Shame the banks didn't have a "bank.nz" second-level domain to name

Yes. run :P
For as long as the Registrars continue to be 'good netizens' and deal
promptly with phishers, is that not a better way to go? At least it
means noone can afford to turn a blind eye to the practise.
.bank.nz would shield a proportion of users, but in the end, the users
who fall for phishing attempts are unlikely to spot the difference
between bank.nz and co.nz, IMHO.
