Symantec services are of  benefit to Symantec users and not All Users. At
least do these different businesses exchange information between one
another and collaborate?

That's DNS reputational services for you.

Internet requires a Reputation Service that is free from commercial agenda
and free from political bias.

You can go as far as actually not really knowing what these people do

Not knowing what they do is not OK. A good reputation service needs to a
system of ranking that is fair, actually more responsive to domain names or
Internet resources that require false positives reversed. In the current
environment, it requires expert help even to know that there is a false
reputation record somewhere, and is almost a dead wall when you try to get
to them to reverse it.
