I would also like to hear the boards response to this situation.

All this stuffing around with pr.au etc is doing nothing.

The real competition is required under .com.au and then you can introduce
other SLD's etc.

As stated by numerous other participants (Leni mayo even) ADNA has done
nothing but spend money, there has been "No delegation of authority from the
.au authority, Robert Elz."

Unless the above is achieved ADNA and the Domain name system in Australia
will stagnate and become the ass end of the world as everyone thinks AUST is
