    VeriSign folks:

    I seem to have written something that might upset someone again. I am
    really sorry. You guys have done a lot of good work and put a lot of
    information on your Web site regarding IDN. A lot of it is educational
    in nature, and a lot of it seems to indicate that you have sound
    policies in place.

    It was unfair of me to accuse you (and other TLD operators) of only
    wanting to make money (and not being interested in the phishing problem).

    I apologize, and hope that you will send comments to one or both of
    these mailing lists when you're ready.
