Submission + - VeriSign wants to suspend com/net domains without -> 1 1

GeorgeK writes: "VeriSign, the monopoly registry operator for .com/.net domain names, has submitted a proposal to ICANN describing an "Anti-Abuse" policy. If they are allowed to proceed with such a policy, they would become judge, jury and executioner, with the ability to suspend or even cancel alleged "abusive" domain names without due process for registrants.

The proposal even recognizes that legitimate domain names may be taken down improperly, and offers a "protest" procedure. However, VeriSign does not appear to offer any ability to protest an accusation of abuse before the suspension or cancellation. They intend to "shoot first and ask questions later.""
