Subject: Protect the Net...TLDs controlled by one corporation kills free speech


      The TLDs should *not* be private property of any corporation,
specially one that has demonstrated over and over that they are a)
Inefficient b) Greedy and c) The worse at customer care.  It is very
imortant that ICANN does its job properly and maintains the
corporation-independant standing of the TLDs....and by this I mean
that there should be at least 5 or 6 different companies that can sell
TLDs and compete in that space. Monopolies are society's worse
enemies, and monopolies in a communication medium like the Net will
only turn it into a nightmare for all. If VeriSign doesn't like your
content because it bashes them, they take your domain away, if they
get money from Big Corp A, they take your domain because you talk
about Big Corp's not something that we should allow.

Please support free speech and don't do this to the whole world.
