WRT killjulianassange.com, killassange.com and godaddy

Posted 2011-01-10

[UPDATE 2011-01-13 12:30 CET Trying to get at the domain owner of killassnge.com via domainsbyproxy in seperate post]

[UPDATE 2011-01-12 18:20 CET: killassange.com seems to have no DNS entry ATM, therefore not resolving. Success?]

[UPDATE 2011-01-11 21:54 CET: killassange.com and killjulianassange.com both up and running, no reply from godaddy so far]

[UPDATE 2011-01-11 11:44 CET: Seems the domain julianassangemustdie.com has been deleted by its owner. See Godaddy WHOIS entry]

[UPDATE 2011-01-11 11:33 CET: Seems killjulianassange is down ATM. Could be simple change though.]

[UPDATE: I send an updated mail with the doamin julianassangemustdie.com added and clarified some aspects. New version reproduced here, old version archived in this same post.

I have just sent this mail to abuse@godaddy.com and urge you to do the same:

Dear Godaddy,

as instructed by your twitter account, I hereby request to check if the domain names registered by godaddy on behalf of your customers

  • killassange.com
  • killjulianassange.com
  • julianassangemustdie.com

are in violation of your terms of use.

In my personal opinion they are in violation of your terms of use as stipulated at

http://www.godaddy.com/Agreements/ShowDoc.aspx?pageid=TOU&ci=20801&app_hdr=0

more specifically 4 iv which I partly quote verbatim here:

  • Promotes, encourages or engages in hate speech, hate crime, terrorism, violence against people, animals, or property, or intolerance of or against any protected class;

Therefore I kindly request to take the appropriate action and inform the owner of these domains about your findings.

I also kindly request to be informed of the outcome in the next 14 days.

I will continue to check if these domain names are active and which content is hosted.

I have published this email on my blog at

WRT killjulianassange.com, killassange.com and godaddy

I would like to publish your response at the same place, as my readers and twitter/identi.ca followers have indicated their interest in the resolution of this issue.

Should you not want to see your reply published, please explicitly state that in your reply.

Kind regards,

Jan Wildeboer
