I am considering Joining dreamhost, but not while it goes through all these growing pains.

When do you expect to be back to perfoming as a reliable hosting provider?

Sincerely,
Vince

I think the growing pains related problems passed. Those seemed more linked to price drops & promo codes, which have now been around quite some time.

These last problems were more related to the data center & power outage.

Yeah, listen to this loser. That's gotta be his site and he's spamming it all over DH because it has his promo code on it, as well as referral links. That, or he really considers a complaint from over a year ago to be a newsflash that will change the way the world thinks about web hosting.

He's much more trustworthy than those of us that have been here for years and pass our commission onto you with a max-discount promo code, while he's making a minimum of $47 per customer with his $50 off promo code.

Anyway, if you want to read complaints, there are plenty of them right here, mixed in with the positive reviews.

I am of the mind that most of these posts that attack DreamHost are part of an orchestrated campaign against them. Possibly by a failing rival... or alien beings from another planet who have no access to the DreamHost Blog or the pleasures of musical nose flute playing.

I actually had IAmAtMyWitsEnd as number one suspect but eliminated him quickly because the spam posts had big words in them. Smile Plus, he said it was not him.

My new top suspect is the bloke who weighs the sprouts in the local shop called 'The Happy Shopper'. See the connection?

Ha! "Good Stuff, that!" You may be right, but I'm with Seiler on this one...the "hit and run" link-spam to the site where his promo code lives makes it pretty obvious. sigh...

Quote:I actually had IAmAtMyWitsEnd as number one suspect but eliminated him quickly because .... Plus, he said it was not him.
You *do* realize that his "protestation of innnocence" could be a feeble attempt at misdirection...but I'd like to believe him on this one. Something seems to be changing in his posts; he used to only show up to harp about how bad things are at Dreamhost, but of late he seems to be making an effort to participate more fully in the discussions (or is that just another piece of misdirection?)... Or maybe it is all part of the "WebGuerilla" qualities he lists in his bio... Wink

He took me to task several days ago for "profanity" and "not being nice", but when I responded asking him to clarify and offering to edit my post, he went silent for a few days, then returned and seems to be trying to be more a part of the community.

I think "the jury is still out", but I'm willing to "see how the plot develops"....

Ah! But who really "knows" you...not believeing "in promo codes or even adsense Wink" could all be a WebGuerilla tactic Wink

I cleared IAmAtMyWitsEnd as the spammee on the grounds that IAmAtMyWitsEnd (Must take ages to type his name in?) appears to be an inveterate texter. All his sentences start with lower case letters. Enough to cause apoplexy in my grammar teacher. Mind you she was a strange woman. Smoked a pipe and had a beard and called herself Mr Jones. She was a good footballer though.

That just leaves the DreamHost staff now.

I saw your interchanges with IAmAtMyWitsEnd. My, they were long pieces. They should have been serialised. I got lost after a few sentences and could not work out who to vote for in the end, so count me as a 'do not know'. Smile
