report from the web wilderness

Who'd a thunk that abstract art and music would be so popular as to a require me to "grow" the site?
My webhost (Dreamhost) has been shutting me down for hours at a time NOT because of malware but because my malware-deterrent plugins tax the server's shared resources.
They suggested I could move up to a "virtual server" (for more money), as if my business had taken off and I needed to scale.
But seriously, I would only be scaling up to accommodate all the increased criminal activity Google and its "links are money" schemes have brought my way, as a long term blogger with an enviable (?) page rank.
This would be growth in the sense that you bought a new, larger set of clothes to accommodate all the parasites clinging to your body.
