I oppose Verisign's proposal to redirect domain lookups which are not found to 
their own, sponsored, search page.  In doing so, they return the WRONG response 
to the query, which is most definately not what they were hired to do.

If a world-wide-web user desires this functionality, a browser can easily be 
configured to provide it.  However, Verisign's actions are not at the end-user 
level.  Their "SiteFinder" service cannot be turned off as easily.
