you seem to think registrars exist outside the free market. supply and demand 
sets pricing. if a registrar can someone manage to get a higher price for 
domains then that is not harm.

its called a free market, maybe you need to learn about how it operates. 
registrars are not charities, registrars are businesses. its beyond auda's 
scope to force registrars to sell domains at a perticular price. nobody 
forces registrants to buy domains at any specific price. its up to 
registrants to determine if a perticular price represents value for them or 
not. its not up to you to make that call for anyone else. its also outside 
audas scope to regulate pricing or to regulate registrar profits or loses.

furthermore if the regulator is allowed to auction domains and realise a 
domains true market value then that is a clear precendent for everyone else 
to follow.

suggestions that registrars only exist to sell at recomended retail or only 
allowed to run a business by selling at recommended retail are just insanity 
and would be blinding hypocrisy if it came from auda.

unless you can actually demonstrate some harm from domain tasting, which 
nobody has yet done, I am not going to respond to anymore of these posts. 
feel free to have the last word.
