Title: VeriSign's Net Abuse

I am complaining about the VeriSign NetAbuse of hijacking bad URL requests referred to as "Site Finder".

This repeated abuse of power shows a willful and contemptuous abuse of power and of the public trust.

IMO VeriSign has proven their bad faith time and again, and can no longer be trusted to hold such a critical position as to be the caretaker of the TLD for .com and .net, so they should have their status as a TLD repository and registrar revoked.

This should preclude their ability to sell Network Solutions, or rather it's ability to be a registrar.  If they want to play ball, they need to follow the rules, they should have considered the risk to their investment BEFORE they dabbled in Net Abuse.

Thank You.
