The first and second paragraphs are sane. The last paragraph gives Go
Daddy the right to capriciously and arbitrarily delete your domain for
any reason they wish ("Morally objectionable activities will include,

I've gone off on a tear about this before: A registrar has a license to
print money. Boilerplate user agreements that leave the user zero recourse
are the standard. I haven't seen a registrar yet that doesn't have this
kind of verbiage completely freeing them from liability for *any* action
taken on a domain registration, including none.
