So how long is the contract with stack social?
All I’m going to say is search “GoDaddy” here on BB for all of the articles with glowing reviews of Godaddy…
beware of godaddy! they’ll steal your domain name if you don’t register asap. also bb conflict of interest?
So I guess BoingBoing is all good with GoDaddy now?
Nobody anywhere is good with GoDaddy…
Nine years ago, I pulled my domains from GoDaddy on Mark Frauenfelder’s recommendation. What has changed in the intervening years to warrant this encomium?
As I understand it, these ads come from an outside agency and are incorporated as “articles” by a script
Nobody at BB even sees them before we do
Beat me to it!
Disclosure: my partner and I design, host, dehack etc. web sites. We left the ultra-abusive relationship with GoDaddy ~10 years ago and never looked back. New clients who still host with GoDaddy mean we do have to deal with GoDaddy on a regular basis, providing us a powerful reminder and all the proof we might need that we will never ever go back to them. We will not forget the many egregious–alleged or otherwise–issues surrounding that company.
Since when has GoDaddy gone from “the spawn of Satan” to “my best fuck buddy”? Is all it takes is a financial donation from Trump for him to become a “righteous dude”?
That’s an explanation, but it’s not a good excuse.
jfc Boing Boing has officially jumped the shark.
OTOH isn’t that the definition of algorithm in the first place?
I am inclined to agree with you more and more every day. Esp. when actual contributors hawk more and more plastic, disposable crap.
How else are they going to pay their mod(s) and sysadmin though? Seriously asking.
