    What are your thoughts on this.
    Funny how they supported it and now are against it.


    Is this because of 'Dump Go Daddy Day'

    First off it was a stupid move on Godaddy's part to get involved in politics. Now they have made the coup de gras by waffling on the subject. Damn sad excuss for a business person if you ask me.

    They can easily pull their customers back but of course they would have to offer some pretty good discounts to make that happen, once your image is tarnished in the way in which their image now is, it takes a lot to earn the respect back.

    They pretty much already showed their colors by there first stab into the political arena. I don't think I'll use them even for $1.00 domains.

    Go Daddy is supposedly now against the SOPA act (trying to censor the internet and other BS) and now they're "for it" because they are losing customers.

    GoDaddy tried to pull a PR stunt and oppose it, but they are still for it, and as soon as the hype dies down a little, they will go back to supporting it.

    If you haven't already, pull your domains out now, I have. ;)

    There was only one good thing Bill Clinton did as President and that was to leave the fucking Internet alone. When will the parasites in Congress finally realize that they could fuck up a wet dream?

    For domains at $1.18, they can pretty much do anything they want and I'll still get it.

    wow, that's pretty harsh.
    you must have mad dough on deck.
    try internet.bs, they have nine buck domains with FREE WHOIS FOR LIFE. Plus they're legit, like namecheap.
