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 discussion. 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. Phil Moors Systems Manager RCI Group, Inc.
