I am a registrant of a .com domain name. I find it highly offensive that
ICANN has made itself into a business model where former officials who set
policies allowing domain price increases are then able to profit off of
their past decisions by buying into registrars. I fear my comments will not
matter, because it seems clear that ICANN has become corrupted by a profit
motive that was not supposed to exist.  I hope you return to operating in
the public interest. I included some language from an online form of the
Internet Commerce Association below because I think they have it exactly
right on this issue. Again, please return to being an organization that
helps the public as originally intended.

I am against the proposed price increase to .COM domains.

No one other than Verisign want increases in .COM prices.

The current rate of $7.85 is already far more than justified.

Verisign is merely your manager of the .COM Registry – it has no business
dictating the price.

ICANN is supposed to govern the domain name system in the public interest.
