Don’t Trust GoDaddy!


Like the title says… Don’t trust GoDaddy!

As many know, I have been increasing interested in addicted to purchasing pre-owned domains.

Yesterday, I decided to give GoDaddy Auctions a try.
I paid their $4.99/year fee, and found a $10 domain to bid on.
Before I made the bid, I looked up the Whois for the domain.
Note the expiration date is 02/04/2010.

I won the auction (only bidder).
At checkout, an extra $10.89 was required to renew the expired domain. That’s right… expired!

Nowhere was I notified that the domain had expired.
Buying an expired domain means (1) you have to pay to renew it, and (2) the original owner can take it back up to 42 days after it expired.

I called their support, who basically told me Too Bad.
And I have just contacted email support.
However, I do not expect a much better response.

Email support was actually worse.

I am transferring all my domains at GoDaddy to somewhere else.
And won’t give GoDaddy, or should I say NoDaddy, another cent.

This lesson cost me $25.88, but I’m giving it to you for free.


Proud to be an American?


Mr. Obama spoke of “a clear and strong commitment to the security of Israel: our strongest ally in the region and its only established democracy.” Quoth he: “That will always be my starting point.”Source

Oh God.

I stopped reading, watching, and listening to the news
For so long, I forgot why I did.
Now I remember.

I’m… distraught.

Our support of a horrid regime has planted a dreadful seed.
If you don’t know why the Israeli government is horrid,
Google things like Israel is evil or Israel massacres.

I have always been a nationalist.
And have defended America against citizens and foreigners.

As disturbing facts filtered into my little world.
I cast them off; onto an old man named Bush.

Ecstasy was mine when Barack Obama was elected president.
Although I quickly spouted All politicians are just liars to others,
Deep down I believed him.
I believed in change.
I believed in “Yes, we can”.

I don’t believe anymore.

But, where can anyone turn?

The news in every country is filled with awful things.
Humans continually finding ways to cause harm.
Harm to the Earth, the animals, themselves, and each other.

I miss my little world.
My 25-mile radius world.

Ignorance is bliss.
