and I think hobbyists and other self anointed figures are the last people
on earth that should represent the public.

and being a self appointed public advocate does? NOT.

simple exercise, I offer you $1m for a domain you own because I have a
better use for it. how many people do you think will consider
against the public interest to sell it?  none. you dont need empirical
data to see very clearly that you dont have an case, just a bunch of
personal opinions.

there are no good arguments for the prohibition of secondary markets. I
dont benefit one jot when a customer sells a name, I still only get my
registrar fees. so get off your high horses.

all this talk of "public good" is really just expression of personal bias.

the hobbyist positions on the board should be removed, I have no idea
why we allow a bunch of hobbyists on the board, perticularly when they
repeatedly display anti-commercial bias towards the .com.au namespace.
