I'm not sure if you're aware, but there is a lot of vicious behavior on the
internet. Death threats, sharing of personal information (such as home
addresses), and more. If you're unfamiliar this is a good primer - this is
just the videogame-related abuse, but there's much more out there.

Having all of a site owner's info will only make it easier for abusers to
find their targets. There's a practice called SWATting where someone will
call the police to have a SWAT team sent to a house - I can only imagine
how much more there will be once all of a registrant's info is publicly

Please make the responsible choice.
