Those of us in the business for awhile know what happened. I'm sure kre
will back me up.

The policy on names in the .COM.AU domain has changed over time.
"In the beginning, it was open slather. Then the domain God
decreed: Let there be rules".

Your example of is one of hundredes, i.e.,, and on and on. These domains were registered long
before the rules were established. Your example
is out of line: obscenities have never been allowed and never will be.

The question that should be on everyone's lips is this:

    What is the DNA policy w.r.t. existing domain names that
    do not comply to the new rules? Are they removed from the
    Domain Name System?
