A: Because it’s all about the bill! That and the fact that it allowed us both the scope and the opportunity to get away with a lot of bad duck puns. After all you are using the World Wide Webbed to check out this blog!
A: To provide a place on the web for information, resources and open discussion about the Australian telecommunications billing industry.
A: In the main, the Quack contributors are the MD and senior staff of Billing Bureau, although we may occasionally invite other people to write guest pieces.
A: While any comments may be posted the blog is moderated in the sense that we will be checking the site and removing any inappropriate material. While we would like this to be an open forum for comment we also need to balance this with the need and the obligation to protect the rights and interests of all members of the Australian telco industry. For this reason we moderate comments to avoid the publication of comments that are defamatory, overly personal, etc. We will open up a whole can of Quack Fu on anyone found beaking the rules.
