Given that VeriSign is strongly hinting that they'd like to soon restart
their notorious and disruptive Site Finder domain diversion scheme
(see: [link to Washington Post article]),
I believe it would be prudent for the Internet community to begin
planning now for appropriate legal, business, and technical actions and
reactions for that or related possible eventualities.
The PFIR Forum on "E-Mail Issues, Problems, and Solutions":
is available immediately for this purpose as a starting point (even though
Site Finder issues transcend e-mail). I can spin off a separate forum for
this discussion later if traffic and circumstances warrant it. We need to be
discussing these issues now so that if and when VeriSign starts the clock on
a Site Finder reactivation we won't be blindsided again.
Also, any e-mail on this topic that is not suitable for the public
discussion forum is invited at:
