They had the word Australia in their domain, ummm what are they hiding?
Actually there are a number of reasons why one might not choose a .au
1. the cost.
2. the cost.
3. the complicated rules.
4. did I mention the cost?
For instance although it might seem that a .com and a .com.au are
similar, their rules are vastly different. I doubt the dems could get
the jobsforaustralia.com domain as I don't think it would obey the
rules for .com.au:

Maybe they could have got it but it'd be a stretch.
