Hey,

I've only got one so far.....

Since I've only got one NIC Handle / email address for various .au domain
names, I assume I won't get any more.

I mean, even Melbourne IT isn't dumb enough to send multiple emails to the
one address.

Are they?



Hmmmmmm, they're dumb enough to send an email that includes Flash.  I wonder
what goose at Melbourne IT still believes that Flash is somehow a 'plus'
rather than a 'minus'.

Regards, Mark

I have now received three unsolicited emails from Melbourne IT.

A copy of the email can be found here: http://joshrowe.com/melbit.html

Has anyone else received it?

The three emails were addressed to:

1. an email address which only appears in the "whois.aunic.net" database
2. an email address which only appears in the "whois.inww.com" database
3. an email address which only appears in "whois.inww.com" &
"whois.aunic.net" databases

I was unable to find a email/privacy policy on either the Melbourne IT or
INWW web sites.

Opt-out doesn't work either - http://www.caube.org.au/optout.htm
