GoDaddy, the Internet's largest registrar of domains, would like the world to forget it ever supported the much-maligned Stop Online Piracy Act now before Congress. Namecheap, the second largest registrar, wants to make sure the world never forgets it. In recent days, the domain registering titans have clashed over GoDaddy's on-off support of SOPA. GoDaddy has withdrawn its initial support of the legislation aimed at protecting intellectual property from being pilfered by pirates on the Net, but that hasn't stopped Namecheap.

. . . do as they usually do and just tell us what we want to hear? And yes, they are that dumb to think that they could continue their support in the background thinking we'd never find out. I want certified proof. AND no rate increase on the 16th. Namecheap is looking very good about now.
