It was expected, so if you’re upset, perhaps it’s time to understand that just like “Fight Club“, the first rule of the game is not to talk about it.
Those that discovered the weakness, hole or lack of thought in the GoDaddy Groupon process, decided to share it with thousands of others.
When you pick a penny from the register to supplement your bill at the grocery store, that’s one thing. When thousands decide to pick quarters and dollars, that’s another.
Playing by the rules is the basic rule in life, and spare me the drivel about how not playing by the rules gets you ahead of the game. I don’t need to hear unethical blab.
The GoDaddy Groupon codes are being reversed, as we speak; as long as you used more than one for your post-Christmas domainpalooza. There is a reason why the Groupon PDF has terms and conditions on it, it’s not just so that you can game the system.
And yet, even at this point when it’s evident that GoDaddy is actually reversing the multi-Groupon credits, some fools are advising others to create new GoDaddy accounts to apply the codes that are deemed invalid. Just how soon will GoDaddy close that window as well, I’m not sure.
Human greed and gullibility both start with the letter ‘G’. So does GoDaddy and Groupon.
