By this logic and many other statements made here it appears there is
little to no support for the fact that Australian domain name space is
the least technically polluted of almost any country. Largely due to a
few individuals who refused to have conversations like this and a self
regulatory body that followed on from them. God I can't believe I
actually would ever be in a position of having to support Robert Elz in
this regard. I think Hell must be freezing over right now. 

So why have domain name classifications at all? From what I'm reading
here we might as well make all domain names .com and be done with it.
What possible reason could there be to relate a domain name to a type of
organisation or country of origin? 

Now, how do we get rid of auDA so Link Institute can implement these
fantastic ideas and get domain name issues back on track?
