I am usually a great fan of Jenny's work, but it's all a
bit too one-sided for me.

Some of us fully support Mr Elz retaining control of .AU
until AuDA is fully formed and can demonstrate that the
process will be orderly and stable.

We remember that this isn't the first time Melbourne IT
has made such demands, and recall with relief that Mr Elz
didn't assign .AU to ADNA when they were criticising him
in a similar fashion.

I feel that Jenny should have pursued the auction comment:
wouldn't that worsen "cyber-squatting", doesn't it favour
early adopters of the Internet?

And how about a quote from a consumer affairs organisation
concerning the desirability of the domain name having a
strong resemblance to the trading name of a company?

Jenny should also have questioned the move of Dr Roberts
from NOIE to Melbourne IT.  These staff movements are common
in cases of "client capture" of a government regulator,
and Jenny should have asked if that was the case here?
