Bob Parsons, the owner of GoDaddy.com, has taken to shooting elephants in Africa citing that they are a threat to the crops of local villagers. PETA has countered that there are more humane ways of dealing with this issue than killing an ever encroached upon species. Many accuse Parsons of pleasure hunting under the guise of humanitarian efforts. You can judge for yourself in the video above.
The 538 Refugees domain has to date been maintained by Go Daddy. In light of Parsons’s actions, we will transfer our domains as soon as practicable. We can not, in good conscience, support a company that engages in such barbaric practices.
This brings us an opportunity to discuss the issue. What do you think?
