Most of the people on this forum are customers, so you'd hope they'd recommend DreamHost, or move on.
There's a saying, "good, fast, cheap; pick two." Usually it applies to project schedules, but it also applies to hosting. I recommend DreamHost for hobby or small business sites. They're relatively cheap, often fast, and pretty good much of the time. If you can't, or don't want to, tolerate an occasional slowness or downtime, http://www.dreamhoststatus.com/, then they might not be for you. Let us know if you can find anybody better for the price. Also, if relative open-ness and good sense of humor is important, this could be the place http://blog.dreamhost.com/ .
