In case you missed the recent controversy involving GoDaddy.com CEO Bob Parsons, ABC has a pretty complete article about it. To summarize, Bob Parsons posted a graphic personal video showing him shooting an elephant in Zimbabwe. The video also shows villagers butchering the animal the next day. PETA jumped on this story immediately, calling for a boycott of GoDaddy.com. Bob Parsons refused to apologize and maintained that he killed the elephant because elephants trample crops that the villagers desperately need. 

If you are offended by the video and want to transfer your domain names away from GoDaddy, check http://www.domparison.com to compare fees. To capitalize on the media scrutiny, NameCheap.com is offering .com domain transfers for $4.99 with a $1 charity donation using promo code BYEBYEGD.
