Revenge of the Nerds

GoDaddy gets spanked by by the nerds,  from Tom Cheredar, Venture Beat [1]:

Hosting and domain registrar company Go Daddy [2] has lost more than 37,000 domains in the past two days due to the company’s wishy-washy stance on the Stop Online Piracy Act.

The fleeing domains comes as a result of the intense backlash from customers and Internet critics after Go Daddy appeared on an official list of companies supporting SOPA [3]. The internet responded by staging a wide-spread boycott where people would switch their domains to another registrar, which Go Daddy initially dismissed as having little impact on their business. Now it seems that assessment wasn’t entirely accurate

Those who make their living off the Internet would be well advised to support the continued existence of said same.
