In my case, I did it to learn, and because I did have a small business
going as well. Learning how to run that also directly led to my
current job... helping run my ISP's mailserver (among other things).
Besides, all you are really doing is creating another Verisign... not
something we want.
No, no no no no! Not Verisign at all, please do not bash this idea with
the evil doers! All the details would have to be worked out for the
best interest of everyone. Don't confuse a registrar proposal with
Verisign, even though they may do something in the same, IMHO Verisign
needs to be assimilated.
