Vileness Revisited

As one who has been <a href="http://www.tribolum.com/archives/2002/05/14_the_vileness_of_verisign.html">previously hit by Verisign's unethical business practices</a>, I'm doubly miffed that they're literally <a href="http://www.betanews.com/article.php3?sid=1063691303">monopolising the Internet</a>.
Type in the URL of any unregistered domain (that don't exist) and you'll be automatically brought to a Verisign managed page. Some ignorami report this as a friendly service that makes the net more usable. Goodness knows what they do with the marketing information they glean, not to mention the wonderful redirection they provide to spam spiders.
Dammit Verisign!
