I'm pretty amazed at some of the reactions here.
As noted above, they had a reputation for holding domains hostage a few years ago. I can't believe anyone would do business with a company like that. I certainly won't.
I had a friend recommend them to his clients. One old dude, on his recommendation, bought a domain through them. This guy got confused on the upsell and ended up buying a ton of crap he didn't want or need. And Godaddy's response? Tough luck buster.
If that wasn't enough, their advertising is an assault on my sensibilities. There's a world of difference between using sex to sell something, and selling sex. Particularly when they're not even selling sex.
