    If true, that would be reason enough to leave.

    I wouldn't trust the companies fanning the flames just to get business from GoDaddy either....

    That is more shady IMO than what GoDaddy is doing.

    It's no different than targeted adds that other companies do with high profile issues. All cable and satellite companies toss out adds with public channel negotiations going on. Cell phone companies target each other in areas where one has more network problems.

    If DISH knew what it was doing in marketing they could have made a killing on the Netflix not Netflix issue.

    Taking advantage of your competitors mistakes has always been a key business move.

    In other words..... "we oppose it because everyone else does at the moment but as soon as they all like it we will like it again. We will flip-flop our stance to keep the majority of people happy".

    PS I heard they were getting their PR from Reed Hastings :lol:

    They have yet to come out and state the problems in the bill. They do not understand the bill and that (for a technical company) is scary given that it is their business.

    For those of you who say they wont be affected by the bill - you could be. If you use any site to post information (say you have a wordpress blog hosted off your servers, or use facebook, or you tube or even this forum). As I mentioned before - with this bill and the current wording, I can quite easily shut down this forum. That is the problem. It is not the "intent" of the bill that is causing the issue, it is the very loose and vague terms deliberately put in there.

    So even though the intent was to stop people copying music, video, software etc. the wording says that anyone can claim a copyright infringement (without having to prove ownership or copyright) and the whole domain name will be blocked. So again. I can claim copyright infringement in a post on here and instead of the post being removed they redirect the WHOLE internet requests for dbstalk.com (and as far as we are aware currently, all subsites and email etc.).

    Still like it?

    And just one more thing. The people who say that they dont care as it doesnt affect them..... (and I hate to get into politics) .... this is just another small step into government censoring the internet and free speech and the constitution.
