Bennett,

Can you confirm that all domain application made under
the "close and substantial" clause are "vetted" by a
human at enetica. I do agree with you that legitimate
reasons should not be objected to I just wanted to
check that someone is actually reading these reasons
before approval.

I cannot see how names such as goog.com.au,
googe.com.au and yahho.com.au cannot be found to be
suspicious and that auda was not contacted for
verification.

While i can understand the wishes of consumers for
instant approvals, I cannot see why there cannot be
put in place mechanisms where the domain is put on
hold at the registry end until proper approval has
been given for cases like these. Also with the excess
funds that auDa seems to collecting they do not
allocate a person to deal with cases such as these as
I am sure with the relaxing of policy more
questionable registrations will occur.
