I tried to set up a hosting account with Dreamhost a couple of days ago, and got shut down. Why? Ostensibly, because I’m on some OFAC terrorist list or something, or maybe I’m the Shah of Iran, trying to get some webspace with filthy American dollars.
Except I’m not in Iran, or the Shah of Iran, in fact, I’m not on this damned list in the first place (I checked).
But because of this shite, I have to wait and wonder if my credit card is going to get charged (would be a hoot, if they couldn’t serve me but they could charge my citibank credit card), or if I should just find another hosting service, or what.
Could you Americans kindly get your xenophobia in order. Thank you.
