Dear Verisign,

Hey, it’s me. Y’know, that sex.com thing was kinda funny. But lately, some of your antics have been a little—what’s the word?—less than enjoyable. And now this business of redirecting everyone who mistypes an address to your own site for your profit, that really twists my guts, y’know? I wasn’t made to work that way.

Not that I’ve been reading up on governance or checks and balances, or anything. But I warn you, I’m getting right on to this one. Your actions will have serious consequences, in like twenty years or so.

signed, your pal, The Internet
