    The letter reflects that most registrars profit greatly from ICANN's existence. Verisign in contrast would like to return to the old days where they had an absolute monoply over the Internet naming system.

    What the internet really needs is an ICANN without Joe Simms, Louis Tutton and Vint Cerf.

    Joe Sims and Vint Cerf have been very important in ICANN's development. Fortunately, we have some new up-and-coming people who will continue their legacy within ICANN. Hopefully, their work will set an example for years to come. Thanks for setting the Internet on its path. Nice job Joe & Vint!

    Now if these registrars that have a contractual relationship with ICANN and deal with it on a regular basis were to say that ICANN sucked would that make this gaggle a bunch of Princes/Princesses through your eye glasses?

    Lets do the math, there are 240 ccTLD three of them sign a letter with VRSN, they are brillant, and almost 40 out of 150 accredited registrars sign a letter and they are a gaggle.

    I think you are choking the gaggle to hard and need to let go to let the blood return to your brain.

    I wait breathlessly to see if bondi or some of the other registrar scammers are signatories to this. Of course they like the status quo. It's a license to print money. These registrars are scammers, their overseer ICANN is a scammer, so it must logically follow that ICANN's overseer DoC is, no doubt, just a diligent USG department doing a wonderful job. -g
