    It is one of those auDA decisions where they probably thought it was a great idea for them but in no way does it pass the pub test.

    The end result is the place will be shut down because of choices like this.

    "Recommendations:

    2. That auDA continue to operate as a not-for-profit entity and does not seek to maximise profit.

    3. Consideration of commercial strategies relevant to the sustainability of the domain administrator should not detract from the domain administrator’s core function as described in the terms of endorsement and core purpose."
