GoDaddy Boycott Fizzled

It looks like the GoDaddy boycott was a wash. Even though thousands of people deleted or transferred domains away from GoDaddy...twice as many people brought their business to the company. frown

Even though the company notes that it saw "a spike in domain name transfers," it looks like the actual "boycott" day fizzled out. Looking at the results from DailyChanges shows that GoDaddy actually had a strongly positive day, netting 20,748 more domains at the end of the day than the beginning. On transfers alone, there were nearly double the number of transfers in as out (27,843 in to 14,492 out) as well as more new registrations than deleted domains (43,304 new registrations compared to 35,907 deletions).
