SOPA loses a supporter

Under extreme pressure - meaning dollars - Go Daddy No Longer Supports SOPA

After Wikipedia pulled ALL their pages, and Reddit basically started a boycott - which means hundreds upon thousands of users were about to put their businesses and home pages elsewhere... Go Daddy seems to have figured this one out. And the Reddit community is full of IT folks, and people who have the power to actually do something about it...

For example, a typical comment on Reddit, "Godaddy needs to be the example of SOPA: you support it then we won't support you. If it passes we are not going to just sit around and give up." ~ Gibsonium''

The reality here is that Go Daddy no longer supports losing customers.
