I've seen the occasional domain lost but not attributed to any one registrar, and almost always some negligence was involved somewhere by the owner. However, my point is that I've done enough long-term business with them (and with other registrars), I don't need to search for rare exceptions since exceptions are called exceptions for a reason...

GoDaddy is perhaps the prime "stay away" example.
A few instances of a lost domain isn't a prime example of a company to completely avoid, it just isn't. It isn't about today, been using them since roughly 2002 or whenever they came on the scene.

BTW, that article you posted is also BS based on my actual experience, not to mention, domains that expire must stay in limbo for 45 days IIRC after the expiration so someone isn't telling the entire story.
