we will see wont we. at this stage without a business case proposition
from auda I certainly have no intention of supporting it.

what I said was auda has no right to inflict non commercial investment on
registrars.  thats not quite what your disengenious rewording is trying
to imply is it. its your pathetic obsession with registrar bottom line that is
the only nonsense.

nevertheless, auda has set a very clear precedent that it is willing
to subsidise policy with a bottomless purse. you cant have it have both
ways, either auda withdraws funding from non commercially viable projects
or it funds all non commercially viable activity.

this issue is certainly resulting in a real loss of confidence with auda.
