Guess that's why I didn't join IIA.  Proves my point perfectly doesn't it.

If Coca Cola took three weeks to deliver product to your shop, would you
continue to purchase the product knowing that it wasn't going to arrive and
you'd have no drinks to serve your customers?

I think not.  You would quickly change to Pepsi and tell the customers that
Coke couldn't deliver their product. (Hopefully Coke will NEVER do this! I
really HATE PEPSI!  Especially places that serve me PEPSI when I
specifically order Coca Cola. Grrrr.)

I wasn't aware this was the case.  I though it was to allow people to see
names under the existing if slightly modified by concensus (who's concensus
still shows) to the public.  Assuming one wants to "sell."

I've never been against sale of Domain Names.  I've always stated the
prices are TOO HIGH.  But have learnt sometimes a product price needs to be
high to attract a market to it.

Vic, if your unhappy with AU, try using AUS.  Same thing, same network,
same TCP/IP, same software.

This begins with YOU.  Not ADNA, not Geoff, not anyone else.  It starts
with YOU the ISP using it.

Funny how the most vocally against COM.AU (etc) are the ones who aren't
taking the initiative to use AURSC.  I now count over 6000 ISP's of which
80 are Australian, using AURSC every day.

80 is roughly 18% of the ISP market in Australia.  It's been live now
officlaly since February.  to obtain 18% of the market in 4 months isn't
exactly what I call a bad thing.  Growth is around 12% a week globally.

Bugger MIT.  Why sell the same product that someone else does under the
same rules when you can sell a better product that YOU HAVE INPUT into?

Assuming you want to SELL it.

PISP in it's own way is Competition.  It's just that MIT makes 100% profit
as it currently stands.

(Or please corret me if MIT actually pays the AVCC for the hosting of the
COM.AU zone file.)
