I'm sorry for going off-topic again, but IAmAtMyWitsEnd's speculations are going from absurd to utterly ridiculous.
And, if they do lease the space rather than own the facility, what does that have to do with DreamHost's ability to run a webhosting business? There are thousands of businesses world-wide that either rent or lease office space. How would DreamHost be any different? You, IAmAtMyWitsEnd, rent server space and run your business off of it. Does that mean that you cannot effectively run your business?
