    Too busy for you....

    Their employees must be too busy working on "innovations" such as SiteFinder [whois.sc] or WLS [icann.org]. A letter complaining to their lawyers might end up getting a slow response, given their current workload [icann.org].

    I Agree, But Your English Is Awful ...
    by Anonymous on Monday March 07 2005, @03:17PM (#14667)
    I agree with you, Verisign is pathetic. That said, now let's get down to accrediting registrars whose English is woefully poor. What sort of customer service do you expect to provide with pathetic English? Your post reads like an elementary school pupil wrote it. I do not want registrars whose principals cannot speak proper English selling English language domain names. Nothing personal, but if you cannot speak proper English, you cannot possibly accurately deal in an English language product ... it's impossible.

    Verisign, why can't that be you???

    Afilias Is Worse
    by Anonymous on Wednesday March 09 2005, @02:46PM (#14672)
    Moshe Fogel not only owns domains.info, he's hoarding drc.info, drc.biz, and drc.us.

    He's a registrar and Afilias board member.

    Have any Verisign board members gamed the domain name system in the same fashion? I don't think so.

    Clean up Fogel and those of his ilk before worrying too much about the cranks at Verisign.
