More on Verisign Evil

If you aren?t familiar with Verisign you can read my last entry on them for more information. If you know about Verisign you will be delighted to find out that ICANN has finally grown a spine. The president and CEO of ICANN has written an open letter to the general manager of Verisign's naming and directory service in which he issues an ultimatum: get rid of the evilly asinine SiteFinder service (that breaks the Internet by redirecting all misspelled domain requests to an ad-ware site) by Oct 4, or ICANN will "seek promptly to enforce VeriSign's contractual obligations." Apparently, this is ICANN-speak for "terminate with extreme prejudice."
