I am writing to voice my opposition to the proposed amendment that would
allow Verisign the ability to further abuse consumers, and generally
cause harm to the Internet naming system. I am a web consultant, and
developer. I routinely purchase domains for clients, and manage quite a few
domains on clients behalf. Allowing Verisign to implement rampant price
increases over such a long period of time has the potential to cause chaos,
and harm to businesses that have diligently built brands around names that
they purchased with the expectation that they would be able to keep those
names as long as they maintained registration at a predictable, and stable
price. Such a precedent has been set over the course of multiple decades

Verisign has proven not to be a worthy custodian of consumers interest, and
only interested in what is good for themselves. This is a dangerous
position when they control the literal life of navigation on the Internet,
a global entity.

I urge ICANN to please reconsider this possibility, and allow the voices of
the global community to be heard and considered on this matter.

Thank you,
