To whom it may concern:

  I am a computing professional with well over 25 years of experience in 
industry, academia, and research science; I have created four Internet domains, 
including designing and implementing domain name services.

  I consider Verisign's decision to implement the TLD wildcard to be proof that 
their current management are unsuited to playing such an important role in the 
global Internet infrastructure as .COM and .NET registrars.

  Making such a major change in the DNS should have been done with the full 
participation of the majority of nameserver operators, and an open discussion, 
if such a change should be implemented at all.  Verisign's unilateral and 
basically careless approach to the matter shows that their greed far outstrips 
their understanding of the importance of stable, predictable service.

  Thank you for allowing the Internet community at large to comment on this 
matter.  I hope you will consider permanently replacing Verisign at the 
possible opportunity, to discourage further behaviour of this sort.
