I am a domainer, investing in domain names as a business.

I am against the proposed price increase to .COM domains.  No one other
than Verisign want increases in .COM prices, and increases benefit only

Verisign is already a highly-profitable company.  There is no reasonable
explanation to enrich them further at the expense of domain registrars and

The current rate of $7.85 is already far more than justified.  If the .COM
registry management contract were put up for competitive bidding, a much
lower price could be attained, which would truly be in the public
interest.  Instead, we have an anti-competitive system set up to benefit
only Verisign and ICANN.

Verisign is merely your manager of the .COM Registry – it has no business
dictating the price.  ICANN is supposed to govern the domain name system in
the public interest.
