After the GoDaddy SOPA boycott, why is GoDaddy being advertised on Stack Overflow?

Stack Overflow is showing advertisements from GoDaddy - with their support of SOPA, it seems more appropriate to not accept their advertising business, no?

    This was brought up earlier today at Will Stack Overflow boycott GoDaddy because of their support for SOPA?; not sure if this post was inspired by that one or if it's just a coincidence.

    Well, clearly we have to honour prior commercial agreements we have. I have alerted the team and we will deal with this in due course.

    Advertising for GoDaddy has increased over the past few weeks, rather than decreased - that doesn't sound like honoring prior commercial agreements. May 20, 2012 at 23:10
