What will it take for you to know this is a bad idea?  When people end
up getting raped and killed??  Or depending on the country, when they
end up getting arrested for speech against their government?  I
already know rape survivors living in fear thinking they will be
exposed because of this new ICANN proposal.  People have the right to
privacy without their lives and their families' lives put in danger
over what they wrote on their sites!!

The entertainment industry have the lawyers already and the money to
subpoena who they want.  Who they're after is only a small percent
compared to the normal everyday person who wants to write without
their lives put in danger.  Laws are already being set into motion in
the United States after what feminists have gone through who were
threatened and SWAT'd.  This will only benefit trolls and stalkers. 
You'll be playing into their hands.

What will be classified as "commercial"?  A site with a Paypal link,
donation link, or ads?  Why aren't people allowed to make money from
their writing?  You're going to sit there and decide people aren't
allowed free speech, aren't allowed to make a bit of money, aren't
allowed privacy, and if they do they should pay with their lives?? 
You will have blood on your hands if this is passed!!  How do you know
many of your family and friends won't be victimized by this new rule??

What will the process be like?  An actual person looking through each
domain to see if it's "commercial"?  If it's done automatically, a
domain can be accidentally labeled "commercial" when it's not.  Will
this effect parked domains?  How do you know there won't be mistakes
when a domain is accidentally labeled "commercial"?

You have no right to play God putting lives in danger because the
entertainment industry wants to go after a small few.

Thank You.
