Comment Dreamhost (Score 2) 295

I used GoDaddy for a long time.
Then whatsisname, the owner guy, goes and shoots up an elephant in Africa.
Now, maybe that elephant needed killing, I don't know,
  but it wasn't his problem to solve and he can figure out something more constructive to do with his millions as I see it.
So, in irritation that I was contributing to those sorts of endeavors, and even though I think Danica is hot,
  I switched my stuff to Dreamhost as I too read that people were happy with them.
Now I am happy.
One time my credit card info got compromised.
And quite a bit before my bank, because DREAMHOST had found it on a bulletin board somewhere and compared with their records, as I recall,
told me I might want to look into it.
They was right.
