To Whom It May Concern --
In consideration of VeriSign's hijacking of DNS by its Wildcard "Service," briefly:
1. VeriSign took unilateral action, without consultation of affected parties. This is IRRESPONSIBLE.
2. The reasoning behind this action is self-promotion, which abuses the trust ICANN, and by extension the public, has given them. This is GREED.
3. This action sets a dangerous precedent of replacing useful error information with blatant and useless advertising. As a user, this tells me of a mistake I made, which I can take steps to fix myself... keeping the session under my control. VeriSign removes my control. This is UNACCEPTABLE.
I ask for proceedings against VeriSign to determine sanctions and possible removal of their concession.
