Perhaps we should set up an organisation to represent domain holders?

Indeed; the open slather you have when you're not having open slather. 

Strange how the work of the Panels seemed to get overridden at the last
minute by the new rules as published in time for AusRegistry to get the
Regime Change ads ready to roll.

It was all I could do to ask AuDA and/or AusRegistry to at least fix the
latter's initially incomplete eligibility requirements, but the
open slather clause was added to all without obvious discussion except -
perhaps? - by the board.  Total ICANNisation here we come, ready or not.

Returning this list to its now dominant 'supply side' constituency,


PS: can anyone suggest any decent lists concerned with actual Domain
Name Service operation?  Sig to noise here in that respect is near 0.
