Maybe he enjoys a weekly Friday golf game with the auDA board :p

Come on who cares? Let him have his domains and move on.

How did you harvest the list?

|
| You seem to be missing the point that these rules are in fact designed to
| stop the minority, at the expense of the vast majority of registrants who
| just want to register their chosen name at a reasonable price and get on
| with running their business.
|
| >One way is the current policy of not allowing resale of domain names,

| >very least makes it more difficult and so assists in enforcing the
policy.
| >All the policies tend to work together.
|
| The current policy does not prohibit the resale of domain names at all.
|  It simply forces people into the rather farcial situation where they have
| to pretend that they're selling a business for which the domain name is
| an asset.
|
| >Take IP out of the definition and the intent is the same.  You may call
| >it a bird but if it quacks it is still a duck.
|
| The intent may be the same but we're talking about policies to prevent
certain
| market behaviours.  There are effective mechanisms in place to combat IP
| infringement.  There are not for domain warehousing.  It is therefore a
| separate issue.
|
| >As the other policies would be weakened and there would not be any
barriers
| >to a full scale assault of cybersquatting or "warehousing".
|
| Incorrect.  There are effective mechanisms in place for dealing with
cybersquatting
| that would be unaffected by the removal of the allocation policy.
Warehousing
| is happening now in the .au domain space and has been for many years.  As
| I've said, I don't believe that there is an effective way to proscribe
domain
| warehousing without adversely affecting the vast majority of "legitimate"
| registrants.  I also don't see that is the major problem that you seem to
| assume it is.
|
| >Making sure the opportunities for scammers and others to make a profit
| >are not there and trying to keep them out.  Sure it takes work and it
makes
| >it harder on everyone but I don't want to see the .au namespace ending

|
| I'm not arguing with your intentions, I'm just trying to point out the
reality
| that (a) the current allocation rules do not prevent warehousing and (b)
| that warehousing is not necessarily a "bad thing" anyway.  IMHO, as long
| as there is some local presence eligibility requirement, .au domain names
| will continue to have a degree of perceived value in the Australian
market.
|  I also believe however that the other restrictions on registration are
| neither effective nor particularly necessary and should therefore be
removed.
