Internet is a true enabler of democracy and increasingly becoming a tool
that helps poor people to bridge the gap with rich. We trust you to be the
guardian and safe guard this precious thingie called 'Internet', not just
for now but future too. Please do the right thing and fall for pressures
from vested commercial interests.

I oppose Amendment 3 to the .COM Registry Agreement. I believe that
allowing wholesale prices for .com domains to rise 72% over 12 years, which
is far more than the rate of inflation and also far more than Verisign's
underlying costs of maintaining the registry could possibly increase by,
will dramatically hurt the internet ecosystem. It will especially hurt
small website operators, like myself, and will discourage internet users
from creating blogs and personal pages, with the end result of reducing
democratization of the internet.
