therefore subject to immediate disablement.
This is correct. Confirmed violations allow for immediate disablement, whereas in cases where there’s a reasonable chance that spamming did not occur we provide at least 72 hours for the customer to get back to us.
In any case, this particular issue has been resolved. The spammed web site can no longer be hosted here, and (given the original poster’s conciliatory nature) he can host his other site here as long as there is no use of Usenet or bulk email in promotion of that site.
