One lesson that I would draw from the so-called "old dns list" is
that if you don't focus on the main game in a mailing list, you will
not get anything done in that list.

I'm sure most of us could argue with Vic about various points a-f
above.  Instead I call on participants in the so-called "new dns list"
to concentrate on the issue about which there *does* seem to be a rough
consensus, that there should be competition at the registrar level in
com.au.  I wouldn't want us to get bogged again and have to create a
"dns list mark III" so that we can re-focus.

If everybody could ask themselves "Does this message I am composing
help progress towards competition in com.au?" before sending each
and every message to this list, I would be a very happy man indeed.
(Well, I can dream, can't I?)
