I have a good one, when was the last tiema telco asked any of us, or anyone for that matter, how to handle an NPA-NXX assignment? or LERG?
This isn't necessarily a great analogy for this situation. It is likely Verisign thinks of themselves as the phone company in this case and us as the consumers that don't know.
NEVER. We're not qualified to make decisions like that because we don't know what the effects could or would be. Likewise VeriSign obviously doesn't, nor do the general populace. As many have suggested if VeriSign wants to do this they can as a browser plugin or feature.
I don't think any phone company would ever consider routing all of the invalid NPA-NXXs to an answering machine that plays recorded advertising for the user.
I for one am going to dumping all traffic bound to SiteFinder.
Nah... Don't do that. Dump all traffic coming FROM SiteFinder. That way, it ties up their resources, while still achieving the same effect. (Wonder if I can figure out how to get a router to forward a packet and still generate an admin-prohibited back to the source :-) Owen

They think we're just a bunch of geek engineers that are unwilling to embrace new ideas. Most of all, they think they can make money this way, and, they don't really care about anything else. They're just trying to manipulate things so that the backlash doesn't cause them too much difficulty as they inflict this on the internet. Owen
