I've grown up on the Internet for the past 30 years. The fundamental spirit
of openness on the internet has truly changed my perspective about how
large systems and organizations can operate. It is an idealism which has
manifested very well on the world wide web.

As far as I can tell the decision to allow Verisign to operate as a domain
registrar sounds harmful to the price of .com domains.

But the price alone is not as important as the ability for other companies
to operate competitively to offer consumers freedom to choose among many

In this crazy world of capitalism, please play fair. It is unwise to take
Verisign's money in exchange for making them a registrar.

Also, I will be the first to admit that I don't understand all of what's
going on, but the whole thing sounds fishy to me and I don't like it.

ICANN you can do better. Be more open -- like the internet -- AND sustain
yourself. I know you can.
