To whom it may concern:
I don't understand how you can give Verisign indefinite control over the
registry without a formal bidding process.  What happened to ICANN's
principles? Did they fly out the window when ICANN can justify their
budget with the outrageous ICANN tax?

The proposed .com renewal contract should be reworked to reflect the
Internet community's concerns. The gTLD namespaces are a public trust;
no registry operator, including VeriSign, should be given indefinite
control over them, especially one as important as .com. VeriSign's
unilateral price increases that are not cost-based and not subject to
approval should not be allowed. All ICANN fees should continue to be
approved by the Internet community. Internet users should not have to
pay an unreasonable "ICANN Tax" or pay more for domain names just to
increase VeriSign's profits.
