    Cheers Spacey, the bar is being set lower and lower. Soon they will be clawing backs domains after several years, e.g. after a big sale or when a successful site has been built.

    The time frame is a joke, it's like selling a car and six months later "oh I need that to drive to Queensland in, give it back"

    The rules are so skewed against registrants that just about anything is possible with new tlds. Complete waste of money anyone investing in that space.

    As mentioned in the article , what if the registrant had sold it or spent a fortune promoting a developed website, then ends up "held to ransom" quite unfair

    Registrants must take responsibility with whom they deal with. All new tlds and repackaged country codes are very risky for running a business on. People are trusting the government of Colombia, Tuvalu or new tlds registries losing millions of dollars a year. Recipe for disaster.

    Say I go to Thailand and a guy offers to sell me gems, I get home and find out they are glass stones? Whose fault is it? The guy who sold them? The Thai government? Nope...none of the above. I can't get any money out of them.

    For the guy building a business on an ntld, they are probably making 100 other bad business decisions as well, what is the chance that they've only made one big blunder? Is it worth try to regulating that mess? At what point do people just have to to accept they are lying with dogs with these tlds?

    In a note to clients, Macquarie Equities said Amazon could build a $14 billion business in Australia but it will take time.http://www.smh.com.au/business/prop...-reach-out-to-help-amazon-20170406-gvetce.htm

    Australia Post’s pre-tax profit also jumped from just $1 million to $197 million in the six months to December 31.

    I keep looking back on the auspost profit statement and think that must be a mistake

    I think they just got a lucky break with parcels booming. I don't know if Australia Post really did a lot aside from putting up prices pretty significantly, buying a competitor in the parcel space (probably shouldn't have got past the ACCC). Hard to lose when you are a government protected monopoly.
