DreamHost is hosting spammers


#1

Dreamhost is now hosting spammers on thier network and because of that they have been listed on http://www.spamhaus.org

So long as Dreamhost is harbouring known spam
operations I would never use thier service!

www.powerprospect.com
www.valuemasters.com

They have been harbouring these spammers
since November 26 2005 and they are still
hiding on DreamHost’s network to todays date.

You need to email DreamHost directly if you are not an existing customer. This is a customer interaction forum, and is rarely visited by DreamHost employees. Use the Contact Form.

No doubt.
I just wish he would learn to spell ‘their’. He writes it enough times to have learned by now.
I wonder what compels people to write such long messages composed purely from cut and paste? I am sure there is a piece of text he has not cut and paste somewhere!
