Don't play games with .com , Extend the contract
.com is vital to my business and many others. Extend the contract, don't play games. Don't let companies that do premium pricing mess it up. Don't let companies with conflicts of interest mess it up. Don't let incompetent companies mess it up. Don't believe other companies would ever reduce the price. No company throws away money. The entire concept of a company voluntarily giving money away is ridiculous.
