Verisign is touting a 48 million usage number for SiteFinder as an
"internet approval" for their service. If VDOT closed the normal
commuter lanes on I95 and routed all traffic up the HOV lanes, could
they then claim 48 million usage "approval" for the HOV lanes? Their
claim is bogus.

Verisign also seeks to restrict the public discussion of SiteFinder to
the purview of the mostly ignorant public that only uses the internet
for HTTP browsing. Verisign's actions broke many more internet protocols
than HTTP and Verisign wants to exclude this fact from the public

I believe that Verisign's continued belligerence in this matter is
enough to warrant the removal of their authority as a manager of TLDs.
The TLDs are a public trust of international scope. Verisign has broken
that trust. They did it in the name of corporate greed in an attempt to
create an all-roads-lead-to-Verisign monopoly.

Please revoke Verisign's authority to manage any TLDs. Please, also set
up a not-for-profit institution to manage these TLDs. I don't beleive
that it is in the international/public interest to have ICANN fight this
fight again in a few years with another for-profit company.

At stake is the internet infrastructure. The problem is Verisign. Please
remove the problem.
