    This is an email i received today. I was not aware that NOdaddy aka go daddy was in support of SOPA..

    "Happy Holidays -- we have some great news to share.

    We've just won two huge battles in the fight against Internet censorship -- everything you are doing is working! First off, the House of Representatives failed to move SOPA out of committee! Why? Because their offices got swamped with phone calls and overwhelmed by the snowballing opposition. Thank you for helping make that happen.

    Second, in response to the boycott of GoDaddy, the web hosting company just made a public announcement that it's dropping its support of SOPA. Amazing what you have made happen.

    Yet, we can't let GoDaddy off the hook just yet. GoDaddy supports the Senate version of SOPA, called the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA). The boycott has to continue -- Please click here to pledge to join it.

    Please join us in holding GoDaddy accountable, until they drop any and all efforts to support not just SOPA, but also its Senate cousin, PIPA. The boycott already worked to get GoDaddy to change their position on SOPA, now we urgently need to hear from GoDaddy about PIPA too.

    So what's next?

    The PIPA bill is still alive and strong in the Senate, and could be voted on in January. Like SOPA, it threatens free speech, innovation, and the basic structure of the Internet.

    Keep transferring your domains from GoDaddy until they fully come out against PIPA and SOPA. They need to send a letter to Congress making their opposition to both bills clear -- Click here to join the cause.

    Thank you for all that you do -- it is working!

    Fight for the Future

    P.S. Please use these links to ask your friends to hit GoDaddy where it hurts, by pledging to join the boycott too:

    They pulled their support when they realised it was going to hurt their business. Fear from loss of sales, rather than a change of heart.

    They only pulled their support when they knew Namecheap was going to kick their scabby asses from here to kingdom come.

    Namecheap hasn't supported the SOPA from the start (I believe) so watching GoDaddy eat their own words whilst doing a U-turn has made Namecheaps day.

    F.U GoDaddy - never liked you, never will.......

    Not to mention Namecheap has a faster DNS change time, less annoying registration process, free whois guard, etc. Not that I'm some expert, but they're better in every way.

    Plus their CEO is less of a douche.

    I hav about 20 domains registered through Godaddy and I am pulling them.

    Also for future purchases I'm not using them for future registration as this latest event with them flip flopping shows that they will pander to anyone.

    Not if they are on the receiving end of all the confiscated domains.
