Don't get me wrong, I dislike GoDaddy. But let's not jump the gun on these things.
"Please let me explain the transfer mechanism in order to make it more clear. On the first stages of the transfer process our system needs to obtain the full domain contact information from the old registrar. Their system should provide us with the full Whois data on the domain automatically in order for us to start the Verification process and be able to proceed with the transfer initiation. Currently Godaddy blocks our IP addresses and does not provide our system with the full contact information (they are not disclosing the email addresses listed with domains), thus we need to gather this data manually"
I do a whois and get all the information, apparently they don't.
I understand not wanting to jump to conclusions but I trust GoDaddy about as far as I can throw the elephants that their CEO shoots...
