I understand. It is frustrating to have your site down and not be able to immediately get attention for it.
As for the dreamhoststatus.com blog, information there is generally of a widespread or group-specific nature (whole system problem, or individual server impacting many users) an, as such, will only have information relevant to your site if it is affected by those types of problems; an individual site going "borked" will not show up there.
It is not you that some find anynoying; it's the repeated, in multiple forum (crossposting) "my site's down, someone help me" posts that other users of the forum, customers like yourself, can do nothing to help get resolved that are annoying (after the first such "newbie" post). Other than sympathizing with you, and pointing you to support, there is no point in us responding. It just gets a little tiresome wading through that stuff repeatedly.
And, again, it is not in anyway likely to to "get someone to help", as those who are in a position to help respond to support tickets, not forum posts.
