GoDaddy sucks

I'm in the process of changing the Too Saucy domain registrar from GoDaddy to Namecheap because the fuckhead who owns GoDaddy, an oh-so-brave fellow by the name of Bob Parsons, likes to go on elephant slaughters in Africa.

Wonkette has the story (as well as a disturbing video) and I'm switching the blog domain over to the registrar they use, Namecheap, which is doing it for half price for the next 24 hours.

Since I got the domain through Google apps and not directly from GoDaddy, I had to jump through a few hoops to get all the passwords and authorization codes, but it's worth it to send a message to this cretin.

Now, how do I get to boycott Donald Trump?

Bleh I hate their commercials anyway so this is just one more reason to hate them.

Why do those old marines (of this guys type) insist on keeping that buzzcut? Do they think it's a good look?

Haha Bill Maher just said he's not going to stay at a Trump Hotel again because of the birther shit.

I have been a loyal customer for many years and spend over $5,000/year in just one of my Godaddy accounts. I will be transitioning all of my domains to throughout the rest of this year.

Whether we have 1 domain or many, I hope enough of us switch. The message needs to be sent.

Besides, and are cheaper anyway. There's no reason not to switch.

I wonder how much their business is suffering? I hope a lot!

Bob Parsons of Go daddy is an arrogant a-hole - he defrauded us of three lucrative domains way back in the day before he was as big as he is.

Man, I hate this company so much. Actually almost my whole family was a Godaddy customer several years ago. We cancelled all our accounts simultaneously. Click here to read my story.
