    Lipstick on a pig doesn't make me want to kiss it

    As I wrote in my initial comments [icann.org], no matter how much lipstick you put on a pig, it's still a pig.

    The revised settlement proposal should be rejected, and negotiations should start over again, focusing only on the lawsuit issues, i.e. whether VeriSign breached its 2001 registry agreement via SiteFinder. That's what the lawsuit was all about, and it had nothing to do with renewal of the registry agreement. Those issues need to be unlinked.
