arbitrary domain deletions, to breaking the rules accrediting registrars,
auDA is acting more and more as if it is not accountable to anyone.

Whilst many may be reticent to take auDA to task over its mismanagement,
failure to do so is not exactly a recipe for improvement.

Perhaps a clean sweep is required to ensure auDA appreciates and discharges
its responsibilities in an appropriately professional manner.

I think this raises great questions about whether or not auDA is doing
its job correctly and efficiently. I also wonder how the spending
increases and staff increases can be justified if these basic lapses
in their own process are allowed to fall through.

I really think it's time to re-examine whether or not auDA is still a
suitable body to oversee the .au namespace.
