SiteFinder breaks the Internet. There is an assumed usability 
level of the Internet, and one of the requirements is that, if a 
site doesn't exist, nothing will be returned in response to a 
request. No error message, no "would you like to purchase this web 
address," nothing. By redirecting the user to an active site, the 
functionability of software, and the end ease-of-use by the user 
drops remarkably.

Do not reactivate Verisign SiteFinder. No one wants it back.
