	Robert Elz was many things. But a fool was not one of them. He was a
pioneer who helped to bring the miracle that is the internet to Australia.
He developed RFCs with regard to the Domain Name system and others. Rather
than stopping business on the internet, he suggested TLDs for personal use
etc. He made a profound contribution over 15 years of "selfless and
dedicated service". He worked long and hard for the future we now have, and
has been thoroughly scourged for the privilege. I hope history will be
kinder to you Kirk.

The "Wealth" of the Internet is the prime concern here though. What we're
discussing needs to be considered carefully with regard to what can be lost.
But we can discuss humanities another time...

	Indeed there are :) ... The time has certainly come for an equitable
system to be worked out. One that allows for growth, and not stagnation.
