Subject: Of course, VeriSign encourages this abuse...


                You say "Such examples are commercial companies that register
their name in every possible TLD.  This is an abuse of the system and
should be stopped."

I don't disagree, but last time I visited NSI/VeriSign, when you wanted to register, it also tried to encourage you to register and

I'm sure lots of people bought into the NSI marketing-speak (how dare they sell "web addresses"? sheesh) and registered .org because NSI encouraged them to; so NSI/VeriSign/ICANN is responsible for a part of the abuse that they're now complaining about.
