+ - Imgur.com: Why We Dumped GoDaddy-> 3

Submitted by Velcroman1
Velcroman1 writes: On the eve of what has been dubbed “Dump Go Daddy Day,” imgur.com — the massive image hosting sites is responsible for an astonishing 28 terabytes of bandwidth and nearly 200 million page views per day — has already changed its registry entries, foreshadowing the potential negative effect of a boycott set to begin Thursday morning. GoDaddy.com originally supported the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) — RackSpace called it "a deeply flawed piece of legislation" that will hinder free speech and infringe on first amendment rights — but quickly recanted its position when the call of a boycott circulated. “The outcry kind of forced our hand,” imgur founder and owner Alan Schaaf said. “I’m against the SOPA act and imgur as a company is against it. We just feel it is terrible that GoDaddy.com would support this legislation.”
