I know Facebook did NOT do it either, but GoDaddy is no Facebook.

It would have been a nice gesture IF GoDaddy allowed its existing customers some type of preferential access to its IPO shares. It would have been a great publicity stunt BUT also a way to reward those that actually keep GoDaddy afloat.

I am sure there were ways it could have been done.

BUT no. This is the NEW, ‘we don’t care a jot about the customer base’ GoDaddy. Shame. They used to be so customer focused. Not so now. And this will come back to bite them at some point. I, for one, have cut back my dealings with Godaddy to a minimum. I used to do all my hosting with them. Not anymore. I use Weebly and Yola. I have been deleting services and domains I had with them left, right and center.

I am not even going to try to get GoDaddy IPO shares. I am not going to buy any GoDaddy shares, full stop. I don’t care if the stop goes up 20 fold. This is NOT a good company in my reckoning. They used to be. They were outstanding. But over the last 3 years they have done everything they can to be customer-hostile and I can’t figure out why they feel that way. We are the ones that give them money. Without us there will be no GoDaddy but they treat us as if we are a nuisance. Yes, that old IT ‘adage’, the system would be perfect if there weren’t any users.

Well ….

I would advocate caution in when it comes to this IPO. GoDaddy is not on the right track. But, I could be, as ever, wrong.

Yes, it is going to be close (I think) and keenly fought. Neither side, inexplicably, have made it to a World Cup Final. So it is a big deal.

Yes, on paper New Zealand looks formidable — plus they are on HOME turf.

But, I think the South African’s after the one sided (probably fixed — in that Sri Lanka threw it away) Quarter Final match is coming to a boil. IF Amla and  Quinton de Kock click, and they are due, they will be unstoppable. I think NZ expended all of their Karma against the pathetic West Indies. Doubt they will look as good against the South Africans. But, I could be wrong. Looking forward to this.

Interesting how the cookie crumbled. Yes, of course, there is still a chance for HUGE, both ‘home teams’, Australia vs. New Zealand final on Sunday. I won’t rule out India. They run deep. But, lets get this Semi Final out of the way. I think it will be a cracker.

This was inevitable, BUT I am glad and relieved. BABA does appear to have been a fraud!

Yes, I got suckered in and as such I joined the Class Action today, with glee. I didn’t, of course, get it at the IPO price. I bought a couple of shares, post IPO. I also happened to own a share or two of YHOO. Plus I wrote options against both the YHOO and BABA shares. BABA is good to write options against. So, I am not too distressed, PLUS I am used to losing money on stock. IF I ever made any money on the stock market I would be rich — and I am not.

Check out the Lawsuit. Use the links above. Easy enough to join. Took about 20 seconds. Love the firm. All they seem to do is Class Action Suits. Way to go. THE American way.

All the best.
