Bye Bye GoDaddy - Warning, Disturbing Content

I've been hosting all my domain names with them for years, but after the disgusting and disturbing news of GoDaddy's CEO mercilessly slaughtering an elephant for "fun", you can bet they'll NEVER get my business again. He's not going out to prove his manhood by killing innocent animals on my dime.

Sorry for all the crazy activist-type postings lately...it's just, once you start paying attention to this stuff, the world looks a lot different. Not only am I switching, but I'm going to a company that is taking advantage of this situation and donating proceeds to all domain transfers from GoDaddy to Save The Elephants. I'll always back a company that is willing to capitalize on animal philanthropy and I'll always jump ship on a company when I discover intentional animal cruelty.


If you are the type of person who wants to make some changes to prevent animal cruelty, but you feel too overwhelmed to know where to begin, start small. Look on the back of the bottles of your shampoo, conditioner, lotion and soap. If it doesn't say "Not Tested on Animals", then it IS tested on animals. Start with a cruelty free shower every day and educate yourself about what the farms are like that produce your food and dairy products. (Dairy cows are not happy cows, despite the cute advertisements. I'll put it this way, milk cows have to be pregnant to produce milk. Guess what they do with the male calves? Veal! They take the calves away at birth and female cows low for their calves for days and days in distress and confusion. Even if you don't eat it, if you buy from a farm that sells it as Veal, you might as well be...and that's not even the half of it...)

Even though PETA has a lot of flaws, they provide a lot of free and helpful information for those wanting to know where to get started.  They provide a free starter kit with information on how to begin.

And don't even get me started on the circus....

If you have even the slightest care for animals, unload your GoDaddy domain names, stop drinking milk, and for the love of God, DO NOT GO TO THE CIRCUS.

Other than that, have a pleasant day.
