Most places are selling domains for around that price. It was GoDaddy's decision to try to handle abuse in this manner. If they can't do it at this price point, why is that a problem that their customers should have inflicted on them? So do you really think that the true abusers are getting nuked? Or is it more likely that they register a name at GoDaddy, get nuked once, and then go elsewhere for future activities? That means that the volume of legitimate complaints at GoDaddy ought to be somewhat lower than at their competitors, which simultaneously means that they would *need* to be doing a much better job of analysis, or they risk closing down legitimate domains more often. > Perhaps the message here is that you get what you pay for.

Personally, I don't consider "submit a spam complaint and get someone's domain taken down without due diligence" to be a service. However, I guess I can make an exception and agree that GoDaddy is offering "rock bottom service." > ObOperations: I need a 1.5Mb net connection.

Sometimes that happens for hicap circuits too. Don't get me started about the provider that "only does BGP from 9 to 5." ...
