.com.au is privately owned domain, that currently exists as a
purely commercial venture.  by all means explain to us where the money
goes from .com.au sales?

since when is .com.au a country?

your words are completly empty and meanignless since you do nothing
but pay lip service to the idea of competion with .com.au.

an enourmous number of people get duped into paying for .com.au domains
thinking you are some sort of government body, when you are nothing
but a commercial venture like .au.com. will you refund these people?
will you refund those people who cant get the domain they want but
are forced to accept poor subsitutes?

the entire process of dns in this country stinks. perhaps robert elz
should pull his finger out and start paying attention to what the public
expect, rather then continuing to line the pockets of his melbourne uni mates.

WHERE IS COMPETITION IN .COM.AU?
