|Pretty simple - Verisign is the end-all be-all arbiter of .COM, and it is most definitely US-based. |
Well if decisions like this are permitted to stand (or at least linger and fester), maybe .com will lose some of its appeal.
I think it all boils down to some in KY feeling their economic way of life threatened by these sites, and lashing out in the only way they think they can.
People want all of the benefits of a global economy, but none of the pitfalls. What if ALL non-KY websites should block KY (just to be safe). See how they like them apples.
