Looking at the Terms and conditions:

1. Eligibility. The Opensource.com 2012 Gift Guide Sweepstakes (the “Promotion”) is open to legal residents of Australia (excluding the states of New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory)

I see that someone is having a bad day with NSW & ACT.

Why have these been excluded from the list?
