    No I meant elephant, the CEO of GoDaddy "Bob Parsons goes on a yearly trip to Africa and shoots elephants, this year he filmed it and it caused a huge backlash. He said he did it because the elephants were eating their crops and so on, but everyone got pissed as there are other ways of handling it.

    In fact, Namecheap ran a big promotion that week to get people from GoDaddy that was extremely successful saying they don't shoot elephants. It was all very LOLs.

    It has nothing to do with a fat ugly American killing animals to kill time.
    If you are from SA and kill them for survival then it's a different story. Anyway and anyways have nothing to do with it.

    Your missing the point here...

    Their an environmental problem...if their going to get killed, you might as well get some dumb tourist to kill it and make money to sustain these poor communities that live in and around these habitats. It costs hundreds of thousands (SA RAND) to shoot and elephant... great source of income for these people...

    Having just paid my July renewals on Godaddy, I'd imagine that their revenue stream is a whole lot stronger than MySpace... :)
