[wildcard-comments] Verisign: Resumption of Wildcard "services"
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1
Verisign has announced their intention to resume their so-called wildcard service. They have been noticed by ICANN this is unacceptable, and that the redirection practice breaks Internet standards in a number of ways. Verisign's wildcard redirection also constitutes mass cyber-squatting, a violation of law. Given these facts, Verisign should have it's contract to manage the .com/.net domains, and any other Internet services it handles, rescinded.
It does not constitute innovation to massively violate established Internet standards. The only obvious service being provided by their actions is to themselves, and to the email spammers who can rest easy knowing that one of the main tools used against their actions is --- at least for a time --- rendered useless.
Since Verisign appears unwilling to fulfill the requirements of their contract, allow some organization more willing to fulfill their obligations assume management of the domains in question.
Sincerely, ~ Charles E. Kinney ~ ckinney4@xxxxxxxxxx
