    read more DNT posts, all the advice you need is within these walls and honestly doesn't need repeating.

    do some keyword searches and the posts will come up, read the threads from the start otherwise you may misunderstand the context of the advice.

    cool, once you are done reading create a thread that says something like:

    " ok, i now know hypens, .net.au, mispells , trademarks................ are bad........... so now i just have a few more questions.

    then you will get longer answers i suspect :)

    I am not surprised they have not replied. Any domain they wanted, they would have had it by now.

    Hyphens are fine are better than a foreign word imo. Hyphens still rank very well big of course that's another discussion and not really part of the domainers core..

    well written, deserves to be reviewed/tweaked and placed as a sticky in newbies section i think.

    it would save many repetitive post answers
