No Go Daddy!

How GoDaddy Suspended my Cash Parking Account


Godaddy V Father Dave Round 3

Round 3

I decided that I needed to clarify the situation and find out exactly what I had been accused of. The idea that I was being accused of a crime without being given any chance to defend myself seemed to undermine the fundamental principals of justice that underly civilised society. Moreover, a person in my situation needs to be particularly aware of their reputation, as false rumours and slanderous accusations could spell the end of my work.

I thought I'd also include Google in the query, as Godaddy had encouraged me to do so. I didn't receive any acknowledgement of my query from Google, but I figured that my issue was never really with them anyway.

Thank you for your reply.

I will indeed follow this up further with Google, but I must confess that I am disappointed by your response.

It appears that I have been found guilty of a crime that impinges significantly upon my reputation as an Episcopal priest of high moral standing within the community yet I am being given no recourse so as to establish my innocence and clear my good name.

Of course I have neither the means nor the desire to dispute your terms and conditions, but please clarify for me that I have understood correctly:

  1. 1. I have been found guilty of conducting fraudulent activity on my account

  2. 2. As punishment, my account has been cancelled and my earnings have been withheld.

  3. 3. I am not permitted to defend myself against these accusations

Thank you. A simple 'yes' will suffice to confirm that I have understood the situation.

Two days later I received this 'response' - a response that didn't even attempt to answer a single one of my questions:
