Subject: NTIA/ICANN input

It has come to my attention that public input over the fate of ICANN is
requested. Given the current state of DNS and the Internet as a whole, I
offer my opinions as a knoledgable administrator of a large webcomic
collection:

* ICANN should stay, but independent of goverment control as an
international company. However, it must require only one representative
of each company, and a 50% private user/consumer representation.

* ICANN should require, on future contracts over DNS, that all registars
react proactively to any abuse reports and maintain contacts in the Usenet
newsgroup news.admin.net-abuse.email. People who abuse the Internet
should not have the right to use DNS to commit such abuse, and therefore
registrars must remove said abusers from DNS.

* ICANN should require all domains registered in DNS to have full WHOIS
information, including contact information. This includes not only .com,
.org, .net, .biz, .info, .int, and .gov, but also all country-code
domains.
