Seems that after being a customer for almost 7 years (and a dedicated server customer), DH now considers me a “troll” and my original post in this thread was inappropriate, so I guess we should discontinue the discussion. (You can also get an indication of why we asked the original question in the first place.)

You felt compelled enough to write us about THAT?
Too bad you guys never got back to us that quickly when we were sinking back in May and needed SUPPORT.
You want to talk about burning bridges? We’ve been a customer of yours for over 6 years, and received not a single call from one of your owners --or anyone ELSE there for that matter – when we were having major difficulties back in May and calling out for help, Michael. DreamHost burned its bridges to us by turning a deaf ear.
Some way to treat a loyal, almost-7-year customer.
