submission to ICANN - please act to ban all proxy services that enable stalkers, cyber bullies and paedophiles to run anonymous websites
Dear ICANN, Reference: A. http://www.smh.com.au/digital-life/digital-life-news/fears-website-owners-will-be-stripped-of-anonymity-under-icann-proposal-20150626-ghyb4y.html I am being stalked by a person who regular hides behind proxy services to prevent me and local police from knowing who the person is. It tool me a year to have the www.suzylovich.com <http://www.suzylovich.com/> website taken down after it posted up hate, copyright breaches and defamatory material about me. I managed to report Abuse and DCMA breaches to the Service Provider who eventually removed the hate site permanently. The person then re-commenced the same course of conduct under a new website www.mystalker.info <http://www.mystalker.info/> , using proxy services to hide their identity, which continues to publish hate, defamatory material and is hiding its website owner details. These type of people are operating outside of the law and are able to do so because proxy services are not banned. i wish to support ICANN proposal to ban proxy services so that legitimate people and businesses can operate online, not anonymous stalkers who currently are able to evade the law. I believe that such people will stop their course of conduct ONCE ICANN bans proxy services permanently. yours faithfully, maryann martinek www.maryannmartinek.com P Please consider the environment before printing this e-mail The information contained in this email is private and confidential.
