My favorite feature of the internet is that it levels the playing
field. Once online, a single person can create a web presence that
rivals even the biggest corporation's web presence, and for fairly
cheaply.

This presents all kinds of opportunities for people - with enough
effort, a person can get onto the internet and build something
interesting. A crucial part of this is having a memorable domain name,
and the .com domain is easily the most popular and easy to remember.

Allowing this new price-increase plan will shut out entrepreneurs. A
lot of the newer generic gTLDs are prohibitively expensive, shutting
out people who may not have a lot of money but have a great idea.
Having a .com domain to point to is crucial for anybody starting a new
business venture.

Please keep the .com domain inexpensive, and don't allow Verisign to
shut out new businesses.
