Whatever. Shoot the messenger if you like.
The way auDA has implemented close and substantial wrt these 2 letter
domains is is nothing short of shameful. You have implemented policy in a
way akin to someone buying a house, paying for it, getting the title deed
and then after they've moved in, taking the house away based on an obscure
and almost incomprehensible technicality, with no compensation and no right
to appeal. How can that possibly be right?
If you would shut up and listen occasionally, you might get to understand
the industry you regulate.
