A Warning to Go Daddy Users

Anobody using Go Daddy as their domain name registrar should consider switching ASAP. According to this story in CNET, Go Daddy pulled a domain name because the folks at My Space complained that someone had archived a lengthy list of user accounts and passwords. http://news.com.com/2100-1025_3-6153607.html

A registrar should not delete a domain name at the request of a company any more than I should lose my phone number because I say bad things about my phone service. I urge all folks who have registered with Go Daddy to transfer the registration immediately to another registrar that does not serve the whim of large companies.
