In response to the recent considerations surrounding Domain Name privacy,
I'd like to offer my comments on the issue and urge you to reverse these
considerations and continue to provide full privacy and protection for
domain name customers.

I recently purchased a domain to host a website where I review fountain
pens and ink, mainly for my own enjoyment, and for the pen community.  Due
to budget constraints I didn't purchase WHOIS privacy at first and
immediately started getting harassing phone calls all hours of the day and
night from people who masked their phone number with a random locally owned
number to trick me into answering.  They proceeded to try and get personal
information from me under the guise of trying to help me (e.g. house
repairs, etc).  They already knew an alarming amount of information.  I
immediately purchased additional protection, but by then the damage had
been done.  I've now been forced to change my phone number.

Please don't let this happen to other people - everyone has a right to
their own privacy as long as they're abiding by the law and minding their
own business.

Thank you
