  1. Thank you for posting this. Not many in today’s culture are willing to stand up for what is right or to stand against what is wrong the way you have.

    While searching for a domain registrar and a web hosting service, I ran across GoDaddy’s porno involvement – and immediately scratched them from my list.

    (I’ve since heard they aren’t that great and should be avoided anyway. =)

    For anyone who thinks pornography is harmless, Google “Ted Bundy Interview” and hear the truth. Then clean up your act.

    Keep up the good work, Jeff Smith, MediaMouse & GRIID!
