Golly Gee Whillikers!

I guess it pays to let 'em know you're blogging it:

Issue : I reported here that I received someone else's sensitive customer information not once, but TWICE, via text message on Monday. I was told, via computer-generated response that I would hear something from GoDaddy's customer support within 24 hours. It is now Saturday morning, and I have still not heard that this matter has been cleared up, that I should destroy the emails, or even a thank you for pointing out the problem. I've now blogged about this here, here and here:




I will continue to tell people how lousy your response to this matter has been, and you can bet I will NEVER use your service. But I suggest you notify me that this matter has been cleared up, because it's still open as far as I... and my blog... are concerned.
Five freaking days to get that response. Stoopid.

Update: Speaking of stoopid... I've been sick over the last couple of days and posted before paying attention to exactly what all I was copying and pasting. A big smoocheroo to my BlogDaddy, who pointed out my error. Yikes!

I've had several domains parked at GoDaddy for years. I've not had any issues with them. The one time I needed help it came within about 24 hours.

But then I am doing little else but using some space for serving files to my weblog, and using another domain name to host some permanent (non-ISP dependent) e-mail addresses.
