Or for that matter, that Go Daddy will begin operating with a shred of business ethics? Yeah, I didn't think so either.

Never used them... what did allegedly they do that was so unethical? They seem like a popular host / registrar.

I have friends who have had GoDaddy outright refuse to transfer their domains out to other registrars or "lose" the record of the transfer multiple times. They also have horrible customer support and often bill people for canceled services. Their biggest offense (beyond what nin linked) is what's called "frontrunning". Essentially, what happens is you search for a domain name that's available. If enough people search for that but don't commit to it, GoDaddy buys the domain themselves because they know there's interest in it, then jack up the price when someone does want to buy. This violates the rules of ICANN (the international body that regulates TLDs) but since ICANN is gutless, GoDaddy has continually gotten away with this.

Bob Parsons has no business ethics and is just a piece of shit human being to boot. It's sad that he's getting rich based on the way he does business.
