Citizens Against Government Waste - a fair democratic organization and good cause,
I am sure.
Did all your one million members and supporters voting on this, fully
understand all the implications of giving proposal support?
Quote "For example,
the average cost to obtain a domain name has fallen from approximately $70 for two
years to less than $15 per year."
The decrease in the price for registration is
not lead by VeriSign.
Quote "VeriSign has pledged a substantial infrastructure
investment of $200 million"
Two simple questions for you:
Do you consider all
these moneys paid out to be a bribe?
Who do you think will end up paying this $200
million - with interest (and profit) added?
The "continued stability of the Internet"
is despite VeriSign and ICANN - not because of it.
Just look at the mess that will
come about with Idealab (new.net) bringing out 20 imitation TLDs - due to ICANN holding
up any new TLDs this last decade.
Just look at ICANN bringing out new TLD in conflict
with one already running.
Have you any idea what is happening?
