I think that Connect does understand DNS and also has a much greater 
respect for that understanding in the industry than many others.

There was some confusion in my discussion with whoever the reporter was.

Perhaps if there was, then we would not have this crazy situation where an uniformed minority of Australian providers would have swallowed the .AUS propaganda.

I have a suggestion, which might educate the minority.

Maybe someone (possibly Connect) would like to start up (and maintain) a registry of all the providers in Australia who DO NOT support .AUS, it has to a more impressive than the opposing list.  We can then all use this registry when informing customers of the necessity of obtaining *real* domain names.

Is this worth doing?

Cheers, Craig

ps. Please don't come back at Connect saying we have a vested interest, if people we trust feel that this is an issue we will have redelegated.
