I knew Bob Parson ran a c**t of a company, but I didn't realize what a c**t he was until now. Hope some elephants take revenge on him the sick f***er

Re: what a c***

Frankly, it didn't take long for his in your face marketing techniques to really put me off. Of course not offering the product I was looking for didn't help either.

I am actually quite pleased that he has done a Ratner. I am imagine the cartoonist will have a field day with the GoDaddy Logo.

Yeah Ratner came to mind immediately for me as well. But this is worse, far worse. This isn't just "we sell crap", its "we sell you crap so I can go off and shoot elephants with the profits".

Peta can buy him out, with all the profit money they can save a lot of elephants.

Ignoring ethics for a moment, it is exactly the same as Ratner except this was a very profitable business with a guaranteed revenue stream. Ratner was a much more dodgy business proposition than GoDaddy. So poor old Gerald is off the hook now and can at last hand over that garland of thorns.

Protecting villagers crops in Zimbabwe. Pull the other its got bells!

Re: what a c***

Dear Bob, what an ingenious solution to the problem of wildlife damaging crops. Let's kill all the elephants! A multi-billionaire and still a total loser in my books. Now, that's quite an achievement.

Re: what a c***

I'm not against hunting personally. But unless this was a "farm raised" elephant; which it isn't. He is an asshole.

That would be a very bad thing. There are tons of domains/sites that would just be erased from the Internet. While I agree with Peta on many issues. They go way too extreme with others. They'd have us all be vegan if they had their way. I have pointy teeth. I'm a meat eater.

Bob Parsons has to take asshole of the year so far. After all the poaching and illegal sales in Ivory over the years. WTF? Seriously? WTF?

Re: what a c***

I am in no way defending cruelty to animals or actions of Bob Parson but the fact that in some cultures it is ok to hunt animals. This is Africa.. It is a very sad fact but it's not just one elephant that was killed this year, this one in particular was shot by a North American, white man in Africa who happens to own one of the largest internet companies on the planet. I think PETA would make noise if it was a dead wild coyote shot in Bob's backyard. On the other hand, Bob should have taken more precaution when posting something like this for the world to see. He already knows he's rich, one day he'll have to realize he's famous.

Those domains that will get erased from the internet, would it realy be a bad thing? I mean I am all for free speech, but i am concerned about what my unborn children will be able to access on the internet. Some of the thing that we have access to now are really concerning. These things are just better out of sight and out of mind.

Re: what a c***

Parsons and the PETA spokesperson were just on the news. Parsons was arrogant as he posed with his big gun atop the dead elephant (wasn't even a very big elephant mind you).

Seems Parsons says he was "saving" the villagers crops from the ravaging elephants and thru his action has saved the entire village from potential "starvation".

Geez....with Bob Parsons millions seems it would have been more humane to:
1) Build a fence around the crops
2) Go with a tranquilizer gun and relocate the elephant(s).
3) Take 1/100th of 1% of his wealth and buy the small village a lifetime supply of food.

Bob Parsons you got NO excuses.

Yes, yes it would. But I so love their idea of renaming fish as "seakittens".

I was taught as a boy to never shoot anything you didn't intend to eat.

Trophy animal hunting as opposed to hunting an animal for food are two totally different things. And yes, peta would have them both banned along with fishing.

So while I agree that the fur industry and chicken industry are bad, among other industries. I only see one difference between buying meat at a store versus hunting for it. It's called "Clear conscience," in the fact you are paying someone to do the killing for you. And if you've ever been to a slaughterhouse, it's not pretty.

They can keep their seakittens. I'll still catch and eat catfish.

Re: what a c***

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) group said in a statement:

"Parsons is hiding behind the lame claim that killing elephants helps farmers in Africa whose crops are damaged by the animals. In fact, there are ample effective and nonlethal methods to deter elephants. Instead of coming up with flimsy excuses for killing these highly intelligent and social animals, Parsons should use his wealth to fund humane solutions to human/elephant conflicts."

Change.org has set up an online petition stating, "If Parsons truly wants to be a hero, he should donate the thousands of dollars he spent to kill that elephant on his vacation to organizations that are working on humane ways to resolve the problem all year round."

Re: what a c***

I've seen hunts like this on television. Some local access hunting and fishing station.

They had these african safari hunts. Not elephants on this one, but gazelle. Talk about nonsense. They are standing a good couple hundred feet from this huge herd of them. They are all talking in this hush tone, (as if the gazelle can hear them, you know, scare them off.) Three dudes there. It's high noon. They don't have any blinds. And are in an elevated position. There is one holding a binoculars and another with a high-powered gun with sights on a tripod. One just standing there. I mean, what's the point?

Then the guy shoots and hits one and they all go nuts, cheering and whooping as if they did something special. It was unbelievable.

There was literally thousands of them there. ANYONE could have taken a shot WITHOUT sights and WITHOUT a tripod by just pointing the gun in that direction and firing and would've hit one; without knowing anything about a gun. This is what gives hunting a bad name. It is killing just to kill. Not for any purpose. It's a shame.

Bob knows his base.

Re: what a c***

His actions are so crass, that I like many others are not even interested in listening to his arguments or even PETA's. He has just been slung in the Arsehole pile and that is where he will stay.

Re: what a c***

Take the guns off these arseholes, see how much they want to "embrace nature" then. How brave do you have to be to shoot wildlife with a gun, whether elephant or gazelle or ant? Bunch of cowards out to have "fun".

And then gloating over the body of the dead elephant afterwards ... never forgotten Bob, never forgotten. A single elephant is worth a hundred of your soulless existence.

Just my small very basic contribution which will be expanded on within my very limited creative aptitude at least so another record is up there.

Re: what a c***

What I find most shocking is that Ron at DNJ hasn't had anything to say so far, even in reporting the rumour sense, and the Moggie Lover at Ricksblog is silent. To me the whole ASCII crowd are just so far up their own arse, that they live on different planet.
