Larry,

I couldn't help but notice that you have your name servers listed for
the AU.COM domain as both being on the same subnet. My understanding of
DNS is that this is bad Karma. Given the hieracherial nature of DNS if
this subnet is bought to its knees by say Codered/Nimda etc the name
resolution of the au.com sub domains will fail. I would have thought
that having at least one dns server for AU.com outside of Australia
would be justified based on the size of the AU.COM namespace

Not being a DNS guru I stand corrected if this is not the case.

Cheers,

Glenn.

1. I agree that the term Top Level Domain when applied to both .au.com
and
.com.au is misleading. We followed existing literature describing
.com.au in
using his term. I'm happy to amend our literature to remove it.

2. The rights enjoyed by people who register .au.com domain names are
the
same as registrants under .com.au. The exact nature of domain name
ownership
has never been fully established. Essentially, domain name registrants
have
a licence to use the name subject to ongoing payment of renewal fees.
You
don't actually _own_ a com.au name - you licence it - same as you do a
.au.com name

3. Larry Bloch does not own .au.com - get your facts straight:
