    Been in some headlines lately, the American government likes to keep .com prices down whether Verisign like it or not.

    Rick Schwartz has been quick to call out people for not fighting the previous price rises, the thing is there are a lot more Domainer's these days and most didn't even know about domains a decade ago let alone pricing, so he his just blowing his own horn as usual. Also worth noting that back then people were making good money from their parking and were not too fussed about increases in price.

    Hmmm you got that wrong... just because we were making more does not mean we wanted to pay more... no one ever liked or wanted the price increase, the only difference is that there was no one there in the past to try and stop the price rise. So if you have not signed the petition please do so.
