Blake Irving, The Absolute Bloody Bane Of GoDaddy, Is Leaving — GRBR, Good Riddance Of Bad Rubbish!

I was complaining about Blake ‘bloody’ Irving 3.5 years ago. Click image to access my post on this blog.


Blake Irving DESTROYED GoDaddy for its loyal customers such as I.

Blake Irving set out to ruthlessly rape the GoDaddy customer base so as to make his sacrosanct numbers look good. Under Blake Irving GoDaddy lied to and cheated us, the customers — took away products we previously had, reneged on offers we had previously accepted.

Blake Irving decimated GoDaddy’s once legendary Customer Support.

Blake Irving treated GoDaddy’s customer base as if we were DIRT.

Blake Irving should have been fired a long time ago because he was a curse on GoDaddy.

How GoDaddy founder, ex-Marine Bob Parsons put up with Blake Irving for this long is a mystery.

Bob Parsons was THE MAN. During his time GoDaddy was such a joy to work with. Blake Irving destroyed all of that. Blake Irving was a plague on GoDaddy.

I became a GoDaddy customer in 1998 or 1999. So, I have been with them a long time. I knew them well. There was a time I had over 30 GoDaddy products. Right now I am migrating MY LAST Web hosting account away from them. That is how bad things have become.

I am so glad and relieved that Blake Irving is living. Though nobody is saying so I think he was pushed.

Yes, yes, yes, the GoDaddy stock has done well BUT I think that there might be elements of Wells Fargo in their numbers!

Blake Irving achieved stock price success by screwing the customers.

Investors and customers are not the same group of people.

I bet that most of the investors are NOT customers nor employees.

I doubt whether Scott Wagner will be any better.

I am surprised that Bob Parsons does not appear to have any kids who could have taken over. I would have thought he fathered a few dozen, on both sides of the sheets. C’est la vie.

Wow, coming back from Concord yesterday I could NOT believe the amount of foliage I was seeing. We are still in August. Yikes — in that this means the nights are going start getting cold, soon. Then the snow.

The foliage will keep on getting better and better and I will keep on posting more and more pictures. Enjoy.

Superman vs KKK — “Clan Of The Fiery Cross” (On YouTube).

by Anura Guruge


I am indebted to my onetime papal collaborator, fellow author Dr. David Tschanz, for bringing this to my attention during an e-mail dialogue we were having about Catholic organizations and the KKK — in light of the recent events in Charlottesville, VA and Boston.


OK. Let’s start with the 1st YouTube episode.


Here are two article you should read for background.

David sent me the first of these from “Dangerous Minds“. It made scintillating reading. I was hooked.

Click on each to access the original.



The protagonist who made this Superman vs KKK series possible was Stetson Kennedy (1916 – 2011). Not a relative from what I can see.

Check him, i.e., Stetson Kennedy, out. A real neat character. Here is his Website which includes a library of KKK Documents.
