Hello, I am writing to voice my opposition to Proposed Amendment 3.
Despite there clearly being potential financial gains to be had by
raising the registration fee on .com domains, the global DNS
registration system should be run primarily as a public concern. The
only entities that stand to benefit from the proposed arrangement are
verisign itself, at the expense of the public. While price hikes such
as this likely won't mean much to the larger business concerns that
buy in bulk, it will impact the millions of small, independent
businesses and developers that rely on the system as is to make their
livelihood.  At worst, this could prove yet another point of pressure
that convinces a small business to make their online presence
exclusively in the Facebook walled garden and eschew the web itself.
The web, and global DNS, were envisioned to be run for the public
good, and they SHOULD be run for the public good. Deals such as this
are an abdication of that mandate; short sighted profit chasing at the
expense of all else. Please do not adopt this proposal.
