They say they offer a 301 redirect for their parked domains but when doing a check on it it acts like a 302 still. Are they lying* to their customers?
I would hope not. If you check the server headers for a parked domain, does it return a 302 response code? If it does, then something is out of order. If their documentation states a 301, and there is a 302 being returned, then yes, there is misinformation there.
So yeah, that's a problem. I sent an email to GoDaddy about it, they either need to fix that problem or not lie about the option to their customers. If they don't fix it I'm out of there.

The thread is becoming a public flogging of GD.
As spelled out in the Domain Forum Charter:
CUSTOMER SERVICE ISSUES:
If you are dissatisfied with a registrar or other service provider, or have other issues about which you are annoyed, please file your grievance with the Better Business Bureau, the local government Consumer Advocate or other similar agency. Posts that consist of or contain complaints, grievances, allegations of shoddy customer service or business practices are subject to removal, deletion or editing.
Certain issues are better addressed - directly - to GoDaddy customer service or Bob Parsons. Therefore this thread will now be closed and you are invited to press the issue directly with GD.
Thanks for alerting us all to this issue.
