Yep, I realised that. Sorry if my reply was a little too blunt, but I
disagreed with some of the generalisations made in the summary, that's
all. :)

Yes, was mainly pointing out my opinions on the summarsiation of the
argument as it stands.

As for your suggestion, I do think it's a good idea, however I prefer the
idea that:
- auDA makes lots of money from .com.au and .net.au and does not charge
for registration or renewal of .asn.au and .org.au
- resources (systems and network connectivity) are donated by interested
individuals/organisations/ISPs/Universities
- Human resources to handle things are donated by a group of volunteers.

PD
