can't possibly describe the Elz administration as competent
Sorry, but you can't possibly describe the Elz administration as competent, fair, or organised. (Maybe it was OK to start with, I can't say, but later on it was utterly hopeless.) As someone who actually had dealings with that incompetent fool, let me assure you that the changeover to Melbourne IT was a vast improvement. Sure, Melbourne IT cost some money, and were not perfect. But they did at least demonstrate some minimal professional competence and process requests in a business-like manner. Under Elz, it was a different matter entirey.

- I agree with the essence of what you say about Elz in relation to .au, but Melbourne IT's .com.au service by the standards then was hardly astounding either. The would charge you $137, and would often sit on requests for weeks or months; when registries in other countries would do it in less than a day. Just because they were better than Elz makes no excuse for M-IT being slack.
- That said, I don't think it is established NPOV fact that kre acted in a "bizarre" way. That is just an opinion. Therefore I believe the article should say "some consider" he acted bizarre, rather than your wording.
- I have dealt with him, on and off over the years, so I am quite familiar with him, as well as being fairly involved in .au issues over that time.
