I strongly encourage ICANN to view Verisign's actions for what they really 

a monopoly directly defying ICANN's authority over the .com/.net domains,

and a company driven by marketing, outside professional IT world be

My company has ceased all business relations with Verisign due to their 
inept registrations of our domains.  All of our certs have been switched 
to non-Verisign companies.  We've ceased all relations with that company 
and have not looked back.  We've also implemented the ISC Bind patches to 
enforce a delegation-only status on the .com and .net domains.  Verisign's 
actions breach the trust of the Internet members that rely on the basic 
services Verisign has a contract to provide.  Verisign's repeated 
indifference to the sanctity and reliabilty of the Internet is more than 
enough reason for their customers to drop Verisign services in a mass 
exodus.  I believe it is more than enough justification to terminate their 
contract and award it to a non-profit "trustworthy" institution.  I 
strongly recommend that course of action.  Marketing can not be allowed to 
drive a major change to DNS infrastructure.
