Very true! I guess that's one of the reasons recent events have been so frustrating for me; I vividly remember the "old days" of having Dreamhost mail service being more reliable than my ISP's
I would love to see that happen. and so would the clients I have placed here over the years.
I guess that depends on what kind of future Dreamhost wants to experience; there will always be a place for cheap, suitable-only-for-hobbyist web hosts. I, like you, want to see something more in Dreamhost's future. Thanks for taking the time to participate here. It goes a long way toward calming fear of the unknown than can run wild when there is little/late information on Dreamhoststatus.com.
