Regarding the text expressed in your "Extra good news" extracted below,
once again Melbourne IT appears to have made renewal policy on the run and
once again it appears to have an arbitrary nature (6 month extension). Your
approach is becoming very carrot and stick. I regret this descent into
bonuses and wonder what else will pop out of the woodwork.

Warm regards
