Our web site is hosted with a CDN that has some points of presence within Rackspace’s network.

I just had a comment deleted from this thread because I made a humourous statement about why DreamHost might not use their own hosting.

While your humor is appreciated, what you’d written was worded as a factual (and incorrect) statement about our service, which could confuse visitors. Keep in mind that many of the users viewing this forum may have found it through a search engine, and hence may not realize some of the context.
