For me, I offer the full discount codes because:
1. I live in hope that one day, I will get a secondary referral. (no, just kidding, I have gotten a few!)
2. I was referred by a friend at work, so he's getting lots of secondary referrals. As an update of what I said in another thread, I'm now up to the "free dinner" level of karma.
3. I want people to get the best deal. I kinda figure that people who have done the legwork and come here to research DreamHost should get the best deals. It's slightly off topic but I'm kinda hoping that one day soon my little website will be high enough on the search engines to ensure that people don't have to use "inferior" codes.
If you have trouble finding the older threads, I'd be happy to help out and give you the search terms if you get frustrated.
