To whom it may concern,

I am against Amendment 3 in it's entirety. Allowing Verisign to operate 
as its own registrar will only serve to allow Verisign to run many 
smaller registrars out of business, after which they can then 
immediately spike their prices with no consequence, due to the other 
rules allowing them to change prices upward. If the reasoning is that 
Verisign will self police, we have significant evidence that businesses 
do not self police when given freedom to do what they want.

On the whole, it appears that you accepting $20MM, with no earmarks as 
to what it is going to be spent on, or how Verisign benefits from the 
situation, is essentially a bribe of the highest form. This situation 
will obviously make much more than $20MM for Verisign and result in 
countless losses for consumers and registrars alike.

Do not allow this Amendment to pass
