GoDaddy and auto renewing domains

I bought a domain last year and I don’t even use it.  I forgot I had it set to auto renew… I mean it’s on by default so I guess it’s my fault for not turning it off.  Anyway, I received a charge for like around the normal price of a domain name.  I was thinking to myself, what costs that much since I didn’t charge anything.  I go to look in my GoDaddy e-mails and find out that my domain name that I bought last year just auto renewed itself.  Damnit, pwned.
