TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:

The Site Finder idea is not new (See 404Advertising.com), but unilaterally
doing it without technical consensus on how to do it, competitive bidding on
who will do it, and a universally accepted use for the resulting income,
makes it look remarkably like an act of theft. And, considering the value of
every possible domain name conceivable, multiplied by VeriSign's current $25
fee, it could be observed as the largest theft in American history. Viewed
in this light, and using historic data, one could reasonably expect VeriSign
to be fined $100 for each such mis-direction (See Eugene Kashpureff
"Hijacks" Internic.net). In any event, whatever you want to call it, it
should indeed be grounds for pulling the government contract as soon
possible. The willingness and ability of Verisign to unilaterally take such
actions without prior approval is (or certainly should be) a breach of the
contract it fulfills for the public.
