| Hello fellow Duct Tapers....
|
|
| For everybody that is interested, some of us have a vested interest in how
| the DNS system works and this might concern you.
|
| Verisign wildcard changes spark fury
|

|
| Anybody interested can sign a pettition to ICANN at

|
| For those not familiar with the system.. DNS (Domain Name Server), (Domain
| Name Services) or (Domain Name System) is the system that allows you to
type
| http://www.joesnuffy.com and actually have your browser find the web site.
| It has always followed the standards, and was impartial and uncommercial
in
| nature.Now with Verisign's decision you will always be directed to an ads
| page if you make a typo. Using the DNS system to prevent Spam and Spoofed
| emails won't be effective since "ALL web sites will resolve to valid IP
| Address. Typing the wrong URL can result now in a long download of ads (If
| Verisign desires) instead of a quick DNS failure message. If you would
like
| follow the link and voice your opinion.. or read some of the comments...
| (some could make ya blush.....)
|
| Pardon the Rant and Rave.. But jeesh, why can't people let something that
| works alone.
