Qwest has taken a beating in the press over their $5 lottery ticket purchases. There has been a bit of “clarification,” but not much in the way of capitulation. It has been a PR nightmare, to say the least.
Unfortunately, the games don’t end there. EmailBattles has found that GoDaddy’s registrar arm has per spam charges in their T&Cs as well, albeit at a mere buck an incident.
Maybe GoDaddy is just trying to be price competitive like they always have, charging 80% less than everyone else. But, maybe they don’t realize that falsifying spam locales is easy as pie. This will inevitably result in a lot of lost domains, and a whole lotta hassles for both GoDaddy and their customers.
