101 Reasons Why GoDaddy is CREEPY

Previously on Y.I.P.C.A.N.J.O, we discussed 101 Reasons Why GoDaddy Is EVIL.  It was my intention to let dead dogs lie, at that point.  Steam released, frustrations put aside, etc..

That was, until the next stunt that GoDaddy decided to pull…

The day after my “GoDaddy is EVIL” post, I receive an email to my work email address.  Wanna guess who it’s from?  How about the “Office of the President” at GoDaddy!  I wish I was kidding.

Here’s the email I received…

Dear Mr. <My Name Here>,

Gosh!  What a nice email from those kind and caring GoDaddy folks.  Well, it WOULD be if it didn’t creep me out so much. 


First of all, did I even *remotely* sound like I wanted help from GoDaddy?  Trust me — if I wanted help from them, I would’ve called.  Secondly, they quite blatantly “tracked me down”.  My name isn’t on this blog anywhere.  My email address (tied to this blog) is NOT my work email account, nor will it ever be.  Clearly, they performed sound dirty work to find me and (offer to) help me.


Some would call it “great customer service”.  I call it creepy.
