The fact that the internet has the power to change the public position of an internet company is amazing reinforcement for the movement to save the interwebz. What I am afraid of is the fact that Go Daddy really didnt change their corporate mind because they had a change of heart and a moral realization. Go Daddy changed their mind PUBLICLY in order to try and save their own ass due to the internet masses pulling out their domains and registering with companies like Bluehost.com and Hover.com . The mini victory success only lies in the fact they forced a company to become even more deceptive then it already was.
Go Daddy states in their news feed that "Fighting online piracy is of the utmost importance, which is why Go Daddy has been working to help craft revisions to this legislation - but we can clearly do better," Warren Adelman, Go Daddy's newly appointed CEO, said. "It's very important that all Internet stakeholders work together on this. Getting it right is worth the wait. Go Daddy will support it when and if the Internet community supports it."
I have taken the liberty in Translating their statement from save-my-own-ass into English "fighting online piracy is important to our investors which is why we will continue to help reword and confuse the bill until it passes into existence, and we will maintain our position that we had yesterday, but publicly we will lie in order to keep customers from going to our competitors, leaving all the information on the back burner until it is passed because then we can censor those who talk bad about us. Right now you have the power but soon we will."
Go Daddy must think we are all retarded? They must not understand, what has been cant be unseen YET. The reality isnt 1984 YET.. So I am saying, the boycott should remain in place because their true feelings have remained in place. We already know how they really feel.
