I really appreciate how this discussion board isn't controlled by forum Nazis - unlike other web host forums where they quickly delete any post that might be interpreted to be even mildly anti-company. This is actually the only place I've visited that isn't chock a block full of annoying fan-boys "hailing the chief" with every post. We get a lot of freedom around here to call a spade a spade if we think things aren't running as they should be and/or agree with an OP who's whining that something isn't right. It's the free attitude from the board community alone (especially the "big posters" like Scott, Atropos7, rlparker et al) that keeps me coming back.
Having said that, the obvious link spammers who offer no substance to a thread and who's sole purpose is, again obviously, to do nothing more than slap up one of their website/GOLD WOW/special offer links should be treated with the contempt that they rightly deserve.
In essence this board is for current and potential DreamHost customers to seek advice and discuss technical matters relating primarily to getting things running correctly on their DreamHost account. It most certainly isn't a link farm or promo/sales pitch arena. The board deserves due respect.
