in reply to Verisign Hijack all possible .com .net domains and destroy Email::Valid, Net::DNS, gethostbyname() etc

Alternatively, add a country id (eg .au). These are not controlled by verisign and nobody has hijacked them ... yet.

    Well, Verisign DOES manage .tv! Which IS a country based domain. But I figure that the government concerned did not want to play, or was a t least waiting to see what the reaction was.

    There were one or two other TLD's doing this earlier, but I noticed when the Verisign do-do hit the fan the others stopped pretty suddenly!

      To be fair, Tuvalu (the .tv country,) is leasing their ccTLD. I remembered reading about it when it happened.
      The good old CIA World Factbook mentions this item here.
