Have you complained to abuse@godaddy with the relevant information?

GD is actually better than a lot of registrars about nuking domain
names registered by spammers; many registrars refuse to do it even
after you notify them of the abuses. GD does get more spammers than
some other registrars due to their low prices. Try filing some abuse
reports first, before you talk about getting them shut down. - Apple Valley, CA - - 888.480.4NET (4638)
