Don,

Raising an eyebrow is not enough. The NetRegistry campaign you descibe is
still
going on. No action to stop them misleading the general public and profit at
the
expense of others ignorance has been taken, and this is intollerable.

Our acceptance of NetRegistry's conduct these past few years has resulted in
the dark ages of the au namspace. NetRegistry are now running a campaingn
where anyone who speaks out against them is branded as a witch and burnt at
the stake. While they simultaneously brand the aunic web site with their
advertising, and logos.

Middle ground is not what is needed, an even playing field must be the goal.
An even playing field is the best way to foster and support this industry.
This cannot
be achieved while:

1. NetRegistry hosts the aunic database.
2. NetRegistry misleads the unaware in regards to au.com
3. auDa continue with the proposed domain auctioning.

These issues are not just going to go away, and must be dealt with in a
manner
that restores an even playing field, before we can truly move on.

Harry

Harry, to an outsider to all of this foreplay, your tone and manner of
attacking individuals is become tiresome... your points are made. There are
no "ringleaders" here, and this nonsense has gone on long enough.

Larry, more than few people "in the trade" raised an eyebrow or two when
Netregistry became involved in AuDA, because we remember the campaign to get
people to scrap .au in favour of .au.com as a somehow viable alternative to
a true TLD. You can hardly blame anyone for questioning your companies
motives.

Have I stated the issues succinctly enough? - Can you blokes now find middle
ground? It's water under the bridge and time to move on.

(affiliations with AuDA or domain registrants = none ... and after reading
recent postings I think I should keep it this way.)
