Re: [ga] VeriSign sues ICANN --- time for ICANN to reassign the registry?

George and all former DNSO GA members or other interested

  Lets face it, ICANN made a bad "Deal" with Verisign and has been trying
several methods or getting out from under that contract.  Verisign "Owns"
.COM and will likely remain in control of .NET for some time [2007?]...

 The suit from Verisign is well justified for a number of reasons, not
the least of which some 84% of sitefinder users were very satisfied
with the service.  One size does not fit all, as they say.   I know many
of our members await Sitefinder's return.  Yet some purists seem to
dislike Whois competition.  Too bad!  As it is a consumer/stakeholder/user
decision, not the ICANN BoD or staffs.  Hence it is clear that when
Sitefinder is reintroduced, Verisign will be serving the
far better...
