VeriSign pulls critic-heavy discussion list

Author: JT Smith

CNET News.com: "The company that manages databases for the Internet's most popular names
has shut down an e-mail discussion list that had turned into a forum for its critics.

VeriSign made the announcement on the "Domain Policy" mailing list Thursday. The decision was
effective immediately.

VeriSign spokesman Brian O'Shaughnessy said the closure had nothing to do with the criticisms.
If that had been the case, he said, VeriSign would have shut down the list long ago."
