Re: If Verisign *really* wants to help ...

I seriously don't like this situation, especially considering latest marketing twists with verisign's new "services". What we have however are number of people working there have good technical experience running registry services (i.e. root dns, .com registry, ss7) but their managers who came from verisign itself are not interested in maintaining good level of service for such core services but rather extracting largest amount of money from these services which. If Verisign is to continue operating these core services (root dns, registry, ss7), they will need to be COMPLETELY separate from their other units (domain register) and run them as public trust. Or it may be best if Verisign were forced (by goverment and/or icann agreements) to move these into separate, possibly non-profit company like it was done when Internic (aka NSI) IP registration services were moved to ARIN. -- William Leibzon Elan Networks firstname.lastname@example.org
