Nobody's saying that Verislime shouldn't be able to provide new services. Their problem was with how they *broke* so many applications that expected the DNS system to work the way it was intended. Sheesh.

This quote's from a Washington Post article:

   "Before agreeing to take down Site Finder, VeriSign
   had promised to work with the Internet community to
   iron out any glitches triggered by Site Finder."

"glitches triggered by Site Finder"??? WHAT?!?! Site Finder CREATED those glitches. Verislime's acting like the software was buggy and all they did was expose the bugs. The software was written properly - it's VS that's broken.

Like someone over on NANOG said, they sure are playing the victim.
