I recently learnt of the proposed rules governing companies that provide
WHOIS privacy services (as set forth in the Privacy and Policy Services
Accreditation Issues Policy document):
I urge you to reconsider and respect internet users' rights to privacy and
due process. You are literally playing with people's lives. I personally
have a website which uses privacy services because it is prone to DOXing
and SWATing. One could discredit me professionally, the other could cause
serious bodily harm and have legal repercussions.
I understand that the 'privacy services' are not a great solution, but
trying to ban these services outright is endangering a lot of domain owners.

Best regards,
A concerned citizen.
