Godaddy.com, Bob Parson, Mark, Aaron, & Todd Cluff In The Presidents Office Godaddy hosts for free internet predator sites belonging to cyber-bully/stalker Rose Marie Zizzo's websites, refuses to honor their own Terms of Service, Scottsdale Arizona
I have several domains registered with Godaddy.com, and they are also hosted there as well for the last several years. I pay for these sites. Rose Marie Zizzo and all of her cat breeder bashing, internet predator, cyper-bullying/stalker websites that she uses to defame, extort, bash, trash, harass, embarrass, harm, abuse, threaten, slander or harass third parties, ruin and lie about cat breeders are hosted for FREE on Godaddy.com. All subjects listed as unacceptable in their terms of service.
She has bought up domains using our business names and has put up defaming websites and makes sure they are placed on the search engines right next to the owners business, destroying their reputation. Godaddy has no problem selling her these domains, and when notified, they see nothing wrong with this disturbing practice and her copyright infringement. And she offers on her website to do it for others as well, naming Godaddy as her co-conspirator in this deceptive practice, claiming she will buy and register using their service to do so, and will host it there as well.
Many of us that are the victims of this internet predator on all of her sites located at
pedigree-cat-buyers-public-alert.info (another new one)
have written to Godaddy on many occasions complaining about the abuse suffered at her hands. She also steals our copyrighted material along with all of the above listed offenses. Godaddy required us to jump through all of their hoops to make these complaints, their specific form letter, online registered signature, proof of copyrighted material, etc, and then they did nothing. But several weeks prior this illiterate woman sent a copyright claim in about my website, it was down in minutes while she provided NO proof that anything of hers was actually on the site. I had to file a counter claim and promise to appear in court in Arizona if she filed. Although none of that was required for her claim. After waiting 21 days for her to respond, my website was finally restored.
Ms. Zizzo on a daily basis writes terrible defaming lies about me and others on her website, does not provide any proof that anything she is publishing is based in fact, continues to send many threatening emails a day, puts everything I do up on her website, along with maps to my home, my unlisted phone number, my address, stolen pictures of me and my family from website, stolen emails. She then demands to be paid for this harassment to stop. She has also stalked everyone I know, posting lies about them and their businesses, threats to ruin them if they do not do as she demands, on her website, just to get back at me.
All of this is very distressing and life altering.
She has been sued in court for harassment and we provided a copy of the lawsuit to Godaddy. She violates their terms of service on every level, listed on this page of their website;

Here is the response we get every time:
Our Office of the President has responded to your request, details of which are described below:
Office of the President Response
Dear Melanie Lowry:
We are very sorry for the alleged harassment that Ms. Zizzo has put you through and understand your concern. However, our office and our Abuse Department have both reviewed these issues and our position remains the same, as quoted below:
As a hosting provider, we cannot be expected to judge the alleged illegal activities you have mentioned. However, we are more than happy to quickly comply with any court-issued order or official request by law enforcement (whose burden it is to determine the existence of illegal activities). We regularly work with courts and law enforcement from the local to the international level. As a result, we would recommend you seek an injunction from a court as the most efficient way to handle this situation.
Please understand that GoDaddy.com's terms and condition give us the authority, but not the obligation, to take action. Because the same content may be construed by some as truth and others as libel or defamation, GoDaddy.com defers all judgment of website content to courts of competent jurisdiction which are empowered to make such determinations. We make no claim of truthfulness of the site's content, nor are we affiliated with the site(s) in any way other than the customer reserves web space on our servers. As previously stated, we do not have the responsibility or the authority to determine which actions constitute illegal activities. If, indeed, the actions are illegal, we will take down the site(s) when we receive a court order to do so. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
Please let us know if there are other matters with which we can be of assistance.
If Godaddy cannot or will not protect it's own customers how can any one else feel safe!
We have forwarded all the threatening emails, where she claims to know mobsters, wishing us dead, promising to destroy our business if we do not pay her, threatening to destroy anyone who associates with me.
She is a terrorist, and her tactics are clear.
Here is her latest;
The 1 cat breeder listed, Xxx PXXXXXX ofXXXXXXXXXXX. are now bad cat breeders because of their association with Melanie Lowry and her new breeder listing site. Our sources also reported that this breeder is a newie and has purchased cats from Ms Lowry and is friends with Ms Lowry. So Tshe will be forever destroyed on the www
They actually think this is ok.
Why do they NOT honor their own terms of service?
Read all the other complaints on here about Godaddy.com, they are not someone you want to do business with.
All the other providers that Ms. Zizzo hosted her sites on were appalled and immediately recognized the abuse and extortion she practiced and her sites were taken down immediately, why can't Godaddy see it and do the right thing?
Internet Predation is coming to the for front, hopefully soon we will be able to hold these hosts responsible.
Be very careful when dealing with these internet predator hosts, they care nothing for anyone's well being, identity theft or anything else. They even ignored our complaint to the Scottsdale Better Business Bureau and refused to do anything.
Godaddy puts my life and business at risk, along with those of my friends and associates.
Shame on you Godaddy, everyone else can see it, why can't you?.
I am demanding that you do something to protect us, and stop promoting internet terrorism and predation.
ENFORCE YOUR OWN TERMS OF SERVICE!
