    The Internet is collectively raging at domain seller Go Daddy for supporting the “Stop Online Piracy Act“, with people like Ben Huh threatening to pull away 1,000 domains owned by his company Cheezburger.

    In response, Go Daddy has published a blog post that is as useful as a pile of day-old dogshit.

    Many of our customers have asked us about our position on the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). Below are statements from Go Daddy Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary, Christine Jones. We’ve made them available here on our blog so all our customers can read our position.

    Basically, all Go Daddy has done is copy and paste the statements it submitted to the House of Representatives about SOPA on October 28th and November 15th of this year. You can read them here if you want.

    The real kicker is that Go Daddy doesn’t want to hear what you, its customer, thinks. So they turned commenting off on the post.

    There you have it folks, this is the type of Internet that Go Daddy supports. Now if you don’t mind, I have a few domain names to transfer.
