Let's put things into perspective.

There is no indication where that file came from, but it doesn't appear
to have anything more than what can be learned from whois queries to
AUNIC, and some additional unrelated comments.

It has been said before and I dont think it needs to be brought up
over and over, but the AUNIC database was previously downloadable in its
entirety via FTP.  When auDA took over operation of AUNIC, this facility
was closed.

auDA has also removed the ability to flood AUNIC with queries in order
to build up the same data in a clandestine way.

I can see the frustration this causes, I personally think it is terrible
what has happened with the data, but what exactly is it proposed that
auDA can do about it?

auDA is only here to make things better, and I hope we can see some
constructive criticism and suggestions on what exactly could be done
better.
