The mysterious broken VeriSign Driver?

We all know that Dopa or SC stats has gone crazy. Traffic has dropped tremendously, then shot up like crazy 2 weeks ago, and then dived ever since. I'm now worried that i maybe booted out due to "low traffic".

I did some thinking about this Verisign driver broken concept, and can't understand how can that driver be "turned off" by the chinese isps or authority? Isn't the driver just a unicode to punycode converter?

Is it possible that the Chinese are simply blocking Dopa and SC?

That doesn't make sense as we are getting low levels of traffic.

According to DNF discussion, ascii domains that were getting chinese traffic also lost traffic.

One guy said he parked his ascii with chinese traffic at domainsponsor, earned $100 a day! I can't help feeling that we are really pathetic in comparison.

But anyway, they said domainsponsor was banned in china, but that's untrue, at least not the whole of china it's blocked.

I hooked up a name to analytics, only had direct traffic, and mostly IE5 and IE6! Any includes from this info??
