[wildcard-comments] Verisign is Wrong
In an Article published in E-Week today, the point is clearly made: "VeriSign violated Net custom and procedure when it changed its translation services for the .com and .net domains. Instead of responding to unknown names with "no such address," the company sent users to its own search-and-advertising portal sites as default destinations."
I couldn't agree more. I do take it for granted that the Net remain "a content-neutral, standards-based environment". It is up to me to decide where and how I will do business. Verisign is not behaving as a custodian as E-Week points out and rather than quote anymore, I recommend the article: http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,,1356559,00.asp .
Furthermore I join the writer and applaud your prompt action.
