    Looks like .COM and .NET (Verisign) is Not Coming

    Looks like .COM and .NET (Verisign) is Not Coming

    Verisign needs to now STOP sending checks to
    ICANN. The Verisign shareholders have a right
    to demand that their company stop supporting
    extortion. If Verisign continues to support
    ICANN, financially, then the Verisign shareholders
    have a Class Action Lawsuit prepared for the
    Verisign management.

    The United States Government will deal with
    ICANN. It created it and it will dismantle it.
    Verisign and the Verisign shareholders will
    benefit financially by working closely with
    their elected U.S. Government officials. The
    Homeland will be more secure and protected
    from terrorists brought in by the ISOC.

    Hermione Granger is a fictional character (from the Harry Potter series). Is there some point to this list of (not all real) names?
