Submission + - GoDaddy pulls site after MySpace complains

gellenburg writes: "From Declan McCullagh and CNet:

MySpace demanded that GoDaddy pull the plug on, which hosts some 250,000 pages of mailing list archives and other resources, because a list of thousands of MySpace usernames and passwords was archived on the site. GoDaddy claims its customers own about 18 million domains.

GoDaddy complied. In a move that owner Fyodor Vaskovich said happened with no prior notice, the company deleted his domain name — causing his site to be effectively unreachable for about seven hours on Wednesday until he found out what was happening and removed the password list.

The explanation requiring the fewest assumptions is the most likely to be correct. -- William of Occam
