whois issues

[ #9877 ]

ICANN is seeking comments on proposals to change how the whois information is being handled and how it's available. Aaron has some comments on it.

He mentions that having the whois information available to everyone might have a chilling effect on human rights activists. I never thought of that; but I do know that it's problem in tracking spammers that they falsify the whois information (and that the registrars let them eventhough it's disallowed).
