Re: "Obama Truth Team" Orders GoDaddy To Shut Down Web
they are contradicting themselves right here. "We can tell you our terms of service prohibit content or activities designed to defame, embarrass, harm, threaten". when they say " "It would not be a violation of our terms to disagree with a person or organizations politics" now if a politician is doing something wrong or illegal, you can't expose it, or threaten to have them prosecuted if they don't stop?. the person/politician already has defamed, embarassed, harmed themselves, you can't bring that to light?.

All disagreement is not defamation, in fact most isn't.
GoDaddy has a policy which allows people to exercise their freedom of speech within Constitutional bounds.
The Constitution does not protect ALL speech, you can't shout "fire" in a crowded building, you can't defame or slander someone, you can't threaten someone.
GoDaddy is protecting themselves from liability by removing this website (thank the Republicans for laws like the DMCA, SOPA, etc which force hosting companies to remove first and ask questions later). I am sure this guy will have no problem finding a hosting company elsewhere in the world to accept his money. GoDaddy just doesn't want the legal trouble.
