He says Google's webspam team probably bought dropped domains to penalize them already. He seems to have no clue Godaddy sells these things. In all seriousness though, it is no wonder he stepped down as CEO. I imagine he just says what his customers want to hear, but maybe he really is this dumb? Is it at all possible he is so ill informed that he thinks that buying a dropped domain is a blackhat tactic?
