Remove the Super Bowl 2015 Commercial

As someone who feels incredibly strong about animal rights, I am extremely offended by this commercial. If you feel the same, let Go Daddy know by signing this petition, posting to their social media sites, and/or by creating a petition of your own. Whether or not this was meant to be satirical, it's offensive. Essentially, Go Daddy is encouraging private breeding/puppy mills while shelter animals wait patiently for their forever homes or worse - to be euthanized. They are also encouraging purchasing an animal online; the animal could be sold to someone who runs a fighting ring, someone who abuses animals, or to someone who cannot adequately care for the animal. Animal rights are no laughing matter and to portray them as such is cruel and irresponsible.

Petitioning Theresa May,,, ReliableHosting, Go Daddy

Stop from operating-A website where users can rate their experiences with prostitutes, who appear to be under-aged girls, trafficking victims & victims of rape #shutdownpunternet is an unregulated website where punters* can submit reviews of their encounters with prostitutes. Many of the women being reviewed appear to be underage, victims of trafficking and victims of rape. The website encourages punters to report women who appear to be trafficked, but when the website owner was asked what PunterNet has in place to ensure that trafficking is reported effectively; he failed to respond.  *Punter=A person who visits a prostitute To reiterate: I respect the right for a woman to do what she wants to do and I respect the right of a woman to work in the sex industry. I believe that a woman working in the sex industry should be able to make a platform for herself  and that no one should create that platform for her and scrutinise her in any way.  A large number of quotes  suggest that the women being reviewed are under-age: "I like nothing more than a young and 'under-worked' body and f***y and this does not usually cause any problems through inexperience", victims of trafficking: "she was just too inexperienced and unskilled, coupled with a crap attitude. After seeing the very cute Consuello the previous week (from the same stable), I had hoped for better. There seems to be a group of early twenties Spanish girls being rotated around the country on this well-known listing website, as the girls appear in Sheffield, Norwich, Peterborough, Derby, Nottingham etc" and victims of rape: "I went straight for sex, she was completely unresponsive, even complained about pain as I am too big (which I hope to be, but i'm not) I managed to finish, just to have my money's worth".  Signing this petition will help to stop the expansion of a network that puts women in danger, " He had the attitude that he could pummel the girl for as long and as many times as he wanted within an hour (not caring wether he hurt her or not)". Many of those who use the website are unable to recognise the signs of women being coerced into prostitution, "I asked for a rubber put it on and went in. She didn't enjoy what was happening and had her face all screwed up and eyes tight shut". The website promotes a mob mentality of acceptance to pay for the right to be violent to women, "She seemed to be perspiring and quite agitated, but I was not now going to stop until I came". Its existence open doors so that other Punters know which women they get away with abusing more easily.  The petition alongside a large list of quotes indicating rape, trafficking and under age prostitution were sent to David Cameron's office. The Home office replied and decided not to "ban the advertising of sexual services" and where a website is thought to be acting illegally they "would expect the police to investigate and the Crown Prosecution Service, where appropriate to prosecute". PunterNet is unlike any other sexual service provider because PROSTITUTES ARE NOT ADVERTISING THEMSELVES – PUNTERS ARE ADVERTISING THE PROSTITUTES AND EXPOSING THOSE THAT APPEAR TO BE UNDER-AGE, VULNERABLE AND VICTIMS OF TRAFFICKING. THIS MAKES IT EASY FOR THESE VULNERABLE WOMEN TO BE FOUND, USED, HARMED AND RAPED; WITH VISIBLE DETAILS OF THEIR LOCATIONS AND CONTACT NUMBERS. THERE IS ALSO NO AGE RESTRICTION UPON ENTRY INTO THE WEBSITE AND REPORTS ARE SUBMITTED ANONYMOUSLY, MEANING THAT SOME PERPETRATORS OF VIOLENCE CAN NEVER BE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE.   This response is despite the controversial direct field reports that were sent in the original letter to David Cameron's office:   WARNING: Reports contain language that certain readers may find offensive    Evidence of violence:  In response to negative feedback a working girl writes, "You wanted to stick your finger all the way up my bum which is not comfortable for me. It's also not comfortable the way you tried to stick your fingers up the other place either in a non gentle manner. " Working girl in response to negative feedback: " it was too painful for me and I couldn't persuade you to alter things." Punter: "The agency then said even though I'm a regular and a good client, I won't get even 1% of the money back and went on saying she is hurt, she is bleeding and need to go to the hospital..LOL.." Punter: "She seemed to be perspiring and quite agitated, but I was not now going to stop until I came. This happened about five minutes later and once I had come, she got off me and left the room. "   Evidence of trafficking? Punter: "she was either drunk or on drugs. I'm no doctor and she may have had a medical condition for all I know, but she was very vacant with eyes rolling and then involuntary body movements. All whilst looking off into space. Breathing deeply and not being able to sit or stand still."  Punter: ""******'s purple site profile was authored by the same guy who has written a number of other misleading profiles on Thai 'indies.... Several other Thai 'indies' with similar profiles also have rooms in the same building and since the author also runs a second-rate London oriental agency, I have to wonder just how independent they are." Punter: " the girl seemed distinctly contemplative, almost with a resigned felt palpably like a violation rather than a service....She is not linguistically proficient and I shared no foreign language in which I could converse with her.  I may well have misread the girl or perhaps she is being forced into this prestigious industry by outside agencies. I saw no physical signs of enforcement or abuse. I am, however, very naive about such events and would be unsure to comprehend any signs, if I were to be confronted by them." Punter: ""I have come to the realisation, at great expense, that these Polish girls are verging on being scams. They are run by faceless pimps that want the girls in and out of your room or home as quick as possible so that they can drive them to their next booking (they advertise as covering a lot of areas around London). I wouldn't go as far as saying they indulge in human trafficking but to them the girls ARE easily replaceable commodities" Punter: "Guys, you need to stay clear of this woman, for the sake of your wallet, but also for her sake, as she’s clearly as cut out for her chosen profession as a dolphin is for stock car racing. I even entertained the possibility that she was being coerced into her non-chosen career, and briefly considered calling an 0800 number to report possible trafficking." Evidence of underage girls: Punter: "******** was a bit too mechanical for my liking, just went through a routine ending with doggy and her going uh uh and watching the TV. This is not the place for a girl of this age" Punter: "OK, I like nothing more than a young and 'under-worked' body and f**ny - and this does not usually cause any problems, through inexperience." Punter: It’s a bit like being with someone’s teenage daughter…if you like hot young bodies Punter: "the complete and utter lack of any sort of technique/charm/sexual allure evidenced by this young lady in the bedroom as you suck, tug and thrash away to your inevitable climax. It is like you have entered a sexual black hole, which sucks all the desire out of you and propels it a billion miles in the other direction" Punter: If you want to try a fresh, young (says she is 18) and pretty girl is ok, but maybe as she just started to work, is quite passive, scarcely kiss without tongue, doesn't want to be kissed on the neck or ears...She really can't speak a work of english (is romenian) Evidence of women with health problems: Punter: Has quite a few self inflicted cuts on her left arm, said she had 'stuff' in her head when she was younger. Punter: "She complained she was cold, yet it was a lovely late summer/early autumn evening and quite balmy outside. I think she was stoned as she sounded woozy, looked sleepy and very nonchalant." Punter: "one looked as if she was on drugs, the other was just abit more up for it, went for her." Punter: "She looked spaced out, drugs or drink possibly. She also asked me if I did drugs which was a bad sign. "   Will you help me to: ●Stop an unregulated website where a large number of women are being reviewed by Punters without their consent. ●Stop the locations and telephone numbers of alleged under-age girls and trafficking victims being displayed 24/7.

