I really dislike goDaddy too. But Randall might have the same problem that I had. GoDaddy's name proxy site is hard to get free of. It might not still be true but to remove yourself from domains by proxy you can't just move to another name proxy carrier instantly. GoDaddy takes off the proxy protection and leaves you "in the clear" first and then you can transfer to a new registrar and a new name proxy service.
In my case they said it could be up to 14 days until you could be transferred to another. At the time I was just too concerned about that gap. So I stayed with goDaddy. Now years later I tried again. This time I had the new registrar all lined up. Namecheap. I had everything in place, or so I thought. it turns out that the domains by proxy company run by goDaddy's partner used a different password. I couldn't remember it. It was tied to an email service that had ended. So I couldn't reset it.
I sent them all my info proving I was the owner including my drivers license. I was fine with the requirements because I WANT it to be hard to move my account incase it was someone else doing it. But the delay meant my name was in the clear during the process. 7 days. The good news is that it finally is done, but this is just another reason that goDaddy sucks. Even the tools that they use are set up to keep you locked into their service because they want it to be easier to stay with them than to leave.
Oh and about 2 weeks before this I got hit with a 49.00 charge for two email accounts that I never had and never activated! I had to get those charges removed from my account. How many people paid those vs fought those?
