Hosting and domain registrar company Go Daddy has lost more than 37,000 domains in the past two days due to the company’s wishy-washy stance on the Stop Online Piracy Act.
GoDaddy has apparently dropped its support for SOPA, FWTW. Very little in my opinion. Reports are that they are calling customers who transfer to beg them to stay.
Its only been two days and its the holidays. Its going to take a while for this to fully work through. I certainly don't have time to switch right now and doing so is going to take several steps in order to ensure that nothing goes down.
I went with Namecheap, just submitted a transfer from Godaddy for my 10 domains. I used the discount code "SOPASUCKS" for a little money off.
If you move your domain on 12/29, they will also donate $1 to the EFF for each domain moved:

When the transfer completes I will completely cancel my Godaddy account and let them know why I switched.
Comcast is next. Haven't had time to switch home ISP yet but my current billing period ends mid January, I intend to be off of them by then.
It's time to stop giving the bastards your money if you can help it.
