PETA Moves Domains from Go Daddy to Register.com

The strategy of keeping the small minority of haters riled up makes sense, but from the comments on the Mashable post regarding this, I think a good portion of the ambivalent middle that this reaches will also be riled up. Like you mentioned, Andrew, I think a some of the outrage comes from the fact that elephants aren’t scary to most people. Sure, they can cause great damage, but I wouldn’t have a flight reaction if I saw one at a distance. I had a similar reaction while watching the Sarah Palin reality show where she hunts wildlife in the Alaskan wilderness. I’m sure what she killed on the show was eaten, but it was all so ridiculously contrived to appeal to her base, that something just seemed off. I got the same empty feeling when I saw the villagers with GoDaddy hats (though it was less).
