zanek writes "When an ISP that has been with you through thick and thin hits the road, something's wrong. Email Battles gives you the play-by-play on how a single phisher destroyed Go Daddy's relationship with NectarTECH, an ISP that managed over 200 Go Daddy accounts and 600 servers." We saw some news of this story developing over the weekend, but there were a lot of conflicting reports. The Email Battles account has a lot more details and both sides of the story -- though the title is misleading. It wasn't a single phisher that "lost" the account, but some bad decisions on the part of GoDaddy. It still seems worrying that GoDaddy basically completely took down this entire hosting firm over what appears to have been some sort of misunderstanding.
