Well, just because they registered the domain doesn't give them any
obligation to monitor how it's used, nor could they even if they
wanted to. Their only obligation is to point the domain name to a
domain name server.

Unless the sites were being HOSTED by GoDaddy, what do you expect them
to do? It's the hosting company on whose servers the spammers are
operating that has the power to stop them.