Pull Puppy Super Bowl Ad immediately

Its irresponsible advertising, its promoting puppy mills and selling puppies on the internet. Promoting the practice of driving with pets in the back of a pickup, its offensive to all the rescues, responsible breeders and animal lovers around the world.

Remove the Super Bowl 2015 Commercial

Your opinions matter to us. And we listened. We previewed GoDaddy’s Super Bowl spot, featuring a puppy named Buddy, on a popular talk show and, shortly after, we heard from you on that you did not like the ad. As such, we decided to immediately pull the ad in question. Now that the Super Bowl is over, we wanted to make sure to let you, the signers of the petition, know about our action. We’ve made a tremendous amount of progress over the past two years, advancing the GoDaddy brand as a company that cares a great deal about small business and is in their corner to help them succeed. People increasingly know who we are, what we do, and who we do it for. At the end of the day, our purpose at GoDaddy is to help small businesses around the world build a successful online presence. We hoped our ad would increase awareness of that cause. However, we underestimated the emotional response. And, we heard that loud and clear. The net result? We pulled the ad from the Super Bowl, and you may have seen our new commercial, which focused squarely on our customer, the small business owner. Finally, rest assured, Buddy came to us from a reputable and loving breeder in California. He’s now part of the GoDaddy family as our Chief Companion Officer and he lives permanently with one of our longtime employees. Thanks again for expressing your concerns.
