While trying to transfer this domain yesterday (voteorshutup.org) to dreamhost from godaddy, I followed the instructions as given on dreamhost's site to do the transfer. Unlock domain, set DNS records to ns1.dreamhost.com etc. and setup the hosting account on dreamhost.
I then initiated the transfer with the auth codes and everything.
Everything went fine and worked properly and the DNS change was allowing me to host through dreamhost until the transfer had finished. I could FTP in, do everything I needed to do.
Today, it appears as if the domain has been redirected somewhere. No one has access to my acct. and the godaddy acct information still has the nameserver as ns1.dreamhost.com (a whois will confirm that).
I haven't yet approved the full registration transfer from godaddy.com because I'm not sure if doing that will permanently have the site redirected to wherever its going now.
(I've also e-mailed support and requested a callback, but in the interim wanted to check the knowledge of the forum)
