Dear Robert Parson aka Bob Parson, please come back!!!

Since the update GoDaddy Auctions made to their domain names listings on their auctions page, I’ve spend less time on their site searching for expired domain names.
I’ve mentioned over and over how important GD Auctions is to our community. Majority of us buy and sell domain names that are worth no more than $10-$100 dollars. We buy Reg Fee domain names for most part due to the fact that we can’t afford to make larger investments.
The worst thing that could possibly happen to a Domainer who relies on GoDaddy Auctions has occurred and the people responsible are out of touch with reality. I emailed GoDaddy Executives directly and requested an explanation to why they removed the most important instant Domaining tool on their page “Advance Search Tool”.
Took them 7 days to reply back to tell me in one short paragraph that their customers are happy and so are we! Customers? The last I checked, Domainers purchase a lot of domain names from your company and not a single intelligent, experienced, smart Domainer is happy with your new changes. The use of multi-tasking and multi-searching for domain names is not an instant option anymore!
I should not have to leave the page or reload settings, or apply more changes on a new page to search for expired domain names. The user-friendly advanced search tool is not accessible instantly! I use to spend an average of 40-75 minutes daily on GoDaddy Auctions searching for expired domain names using my pre-defined saved search settings to load up my daily list of expired domain names. I use to also make secondary instant changes to the pre-defined search list based on keywords, age, extensions, etc. I shouldn’t have to reload the page, click on a link for a pop up window to display the Advanced Search Tool. This new update is time consuming and not good for business in my opinion; I went from 40+ minutes of activity searching for domain names to 20 minutes or less now! I spend less time searching for domain names because I can’t apply secondary changes to the Advanced Search Tool instantly. I don’t have the time to wait for a page to load up 50 times every time I want to apply a new change to my search.
I’m spending less time on GoDaddy and anyone with corporate smarts will tell you that’s not good for business!
Dear President of GoDaddy Auctions can you please explain to the world and to our community how you figure the new changes are praised by your customers? In your email you didn’t have the courtesy to explain in detail why you turned the clock backwards on all of us. Don’t you understand the importance of being able to instantly access and make changes to the Advanced Search Tool? Doesn’t anyone in your department buy domain names like the rest of us? Do you not understand why it’s important to have your Advanced Search Tool available on all pages without having to click on a thousand links to access it? Do I need to remind your people that simplicity goes further in life and business?
Dear Robert Parson aka Bob Parson, whats happening to GoDaddy? Since you sold your site, the company has made some bizarre changes. From a facelift to a sex change to turning the clock back on Advanced Domain Name Searching, GoDaddy is heading in the wrong direction!
Whoever is on top of the food chain at GoDaddy Auctions needs to reverse the damage. Either bring back the Instant Advanced Search Tool or lose customers/revenue. It’s that simple!
Until my next Domaining Article, Happy Domaining!
