ICANN - Do not ban Privacy Services
Dear ICANN, 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.
