yep, the chinese are having a crack at it but we are not too far behind.

I heard that the TBOBHUA (true blue ockers bar holder upperers association 
) were doing the same.

any word that had a distinctly ocker flavour eg bugger, meat_pie, swaggie, 
pub, dunny, ozioziozioyoyoy etc were being claimed as going only through 
the name server at rootem.bloke.net.

A representative of bloke.net said today that if other cultures could claim 
their culture specific word particles and characters as their own right in 
cyberspace then we <deleted> well can too! We've certainly got enough 
bloody characters of our own round 'ere.

The new system will not require add in software as yet but will assist in 
the resolving of issues related to the issuing of identical business names 
in the various states.

Suffixes will be classified by the local brewers product for example 
victoria would use the suffix's .vb and .fosters with Queensland registered 
business's using .xxxx and NSW most likely using . old or .new depending on 
personal preference. The annexure of New Zealand as a regional entity 
within this system ensures it has equal status with the Tasmanians. The 
Tasmanians would use the two headed suffix of .boags-cascade and the New 
Zealanders of course have a preference for .sheep

It was considered by the TBOBHUA committee that the Northern territory 
population was generally too drunk to use the net and that the crow eaters 
and sand gropers could just go figure something out for themselves. This 
was resolved mostly due to the lack of decent beer in both states.
