"As we all know Oracle is not the biggest friend to the Open Source Community."
This is a bit weasely. We all don't know any such thing. For example, Oracle was in the top ten of organisations that contributed code to Linux last year: http://www.linuxfoundation.org/news-media/announcements/2012/04/linux-foundation-releases-annual-linux-development-report
Since then it has been very public with Oracle Linux, and made several large contributions from that front.
Shucks, it's even got its own OSS portal: https://oss.oracle.com/
I'm happy to agree it's a big bad corporate beast and does a lot of wrong in the world, but if you're going to criticize it, at least be factual.
ICANN, IAB Ask VeriSign to Suspend SiteFinder
For example: I can't hijack or redirect every mistyped domain to my ad server e.g. (yaho.com or yaahoo.com). I have to register each misspelling.
You could if you owned/managed the recursive outward-facing DNS server in your organisation or ISP, at least for those clients using your server. Verisign controls the authoritative iterative zone authoritative for the .com and .net TLDs, so their benefit is that the buck stops with them for all failed (i.e. non-existant) .com and .net domain queries, whereas your company or ISP DNS server only handles the up-channel from clients to the root servers (along with maybe the internal zone).
The point is that it would break the expected IETF standard behaviour for DNS, and that's the upsetting part.
