Don’t ever get caught in the cross-hairs of Rick Schwartz; the Domain King unleashed an epic wall of fire against Verisign, following recent announcements containing strong anti-domainer sentiment.

The Verisign blog, replicated at CircleID, indirectly referred to domain investors as “scalpers,” and alleged that $1 billion dollars could be saved by consumers, if the domain aftermarket did not exist.
