Is GoDaddy Blocking Domain Transfers After the SOPA Boycott?

A few days ago thousands of customers turned against domain registrar GoDaddy for their support of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA).

Transfer requests for thousands of domains were started, and even big players such as Wikipedia threatened to move.

In a response, GoDaddy was quick to drop their support for SOPA (but not really), and the company kindly asked customers to come back.

Many customers were nevertheless determined to move to other registrar, but that presented a new problem.

It turns out that GoDaddy is delaying a significant number of the domain transfers for reasons unknown. GoDaddy competitor Namecheap suggests that the transfers are blocked on purpose — via redwolf.newsvine.com
