Actually if analyze it a little,

If you click on the banner, it deprives melboune IT of the traffic, hence
taking the focus away from Melb IT, as the user clicks through to the site.

And it is my guess, that they are then educated about domain names, and
given a list of ALL the registars to chose from.

Credit where credits due, Good move ausregistry, i see this as promotion to
competition rather than plugging Melb It as the only solution.

Hi Daniel

I think you'll find that what's happened here is purely coincidental.
IT has had an arrangement with Yahoo Australia to promote domain names which
dates back to 2001 from memory.  I presume that Ausregistry has recently
purchased banner advertising to promote their new site across the Yahoo
AU site, which is why it's appearing on that page.
