GoDaddy, and SOPA

PadMapper’s had GoDaddy as its domain registrar for at least a year now, but they just publicly endorsed Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) for some reason (a bill under discussion in the US Congress which would severely harm the state of the internet in a probably futile attempt to stamp out piracy of music, movies, etc). I won’t do business with companies that knowingly support something as deeply flawed as SOPA, so PadMapper is now changing registrars, and I would encourage anyone with a site on GoDaddy to do the same.

    I’m having trouble tagging homes as favorites. What’s wrong? It’s being tempermental.

    Bob Parsons became bad when he was slaughtering elephants IMO.

    This just sealed the deal.

    I’ve always enjoyed padmapper. I’m a fan. I will continue to be a fan. In fact, I’ll be getting one of those t-shirts soon, I’m sure!

    I was wondering if Googles new pricing for Google Maps will effect padmapper in any way? Seeing as how they have a max of 25,000 map renders a day for a site this probably gets a much higher % then that.

      Hi Craig, the site won’t be affected, but thanks for asking!
