More bad news on the scumbags at VeriSign and ICANN. VeriSign, as a reward for their sheer greed and incompetence, gets permanent hold of .com and long term hold on .net. More importantly (for this site), there’s talk of reimposing the old restrictions on .org domains so that they are only issued to real non-profit organizations. That would be fine with me if the idiots had accepted any of a huge number of proposals to expand the namespace beyond the pitiful number of TLDs that are currently available. I’m not in love with .org, but I’m certainly not a .net or a .com.
