So, in fact they didn't cost you or your friends a penny.

It seems like a pretty bad business decision to move all of your domains based on one persons unsubstantiated story on a public forum.
If people commit such an act of moving all there domains because 1 person, the guy should not be listen to never again , however, if 3-4 succesfull people moved there domains from godaddy to other companies because of 'supposed' bad business...will you care on keep fishing with godaddy or you rather get sunk in bad waters?

Liar? No...I don't have the time to pull such an atrosity. It cost me $2,000 commision from a local commision here at my local business. That's just one, and then it cost me time to do more diligence on this GoDaddy mombo-jumbo facts.

There are a bunch of people moving there stuff from GoDaddy, so yes...that takes money...and if you happen to have local businesses to survive and live...what do you think will happen...you lose money. I think this is simple.

I hope this was the end of it.

That is why I have domains with many different registrars. It's not good business sense to put all of your eggs in one basket.
If I knew about this forum before, I will definitely knew better. I think I was late, but it's all good...we learn by mistakes must of us, so no worries for me.

I'm still missing something.
How did Godaddy cost you $2000 in commision?

If people are moving their domains away from Godaddy based on someone's story on a forum then they are costing themselves money. Godaddy is costing them nothing.

Exactly. Just because one person has had a problem (that you cannot confirm) with GoDaddy, doesn't justify people leaving. Every business gets complaints. But usually, the good reviews outweigh the bad. Leaving is your choice. GoDaddy is not pushing you out the door.

BTW, thanks Blue for your theory. That makes sense - I figured he was using those domains.

I have recently transferred a domain away from Godaddy because I will be running a double opt-in mailing list on that domain.

I don't want to risk having my domain shut down by the registrar because of spam complaint and then have to pay them to release it, even if I can prove it is not spam.

I have heard this tale about Godaddy quite a bit recently from what I consider reliable sources. I won't be taking a chance with it.

The problem I'm seeing is a bunch of misguided folks.

If 1 person moves their domain based on someone else's experience, tough luck to them right? If 3-4 people move their domains based on one person's experience, this is supposed to hold more weight? I'm sorry but I still say "tough luck".

You're talking about 3-4 people compared to literally hundreds of thousands who are staying. The folks moving their domains are the minority in this story. To make things even more ludicrous is that it's due to one person's experience. The other 3 people moved based on someone else's experience...not their own.

To make matters worse, Boricua is spreading things he has no first hand experience of, warning people to move their domains, warning people to stay clear of GoDaddy, when he has absolutely no idea what really happened, in regards to the one person who started it all.

One person gets caught spamming, and will obviously attempt to lie, as most spammers do, and then 3-4 people buy his story and move their domains.

Excuse me if this doesn't sound like a problem with GoDaddy, but a problem with people jumping off a 400ft cliff because someone said his buddy thought it was nice at the bottom.

Ok...great stay with Godaddy, in fact I'm still with godaddy for few hundred domains I bought, but believe me...NONE have an opt-in email form, newsletter and/or other.

I can't do more with this, this is an old post with an old story. The real post was at the warrior forum, however, it got deleted for some reason.

Anyways, I wish you good luck when someone screams spam over one of your domain and you have to deal with goaddy, this was just my suggestion.

You either take it, or you learn by yourself.

Boricua, let me start by saying tha I have no domains with GoDaddy, nor do I have anything to gain or lose from godaddy with my statements.

Now let me say that it appears to always be the same thing with your posts. You rant, but never really give any information that is first hand knowledge of any of the events you're ranting about.

I think this thread could have been useful to others had you provided such information. As it stands now, you're simply spreading nothing more than hearsay, and 3rdparty experiences.
