"Hopefully ... they'll do something."
Hi. I draw your attention to the first sentence of the first post of that other thread which LakeRat linked to, which is: "The password recovery process gets discussed from time to time, but nothing ever happens."
This is becoming quite a soap opera! The main but silent character (dreamhost management) is giving a bravura display of chutzpah (which is variously translated as "audacious effrontery" or "supreme self confidence").
If you have a dreamhost account, you can submit a support ticket about this. I did that, by the way, before I ever started that other thread, and received an interesting reply in less than 24 hours, so it's worth doing.
I suggest, when you submit a support ticket, ask for permission to reproduce in this forum whatever reply they give you!
