Godaddy.com supports SOPA

Recommended Posts

Godaddy.com's owner is a tool. Don't u dudes remember when he went canned hunting? Hunting is gay enough as it is without making it even more unfair for the animal.

More on the topic of the internet though, if the internet became highly regulated in most parts of the world, how could an underground "outernet" of sorts be set up? Considering the times that we live in with such immensely powerful communication technology, I think that no matter how butchered the internet gets, free information and communication will find it's way past that regardless.

Wishy-washy wankers. Oh well, at least they're on the side of the Constitution...for now.

Well, they're still really not. It's amusing reading on Slashdot how many people just switched to other companies anyway. Let's all badger Quasar to do it too!

They're probably the most popular site for registering domain names, and has tools for web hosting as well. They manage over 45 million domain names.

Is it possible to bypass the middleman and register domains direct from ICANN?

If it's something I can do the next time my domain's about to expire that would be lovely. Otherwise, I just renewed them a couple months ago and I am not about to pay that money again right now.

I blacklisted GoDaddy years ago when they seemed to be the registrar of choice for spammers - especially those promoting porn sites.

I should probably pay more attention to the potential ramifications of SOPA if it's passed. Is this pretty close to the mark?

The site would probably just be blacklisted.

Here's another reason not to use GoDaddy even though they've now reversed their stance on SOPA.

Looks like several reasons to me.

This is interesting and what I expected. GoDaddy can go to Hell.

Ahaha, and the other article said he made a vlog on how to grow balls of steel. Seems he's more of a spineless pantywaist to me.

I don't know... Feeding hungry Africans looks like a good thing in my book.

The other points though are dickish/stupid/laughable.

Yeah, that kind of ninja-censorship is not cool. The funny part is I can't even remember what I wrote. I still don't appreciate it. It's the kind of thing the backers of SOPA want.

I probably wouldn't have handled the situation the same way Lüt did, but I'm sure you know that the Doomworld forum mods are not bound by the US Constitution, right? Right??
