Yea I received a couple of them.
What tweaked my interest was the headers, the message did not appear to
originate from Melbourne IT's network AFAIK.

I could disclose lots of information about element.net.au that is publically

There was one line in the message that made me chortle:

Can someone explain to me how a new gTLD is faster and more secure?

cheers
